During Take-Two’s Q4 and fiscal year earnings release, CEO Strauss Zelnick revealed that GTA 5 has now surpassed 80 million units mark and that it continues to rack up money for the company with another 5 million copies sold since company’s last earnings report in February.

“The title continues to attract and delight new audiences, especially as the installed base of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One expands further,” said Zelnick.

Rockstar’s GTA V was first released in September 2013 on PS3 and Xbox 360, and later on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2014. It currently stands at fourth position in the list of “highest selling games of all time”, along with Wii Sports at third position with 82,810,000 units sold, Minecraft at second with 122,000,000 units sold, and Tetris at first with 495,000,000 units sold (including every Tetris game ever released).

The physical sales accounts a total of 75%, whereas digital sales accounted as 25% in total revenue. Furthermore, Grand Theft Auto Online had another “record year” and was also the “single-largest contributor to recurrent consumer spending” over the last quarter.

Meanwhile, 2K’s crime-drama game, Mafia III, has sold more than 5 million units, while Civilization VI has sold nearly 2 million copies.

Additionally, 2K’s NBA 2K17 becomes Take-Two’s highest-selling sports title ever, with nearly 8 million sold to date. Further, its recurrent consumer spending also continues to grow, rising 71 percent over the last fiscal year.
