‘Grand Theft Auto V’ has made more money than any movie or other single media title in history and continues to sell. Stay tuned to Nexter.org.

There’s only one true star?

Industry analyst Doug Creutz says Grand Theft Auto 5 has made money than any other form of media in history, with over 90 million units sold and $6 billion in revenue.

Creutz, managing director and senior research analyst covering the media and entertainment sector at Cowen, told MarketWatch that the game is even more successful than blockbuster movies like Star Wars, and Gone With The Wind, which both brought in around $3 billion in theaters when adjusted for inflation.

Creutz estimates that even with home entertainment sales, which he puts in the ballpark of $1 billion, the films don’t come close to Rockstar’s 2013 title.

“I think it’s a wild outlier,” said Creutz, adding, “That’s not to say Rockstar won’t have other big hits—it may—but another GTA 5 isn’t likely. Michael Jackson had a lot of hit albums but he only had one Thriller.”

At the end of 2017, GTA 5 had sold 85 million copies and continues to appear on NPD’s monthly list of best-selling games in the US.
