Will GTA 6 break GTA V sales record?

Recommended Posts

Zidane500

GTA V was the third best selling video game of all time with over 110 million sales. Do ya'll think GTA 6 will break this record?

It can happen, first they need to build up the hype, and second : the game must be very good, Gta VI could easely break records if they do the right thing

Also it would need to be special, not only for the gta series, but for all games in general, if the game stand out from the others, it is sure to beat Gta V

Uh, yes.

 

GTAV was released right at the end of Generation 7. At the time, there was about ~160 million consoles sold. That's a HUGE sale right off the floor.

 

We're now 6 years removed from Gen 8 release and around ~150million consoles sold. A lot of people purchased GTAV AGAIN, myself included.

 

With around ~310million consoles and 100million copies sold on consoles - last estimate was 10million for pc, nearly 1 in 3 consoles purchased GTAV .

 

 

In order for GTA6 to break V's record or sell over 100mil copies, there would have to be over 300million PS5/XB2 consoles sold. Which there won't be.

 

 

So, yes, @Forza_GTA is correct. It would only happen if it was released on current gen and then re-released on next gen, like how V was. But GTA6 will be next gen only.

but the real question is.., who the f.., cares..,

 

that is not enough reason to prove that it will release on current gen..,

 

it's only a statistic..,

which is largely controlled by the amount of returning players.., and new players on to the market..,

 

the whole multiple purchases also works against you when people also started on current gen, and bought when pc releases..,

 

a game releasing on many platform may boost the number of those repurchasing.., but it does not validate that it will release on current gen.., t hats alot of straw in that man..,

 

the real question is.., if there is any..,

 

Will there be a big enough influx of new players(people who have not. or people who have aged to where they have interest or purchasing power)

and how many old/returning players will also purchase..,

 

[asides that.., it's not really a metric or score or count that matters unless you for some weird reason want to prove something that can only be proved by other things.., or cant.., one thing for sure.., GTA NEXT will sell well..,]

Probably. There are more people playing games now, than in 2013. The numbers will only continue to grow. It may not have the same numbers at launch, but it'll probably grow at a faster rate. Especially if the gap from GTA 6 to GTA 7 will be just as long, likely even longer. Who knows.

Maybe maybe not. I think we may see a drop. Expect something like RDR2 numbers. But idk it's GTA.

There won't be enough consoles over time. With a ratio of 3 consoles to 1 GTAV, Gen 9 would have to have a combined amount of over ~330mil consoles. Not happening

 

Even if Gen 9 had similar numbers from the last two, 150 & 160mil, it would be pushing 70% of them owning GTA6 to come close. Over twice the amount.

We'll probably see another console before the next one, so no.

 

 

 

Plus, let's not forget some of us 'game share' with family/friends. Which basically means, one game for two consoles. That obviously makes it even more difficult.

 

 

All in all, not gonna happen.

Great job on doing real and credible research on when GTA 6 should come out, etc. Some people took Zelnick’s comments too literally although from a financial perspective it’d make more sense to keep the next GTA around for a while. Luckily however that gives Rockstar more time for future entries.

100%.

 

GTA markets itself at this point. GTA V is still to this day above most games in digital sales, and those games are recent compared to GTA V which came out years ago. I think GTA VI will be that big title that really shows off what the next generation can do to it's full potential.

No. GTA V has literally sold over 100 million copies, it's the best selling game of all time after Tetris and Minecraft.

 

It came out at the perfect time for the delayed crossgen release, plus the delayed PC release, and the online blew up before the genre of MMOlites (Destiny, The Division etc) became a thing.

 

GTA VI will obviously be a massive hit but it won't even come close to matching V's sales.

I am quite sure that AGENT would have decimated the globe and attacked bowels for generations.

 

Having said that, this new installment will output a historic caliber of kinetic energy, the first of which will slip through your eyes, as they are then thrust into the 8K oasis. 🙂

 

There is the Lexus ‘December to Remember’ end-of-the-year sales event/United States advertising campaign, and then there is this December. 2,019 steps ought to be a global footprint because history will find international love. With three steps into Gregorian’s story of December, 2,019 steps will have been hit with barrages of conjecture. 

