Grand Theft Auto 5 publisher Take-Two Interactive has now shipped nearly 52 million units of Rockstar North's open-world mayhem box, the publisher announced today.

That figure is the total for shipments to retailers of copies across all five platforms on which Grand Theft Auto 5 is available: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and, since April 14, Windows PC. Take-Two announced the numbers in an statement today with its fourth-quarter and full-year earnings for its 2015 fiscal year, which ended March 31.

Take-Two announced in early February, along with its earnings statement for fiscal Q3 2015, that it had shipped more than 45 million copies of Grand Theft Auto 5. That means that the company shipped more than 6 million units across PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One over the past three and a half months.

Grand Theft Auto 5 debuted in September 2013 on PS3 and Xbox 360. The PS4 and Xbox One versions launched in November 2014.
