Although Sea of Thieves seems to be hav­ing prob­lems, with crit­i­cisms from pret­ty much every­one, it did man­age to start at the top dur­ing its debut week. A few oth­er titles also debuted this week and have man­aged to push some of the con­stant “top fivers” out. 

Short­ly after the launch of Sea of Thieves, A Way Out was released on March 23rd and is cur­rent­ly trail­ing the Xbox One exclu­sive in sec­ond place. Ni No Kuni ΙΙ: Revenant King­dom also debuted on March 23rd, but has land­ed in third for the week. Assas­s­in’s Creed Rouge Remas­tered, released the same day as Sea of Thieves, end­ing up in fourth its start­ing week. FIFA 18 is still creep­ing around in the top 5, which is cur­rent­ly 5th, while last week it was up a few in third. 

Thank­ful­ly, all these brand new titles being released means Grand Theft Auto V is no longer push­ing around the oth­er kids, for now. You can see the rest of the top 20 below, but as always, these sales rep­re­sent phys­i­cal copies only:
