Grand Theft Auto V Officially The Best-Selling Video Game In The United States
Grand Theft Auto V is ridiculously fun, full of mayhem, and sometimes destruction. Other times, it’s all about the best glitches and seeing how realistic you can drive through the streets of Los Santos and everywhere in-between. Rockstar and Take-Two Interactive certainly know how to keep things fresh with the regular flow of new content from game modes, double GTA$ weekends, cars, and more. It then comes as no surprise that Take-Two recently reported their revenue for the quarter, revealing how successful GTA V has been.
It’s now officially the best selling video game title across the United States having sold over 85 million copies according to the NPD Group (a market research company). This is the official press release statement from the publisher:
Grand Theft Auto V has now sold in more than 85 million units. According to The NPD Group, Grand Theft Auto V is now the all-time best-selling video game, both in revenues and units, based on combined U.S. digital and physical sales across PC, console and portable.”
Additionally, Take-Two noted that this has been the “best quarter yet” in terms of revenue for the company with thanks shared between, GTA V, GTA Online, WWE SuperCard, XCOM 2, NBA 2K17, and WWE 2K17 as the primary contributors. “Grand Theft Auto Online delivered its best quarter yet,” said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. “Net Bookings from Grand Theft Auto V grew year-over-year.”
