GTA V exceeds 180 million copies sold and Red Dead Redemption 2 53 million

The 2023 fiscal year report from Take-Two Interactive, parent of Rockstar, 2K, Private Division and Zynga, shows that sales of GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 are still going pretty well despite being released years ago. In fact, the popularity that GTA V enjoys these days means that more than one does not remember that it is actually a game from the seventh generation of consoles (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360) that later reached the eighth and ninth , aside from PC, where it’s not uncommon to find it as one of the best-selling titles on Steam even today.

Sales of GTA V have remained strong over the years, leading to its appearance on three different console generations. The Rockstar title has sold some 180 million copies to date , an exorbitant amount that others can only dream of, and not only among “minor video games”, but also among sagas that have a lot of prestige both among the specialized press like the public. Obviously, the number of copies sold is not even remotely a good indicator to determine if a video game is good or not, but this is still a business and it is obvious that GTA V continues to perform well in commercial terms despite its seniority. .

But while GTA V continues to be a money maker for Take-Two Interactive, its runaway success inertia turns into a gigantic pressure for its sequel , around which there are already huge expectations not only about its possible sales. , but also because of the quality of the game itself, since the GTA saga, since the third numbered installment, has evolved to consolidate itself in the Olympus of video games.

For its part, Red Dead Redemption 2 , which was released in the fourth quarter of 2018, has sold some 53 million copies to date . It is true that the amount sold is not as impressive as that of GTA V, but it is still very good. Along with the previous installment, the Red Dead Redemption saga has sold close to 75 million copies, while GTA V accumulates 180 million of the approximately 400 million units that the saga has sold throughout its history.

Poorer are the sales of GTA Trilogy , which aimed to relaunch the great classics of the saga and has ended up writing one of the most lamentable pages in Rockstar’s history. The compilation has so far sold about ten million copies, with less than one million in the last quarter of the fiscal year. Take-Two Interactive has confirmed that it is planning to release a mobile version of the compilation, although with no specific release date for now.

As we can see, it seems that the economic situation of Take-Two Interactive is quite good at general levels. In the report it can also be verified that the NBA 2K basketball saga, fallen from grace long ago, has exceeded one hundred million copies sold , while Borderlands has sold a total of more than 80 million units and BioShock close to 42 million. .
