17 million, to be more precise. Even though Rockstar might find the sales of Red Dead Redemption flattering, to say the least, Grand Theft Auto IV is not to be forgotten.
Since its launch in April two years ago, the free-raoming glory that is GTA4 has broken into 17 million homes. According to Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick who was talking on the publisher’s earnings call yesterday, the company anticipates the game to have a long-lasting lifespan, especially after the highly acclaimed DLC releases The Lost & Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony that became available last year.
And while Zelnick also said that “consumer demand for the series remains to be very strong,” we wouldn’t expect any news of Grand Theft Auto V at E3 after Rockstar’s no-show announcement.
