Y’all really enjoy jacking cars.
Grand Theft Auto V publisher Take-Two Interactive revealed today that the most recent entry open-world crime series has reached 54 million copies in sales, making it one of the best-selling games of all time. It is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. If each game sold for the suggested retail price of $60, that’s about $3.24 billion in revenue.
Even though it originally came out in 2013, Take-Two still attributes it and its multiplayer component, Grand Theft Auto Online, as major contributors to its net revenue in fiscal first quarter 2016. Grand Theft Auto Online makes money outside of copies sold with downloadable content.
Take-Two and developer Rockstar are likely already planning a follow-up to this money-making machine, although they haven’t yet announced a sequel.
