GTA V Has Shipped an Impressive 185 Million Copies Worldwide

Grand Theft Auto V has now shipped an impressive 185 million copies worldwide, according to publisher Take-Two Interactive in a recent earnings report. That means since May this year, GTA V sold a further five million copies. This is also largely thanks to the game frequently going on sale across all platforms over the past few months as well as the reputation it carries as the most profitable AAA video game of all time.

Take-Two revealed the staggering sales numbers in its recent earnings call. There are numerous factors that contribute towards GTA V‘s success such as the game now launching on three different generations, not to mention the strong player base of GTA Online that’s still thriving today.

While GTA V is still selling like hot cakes, Take-Two and developer Rockstar Games has strongly indicated that the highly anticipated sequel, GTA 6, could launch within the publisher’s 2025 fiscal year, further reinforcing a previous report that the 2024 release window is likely. In that report, Take-Two projected a massive $8 billion net bookings goal for fiscal year 2025. It’s very likely that the company’s huge profits forecast could only be the result of GTA 6‘s release.

GTA V originally launched in 2013 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and allowed players to play as three protagonists: Michael, Franklin and Trevor. It would later be ported to PS4 and Xbox One with a number of visual and gameplay improvements including a first-person perspective. A PS5 and Xbox Series X/S version was also released that contained further improvements to visuals and performance.

In other news, Rockstar Games recently announced a PS4 and Nintendo Switch version of Red Dead Redemption that contains the Undead Nightmare DLC. However, fans weren’t too happy to discover that it wasn’t exactly the remaster they were expecting. Rather, it’s simply another port that doesn’t have a native PS5 version, no multiplayer and no PC availability – all being sold at $50.
