Grand Theft Auto V Ships An Astounding 85 Million Copies Grand Theft Auto V Ships An Astounding 85 Million Copies

Grand Theft Auto V has shipped 85 million copies, Take-Two announced today.

Take-Two increased its adjusted revenue forecast to $1.93 billion to $2.03 billion for the year ending March 31, from $1.65 billion to $1.75 billion. So, what game did GTA V steal the mantle of highest-selling ever from (with a wallop upside the head with a golf club before it stole the anthropomorphic game's car)?

Overall, Take-Two's revenue for the quarter came to $443.6 million, up from $420.2 million during the same period past year.

The incredible sales numbers are due in no small part to GTA Online, the feature that draws most players in every day to take part in missions, races, crimes, basically anything that the sprawling city environment has to offer. Net sales from from recurrent consumer spending grew 84% yoy and accounted for 42% of total net sales. Take-Two called out games like National Basketball Association 2K17, GTA Online, GTA V, WWE SuperCard, WWE 2K17, and XCOM 2 as top performers in this category.

National Basketball Association 2K18 also had a successful launch, selling more than 6 million copies since its launch, 20% more than National Basketball Association 2K17. The game has already shipped over 6 million units worldwide. He added that Take-Two is "very pleased" with the game's performance on Nintendo Switch. Net revenue for virtual currency, add-on content and microtransactions was $443.6 million, compared to $420.2 million yoy. Digitally delivered net revenue made up 68 percent of Take-Two's total revenue of $443.6 million. It seems hard for GTA V to overcome these titles because next year's attention will be diverted to Red Dead Redemption 2.

During Q2 2018, total net sales grew 20% to $577 million, up from $479.4 million yoy.

Overall, Take-Two posted a loss of $2.7 million for the quarter, down substantially from the profit of $36.4 million that the company made during the same period past year.

Take-Two Interactive teases new entry in one of 2K's biggest franchises, but which one?

Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V came out back in 2013, but there are no signs of the game slowing down.

Take-Two is now holding an earnings call to discuss these results and answer analyst questions.
