GTA 5 reached 170 million units sold, Red Dead Redemption reached 70 million


Publisher Take-Two Interactive has announced another major milestone for Grand Theft Auto DRAW with 170 million copies sold, while Red Dead Redemption has reached the 70 million mark.

During Take-Two’s quarterly earnings call, the company’s investor presentation revealed sales numbers for both series. As a franchise, Grand Theft Auto has sold more than 385 million units, with 170 million of those believed to be GTA 5.

As pointed out by @DomsPlaying on Twitter, that’s a smaller jump from the “nearly 170 million” mentioned in Take-Two’s final earnings report. In the same report, GTA 5 sold about 5 million VND copies in a single quarter. Talking to GamesIndustry.bizTake-Two’s chief financial officer Hannah Sage noted that the company only updated GTA 5 sales in 5 million increments.

For Red Dead Redemption, sales have increased by 2 million units since the publisher’s last earnings call. The franchise, including Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2, has sold 70 million copies worldwide.

Back in August, Take-Two had an optimistic outlook on its mobile future following its acquisition of Zynga. However, Barrons highlighted that financial forecasts have been downgraded, with a cut to the fiscal year outlook attributed to a weakening global economy and reduced mobile spending.

Despite that, both Rockstar Games series have been breaking industry records for years now. GTA 5 hit $1 billion in retail sales faster than any other entertainment release in history, a feat it achieved in just three days. And even though it’s been a decade, the developer is still pushing next generation patch for its open world heists.
