It looks like GTA V managed to surprise us by overcoming even the most optimistic estimations about the sales it would make.
Grand Theft Auto V was released in the markets in September 2013 and since then the total number of games sold is calculated to be around 45 millions. The data comes directly from the distribution company Take Two Interactive and was released during the presentation of its financial results. Also note that 10 of the 45 million sales were only for Playstation 4 and Xbox One. This gives away a pretty good impression about the sales on computers.
With the release of GTA V on computers the sales will probably get even higher and is most likely that they will break some kind of record. Furthermore, users seem to enjoy the single player mode as much as the online virtual world that is offered by Rockstar on GTA V. According to Take Two Interactive, people seem to spend time on the online world and money (virtual in-game money) which shows some traffic.
Grand Theft Auto V came first in sales for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 while in 2014 it was fourth in the American markets according to Venture Beat. What is more interesting is that Take Two Interactive had an income of 531,1 million dollars just for the last three months of 2014.
So far, the game has exceeded our expectations so now we can wait more. It is in fact a great game that once again Rockstar brings to us. A game that made quite a big fuss even before it was released. We might not know exactly what to expect next but we are certain that Rockstar has a few more tricks to pull out of its sleeve.
