GTA V Sales Reach 95 Million Units, Publisher Take Two Interactive Confirms
GTA V sales have reached 95 million units, according to publisher Take-Two Interactive.
Sales numbers for Rockstar’s “most profitable entertainment product ever made of any sort”, were reported in the Take-Two Interactive’s most recent financial earnings call.
“Grand Theft Auto V is now sold in 95 million units worldwide, reflecting its status as the highest rating title of the current console generation and the must have game for purchasers of Play Station 4 and XBOX 1”, CEO Strauss Zelnick told investors. “The incredible ongoing success of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online underscores Rockstar Games unparalleled skill at producing iconic entertainment experiences that attract and engage new audiences for years after release.”
During the Q&A session, he added, “But Grand Theft Auto has sold in over 95 million units and according to others apart from us, it's the highest growth and most profitable entertainment product ever made of any sort.”
We already reported that GTA V recently became the highest grossing media title of all time, thereby beating franchises such as Star Wars, Avatar, and others. “Far above the success of blockbuster movies like “Star Wars” or “Gone With The Wind,” which both collected more than $3 billion, adjusted for inflation”, website MarketWatch wrote.
Please note that the sales number reported refers to the number of total units sold to retailers since its release (sold in).
Back in February of this year, Take-Two reported that GTA V sold 90 million units globally as of December 31, 2017, implying that another 5 million copies have been sold in 3 months’ time – quite an accomplishment for a title that has been on the market for 4 to 5 years.
Grand Theft Auto V, or GTA V, is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game has also been released for PS3 and Xbox 360.
