Long-time fans of the Grand Theft Auto series have been surprised and thrilled by this turn of events, especially given the enduring popularity of the game.

As reported by Game Pressure, Grand Theft Auto V was the second biggest bestseller on the UK market during the week ending May 9, just one step behind wildly popular newbie Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
