Grand Theft Auto V has not left the charts since it was released in September 2013, in fact it’s barely ever out of the top five, but the news that it has sold 80 million copies is still staggering. Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has also revealed that 75% of the games sold are physical discs and that newcomers to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are the ones who are keeping the game in the charts.
Mafia III has also done well by shifting 5 million copies, and NBA 2K17 has become Take-Two’s highest-selling sports title in history, selling 8 million copies.
The company has also teased “new title from one of 2K’s biggest franchise” next year, but what could that be? Clearly it won’t be anything from Rockstar, or Mafia VI, so my money is on something Borderlands or Bioshock, or possibly XCOM. Less obvious choices would be a new Midnight Club, a new Spec Ops, or Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Mermaids 2.
However, Take-Two will only have a corporate presence at E3 so don’t expect any reveals, at best there will be a Red Dead trailer at either Sony or Microsoft’s event
