According to publisher Take-Two Interactive during a financial earnings call, Grand Theft Auto V sales have reached the 95 million units mark, meaning at this point they could probably buy a few small countries.

It is a tremendous result for Rockstar's game, which was already one of the highest-selling games in USA history.

GTA Online mode is also performing well many years after release. Keep in mind that the fiscal year 2020 spans from April 2019 to March 2020.

This edition includes the Criminal Enterprise Starter Pack, a separate content package that costs €44.99 and is targeted at new GTA Online players by including "the most exciting and popular content", according to Rockstar's announcement, and a $1,000,000 bonus to spend on the game.

GTA Online pulls in money from the microtransactions it offers. These are counted in Take-Two's "recurrent consumer spending category", which saw its performance grow year-over-year.

Take-Two stated that a "highly-anticipated title from one of 2K's biggest franchises, which had been planned for release during the current fiscal year, is now planned for launch during fiscal 2020 to allow for additional development time".

Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick offered his two pence as to why the game continues to prove so popular, saying it demonstrates how Rockstar has managed to 'make the title easy to approach but hard to master'. "And if you are a hardcore gamer, you can find it super compelling and if you are somewhat more casual you can find the experience super compelling and there is so much there now".
