The new milestone comes after the game sold over 90 million units worldwide, raking in over $6 billion in total estimated revenue. This makes the game the “most financially successful media title of all time,” moreso than any movie or music record.
To compare, $6 billion in revenue far exceeds the $4 billion seen by huge movies like Star Wars and James Cameron’s Avatar (the latter of which grossed $2.8 billion).
It remains unclear if the $6 billion is pure unit sales or ongoing spending by players in the game’s ongoing online multiplayer.
Grand Theft Auto V is currently available for Windows PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4.
