The most expensive games in the world

That's not a secret that, spending so much time and efforts on a game creation, game developing companies also spend much money to produce a game and make it popular. In fact, high-quality video games cost very much, including development, voice acting, advertising campaign, and so on. Some games are more expensive than Hollywood blockbusters and we would like to tell you about them. 1. Destiny (about $500 million) This game creation cost an impressive $140 million. Then Activision, game developing company from USA, spent the same amount of money on advertising. But the publisher didn't stop on this. The total budget with all the additions and modifications is close to half a billion. 2. Grand Theft Auto V ($265 million) Another USA game developing company– Rockstar – spent on the fifth GTA 137 million dollars. Then another 128 million were spent on promotion and marketing campaign. The result, however, is impressive. Now players have the brightest and most ambitious GTA in history. 3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 ($250 million) The game development itself cost only $50 million for the Activision - the company that we already know. However, marketing took another 200 million. As a result, the budget has grown to $250 million. But it was worth it: the game holds several world records for both sales speed and total profit.
