Grand Theft Auto V has sold 95 million copies to date, which is some kind of crazy. Rockstar's car-jacking sandbox game is approaching its fifth birthday, and it shows no signs of applying the brakes.
The news was the highlight of Take Two's financial earnings call yesterday. The "95 million copies sold" milestone applies to Take Two's fiscal year ending March 31, 2018. In February, the publisher reported it shipped 90 million copies of Grand Theft Auto V as of its previous financial quarter.
"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 One," Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said during the call.
One reason Grand Theft Auto V continues to be extremely successful is because the game is necessary to play Grand Theft Auto Online, a robust online world Rockstar updates frequently with new missions, new cars, and new reasons to keep on smashing and grabbing. In fact, Rockstar and Take Two released a new Grand Theft Auto V SKU just last month: Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It includes the vanilla Grand Theft Auto V story-based experience (all upgrades and DLC included) in addition to a bunch of properties and cash meant to get Grand Theft Auto Online players started on the right foot (so they can quickly switch to the wrong foot by making trouble as soon as possible).
