Grand Theft Auto V has officially hit “preposterous” levels of financial success: Rockstar has sold-in close to 29 million copies of their latest open-world monstrosity, the corporate overlords at Take-Two announced today.
29 million. Twenty-nine million. I’ll let you stop and pick your jaw up off the floor now.
(Note: “sold-in” means they sold the games to stores, not necessarily to customers. Take-Two isn’t saying how many copies they sold to human beings. (We asked.))
Rockstar says that the game has exceeded “the lifetime sell-in of Grand Theft Auto IV on console in less than six weeks after launch.”
