Rockstar's mammoth Grand Theft Auto V was the best selling game in the UK during January 2020, selling more digital and physical copies than during January 2019.
Almost seven years after the official release, Rockstar's open-world action game Grand Theft Auto V is still regularly found on the top 10 sales charts all over the world. For example, on UK physical sales charts, GTA V is always just behind the newest heavy hitters such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and FIFA 20, who traditionally perform very well, week in, week out.
The latest chart shows that Grand Theft Auto V managed to overtake both of these titles in January 2020. Grand Theft Auto V was the best selling game in the United Kingdom during the month, with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and FIFA 20 just behind.
As reported by Niko Partners' analyst Daniel Ahmad , Grand Theft Auto V sold more digital and physical copies in the previous month than in the same period during last year. Ahmad reports that GTA V managed to ship 2.13 million copies, which is still, 8.3 per cent down year-on-year.
It is safe to say that these are incredible results for Rockstar Games, who still continue to support the online part of Grand Theft Auto V - GTA Online. And with these numbers, no wonder company are still completely silent on the next instalment in one of the biggest gaming franchises of all time.
