GTA 5 tops 34 million units shipped

GTA 5 is a true powerhouse of the gaming scene, with publisher Take-Two confirming some 34 million copies of the game have now been shipped.

Having grossed more than $1 billion during its opening three days on sale last September, GTA 5 has now shipped 34 million units, with 1 million units being shifted during the last financial quarter.

Although there is a big difference between units shipped and actual units sold on to gamers, this figure still shows the massive scale of the latest Grand Theft Auto offerings – a game still currently available only on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Despite its past-gen roots, developer Rockstar recently confirmed that GTA 5 will be launched for PC, PS4 and Xbox One gamers this autumn – a move sure to bolster the title’s already impressive sales figures.

Although offering the same narrative, the next-gen and PC GTA 5 release will offer gamers “across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail.”

While Rockstar and Take-Two have yet to announce an official release date for the next-gen GTA 5 efforts, recent leaks have seen retailers peg the game for a November 7 arrival.
