Unsurprisingly, Grand Theft Auto V gross sales have but to decelerate in any vital means. Take-Two Interactive’s newest earnings report reveals that gross sales of the Rockstar behemoth lately crossed the 130 million copies offered milestone. This isn’t any small feat, after all. Red Dead Redemption 2 continues to carry out above and past, too. The prequel now sits at roughly 31 million copies offered worldwide.
Especially spectacular is what number of copies of each titles have been offered since Take-Two’s earlier earnings report in January. At the time, the 2 Rockstar adventures had moved a combined 150 million units. Going again even additional, date from November 2019 confirmed GTA V sales at 115 million, whereas Red Dead 2 topped 26.5 million.
In a short Twitter breakdown, Niko Partners Senior Analyst Daniel Ahmad notes the Grand Theft Auto franchise as a complete quantities to 325 million gross sales. Thus, the fifth mainline entry alone counts for 40 % of the collection’ whole gross sales figures. No doubt this explicit stat will proceed to climb within the years forward.
See Ahmad’s put up on the matter beneath:
Just checked the numbers and the GTA franchise has offered greater than 325 million models in whole.
130m means GTA V is 40% of whole GTA sport gross sales.
Borderlands round 60m, Red Dead round 52m, Bioshock round 35m, NBA almost 100m.

While GTA V continues to realize unbelievable success, many a fan patiently awaits GTA VI. Reportedly, the long-awaited follow-up is presently within the works at Rockstar Games. It allegedly being in early growth means Rockstar will doubtless stay silent in regards to the challenge for fairly a while, although.
