Grand Theft Auto V Passes 90 Million Copies Shipped Worldwide

Nothing stops this train.

During a financial earnings call, Take-Two Interactive confirmed that Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto 5 has shipped more than 90 million copies worldwide. According to VentureBeat, that number include copies sold digitally to consumers and shipped to retail. The first release of Grand Theft Auto 5 came in 2013, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Much of Take-Two's revenue is still dependent on Grand Theft Auto 5 sales and Grand Theft Auto Online microtransactions.

"Our stellar results were highlighted by record recurrent consumer spending on both Grand Theft Auto Online and NBA 2K18, robust ongoing sales of Grand Theft Auto V, and the successful launch of WWE 2K18," said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick in prepared statements.

Take-Two is hoping Red Dead Redemption, now launching on October 26, 2018, will help the company wean itself off such a strong dependence to a single game. The publisher is also hoping that its new premium indie label, Private Division, will help the company fill out its roster. Zelnick also promised a new title from one of the company's biggest franchises.

"Private Division already has deals to publish several upcoming titles based on new IP from renowned talent, and represents an exciting new growth opportunity that complements Take-Two's core business," said Zelnick. "We continue to expect to deliver both record Net Bookings and record net cash provided by operating activities in fiscal 2019, in excess of $2.5 billion and $700 million, respectively, led by the launches of Red Dead Redemption 2 and a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K's biggest franchises. We have a robust development pipeline and are better positioned than ever for long-term growth and margin expansion."
