During the Take 2 investor call, company CEO Strauss Zelnick revealed that Grand Theft Auto V shipped a whopping 29M units since its release a few weeks ago. Global sales passed 10M units.

Strauss noted, “During the fiscal second quarter, we delivered record Non-GAAP results driven by the unprecedented success of Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V.The title received stellar reviews, shattered entertainment industry records, and has already sold-in nearly 29 million units to date. 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.”

Those sales, along with BioShock Infinite and the Brave New World expansion for Civilization V, drove $1.27 billion in revenue for the publisher, a $288 million improvment year-to-year. Take 2 is now expecting to earn over $2.2B for the fiscal year.

Grand Theft Auto V was released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on the 17th September. A PC version is all but officially announced.

For a second there I thought they've already sold that many, it's still a big number though :).
