Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games, has revealed that GTA 5 has sold over 180 million units. Even more impressive is five million of these were only sold within the last three months, nearly a decade after the game was first released.
The news comes from Take-Two’s latest earnings report, which stated that GTA 5 has reached over one billion dollars in retail sales “faster than any entertainment release in history.” The report also states that the franchise has sold over 400 million units and that “active development for the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series is well underway.” Although no date was given for the next GTA, it’s known that Rockstar has been working on another installment. Late last year, a massive leak showed off early gameplay footage and screenshots of GTA 6.
In addition to GTA 5 reaching over 180 million units, the Red Dead Redemption series has also seen continued success. The franchise has sold over 75 million units worldwide, while Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold over 53 million units and is the second best-selling title in the US based on dollar sales in the last five years.
