Grand Theft Auto V Ships An Astounding 34 Million Copies

by Damian Seeto


Take Two has announced Grand Theft Auto V shipped an amazing 34 million copies since its release last September.

Grand Theft Auto V broke entertainment records last year and was 2013’s best selling game. What’s even more impressive is that the game only came out for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Grand Theft Auto V is sure to sell even more copies when it releases for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One later this year.

In terms of other Take Two games, 2K’s NBA 2K14 became the best selling game in franchise history. That game shipped 7 million copies. Borderlands 2 is 2K’s best selling game of all time shipping a respectable 10 million copies. As for BioShock Infinite, that game also shipped over 7 million copies since it came out last year.

What is amazing is that NBA 2K14, Borderlands 2 and BioShock Infinite combined shipped over 24 million copies. This is still 10 million copies less than Grand Theft Auto V shipped on its own. This just goes to show you how popular the Grand Theft Auto series has become. It really is a juggernaut in the video gaming industry.

With the success Grand Theft Auto V, I’m sure Rockstar Games prepping work for Grand Theft Auto VI already.
