Grand Theft Auto V Nearing 29 Million Units Sold, Considered ‘Unprecedented Success’

Posted on October 29, 2013 AT 01:56pm

Grand Theft Auto V has nearly reached 29 million units sold, exceeding the lifetime sales of its predecessor, Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar Games announced today.

In a press release reporting a strong fiscal second quarter 2014 for Take-Two Interactive, Strauss Zelnick, chairman and CEO of the distributor and owner of Rockstar Games, regarded GTAV’s sales as an “unprecedented success.”

“The title received stellar reviews, shattered entertainment industry records, and has already sold-in nearly 29  million units to date,” Zelnick said in the press release. “The extraordinary success of Grand Theft Auto V illustrates the positive momentum in our business and consumers’ enduring appetite for the highest-quality interactive entertainment.”

Grand Theft Auto V reached $800 million in sales within the first 24 hours of its September 17 launch, and went on to break $1 billion in sales within the first three days of its release. As a result, Take-Two closed out its fiscal second quarter 2014 with a $1.27 billion non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) revenue.
