People just can’t stop buying Grand Theft Auto 5

Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 has shipped a grand total of 75 million units since launching in September 2013.

Take Two recently announced during its Q3 earnings call that it shipped 5 million copies of the open-world masterpiece during the previous holiday period.

“Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online continue to outperform our expectations as they have in every quarter since their release,” said Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. “Grand Theft Auto V remains the highest rated game of the current console generation and a must-have title for gamers on both console and PC with sell-in now surpassing 75 million units.”

In addition, Grand Theft Auto Online continues to perform well above expectations thanks to its frequent content updates and active player base.
