GTA 5 has become the highest grossing entertainment title ever. It has made more money then any Book, Movie or Game.
According to A report by MarketWatch, the game has sold 90 million units across all platforms since its release in 2013. Made from a budget of just $265 Million the game has made around $6 Billion.
Cowen analyst Doug Creutz said, movies like “Star Wars” or “Gone With The Wind,” both collected more than $3 billion, adjusted for inflation. Even taking into account DVD and streaming sales would not put the biggest movie blockbusters in GTA V’s neighborhood, said estimating those sales might add up to $1 billion to the films’ totals.
While the Mario series has sold mote titles then GTA 5, no single Mario title has come close to collecting $6 billion on its own.
Across the Grand Theft Auto series, GTA 4 has sold 25 million copies to date, GTA: San Andreas 27.5 million, GTA: Vice City 20 million and GTA III has sold 17.5 million since 2001.
