In fact, the 2001’s GTA III popularized the setting of a three-dimensional game world where players are able to explore and do anything they’d like.
Then there was GTA V which in fact broke the industry sales records and became the first entertainment product to hit a whopping US$1 billion in sales within its first three days on the market.
Even as old as it is, GTA V is still one of the top-selling games each year and has since racked up over 155 million copies of sale with over US$ 6 billion in global revenue.
With GTA 6 in development, one can only imagine how good the next installment will do even though the success of the previous installment could have a big impact on the next generation.
While Rockstar and its parent company, Take-Two Interactive, have declined to share release date plans, some industry analysts believe the title will land as early as next year.
