Grand Theft Auto 5 has now shipped an eye-watering 95 million copies worldwide, publishing giant Take-Two announced in its earnings call overnight.

The company revealed just three months ago that the critically acclaimed crime behemoth had moved 90 million copies, so it's obviously still as popular as ever despite being nearly five-years-old.

GTA 5 was originally released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in September 2013, before arriving on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One the following year. It's now the most profitable entertainment property of all time (as in more than any other video game, movie, book, or record) according to MarketWatch.

Rockstar recently launched the GTA 5 Online Premium Edition, which bundles the full game alongside a bunch of content for its online multiplayer companion.

Speaking of which, GTA Online outperformed Take-Two's expectations for the financial quarter ended March 31, though the firm didn't divulge any numbers such as revenue or active players. 

Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick offered his two pence as to why the game continues to prove so popular, saying it demonstrates how Rockstar has managed to 'make the title easy to approach but difficult to master.'

'You can approach Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online in any number of ways. If you're a hardcore gamer, you can find it super compelling. If you're somewhat more casual, you can find the experience super compelling,' he said. 

While there's no word on when the inevitable Grand Theft Auto 6 will show its face, Rockstar fans still have Red Dead Redemption 2 to watch out for, which ships this October on PS4 and Xbox One.
