UK Charts: Project Cars Outlaps Mortal Kombat X to take Top Spot

Now here’s something we did not see happening; Project Cars has dethroned Mortal Kombat X in the UK. Slightly Mad Studios’ racing simulator launched last week in Europe, and the people appear to be loving it. This is the first time in two years that a racing game has debuted in top spot (Grid 2 was the last).

Mortal Kombat X, which maintained the top spot for three consecutive weeks, slipped into the third place spot. Due to Project Cars victory, Battlefield Hardline retains its crown as the most consecutive wins of 2015. To take Hardline’s crown, a game would have to spend four consecutive weeks at the top to tie it, and then earn a fifth week to take that crown.
