GTA V ships more than 34 million copies

Grand Theft Auto V has shipped more than 34 million copies since launching last year.

According to Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive, the open-world blockbluster has reached the figure in less than 11 months. It went on to become the best-selling title of 2013, despite releasing towards the end of that particular year.

The game was also reported to be one of the most costly productions ever in the industry, with a marketing and development budget of £170 million ($265 million).

It has recently been rumoured to be receiving a zombie-themed single-player DLC.

GTA V will be available for PS4 and Xbox One later this year.
