GTA 5 on PS5 Sells Even Better Than Expected
Grand Theft Auto V has been such a massive commercial success that it is currently exceeding even the sales projections provided by the game’s publisher, Take-Two. The executive vice president of finance, Hannah Sage, stated to GamesIndustry.biz that the new current-gen version “exceeded expectations.” This especially refers to the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S.
On the other hand, the website states that altogether, Grand Theft Auto V sold approximately the same amount of copies as it did during previous quarters, which is approximately five million. This may imply that the corporation did not have particularly high sales expectations for the version of the product that is currently in production. The grand total of all sales has now reached a staggering 165 million.
On PS5, Grand Theft Auto V is available as a discounted upgrade from PS4 to PS5 until June 14th, 2022. If you already possess a copy of the game on PS4, you can purchase the single-player campaign for either £8.75 or $9.99, and then you can play GTA Online for free. However, this will alter after the date that was previously mentioned. After that, the price for playing the game both offline and online will be raised to £34.99/$39.99 respectively.
According to other aspects of Take-most Two’s recent financial reports, both WWE 2K22 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands are believed to have likewise exceeded the sales goals that they had set for themselves. The former has outsold both WWE 2K19 and WWE 2K20 in their first four weeks of sales, despite the fact that exact sales figures were not made public. While this is going on, Tina Tina’s Wonderlands is being hailed as “viewed as the best new franchise launch from 2K in several years,” and roughly thirty percent of its player base is comprised of people who have never played any of the Borderlands games before.
