Rockstar Games is proud to announce numerous critical and commercial achievements across multiple titles, including Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2, and a record-breaking holiday season with its two online worlds, GTA Online and Red Dead Online.
Grand Theft Auto V is the best-selling game of the past decade in U.S. dollar sales, also earning BBC’s top Game of the Decade. Seven years after release, the shared living world of GTA Online has had its biggest series of back-to-back updates ever in terms of player numbers, with new records set in December and the quarter ending December 31st, 2019, following the release of the Diamond Casino & Resort update in July 2019 and the Diamond Casino Heist in December 2019.
In addition to these blockbuster achievements, Grand Theft Auto V also hit a new record for video engagements in January, illustrating how compelling Grand Theft Auto V content is to viewers and broadcasters alike.
Red Dead Redemption 2 continues to outperform, achieving a new benchmark as the top-selling title of the last four years in U.S. dollar sales. Red Dead Online also continues to see strong growth, hitting a new peak in player numbers in December following the release of the latest update, Moonshiners, topping those numbers again in January.
Together, both award-winning titles have attained incredible benchmarks for Rockstar Games, with collective lifetime sell-in of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2 now totaling more than 150 million units worldwide.
