Grand Theft Auto V is such a big sales juggernaut that it's now even outpacing the sales estimates of publisher Take-Two. Relating to the new current-gen version (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S) specifically, EVP of finance Hannah Sage told GamesIndustry.biz it "exceeded expectations".
However, the site also notes that overall, GTA V sold roughly the same number of copies as it did during past quarters — around five million. This may suggest the company didn't have high sales expectations for the current-gen version. Total sales are now at a whopping 165 million.
On PS5, GTA V is a cheap PS4 to PS5 upgrade until 14th June 2022. If you own a PS4 copy, it costs just £8.75/$9.99 to grab the single player portion of the game, and then GTA Online is free. This changes after the aforementioned date, however. The price will then rise to £34.99/$39.99 for both the offline and online modes combined.
Elsewhere in Take-Two's latest financial reports, both WWE 2K22 and Tiny Tina's Wonderlands are said to have also surpassed their sales targets. While specific stats weren't shared, the former has beaten out the first four week sales of WWE 2K19 and WWE 2K20. Meanwhile, Tina Tina's Wonderlands is "viewed as the best new franchise launch from 2K in several years" with almost 30 per cent of its player base being new to the Borderlands series.
As for its other franchises, Red Dead Redemption 2 sold another one million copies to take it up to a total of 44 million units sold, while NBA 2K22 topped 10 million sales. Looking ahead, Take-Two plans to release six "immersive core games": The Quarry, Marvel's Midnight Suns, Kerbal Space Program 2, and more NBA, WWE, and PGA Tour titles.
