Grand Theft Auto V gained a place in one of the official PlayStation charts for the month of October. Sony have just released their monthly blog post listing the most downloaded PS5, PS4, free-to-play and PSVR games in North America and Europe. These monthly reports give us an idea of how GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 has been doing in the past month compared to the previous ones.
1 place up, 1 place down
In that PlayStation 5 chart for Europe, GTA V did climb a place into 4th overtaking Cyberpunk 2077 which has been a healthy boost in downloads in recent months. Grand Theft Auto V only missed out to new releases such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, FIFA 23, and Gotham Knights. This is quite impressive given how big those titles are and how they just released. Meanwhile across the Atlantic GTA V did drop one place down into seventh but this was due to NBA 2K23 releasing.
As for PS4 placements we can see another drop in PS4 downloads as more players are able to pick up their new current gen console and pick up the PS5 version of GTA 5 and GTA Online. In the USA and Canada the game dropped from 4th to 6th and 3rd to 4th in Europe.
This comes after GTA V sales did actually slow down for the first time in several years as we reported on here recently.
A similar story for Redemption
Rockstar Games’ epic western title, Red Dead Redemption II had a similar month to GTA V in which it saw it move up a place and down a couple. The game only has a PS4 version so it can only enter the PS4 charts and it went up a place from 6th to 5th in Europe last month. Only FIFA 23, GTA V, Minecraft and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II beat it.
With the release of new yearly sports games, RDR2 did tumble from 6th to 8th in the United States and Canada chart. It is still impressive to see it this far up though despite the lack of support for Red Dead Online.
It has just been announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold over 46 million copies as we reported on here.
