'GTA 5' Just Sold Another 5 Million Copies In Three Months, 155 Million Since Launch

'GTA 5' Just Sold Another 5 Million Copies In Three Months, 155 Million Since Launch

I have a deadly serious question for you right now: who in the name of sweet baby Moses is still buying GTA V

Rockstar Games’ open-world crime epic has been available on various platforms since 2013, and has sold millions upon millions of copies around the world in that time. It’s been eight years. I’d have assumed that everyone who wanted a copy would have picked one up by now, but it somehow keeps on going. You want to know why we don’t have GTA VI yet? Take a look at GTA V’s ongoing and completely ridiculous sales numbers. 

But first, check out some of the best GTA V wins and fails below!

Rockstar parent company Take-Two Interactive revealed in its latest earnings report that in the last three months alone, GTA V shifted another 5 million copies. That’s a silly amount of copies for a game that was released in 2013 to sell in 2021. It has now sold more than 155 million copies worldwide. For context, that’s twice the population of the UK, and nearly half of the total sales of the entire GTA franchise. 

Exactly who continues to buy this game and why leaves me baffled, frightened, and a little bit sick. It’s a fantastic game, but can we please give it a rest? I know we can’t, of course. The “expanded and enhanced” version of GTA V is set to release early next year for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, at which point sales will only continue to climb. There is truly no end in sight for GTA V. I just worry Rockstar’s insistence on milking it dry will ultimately harm its legacy. Let’s hope not.
