GTA 5 has sold more than the entire Assassin’s Creed franchise combined
Is Grand Theft Auto V still available for purchase? No, seriously. It’s becoming ridiculous, and I want names.
When I turn 50, the retirement age has been raised to 110. I will still be writing about GThas selling several million more units in the span of a few months.
Rockstar’scritically-acclaimed open-world crime sim is now out for over a decade and shows no signs of slowing. According to Take-Two Interactive (Rockstar parent company), GTAV has now sold a staggering 160 million copies worldwide.
It was 155 million in November, which means that an eight-year-old video game has sold 5 million more units in just a few months. How? Why? I don’t know why.
GTAV is easily the most popular video game ever. It is well ahead of Tetris (100m) but not behind Minecraft (238m). GTAV accounts for almost half the Grand Theft Auto franchise’s total sales (370 million).
According to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, ‘s most recent sales numbers show that it has now overtaken two major franchises: Assassin’s Creed (155million) and Resident Evil (123m). GTAV has sold more than all of Assassin’s Creed. Let this sink in.
You can be sure that this ridiculous number will only grow with the “expanded” GTAVbound for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series consoles.
