Grand Theft Auto V Exceeds 150 Million Sales

Grand Theft Auto V, the open-world behemoth, has sold an insane quantity of copies yet again. Grand Theft Auto V has sold 150 million copies worldwide, according to Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of Rockstar Games. This is another major achievement for the almost eight-year-old game, which is set for a re-release that will undoubtedly boost its popularity even further.

The re-release of Grand Theft Auto V on Xbox One and PlayStation 5 is planned for November, coupled with a separate release of the ever-popular GTA Online. It’s probable that the game will only increase in popularity over the following few years while Rockstar works on the anticipated Grand Theft Auto VI, which may be released as early as 2024 or 2025. Rockstar has previously stated that the new edition of GTA V will receive unique upgrades, although it’s unclear how large those patches will be.


In any case, many people will continue to enjoy the existing edition of the game, as Take-Two just announced that Grand Theft Auto V had sold 150 million copies worldwide. Furthermore, the entire series has sold over 350 million copies. With 11 titles in the series, Grand Theft Auto V accounts for about 42% of the franchise’s total sales. Needless to say, the game is a monster, and, understandably, Rockstar would want to keep the momentum going, especially since it’s still selling tens of millions of copies every year.

Grand Theft Auto V remains the best-selling video game of all time, coming in second only to Minecraft and ahead of Tetris. There’s no need for Rockstar to rush the next game in the series, and it appears like Grand Theft Auto VI will be the only game that can genuinely compete with it. Given the lofty expectations for the upcoming game, it’s reasonable to assume that it will be just as, if not more, impactful than the last one.

It’s not out of the realm of possibility that the game sells an extra 10 to 15 million copies by the end of the year, especially if it’s a full upgrade rather than a simple 4K update. Rockstar has yet to really show off the new Grand Theft Auto V, but it will most likely do so very soon.
