The GTA 5 made its debut in 2013 on the Xbox, PlayStation and PC devices and the production is continuously in high demand.
Gamers are willing to reach for new versions of the three gangsters’ adventures and these fans have no problem buying dollars for GTA Online. Thus, the title has achieved global success.
While Rockstar is working on GTA 6, which is supposed to set the bar “for the entire entertainment industry,” gamers are buying more GTA 5 all the time – the title has now recorded sales of nearly 170 million copies.
Take-Two, in its latest financial report, has confirmed another interesting fact, however – the entire Grand Theft Auto brand has generated $7.68 billion since 2013 (the release of GTA 5)!
While this is an impressive result, we could be certain that the true result is even higher, as Take-Two reports two types of earnings quarterly, with the company passing on a portion of the revenue to the next three months – with the accountant adding the previously generated but deferred revenue to the report in situations of lower actual interest.
In the last quarter, GTA made $202 million, but that figure doesn’t represent all of GTA Online’s numbers, and we can be certain that Rockstar’s games achieved even more success.
It is certainly worth mentioning that in the previous fiscal year GTA generated $1.082 billion – with productions and GTA Online still showing capital results, so Rockstar really doesn’t need to rush to prepare GTA 6.
