‘GTA V’ Stacks $6 Billion in Sales—More Than Any Movie Ever Released

If you grew up with a PlayStation 2, you’ll remember the sheer madness surrounding the release of Grand Theft Auto III. In an era of parental outrage and boycotts regarding violence and offensive content in entertainment, GTA 3 bore the brunt for the gaming industry. But the franchise has navigated its controversial identity sharply, focusing on developing great games instead of drowning under pressure. The replay value and overall quality of work put into GTA titles is always impressive, and the latest entry, 2013’s Grand Theft Auto V, just reached an undisputed benchmark in those terms—generating nearly $6 billion, and thereby becoming the most profitable entertainment title in history, shockingly surpassing even record-breaking movies like Star Wars and Gone With The Wind.
