Take-Two has released its quarterly report for the second quarter, which ended September 30. The biggest news is that Grand Theft Auto V has already shipped 29 million copies. This figure was done in just six weeks and already passing the lifetime sales of Grand Theft Auto IV.

"The title received stellar reviews, shattered entertainment industry records, and has already sold-in nearly 29 million units to date," said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. "The extraordinary success of Grand Theft Auto V illustrates the positive momentum in our business and consumers’ enduring appetite for the highest-quality interactive entertainment."

Non-GAAP revenue grew by 340 percent for the quarter year-over-year to a record $1.27 billion for the publisher. Non-GAAP profits reached $325.57 million for the quarter.

Take-Two increased its projections for the full fiscal year. Revenue is expected to hit between $2.2 billion and $2.3 billion. The net income per share is expected to reach $3.50 to $3.75, also a record.

Don't forget that this is a multiplat game, so it's bound to have such sales.

@ Ledreppe "bound to have such sales" it's already in the top 10 best selling games of all time and will soon go to the top 3. Considering most in the top 10 were bundled, this will become the biggest game of all time. Don't act like it was expected or an easy feat because it's multiplat.

Well games are listed in the database by individual platform, so I fail to see how 29M divided between 2 platforms can make it into the top 10 when the 10th place game is around 28M on one format.

What?? You don't divide by skus when talking about the best selling games ever. 360 GTAV is the same game as GTAV PS3 .... So yes, it'll reach top 3 easily at this rate, non bundled best selling GAME ever.

GTAV was bundled with both the 360 and PS3, with the PS3 bundle being particularly effective.

I think you mean is that GTAV isn't a bundled system launch title.

Couldn't have been released at a better time with more than 150 million consoles in the market and before the next gen release. Great job!! Can't wait to see what the final number will be after a possible PC and next gen release.
