Grand Theft Auto series has shipped over 220 million units

The Grand Theft Auto series has sold-in over 220 million units, according to a form 8-K Take-Two filed with the SEC this week.


In the same Shareholder Outreach document which noted the Red Dead Redemption figures, the firm noted the figures, adding at 54 million was attributed to GTA 5.

Mind you, sold-in is the same as sell-in, which refers to units "shipped" to retail. If the figure pertained to units sold to customers, it would be listed as "sell-through" or "sold-through." Lovely investor jargon.

In May, Take-Two announced GTA 5 had shipped over 52 million units, so the shipped numbers jumped 2 million over the last three months.

Within three days of release in 2013, GTA 5 had surpassed $1 billion in worldwide retail sales.
