During its earnings conference call for Q1 of fiscal year 2021, Take Two shared some new sales numbers for Grand Theft Auto 5, Red Dead Redemption 2, Borderlands 3, The Outer Worlds and NBA 2K20.
According to the team, Grand Theft Auto 5 has sold more than 135 million copies worldwide. Moreover, the game’s sales bolstered significantly by its free week on the Epic Games Store earlier in the quarter.
On the other hand, NBA 2K20 has sold more than 14 million units. Now while a lot of gamers have criticized the game’s lootboxes, it appears that this basketball game is still selling well. For instance, the NBA 2K series saw recurrent consumer spending up 126% year-over-year in Q1. So yeah, don’t expect the next NBA 2K games to have less MTX or lootboxes.
Lastly, The Outer Worlds has sold 2.8 million units so far on all platforms.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
