Arkham Knight is the biggest gaming launch of the year

Batman: Arkham Knight may not have had the smoothest launch, but that hasn’t stopped it from storming to the top of the all-format gaming chart.

In fact, the latest entry in the Arkham series is the year’s biggest-selling week-one title, comfortably beating previous best-seller The Witcher 3.

It’s also the biggest-selling Arkham game in terms of week-one sales, and Warner’s fourth number one of the year so far, after Dying Light, Mortal Kombat X and LEGO Jurassic Park, the latter of which drops to second.

Elder Scrolls Online drops one place to third, above Yoshi’s Woolly World, which is this week’s second highest new entry at four.

The Witcher 3, GTA 5 and Advanced Warfare follow at five, six and seven, while FIFA 15 drops three places to eight.

Sandwiched between Destiny and Minecraft: Xbox Edition, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward makes its debut at ten.
