Grand Theft Auto V is the most successful piece of media ever created and a large part of this is due to GTA Online. But in 2021, how many copies has Rockstar’s open-world behemoth sold? And how many copies has the franchise sold as a whole?

There’s very little left that can be said about the success and impact that GTA 5 has had on the gaming landscape. Rockstar’s most recent addition to the long-running franchise has been a massive hit, and this is why GTA 5 is set for its third re-release, this time on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Incredibly, GTA 5 sold over 20 million copies in 2020, the most since its 2013 debut, meaning that it’s showing no signs of stopping. But just how many millions of copies have Rockstar shifted for GTA 5?

GTA 5 copies sold as of 2021

Take-Two Interactive released their 2nd Quarter fiscal figures on November 3, 2021, and their numbers revealed that GTA 5 had now sold a staggering 155 million copies and counting!

The last report, as of February 9, 2021, was that GTA 5 had eclipsed the 140 million sales mark, which shows that the game is still comfortably shifting units. Even though the numbers aren’t always accurate, Wikipedia currently has GTA 5 as the 2nd best-selling game of all time.

According to Take-Two, GTA 5 has generated over $1 billion in retail sales, which makes GTA 5 the best-selling game of the decade, and there is still the final re-release still to go.

Combined with GTA 5 sales, GTA Online is helping to rake in over $2 million every day, showing just how many players take advantage of microtransactions to further their GTA Online experience.

What are Grand Theft Auto’s lifetime sales?

When you factor in every other GTA game to GTA 5’s ridiculous success, Take-Two has announced that Grand Theft Auto’s lifetime sales have now surpassed the 355 million mark.

This makes it one of the most successful franchises in history, which is even more impressive when you factor in that these games are for a more age-restricted audience, compared to the likes of Mario, Pokemon, and Minecraft.


With the GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition sure to rack up sales, the re-release of GTA 5 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, and the inevitable next chapter in the series – GTA 6 – there is still plenty of time for GTA to add some massive stacks of cash to an already bloated pile.

Respawn love to celebrate the Apex Legends anniversary with an event. The game is coming up to its third birthday and for those interested in the date, here’s when Apex Legends’ anniversary is.

Apex Legends is known for having great content updates and communication with the community. Not only has Season 11 brought more server stability, but it also introduced a great new map and Legend.

With that being said, players are always hungry for new content. With how special the Season 8 Anniversary event was for 2021, it’s only right that fans are intrigued about the next one.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Anniversary event.

When is Apex Legends’ Anniversary?

Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale was released on February 4, 2019, making this date its anniversary every year since its launch. In celebration, players typically get an in-game event to mark the date.

The Apex Legends Anniversary events usually drop around this date, meaning the third-anniversary event can be expected in early February. As Respawn usually drop updates on Tuesdays, perhaps February 1 or 8 marks the date.

As Season 11 is expected to end around February 8, this anniversary event could either be dropping in Season 11 or 12. We’ll update this as more information is released so stay tuned for the official date.

What to expect for Apex Legends’ Anniversary event

In the previous Anniversary event, players were blessed with a whole Collection Event and Reward Tracker. As we already know that Season 11’s Collection Event won’t be Anniversary-themed, we can expect the 2022 Anniversary event to be something more simple.

Apex Legends dataminer GarretLeaks believes it could be similar to the Monster’s Within event, which was called a Thematic Event. This also included a Reward Tracker.

According to the dataminer’s recent video, the Anniversary will bring new skins for players – possibly recolors. Garret even suggests that an LTM could arrive along with it.

That’s all we currently know about the third Apex Legends Anniversary event. As more news is released, we’ll be updating this article so make sure you stay tuned.

Apex Legends Wraith and Ash combo bug makes them untouchable

Apex Legends players have discovered a Wraith and Ash combo bug that makes the duo virtually untouchable in combat.

Wraith and Ash in Apex Legends

Wraith and Ash are extremely powerful characters, and a few Apex Legends players have found a combo bug that lets them escape easily, effectively making them untouchable.

There are several powerful characters to choose from in Apex Legends, and all of them have some amazing abilities. Wraith and Ash are Legends that are capable of opening portals in battle.

If you want to be able to change your positioning easily then it’s useful to keep these two on your team. Now, a few players have discovered a strange combo bug that makes them untouchable.

Ash in Apex Legends

Reddit user ‘UnholyBeast’ highlighted this combo bug in the Apex Legends subreddit. It involves Ash’s ultimate ability Phase Breach that lets her travel across the map through a portal.

If you use Wraith’s tactical ability Into the Void while taking an Ash portal, the tactical’s cooldown will no longer matter, as you’ll be able to use it again right away. So you can change your position and avoid all damage.

This combo is quite clever but it clearly gives certain players and teams an unfair advantage since they can become untouchable while doing this. So, this bug can be considered game-breaking.

This didn’t escape the attention of the developers, as Respawn’s Live Technical Director ‘Exgeniar’ responded to the bug in the same post. After apologizing, they stated that “bugs are meant to be fixed.”

Based on these comments, it seems that the developers will be investigating this issue and will probably patch it up in a future update. Until then, this combo will make Wraith and Ash a strong duo.

Halo Infinite’s cheating problem may be bigger than Warzone’s

A popular anti-cheat account has expressed concern that Halo Infinite’s cheater situation will be “much worse” than Warzone’s.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer beta is facing a hacker problem, and a notable anti-cheat security account has shared concerns that this situation will be worse than Warzone’s.

Halo Infinite has a ton of fun content but the game is also facing a few problems. Aside from the glitch that de-ranks players after wins, there is also the issue of cheaters and hackers ruining matches.

Online multiplayer titles often have to deal with this problem, and one popular anti-cheat Twitter account is concerned that the Halo Infinite cheater situation might be worse than the one in Warzone.

Call of Duty: Warzone players frequently have to deal with cheaters, so the developers will be implementing the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat in the Pacific launch. There are concerns that Halo Infinite might need a similar system.

The Anti-Cheat Police Department Twitter account is known for understanding cheaters well, and they tweeted out that the new Halo title will end up like Warzone but “much worse.” They then proposed a possible solution to the devs.

“Release dedicated server clients to the community and you probably have the next CS:GO and the cheating situation helps solve itself, taking some of your burdens away,” they tweeted.

According to the Anti-Cheat Police Department, Halo Infinite’s detection system takes too long to detect cheaters, so making use of dedicated server clients will greatly reduce the problem.

They explained that the issue of cheaters will remain as long as Halo Infinite continues to use “in-game data detection to combat cheating.”

Halo Infinite devs respond to cheating concerns

While it’s unclear whether or not the developers will listen to this suggestion, 343 Industries are aware of the cheater problem, as Community Manager, John Junyszek responded to this problem on Twitter.

“Unfortunately, cheating is a natural part of supporting a F2P PC game and it’s one we anticipated,” he tweeted. It’ll never go away entirely, but we’re prepared and committed to releasing consistent improvements to our game’s systems and taking action on bad actors.”

He then let the fans know the game currently doesn’t have a “Report Player” feature, they can file reports against cheaters on the game’s support website, preferably with video evidence.

Hopefully, Halo Infinite’s anti-cheat measures will prevent the game’s situation from becoming as bad as Warzone’s. Until then, it remains to be seen if the developers consider giving players dedicated server clients.
