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!
