Chart news; Ubisoft tops The Division

Ubisoft knock themselves off the top of the chart this week as ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ topples ‘Far Cry Primal’ (-58%) and in the process becomes the biggest ever Q1 launch.  Released on Tuesday 8th March, The Division breaks an 11 year record held by ‘Gran Turismo 4’ (back in W10 2005), outselling any other title released in the first 3 months of the year.  It is also Ubisoft’s biggest ever launch of a Tom Clancy title, sitting behind ‘Watch Dogs’ and ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ as their third largest launch of all time.  ‘Far Cry Primal’ slips to No2 and with another Tom Clancy title ‘Rainbow 6: Siege’ (-30%) also down one place to No10, Ubisoft can claim 3 titles in the Top 10 this week.  Heavyweights ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops III’ (+11%) and ‘FIFA 16’ (-12%) both creep up one place to No’s 3 and 4 respectively, while ‘Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2’ (-39%) wilts slightly, down 2 places to No5 in its third week of release.  ‘Lego Marvel Avengers’ (-21%) and ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-21%) are both non-movers at No’s 6 and 7 respectively, ahead of ‘Forza Motorsport 6’ (+18%) which accelerates up 2 places to No8.  Sales of ‘The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’ drop by 84% in its second week as it falls from No2 to No9.  ‘Hitman’ makes an appearance at No29 with the boxed digital Collector’s Edition PS4 and Xbox One versions launched on Friday.
