GTA V Sold Over 400,000 Copies During Lockdown In Just The UK

Even though the game first released back in 2013, GTA V continues to sell all across the world, especially in the UK.

As businesses continue to struggle during the global pandemic, the video game industry continues to thrive now that people need stuff to keep them occupied while they are at home. This is especially true for sales of video games in the UK and you can probably guess which game is on the list. Yep, GTA V.

The Entertainment Retailers Association shared sales data between the dates of March 23 to June 13.

During the lockdown in the UK, GTA V has continued to sell incredibly well. The game sold 438,902 copies during the lockdown alone. The game has shipped a massive 135 million copies worldwide for all platforms and I can guarantee that number is still going to grow.

Other than Grand Theft Auto, Activision’s Call of Duty Modern Warfare and EA’s FIFA 20 continue to sell like hotcakes. FIFA was the best selling game during the lockdown and sold 506,572 copies while Modern Warfare sold 474,902 copies.

The ERA gathered data for both physical and digital sales. However, some companies did not share their digital sales. Nintendo and Bethesda decided not to supply them with download numbers. As pointed out by Eurogamer, this is probably why Animal Crossing is farther down the list with only 206,069 copies sold.

Anyways, here is the top 40 in terms of sales data for all of entertainment during the lockdown in the UK:
