GTA V Sold 32.5M Copies While Borderlands 2 is Sitting at 8.5M
Grand Theft Auto Series has become a huge phenomenon in the gaming industry, and the latest installment in the series clearly shows that. The game got incredible reviews from all the critics worldwide and became the most selling game on the last generation of consoles.
Today, Take Two released its Q3 FY2014 (ended December 31st, 2013) financial results, with GTA V selling over 32.5 million copies to retailers and was the number 1 selling game in 2013, according to the NPD, with Take-Two the top publisher of 2013.
CEO of Take-Two Strauss Zelnick said:
Take-Two’s business continued to outperform expectations significantly during the fiscal third quarter. Our results were driven by robust holiday demand for GTA V, the franchise record-breaking launch of NBA 2K14, the successful release of WWE 2K14, and strong growth in digitally-delivered revenues led by Grand Theft Auto Online.
Take-Two was the top video game publisher of 2013, according to the NPD Group, underscoring our positive momentum over the past year.
For 2014, Take-Two has the Borderlands 2/Dishonored and Skyrim/Bioshock Infinite bundles next week while Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2 DLC is expected to arrive soon, Evolve, NBA 2K15 and WWE 2K15 have been slated for 2015 release.
