Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V returns to the top of the UK software charts, 1581 days after its initial release.

This week’s UK video game top-twenty sees a small shuffle of the pack, with enough change to catapult Grand Theft Auto V to the No.1 spot some 226 weeks after it was originally released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The game was the third best-selling title across Europe last year – beaten only by FIFA 18 and Call of Duty: WWII – and in September was also confirmed by NPD Group as the best-selling game of all time in North America.

The rest of this week’s chart consists of the usual suspects, with Call of Duty: WWII and FIFA 18 dropping to second and third, respectively.

Elsewhere, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe jumps seven places to five, and the Xbox One edition of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds rises one place to six.

Rockstar’s other crime epic, the reissue of LA Noire, is also proving remarkably resilient. A little retail discounting has no doubt helped to boost the game up six places to 12.

You can see the full UK chart for the week ending January 13, 2018 at the GFK Chart Track website.
