Grand Theft Auto 5 is perhaps the most controversial game in history. Its depiction of torture, misogynistic views of women, gang violence, and much other similar aspects have been the topic of criticism. Well, now GTA 5 has become the most profitable entertainment product of all time, with over 90 Million Units Sold.
For the third quarter of 2016’s financial year, GTA 5 sold 60 million copies, and then in 2017, those numbers exceeded heavily reaching up to 85 million copies sold worldwide across PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, making it the third most sold game in history.
Although it is no shocker that this game has now become the single most profitable commercial entertainment product of all time.
Since its release in 2013, Grand Theft Auto 5 has over 90 Million Units Sold, accumulating to about $6 billion. Which is a hefty sum of money.
It also makes the game, the highest grossing media title to date. One of the most interesting facts about GTA 5 is that it has apparently beaten every film ever made, in terms of sales.
Yes, that is correct, all those movies that nailed down the box offices, such as Star Wars and Gone With the Wind don’t even come close to Grand Theft Auto 5’s sales.
Adding to that, even if you adjust the inflation rate and take into account the DVD and streaming sales, the movie sales remain pretty far.
That being said, sometimes success is not always good for the community, especially in this case, although GTA 5’s fans love the game and the numbers don’t lie, the fans also seem to be looking for Grand Theft Auto 6.
Which apparently is a no-go, for now, because of the continuous success of GTA 5, Take-Two Interactive has no plans for the sixth sequel to the game.
With all that said, the developers of the game, will surely be rolling out more updates.
