Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games in their latest financial results for the quarter ending June 30, 2020, announced Grand Theft Auto V has sold over 135 million units worldwide. The Grand Theft Auto series has now sold more than 330 million units worldwide in total.

This is up from 130 million units sold at the end of March. The game has sold roughly 32.5 million units in 2013, 12.5 million in 2014, 15 million in 2015, 2016, and 2016, 10 million in 2018, 20 million in 2019, and now around 15 million in 2020.

GTAV will will be launching for the next generation of consoles, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, in the second half of calendar 2021. The next generation version will feature technical, visual and performance upgrades. A standalone version of Grand Theft Auto Online will launch exclusively for the PS5 and will be free during the first three months. 

Take-Two also announced Red Dead Redemption 2 sales have topped 32 million units, NBA 2K20 sales are over 14 million units, Borderlands 3 sales are over 10.5 million units, and. The Outer Worlds sales are now over 2.8 million units.

Take-Two announced GAAP net revenue for the quarter ending June 30, 2020 increased year-over-year by 54 percent from $540.5 million to $831.3 million, while GAAP net income increased 91 percent from $46.3 million to $88.5 million. 

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick told GamesIndustry, "Look, our quarter's a little bit skewed, because catalog was 92% of our business, and obviously catalog skews heavily toward digital distribution, so 92% of our net bookings in the quarter were digitally-delivered. That's a pretty high number.

"I actually don't think there's an irreducible minimum of physical distribution. I think it depends on consumer behavior. And I've made no secret of my belief that over time, this is a digitally-delivered business. But right now, physical distribution is still a very important part of the business, and physical retailers are our partners and we see them as very important industry partners.

"But over time, I think if you look at every other entertainment medium, it's a matter of time before the business is entirely digital."

Take-Two expects digital revenue to account for 87 percent of its revenue for the year, which is up from 82 percent last year.

Take-Two increased its forecast for the full fiscal year. Net revenue forecast has been increased from a range of $2.63 billion to $2.73 billion up to $2.8 billion to $2.9 billion.

GTA5 will persevere for its 3rd gen now... Those numbers are ridiculous but give us a damn new game already

The Outer Worlds Switch port flopped hard. Last update was May, was at 2.5m then. Switch port released in June. Means it only sold 300k in the quarter, probably only like 100k on Switch. Poor optimization really killed that port.

Surprised that GTA V won't be at least an early 2021 title for next gen. Also at 92% digital sales, the trend is irreversible.
