Arkham Knight First Week UK Sales Tops The Witcher 3

The fastest-selling game of the year so far used to be The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Not anymore. At least in the UK, the new leader is Batman: Arkham Knight; according to Chart-Track, first-week sales for Rocksteady's new gem have topped CD Projekt Red's RPG in the same time period.

That's not too surprising, though, as one is simply more marketable to a larger audience; The Witcher 3, despite all the hype, is still really for the hardcore gamer. The new Batman effort also took out previous #1 LEGO Jurassic World, which came in at #2 on the overall list. Here's the top 10 for top UK performers last week:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Lego Jurassic World
  • The Elder Scrolls Online
  • Yoshi's Woolly World
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Call of Duty: Advance Warfare
  • FIFA 15
  • Destiny
  • Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward

Very deserving,the game is so polished and so fun that I take intentional brakes so I don't finish it too soon.Is too bad this is the last one,maybe Rocksteady can move on to Justice league.

I will be playing this game once I get off my Elder Scrolls Online binge I am currently enjoying.

My son has it and the game looks like a blast.
