Rockstar Games has shipped more than 65 million units of Grand Theft Auto V worldwide, according to an announcement by Take-Two Interactive today.

Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick said during the company’s analyst call that GTA V had set yet another record, with the 65 million units up from 60 million in early February. A year ago, the game had sold 52 million units. If you multiply the total by $60 per copy at the retail price, you get about $3.9 billion in revenues. That’s pretty amazing.

Zelnick noted that the game just keeps on performing, even though it was originally released in September 2013 on PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. The game debut on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November 2014, and then it hit the Windows PC in April 2015.

One of the things that keeps it going its Grand Theft Auto Online, which has been a cash cow and keeps fresh content coming for the fans.
