Plenty of cash was poured into the gaming industry during the previous year. Traditionally, some franchises stand out when it comes to generating income. In other words, they bring in heaps of greens to the respectful owners. For the past year, Rockstar, Activision and EA have reaffirmed their top video game licenses. Check out the top 10 best-selling titles in 2013:
- Grand Theft Auto V (Xbox 360, PS3) - 26.75 million units
- Call of Duty: Ghosts (Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U) - 12.71 million units
- FIFA 14 (Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U) - 8.11 million units
- Pokemon X&Y (Nintendo 3DS) - 7.64 million
- Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag (Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U) - 4.11 million units
- The Last of Us (PS3)- 3.69 million units
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Nintendo 3DS) - 3.35 million units
- Tomb Raider (Xbox 360, PS3) - 3.18 million units
- Monster Hunter IV (Nintendo 3DS)- 3.05 million units
- BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) - 2.89 million units
These are all full releases. However, one has to wonder how much cash was invested into projects that are still in development. And I'm not just talking about mainstream games here.
Last we reported on Chris Roberts' development studio, they've gathered $33 million for their sci-fi shooter Star Citizen. That's a little more than a month ago. The game's budget has now exceeded $35 million.
