In another quiet week for new releases, Activision Blizzard’s 'Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy' makes it 4 weeks on the trot at No1 in the All Formats Chart. The last time this happened was when yet another title from Activision Blizzard – 'Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' made it 5 weeks running at the end of 2016 and start of 2017, which is at No17 this week.
The London Games Festival will return to the capital between 5 April to 15 April 2018, following a hugely successful second festival in 2017.
The festival team have also announced that this year's event saw over 50,000 people attend 40 different events across 20 London venues.
Ukie have once again teamed up with gamesindustry.biz to host the world-class Careers Bar at EGX in September - and we're looking for expert speakers, panellists and careers advisers to be on hand during the event.
The Ukie Careers Bar will, as always, be the centre of the GamesIndustry.biz Careers Fair, the leading careers destination at EGX where established professionals can scope out their next career move, and future games talent - working across any discipline - can learn more about securing a place in the industry.
