Back in May we reported that Grand Theft Auto V had sold 110 million units, which is a staggering number, but in the latest set of financial results for Q2 2020, Take-Two has revealed this number has grown by another five million in six months.
"I think as the install base grows, if you're over the age of 17, it's a must-have title," CEO Strauss Zelnick said to GamesIndustry.biz. "This title, remember, was developed for the last generation originally and then a new version was developed for this generation. And it's pretty amazing that a title originally developed for last generation remains the standard-bearer for quality more than six years later."
That wasn't all the good news though, as net revenue is up 74% year-over-year, hitting $859 million USD, with net bookings also increasing 63% to $950 million. Borderlands 3 and NBA 2K20 helped with this, and digital revenues are on the rise too, increasing 63% to $695 million, making up 73% of total net bookings.
Other milestones include Borderlands 3 hitting seven million total sales, with Red Dead Redemption 2 also achieving 26.5 million copies sold worldwide, so things seem to be looking pretty good for Take-Two.
Where can Grand Theft Auto V go from here?
