Remedy Entertainment’s highly anticipated release, Quantum Break, has taken out the top spot on the UK game sales charts this week, becoming the first Microsoft-published title to do so since the release of Halo 5: Guardians in November 2015.
“We’re delighted that Quantum Break has been so well received by fans and critics, it’s a testament to the hard work, ambition and commitment of the team at Remedy that the game is already surpassing expectations,” said Jon Edney of Xbox Studios. “The game has already built up a passionate fanbase and we look forward to seeing and hearing about their experiences in Riverport.”
Quantum Break took the top spot by narrowly beating Codemasters’ Dirt Rally, which also enjoyed a strong first week of sales. The Division was subsequently pushed back to third place.
Here are the UK charts’ top 10 selling games for the weeking ending on April 9. This list does not include digital sales and is therefore not representative of all UK game sales:
