Grand Theft Auto V Sales Surpass 90 Million Units

Take-Two swings to profit, has high hopes for Red Dead Redemption 2

Grand Theft Auto V broke records when it first released in 2013 and it hasn't left the best seller charts since.

Later, Take-Two said that 2017 was the best year in the history of Grand Theft Auto Online and that last December was the month with the highest number of active users. During which we learn that not only did Grand Theft Auto V reach the aforementioned 90 million units milestone, but sold 15 million units within 2017 alone. Grand Theft Auto 5 sales and in-game digital purchases were also the biggest contributors to the publisher's overall revenue even though it had newer titles National Basketball Association 2K18 and WWE 2K18.

The latest numbers come courtesy of Take Two's recent investor conference call where it detailed its fortunes for the past fiscal quarter.

It is not odd to see Grand Theft Auto V at the top of the charts of popularity in the United States and the United Kingdom, so we doubt you will be surprised when we say that it is one of the most popular games in history.

Grand Theft Auto V is now available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Despite now being available on current-gen consoles, the fact still remains that Grand Theft Auto V debuted on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2013.

The company said one of its main focuses-expanding digital sales-is on track, stating that recurrent consumer spending (purchases of DLC, in-game currency and microtransactions) grew 64 percent year-over-year and accounted for 32 percent of total net revenue.

With things the way they are, Grand Theft Auto V breaking 100 million is pretty much a forgone conclusion.
