Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5 is undoubtedly the best in the franchise, and the numbers prove it.
In fact, the open-world crime game now stands as the most profitable media property of all time, beating out any film, book, or game EVAR!
According to a new report by MarketWatch, GTA 5 has now sold over 90 million copies and generated over $6 billion in revenue since its initial release. GTA 5 was first released in 2013 for PS3 and Xbox 360, but it has since launched for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The game has made more than any part of the Star Wars series or even Gone With The Wind, which both brought home around $3 billion in theaters when adjusted for inflation.
As with most analyzed data and information, this is based on figures that we don’t have access to, so take this crazy statement with a grain of salt. But there’s not doubting GTA 5’s incredible success. With everything out there, humans still can’t resist hi-jacking a car and punching people in the head in this fantasy land.
