Grand Theft Auto V Sales Slow For First Time In Nine Years

According to the quarterly financial earnings call from Take-Two Interactive, Grand Theft Auto V sales are beginning to slow down, making it the worst quarter since the game launched nine years ago. From July-September 2022, GTA V only sold around one million units. Granted, it’s an impressive number however you look at it, but nevertheless, sales figures have sloped, and there could be a reason for that. Firstly is GTA 6, the long, long-awaited sequel finally in development from Rockstar.

Focus on GTA V could be beginning to wane in favour of the new sequel, but there’s every chance we’ll be waiting a few more years before the sequel arrives. Or perhaps the fanbase’s attention has switched to the Definitive Edition, a remastered selection of some of the earlier GTA instalments, and steered away from GTA V in the process. Whatever the reason, as of August 2022, GTA V had sold close to 170 million units.

GTA V is available on a range of platforms – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Elsewhere, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is currently available across all major platforms. Released in November 2021, the trilogy is a remastered compilation of GTA IIIGTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas.
