Sales Figures Tops 2 Million
GTA 5 PC has reportedly sold more than 2 million units according to the recent report in SteamSpy.
The report also shows that the United States has the highest number of owners (21.60%) and players (21.78%). Russia comes second with 11.67% owners and 11.75% players.
The numbers that have been given are only that of the game being sold through Valve's digital distribution platform. The report does not take into consideration those units sold via Rockstar Games Social Club, as they are yet to be tallied. So the final sales figure could be huge.
