Grand Theft Auto 5 has shipped more than 65 million units worldwide, Take-Two chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick revealed in an overnight year-end earnings call. That's five million units shipped in the January to March quarter.
"Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online have exceeded our expectations in every quarter since they released," said Zelnick, "and continue meaningfully to expand their audience more than two and half years after their initial launch."
He added: "Grand Theft Auto V is sold in more than 65 million units worldwide. Moreover, engagement with Grand Theft Auto Online continues to be fantastic, with both fourth quarter and fiscal 2016 revenues up year-over-year.
"Rockstar Games has driven sustained engagement, with the Grand Theft Auto Online by delighting audiences with the regular release of free content updates. And there are many more on the way to keep these communities driving."
Fourth quarter net revenue was $342.5 million, some way ahead of the publisher's outlook of $260 million to $310 million, "due primarily to stronger than expected revenues from Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto," said chief financial officer Lainie Goldstein.
