Grand Theft Auto 5 has been an absolute juggernaut for Rockstar and parent company Take-Two Interactive since pretty much the day it launched, and even now, nearly eight years on from its release, the game’s sales refuse to slow down. In the company’s recent quarterly earnings call, Take-Two revealed the updated sales figures for the open world title.

GTA 5 has now sold over 140 million copies worldwide as of December 31, up from 135 million at the end of September. In fact, GTA 5 sold more in the previous year than any other year, barring 2013, which is when it launched. GTA Online also continued to be a huge driver for revenue for Take-Two, outperforming the company’s third quarter forecasts, and seeing 28% year-over-year growth in recurrent user spending.

CEO Strauss Zelnick also confirmed that GTA Online had more players in every month and for the entirety of calendar 2020 since it launched, and also had the highest participation rate for new and returning players this year than any other year. With Grand Theft Auto 5 also set to release for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S this year, Take-Two is expecting big numbers for it and its online component in 2021 as well.

Meanwhile, Red Dead Redemption 2 also continues to sell well, and has now sold over 36 million units worldwide as of December 31, up from 34 million at the end of September.
