To be clear, "shipped" in the context of the public shareholder outreach presentation represents copies of the game sold to retailers for distribution and doesn't necessarily represent the number of people who actually own the game. Still, the impressive number puts it in the upper-echelon of franchises and is only surpassed by Mario and Pokemon.
According to data on Wikipedia, Mario as a franchise currently sits at number one with 509 million sales. Pokemon is number two with 297 million.
Sales of Grand Theft Auto V are likely to continue going strong since there still updates in the works, like the Rockstar Editor feature coming to PS4 and Xbox One with the game's next patch. However, Take-Two offered a statement of "no comment" when last asked about the status of story-based DLC content for GTA V.
