Grand Theft Auto V was the third best selling game in Europe during October despite competition from huge new releases according to the official sales charts. The monthly report conducted by GSD and published via GamesIndustry.biz has just been released and sheds light on how GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 have been doing in the past month compared to the previous ones.
The sales chart takes into account all copies sold both digitally and physically across Europe. Last month saw the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, FIFA 23 and Gotham Knights yet GTA V slotted in above the latest Gotham-set game. Rockstar’s behemoth moved up a place from 4th in September.
In September, Grand Theft Auto V was the runner up in the UK digital and physical charts reported by GSD and GI.biz. Only FIFA 23 which released in that month sold more copies which shows the staying power of the game.
This all comes after GTA V sales did actually slow down for the first time in several years as we reported on here recently. As we come out of the quiet summer period for the games industry, we’re seeing GTA V still hold up against new titans that have a new yearly release. It is possible that as more and more people are getting their hands on the current gen consoles (PS5 & Xbox Series X/S), they are picking up GTA V’s new version to experience an upgraded Los Santos.
Red Dead stays sixth
Red Dead Redemption II, another incredible title from Rockstar Games, stayed in 6th place in October European charts. Meanwhile it came in 7th during September’s UK charts. It has just been announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold over 46 million copies as we reported on here.
