According to a report by Statista, Minecraft holds the crown for selling the most copies of any one game, with a figure of 200 million copies by 2020. The large number of sales of Grand Theft Auto V helped it to compete and overtake established franchises such as Assassin’s Creed.
According to Statista, the entire Assassin’s Creed series, excluding Valhalla, had sold 155 million copies by November 2020, and even after adding Assassin’s Creed Valhalla sales to the franchise, GTA V‘s sales are very close to the total sales of Assassin’s Creed.
if you’re interested in knowing how many copies of the entire Grand Theft Auto series have been sold, you can get those figures from Take Two. The video game publisher estimates that the Grand Theft Auto series as a whole has sold over 370 million copies.
Rockstar Games previously confirmed that a new Grand Theft Auto game is in the works, as the US-based video game developer announced via its Twitter account. Rockstar Games also stated that more information about the upcoming game will be released soon via their official website.
Given how popular GTA V is, the next GTA game is a high-stakes game for the publisher, literally and figuratively, with huge expectations from fans.
