Grand Theft Auto V smashes through 3m sales barrier

Publish date:

Grand Theft Auto V continues to break retail records, reaching 3m UK sales faster than any game before it.

Rockstar‘s smash hit action game has already overtaken sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops II in just four weeks, and is now snapping at the heels of FIFA 13. It should eclipse the football game‘s sales in a matter of days.

It is now on-course to become the biggest selling title in UK video game history, a feat it should achieve comfortably.

GTA V re-claimed the UK No.1 spot this week after EA‘s FIFA 14 spent two weeks at the top. It still sold over 100,000 units in just seven days, with some retailers still reporting low stock levels.

All data is based on MCV calculations from GfK Chart-Track reports.
