Despite the game’s overwhelming sales, it still has not managed to unseat FIFA 14 from the number one spot. FIFA 14 and GTA V have experienced a 68% and 34% drop in sales, respectively.

Grand Theft Auto V was developed by Rockstar North and and published by Rockstar Games for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Septenber 17th, 2013.
