Grand Theft Auto V just won't stop selling. Another 5 million shipped in the last quarter is crazy. And people wonder where GTA VI is. Why bother when GTAV keeps on selling.

Seriously! We all joke about Todd Howard constantly re-selling Skyrim to us, but it has NOTHING on GTA V

Same applies to Mario Kart & Elder Scrolls. Why rush out new entries when the older entries are still selling?

GTAVI, ES6, or MK9? Which will come out first?

Torpoleon trunkswd (on 02 August 2021)

Probably MK9 (hoping for it to be a Switch 2 launch title). Could see GTA 6 being next and then ES6. Ultimately, I could see all these titles launching between 2024 and 2026.

Shiiiiit, we may get to MK11 before either of the others

It starts to feel like "who still doesn't have this game?" 150 million is nothing compared to hardware that can play gta5, but most games just naturally slow down.

It has consistently been selling 5 million or more every quarter. Crazy numbers with how old it is. 99.9% of games don't even sell 5 million lifetime.

Oddly enough, I still don't, lol. I feel like many people have double and even triple dipped to own it on every platform it gets released on. Not to take away from its impressive sales mind you.

everyone that plays it, their younger brothers and releatives catches on. And their friends. It's a cycle that never ends.

The real news here is RDR2, really happy to see the game will reach 40M pretty soon, maybe even 50M in the future, which almost guarantee a sequel or maybe a gem in the same genre.

I'm not touching the game till they announce a ps5 patch for 60fps

Me too, just waiting for a patch or re-release, which we know will happen. Would be beautiful if there could be a 60fps 1080p with ray tracing.

Who is still buying GTA V? I wonder what the platform breakdown is.

gtotheunit91 Signalstar (on 02 August 2021)

I know just on Steam alone the game has over 200,000 concurrent players on a daily basis and it goes on sale to $10-$15 all the time. Plus with the modding community and the game also available on the Epic Games Store, I imagine PC is one of the bigger sellers nowadays

Hell, you could be right! I remembered PS4 was beating PS3 sales and destroying xblock 360/one sales!!

i hate the guy incharge of take 2. Honestly we should be looking forward to gta7 by now. But the houser brothers have left, working on a new open world game. And so many other games out, that honestly i would be fine without a gta game again. Let them keep milking it for the next 8 years.
