Grand Theft Auto 5 is best-selling game of all time in US

'Grand Theft Auto V' Passes 'Wii Sports' As The Best-Selling Video Game Ever In The US GTA V Has Shipped 85 Million Copies; Beats Wii Sports

This is why it doesn't come as a surprise to learn that GTA V might be the best-selling video game of all time. Players do not care about how old the game is though, as the updates to GTA Online keep it interesting, and neither does publisher Take-Two Interactive, as Grand Theft Auto V continues to rake in real money from microtransactions. "According to The NPD Group, Grand Theft Auto V is now the all-time best-selling video game, both in revenues and units, based on combined US digital and physical sales across PC, console and portable". If you include mobile sales, only Minecraft (122 million) and Tetris (170 million) have sold more copies than the latest entry in the GTA series.

Take-Two increased its adjusted revenue forecast to $1.93 billion to $2.03 billion for the year ending March 31, from $1.65 billion to $1.75 billion.

Next year, Take-Two will oversee the launch of both Rockstar's next big open world game Red Dead Redemption 2 and "a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K's biggest franchises" (AKA Borderlands 3).

With Grand Theft Auto V busting through that accomplishment with a few million units to spare, it now makes the game the "all-time best-selling video game" in the U.S., according to Take-Two. Rockstar also just released a new update that adds the P-45 Nokota single-seater plane and a 1-on-1 Dogfight mode to GTA Online.

Salvation Army Kona to Hold Red Kettle Kickoff, Nov. 16
Volunteers will have the chance to ring bells with the iconic red kettle at over 37 locations around Smith County this year. Monday through Saturday through December 23 at various sites throughout La Crosse County.

The company also benefited from higher downloads of its games during the quarter, with digitally-delivered net revenue increasing 31 percent to $302.9 million.

The game, with only one month of sales, has become the best-selling sports game this year, according to research firm NPD.

In May, the company delayed the launch of "Red Dead" to spring 2018 from fall 2017, which had hurt its initial full-year forecast.
