Dontnod’s gothic vampire tale, aptly titled Vampyr, has topped the UK sales charts, becoming the third new IP to do so this year according to GFK Chart-Track.
This is also a notable achievement as it makes publisher Focus Home Interactive “the smallest publisher to have ever done so since the charts began,” according to product manager Tom Butler on Twitter. Focus Home also became one of the few AA publishers to top the list along with 505 Games. You can read our thoughts on Vampyr here.
