Will GTA VI be bigger o smaller than GTA V? (sales-wise).

Yes, it's going to reach... 18 31.03%
 
No, the game will sell we... 28 48.28%
 
Either way, T2 and Rockst... 12 20.69%
 
Total:58

So GTA VI has reached the monumentas number of 65m copies sold worldwide. That is amazing for any videogame, there are whole franchises that, after years of releasing games, haven't got CLOSE to this one game. And it's still selling, this looks like it's going to outsell Wii Sports and become the best selling console game ever released. Naturally this puts a lot of pressure to its eventual sequel.

One of the key factors of GTA VI is being released as a crossgen game, in the exact moment when both the 7th gen console games were selling strong and the 8th gen consoles were starting to grow fast. Otherwise, even for a GTA game, those numbers would have been hard to reach.

Do you think the next GTA will sell more than GTA V? Will T2 try to recreate the same conditions that made GTA V's numbers possible?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

smaller, but not by much. GTA5 had the benefit of releasing on two generations, it released at the very end of the last one, where the install base was huge (~150million) and the next one had a strong start.



For whatever reason I end up with three copies of the game (I only paid for one, friends really wanted to play with me). I don't think that will happen with GTAVI, and I know couple of people that this happened to. People really did in large repurchase the game because of an upgrade. Unless GTA VI is at the end of this generation, I doubt it. 



 

Hard to imagine.

It getting even bigger that is, though I wouldn't really bet against it, because who knows. Where is the roof on this thing. It's like betting against Splatoon .



I think it will sell really good but GTA V came out on 5 platforms and I don't think that GTA VI will come out on ps3 and xbox360. It is very likely that GTA VI will sell about 30-40 million times

They could always wait for the release of the PS5/XBox2, but who knows when is that happening.

I would guess they have an idea on when the next gen consoles are coming. If they plan the release to allow for what they did with GTA V, I think it could come close. I doubt it hits that 65,000,000+ though.



Bigger if you look at the initial release for 5 only. Smaller if you count the remasters.

GTA VI won't outsell GTA V but will still sell very amazing imo.



I think it was a perfect storm for gta V. New systems were launching and the old ones were still selling strong. The next will sell half I predict.
