According to Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick, Grand Theft Auto 4 has passed 22 million units shipped since its release in April 2008. The GTA franchise as a whole has exceeded a ridiculous 114 million units shipped. That's one hell of a lot of games.
Zelnick also mentioned the shipment totals on some other Take-Two franchises including Midnight Club at 18.5 million, NBA2K at 17 million, Red Dead Redemption at 12.5 million, Civilization at 11 million, BioShock at 9 million, Carnival Games at 8 million, Max Payne at 7.5 million, the Mafia franchise at 5 million, Borderlands at 4.5 million, and The Darkness at just 1 million.
Does this huge number from the GTA franchise surprise you? Hopefully by seeing such success from the naughty franchise we'll see some more news on GTA 5 popping up soon.
