Grand Theft Auto V was the ninth best selling game in the UK during November following strong 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 the United Kingdom on all platforms. Last month saw the release of God of War Ragnarok, Pokémon Violet & Scarlet, Sonic Frontiers and Football Manager 2023. Pair these with behemoths like FIFA 23 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare II, it did not help GTA V nor RDR2. In October, we found GTA V in 4th place but now it is down in 9th during the biggest month of game releases in 2022.
With a new content update set to release imminently, this could boost the sales of GTA V in the month of December so stay tuned for a report on how GTA V did in the new year.
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 drops a few
Red Dead Redemption II, another incredible title from Rockstar Games, dropped a few places in the November charts for the UK. During October, it kept 6th place for two months in a row but now gamesindustry.biz reports it is down to 13th place. This follows our report that Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online recorded its highest ever concurrent player count at the end of November. It was also recently revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 has sold over 46 million copies as we reported on here.
