SaysWho? Posted April 4, 2019 Share Posted April 4, 2019 And at this point, it's probably a few million more than that. Quote Instead, in a twist befitting a game centered on heists, "Grand Theft Auto 5" has sold over 100 million units. "Grand Theft Auto 5" has made somewhere in the neighborhood of $6 billion, according to one report. Quote He's right to be shocked: It's more or less unprecedented, even for mega-hit franchises like "GTA." Zelnick pointed out that the entire "GTA" franchise has sold "something like 285 million units" — "Grand Theft Auto 5" makes up over 100 million of that alone. It's bumping up against the likes of "Minecraft" and "Tetris" for title of all-time best-selling video game. That's due to its extraordinarily long legs — the game keeps selling over time. Quote "There's only been one month since its original launch that 'GTA 5' hasn't appeared among the monthly top 20 sellers list (October 2014)," NPD Group's Mat Piscatella told Business Insider in an email. "There's nothing else like it. Completely off every conceivable scale." In case you're wondering what released in October 2014, there's no Top 20 which I can find, but the Top 10 was: NBA 2K15 (PS4, Xbox One, 360, PS3, PC) Super Smash Bros. for 3DS (3DS) The Evil Within (PS4, Xbox One, PS3, 360, PC) Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (360, PS3, PC) Destiny (360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3) Skylanders: Trap Team (360, Wii, Wii U, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, 3DS, mobile) FIFA 15 (PS4, 360, PS3, Xbox One, Wii, PS Vita, 3DS) Madden NFL 15 (360, PS4, PS3, Xbox One) Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (PS4, XBox One, PC) Minecraft (360, PS3, PS4) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
