Who made GTA 5

Six billion dollars in sales: GTA 5 is more successful than Star Wars

With over 90 million copies sold on all platforms and sales of $ 6 billion since its launch in 2013 Grand Theft Auto 5 maybe most successful and popular brand of the world.

That's according to a MarketWatch financial report, which confirms that Rockstar and Take-Two are making more money than Hollywood heavyweights on a single video game how Starwars orAvatarhas made.

Incidentally, without this brand, Take-Two would lose a proud third of its value: it did in the 2017 fiscal year GTA-Products 38.2 percent of the total company turnover.
