According to Take Two Interactive’s Strauss H. Zelnick, GTA V continues to outperform the publisher’s expectations.

As of December 31, 2016, we had over $1.4 billion in cash and short-term investments on our balance sheet. Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online continue to outperform our expectations as they have in every quarter since their release. Grand Theft Auto V remains the highest rated game of the current console generation and a must-have title for gamers on both console and PC with sell-in now surpassing 75 million units.

According to data from the NPD Group that combines physical sales and full game downloads, Grand Theft Auto V was the number six selling game across all platforms in 2016. In addition, Grand Theft Auto Online continues to deliver growth in both engagement and bookings with a record number of players in December, driven by the ongoing release of new content.

In 2016, GTA V sold more than it did in 2015 or 2014, quite an accomplishment. This proves GTA V has been a must-buy for those adopting the current-gen consoles.

Grand Theft Auto V is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The title has also been released on both PS3 and Xbox 360.
