Nearly 29 Million Copies of GTA 5 Shipped


Since it’s release nearly 29 million copies of Grand Theft Auto V have been shipped, Take-Two Interactive said today during it’s second quarter earnings report. This also means that sales of GTA 5 have exceeded the lifetime console sales of its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto IV, and all in less than six weeks! I guess this means Michael, Trevor and Franklin are a lot more popular than Niko!

[GTA V] received extraordinary reviews, including over 160 perfect scores worldwide, and already has sold-in nearly 29 million units, exceeding the lifetime sell-in of Grand Theft Auto IV on console in less than six weeks after launch. We believe Grand Theft Auto V is the fastest-selling entertainment release in history, grossing over $800 million in retail sales during the first 24 hours after launch and over $1 billion in only three days.

29 million people is a heck of a lot of gamers to be reaching… Well done Rockstar!

Founder of GTA BOOM, Trevor has been a long-time fan of the GTA series but probably isn’t quite as hardcore a gamer as you’d think. When he isn’t tweaking the content on GTA BOOM, you’ll find him working on the server or making other improvements to hopefully make the site better. Other than that, Trevor enjoys getting outside in the sunshine!
