Rockstar Games claims that GTA 5 has sold over a whopping 150,000,000 units worldwide since it originally launched in 2013.
To be honest, it should come as little surprise that GTA 5 has hit yet another sales milestone. Despite nearly being a decade old, GTA 5 is regularly topping sale charts and has almost outsold the likes of Pokemon. Oh, and there’s the small matter of it being the most profitable entertainment product ever made.
Will GTA 5 ever stop making money?
However, Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive has once again been showing details of GTA 5s ever-growing riches.
As reported by Comicbook, Take-Two confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 5 has sold a mightily impressive 150 million units. As a franchise, Grand Theft Auto is now said to have sold over 350 million copies across multiple platforms and generations.
GTA 5 makes up for the most series sales!
So, when you look at the 350 million franchise sales, Grand Theft Auto 5 takes up 150 million of that sizable chunk. This means that GTA 5 roughly amounts to 42% of the combined sales.
It’s also worth mentioning that sales are not likely to slow down with GTA 5 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. However, Rockstar is releasing another port for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S on November 11th this year, meaning the series will make even more money.
In related news, a dataminer discovered that the latest next-gen port of GTA V might feature a save transfer function for the single player campaign.
