Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V has now shipped a whopping 33 million copies worldwide, parent company Take-Two Interactive has announced.

The figure represents a 500,000 copy increase over this time three months ago, helping Take-Two to revenues of $233.2 million during the fourth quarter of FY2013 and $1.222 billion for the year.

Although 33 million is the amount of GTA V units Take-Two has shipped and not sold, it’s still a huge number. To put it into perspective, the fifth best-selling game of all-time is Mario Kart Wii with 35.53 million copies.

The other games in the top five, in ascending order, are Super Mario Bros, Minecraft, Wii Sports and Tetris.

Meanwhile, Take-Two’s digital revenue increased 65 per cent year-over-year to a $435.1 million, a company record. The bump was led by DLC for Borderlands 2, NBA 2K, Civilization V, BioShock Infinite and the GTA series.

During the same earnings call last night, take-Two revealed that Rockstar Games is working on a next-gen title for release before April 2015, prompting speculation regarding an Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release of Grand Theft Auto V. More on that through here.
