During quarterly call with investors today, in accordance to Take-Two Interactive revealed Grand Theft Auto 5 has now sold 70 million copies since its release.
The company reported “strong results” for the second quarter of its fiscal year, with CEO Strauss Zelnick crediting part of the success to “on-going, robust demand for Grand Theft Auto V.”
Take-Two also reported NBA 2K17 has sold-in 4.5 million units since it released and had the strongest first-week in the franchise’s history. Mafia III sold-in 4.5 million units in its first week, a record for the company.
It’s important to note sold-in figures represent units shipped to retailers, and not units sold to consumers. Civilization VI, another Take-Two property, released earlier this month. In our Civ VI review, we called it the most fully-featured launch in the franchise’s history.