However, conjecture’s script is thinning, but ambition would like to override the usual with the unusual: the beholder arming the script with words his/herself and serving as the ‘ESP’ ‘Executive Simulation Pacemaker’. Setting his/her pace... the game of control, whilst realism outweighs and outwits the near-misses of contenders, who’s dream has already been taken. 
 

Merry Christmas to all who will be brought before the Secret Santa, via the Polar Express. If you just believe. 🙂

 

May you enjoy all of what Rockstar Games will gift you. 🎉 They are true crusaders. To them: thank you, far and near, for Pricedown’s legacy.

at the end of the day it's still to early to tell.., and while R* has not earned any good will woth the many issues around online.., and SP..,

 

saying that it can only top in sales of its a multigenerational title is largely false due to how many factors exists that can disprove that..,

(which can only be taken to test if:

GTAVI/NEXT/ONLINE.., is on next gen consoles only.., ie PS5, and whatever is next for xbox..,

 

if it doesn't only release for that generation of consoles.., then nothing is proven in the end..,)

again.., way to early to tell..,

 

the one question that can be answered..,

@GTA3Rockstar

do you take your stance due to believing that to be true..,(which that it is without a doubt that repurchased are solely the one cause of GTAV's sales.., and cannot be best in any other form..,)

 

or do you side with Forza_GTA in that GTA NEXT will release on current consoles and next gen which would make their stance on this subject benifit that belief..,

(which they have stated multiple times)

 

I only ask this cause it has been abit blurry if you actually believe in that the sales number can only be beat by repurchases..,

 

or if you agree believe/want GTA NEXT to be a multigenerational title..,(like V)

Here's my take on the whole thing. We know a little about next gen consoles but one of the things is that any game released on PS4/X1 will be playable on PS5/Scarlett. Would it work the other way? Maybe at first, like usual, but eventually, any game made will only be on PS5/Scarlett because of their power. GTA6 being one of those games.

 

I was comparing GTAV to GTA6 in another topic. We knew about GTAV in 2011, two years before release. We didn't know about any next gen console until early/E3 2013. That's a complete opposite scenario with GTA6 and Next gen. We know about next gen before GTA6. Which is why it'll be next gen only.

 

Don't get me wrong, GTA6 will sell greatly regardless, but for it to break V's 115mil number? I'm highly doubtful because GTAV was just in a perfect spot to get a huge sale off the floor with Gen 7, then re-released on Gen 8 one year later and pc six months after that. I'm sure they'll be happy if it reaches 75% of V's total sales, which would be around 85mil.

 

 

Personally, I hope it's next gen only. The game would just be ridiculous considering how ridiculous RDR2 is.

I was asking for a simple answer.., if you said pretty much you thought that it required a multigenerational title..,

then pretty much id leave it at that.., since we pretty much c ant tell much how much the next GTA will sell..,

 

most of us would forget about this thread anyways when the next GTA releases.., [only R*, T2, and investors.., really.., really care about that number..,]

 

[The other option would just lead me to think that it's best i not try talking in this conversation, since it'll go in circles.., and go nowhere..,]

 

here's hoping R* don't disappoint..,(but they will.., in someway.., but not majority so, or in quality..,)

VI won't sell more copies than V if it's only released on one gen. A large number of V's sales were from people buying it twice.

 

PS3 + XBox 360 = 171 million consoles

 

PS4 + XBox One = 149 million consoles

 

That's 320 million consoles that V could be played on.

Now I think of it I do agree with those people saying GTA V hit the lottery in terms of when it released. It was huge on last gen, then current gen game came out and then they released PC. Although I would not be surprised if they make it available on PS4 & Xbox One as well, in fact it's probably a given, so it could basically be the same thing all over again, only bigger.

They don't want to calculate how much GTA 6 could hypotetically sell, so they're asking us.

I can’t see it breaking the GTAV record tbh. I think they’ve waited too long in between V and VI.

While I’m not sure GTA 6 will break GTA 5’s initial records (unless it ends up as a current gen game) I think over the long run, there’s a very good chance it will outsell GTA 5. Only more and more people around the world are getting into games. Also, looking at Red Dead Redemption 2, GTA 6 will presumably have better graphics, a better map, a more interactive and breathing world, and a more stable and long-term intended Online, than GTA 5.

They won’t top the sales. V is a mammoth. No modern game will ever take over it. If anything has a chance it’s fortnight and that’s not even close. They’ll top the quality though, every time. True innovators of the form.
