GTA V is the Most Profitable Game of All Time
Everyone knows that Grand Theft Auto V is a successful game. However, according to recent news, GTA V has become the most profitable entertainment product of all time. It made more money than any movie, music, book or video game on the market so far.
Best of the GTA Series and Other Entertainments
According to the financial information site, MarketWatch; the game sold more than 90 million times since it has been on the market (2013). Rockstar Games has earned a profit of 6 billion dollars. Even Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all time, was able to make a profit of 2.8 billion dollars. Even though all of the Blu-ray and DVD’s sold by Avatar are accountable, it is still pretty far from GTA V.
GTA V was announced as the best-selling video game of all time in the US in November 2017. With 90 million sales GTA V is the 3rd best selling game of all time. Minecraft is in the 2nd place with 144 million sales and Tetris is in the 1st place with 170 million sales. It looks like Tetris will keep its place for a long time.
GTA V was first shipped to the market for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013. In 2014 it’s PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions were on the market. And lastly, the PC version in April 2015. The game is said to have spent a total of 265 million dollars in all phases of production, development, and marketing.
Rockstar Games is continuing to bring various updates (DLCs) to GTA V Online. The company is planning to continue generating revenue from GTA V Online. However, because GTA V is still making money for the company, Rockstar Games isn’t planning to publish GTA VI any time soon. According to the rumors, the game will be ready in 2020 and it’ll take a couple of more years to be available for all devices.
