Grand Theft Auto V continues to grow. The open-world action game has now surpassed 165 million copies sold as of March 31, 2022, marking an increase of 5 million copies since Take-Two last revealed a sales figure in February 2022. .
The entire GTA series has now sold more than 375 million copies, Take-Two announced. The most recent version of GTA V was released in March for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. However, Take-Two did not reveal a specific sales number for this new generation version. Another GTA game, GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, launched for the Nintendo Switch in February, but Take-Two did not share a sales number.
Another notable GTA release in the last quarter was the new standalone edition of GTA Online for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, as well as the subscription program, GTA+.
Take-Two also revealed a new sales number for Red Dead Redemption II; it has now sold 44 million copies, which is up from 43 million in February. The series sold 67 million copies, which means that 2010’s Red Dead Redemption 1 sold around 23 million copies.
Both GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 make even more money from microtransaction sales within their online modes. And if Take-Two makes more money from microtransactions, CEO Strauss Zelnick can get a bigger bonus.
For Take-Two’s fiscal fourth quarter, the company reported $930 million in revenue, which was an 11% increase compared to last year. Recurring consumer spending, which includes microtransactions, increased 1% and represented 64% of total revenue. Take-Two made an overall profit of $110 million for the period, which was substantially lower than the profit of $218.8 million this quarter last year.
GTA 6 is now in development, but Take-Two didn’t mention it in their earnings release. Even though development is “well advanced,” it’s not expected to be released for some time.
