Despite the lack of new games or even major newer updates for Grand Theft Auto Online, the Grand Theft Auto Franchise has managed to generate more than 355 million sales between its titles. That’s a 5 million increase since August 2021 and that’s almost entirely due to Grand Theft Auto V, which has now reached over 155 million sales alone. Actually, GTA V is the fastest “entertainment release” ever to reach $ 1 billion in retail sales.
