GTA 5, released in 2013, is an old game that has managed to outdo the biggest launches of 2022. The game's popularity and continuous support with a variety of content have led to its success in the gaming industry. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at the sales of the game on the PlayStation 4 and 5 platforms, and the titles that topped the list of the top 20 during the past 2022. We will also discuss the future of the Grand Theft Auto series and what we can expect from Rockstar Games in the coming years.
GTA 5 Tops the Sales List on PlayStation 4 and 5
Sony recently revealed the sales of games on the PlayStation 4 and 5 platforms, and the titles that topped the list of the top 20 during the past 2022. To the surprise of many, GTA 5 was at the top of this list, in an advanced position among the strongest releases of the year. The game managed to dominate and take second place with all its strength and merit, despite the release of huge titles during the past year 2022, such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, FIFA 23, Elden Ring, and others.
The reason for GTA 5's success is its continuous support with a variety of content that brings to the game a lot of missions, challenges, and even story events. Rockstar has focused mainly on the online phase of GTA 5, working hard to transfer the game in a decent and acceptable manner between 3 consecutive generations.
On the PlayStation 4, the game settled in second place after the game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II in the American market, and FIFA 23 in the European market. On the PlayStation 5, the game settled in the fifth and sixth place among the best downloaded games in Europe and America, respectively. These statistics only show the new generation version, although a large part of the owners of this platform own the last generation version without upgrading to the new generation version.
The Future of the Grand Theft Auto Series
With these successes achieved by Rockstar Games, attention is now directed to the future of these titles, and rather the Grand Theft Auto series. We have obtained official confirmation from the developer that the next part of the series is already under development, and there are expectations that we will get a first reveal about it during this year. The game is expected to be released next year 2024.
The old game GTA 5 has managed to outdo the biggest launches of 2022, and its success can be attributed to its popularity and continuous support with a variety of content. The future of the Grand Theft Auto series looks promising, and we can expect to see more from Rockstar Games in the coming years. Are you still playing GTA 5 and GTA online to this day?
