THE LATEST EARNINGS CALL BY TAKE-TWO INTERACTIVE REVEALED THE NUMBER OF UNIT SALES FOR GRAND THEFT AUTO V, RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2, AND MORE.
Take-Two Interactive’s latest financial report suggests a record-breaking net booking of $2.99 billion, thanks to a bunch of best-selling titles in the company’s line-up such as Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Borderlands 3.
According to the report, Grand Theft Auto V’s sales have surpassed 130 million units, which is an outstanding number for both the company and the GTA franchise regarding the fact that the game has launched nearly seven years ago. With Rockstar Games supporting GTA Online with tons of content updates since its release, the game still feels alive with a great amount of player base.
Aside from Grand Theft Auto V, the latest hit from Rockstar Games, Red Dead Redemption 2, has reached 31 million unit sales in less than two years after its launch. Although Red Dead Online isn’t as successful as GTA Online in case of the content it offers, Rockstar Games have been trying to add more creative modes and options to the game as of this year.
Going over the titles published by 2K Games, NBA 2K20 has the best performance with 12 million unit sales, which is 33% more compared to its predecessor. By a small margin, Borderlands 3 is the second-best title, selling nearly 10 million units since its release.
Last but not least, the report also provided a look at the sales of titles from Private Division, which includes The Outer Worlds with 2.5 million unit sales so far. The game is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with the Switch version coming next month, which could help the number of sales to reach 3 million units.
