Take-Two Interactive held their earnings call recently and revealed new sales information for Grand Theft Auto and their other series. GTA V has now sold over 185 million copies which is up five million from what they revealed in May.
GTA V will be turning 10 years old this Fall where it first released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game is now available on three different generations of consoles being the two we mentioned and Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series XlS, and PlayStation 5.
CEO Strauss Zelnick stated Grand Theft Auto V outperformed what they initially anticipated and GTA Online had more players online in the month of June than any other time that wasn’t during the COVID pandemic.
Take-Two also said they are positioning themselves for a significant inflection point in fiscal 2025. And they believe it will include new record levels of operating performance. A game that would give a nice boost in sales for Rockstar and Take-Two is Grand Theft Auto 6. Fiscal Year 2025 for Take-Two Interactive is April 24 through March 2025 so the assumptions is that GTA 6 will be releasing around October to December 2024.
Rockstar Games recently announced they’re bringing Red Dead Redemption to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on August 17.
