More than 33.8 million people have played Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode, Grand Theft Auto Online. That's just one of the many incredible statistics Rockstar Games announced today as part of a "GTA Online Census: The Story So Far" report released today on the developer's website.

In August, it was announced that GTA V had shipped more than 34 million copies, though at the time we didn't know how many were actually sold to consumers. Now we know the figure is at least 33.8 million. GTA V was the best-selling game of 2013 in the United States.

Rockstar also today announced that GTA Online will finally add Heists in the first update to come to the game following the release of GTA V for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 next week. Heists will be available in GTA Online across all platforms: Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4.

"We'll have some details on that very soon," Rockstar said.

For now, you can check out the graphics below that speak to just how incredibly popular GTA Online has been. Of course, all this data applies only to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.
