Representatives of the company Take-Two, including the studio Rockstar Games, announced that worldwide sales of Grand Theft Auto V exceeded just 150 million units.
With this result, GTA V still ranks second in the games with the highest sales in history. The top spot has long been held by Minecraft, which, almost ten years after its premiere, has sold over 200 million copies.
However, you probably wonder how Grand Theft Auto V looks from the perspective of the entire series. Take-Two also announced that the entire GTA series currently has sales of 350 million copies. This means that, although there are 11 games from this universe on the market, GTA V alone has already made 42% of sales.
Grand Theft Auto V made its debut on PS3 and Xbox 360 in September 2013. The PS4 and Xbox One versions were released in November 2014. Pc players could check this title only in April 2015. We also know the release date on PS5 and Xbox Series X – November 11, 2021. The debut of the next-generation equipment is likely to boost the already impressive sales figures even more.
If you’re wondering why Grand Theft Auto VI has not been officially announced so far, the continued sales of the fifth installment may be one of the reasons. Rockstar does not have to hurry since GTA V sells hot cakes almost eight years after its premiere.
