Grand Theft Auto V ships 54m copies

Take-Two has announced its quarterly financial results, revealing that Grand Theft Auto V has shipped more than 54m units life-to-date.

The firm’s results from the previous quarter indicate that GTA V sold over 2m units during the three month period ending on June 30th.

Total revenue for Rockstar and 2K’s parent company reached $366.4m – a 142 per cent increase compared to the $151.6m brought in during the same period in 2014. Digital revenue was up as well, representing 36 per cent of the pie.

The figures translate to $34.2m in profit for Take-Two, much improved from the $11.2m loss in the same quarter last year. The company projects net revenue of $1.3 to 1.4bn for its full fiscal year.

Gamasutra further reports that despite the solid period, investors were largely displeased with the results – causing the firm’s stock to fall in after-hours trading. That’s due to Take-Two turning in earnings of 31 cents per share for the quarter, where analysts had expected 36 cents per share.
