To think that GTA V alone has sold more copies than every single entry combined of major franchises like Final Fantasy, Assassin's Creed, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda, Resident Evil, and Need for Speed.

It'll probably be at 200 million copies sold by the time GTA VI releases! If not sooner!

When considering the amount of platforms GTA V has been released on compared to Minecraft, I'd say they're pretty similar in sales. GTA V has been released on 7 platforms. Minecraft has released on 19 platforms lol. If GTA V would be on 19 platforms, who knows what sales figures would look like.

Granted, most of the platforms Minecraft is on probably couldn't run GTA V lol

Keep in mind that both GTA 5 and Minecraft were 7th gen releases... But even on 7th gen hardware, Minecraft was severely castrated.

You would be surprised how far back you can scale GTA V's hardware requirements.

I would argue that if a platform can run Minecraft, it can run GTA V in some capacity.

I've been wanting to play gta5 for years now but I heard It's coming to the switch. It's why I haven't bought it for ps4 or even ps5

So many sales that would be better used on other franchises =p
This game is making so much money that they are riding it for 3 gens, preposterous.

It doesn't really count when it's been released over 6 generations of consoles.

I think there's a good chance that GTA 6 is the last GTA title ever released in the traditional format. They will build off of it for a long, long time.

what you said does make sense but damn GTAV still selling and cant see those numbers happening again.

You may be right. A lot of it will come down to how they monetize the game moving forward.
