Feb. 9, 2018

Take-Two Interactive announced that Grand Theft Auto 5 sold 90 million copies recently.

Grand Theft Auto 5 originally released in September 2013,it was the third best-selling game in 2017 in terms of copies sold, Take-Two added that the game was also the sixth best game last year in terms of total revenue. The company said the game has "incomparable longevity", thanks to the proliferation of its online mode, which has been supported and developed by Rockstar since 2013.

"Our excellent results were underlined by the consumer spending record in Grand Theft Auto Online and NBA 2K18 and by the continued sales of Grand Theft Auto V and the successful launch of WWE 2K18," said Take- Two presidents of general manager Strauss Zelnick VentureBeat have suggested that these "recurring" problems come from people who already own the game by buying in the game.

In 2016, Grand Theft Auto 5 was the fourth best-selling game in Forbes, with 65 million copies sold. However, if the sales of other games on the list remain as they were, the game would now be the third best game behind Minecraft and Tetris.
