GTAV To Become Fastest-Selling Title In UK In Three Months?
Grand Theft Auto V has already broken sales records around the world, and it may be on track to break yet another.
According to European sales tracker GfK Chart-Track, Take-Two Interactive's blockbuster title from 2013 has become the fourth-best selling game in UK history. GTAV was atop the sales charts in that region from the moment it launched in September up until Christmas. The uber-popular FIFA 14 finally knocked it from its perch.
But the game is still selling at a rapid clip, and GfK Chart-Track estimates that at the current pace, GTAV will become the #1 top-selling video game of all time in the UK in only three more months. Many were wondering how the latest GTA would fare, especially after a five-plus-year hiatus (GTAIV launched in April 2008). Additionally, the world had gone FPS crazy since then, as Call of Duty became the biggest name in gaming, so GTAV might've faced a few hurdles.
If it did, though, it cleared 'em all in fine style. In our recently posted Game of the Year Awards 2013, GTAV won the illustrious Best Action/Adventure Game title.
