Throughout Take-Two’s fiscal conference call for its financial year ended on March 31st, ” Chief Executive Officer Strauss Zelnick announced a new sales milestone for Grand Theft Auto V.
We discovered that the game has 95 million units shipped at March 31st, 2018, following the introduction of the Premium Online Edition.
As usual, Grand Theft Auto Online exceeded the publisher’s expectations throughout the previous fiscal quarter and remains its biggest contributor for recurring consumer spending (Basically microtransactions for those who aren’t acquainted with the company terminology).
The preceding shipment landmark, at over 90 million units, was announced only in February,while the other at 85 million units premiered in November. This means that the game has been selling roughly five million units every 3 weeks, which is bonkers.
It was initially published in September 2013 for both PS3 and Xbox 360, followed by a launching on PS4 and Xbox One in November 2014, and around PC in April 2015.
