Rockstar is enjoying the popularity of its games, with GTA V selling more copies with each passing day. Its popularity is growing every day as it is seeing more and more players playing the game online.
Take-Two Interactive has been particularly enjoying the market. They have now sold 70 million copies of GTA V and have seen success with their other launches as well, as its newly launched Mafia III has shipped 4.5 million copies in the first week of its launch. It saw a great demand owing to pre-orders which began earlier this year. Even NBA 2K17 and Civilization series have sold about 4.5 million copies since its launch in September and about 37 million copies respectively. Even Civilization VI that came out during a tight market has shipped about 1 million units.

The biggest contributor to their popularity and growing revenue has been GTA. Since the time the franchise moved online, it attracts more and more players to play the game. To make the game more interesting Rockstar regularly adds new DLC to the game.
