GTA 5 has shipped 29 million units since launch

Grand Theft Auto V  - 876870

Take-Two revealed today that Grand Theft Auto 5, the megablockbuster from Rockstar Games, has shipped nearly 29 million units since its launch in mid-September.

"During the fiscal second quarter, we delivered record Non-GAAP results driven by the unprecedented success of Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V,” said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two, said during the company's Q2 2014 earnings report. “The title received stellar reviews, shattered entertainment industry records, and has already sold-in nearly 29 million units to date."

It's worth noting that this figure refers to units sold-in to retailers, and not necessarily the number of games sold-through to consumers. Take-Two did point out that this figure has already succeeded in "exceeding the lifetime sell-in of Grand Theft Auto IV on console in less than six weeks after launch."

"We believe Grand Theft Auto 5 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," Take-Two reminded us. "The extraordinary success of Grand Theft Auto 5 illustrates the positive momentum in our business and consumers’ enduring appetite for the highest-quality interactive entertainment."

Unfortunately, there was still no mention of next-gen or PC versions of GTA 5. The latter, of course, has been heavily rumored thanks to leaks by various retailers.
