Fallout 76 was one of the most sought-after games of the year, but, unfortunately for Bethesda, it was a disaster regarding sales. On the other hand, the famous GTA 5, a game released by Rockstar Games in 2013, sold more copies in 2018 than Fallout 76.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is still a popular title among gamers, and since 2013 it has been selling better than the majority of the games released between 3013 and 2018. And that’s a significant achievement for Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive, the two companies behind the title, which are now reportedly working on GTA 6.
GTA 5 Surpassed Fallout 76 In 2018, Ending Another Excellent Year
As reported by the market research firm The NPD Group, in November, Bethesda’s title, Fallout 76, was only the fourth best-selling game of that month. In November, Battlefield 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and Red Dead Redemption 2, sold better than Fallout 76. However, throughout the year, GTA 5 sold more copies than Fallout 76.
GTA 5 has been in the news many times lately, in particular, thanks to its outstanding sales in comparison with other games. On the other hand, Fallout 76, which has been launched recently, though, did not have a good start compared to other releases this year and even with Grand Theft Auto 5.
GTA 6 Will Be The Next Installment In The Famous Series
Reportedly, Rockstar Games and Take-Tow Interactive are already working on the next release, Grand Theft Auto 6. According to rumors, GTA 6 would come out by 2022. Also, some recent GTA 6 leaks indicated that the sequel would come back to Vice City and would feature a female main character for the first time in the history of the franchise.
According to other rumors, Grand Theft Auto 6 would actually boast all the previous cities in the GTA series, or at least it would come out with two maps.
In the meantime, Rockstar Games celebrates another excellent year for GTA 5 which succeeded to sell more copies than Fallout 76, one of the most sought-after of 2018.
