Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo 6 has shifted 2.37 million copies since its launch in December 2013, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) has announced.

The format holder revealed the figure in accordance with the ongoing trademark lawsuit filed by the Italian flooring company, VIRAG. 

In addition, Sony confirmed that the racing simulator series has now sold 72.6 million copies since its inception 17 years ago.

"In December 2010, the defendants released Gran Turismo 5, which included a simulated version of the Monza Track. In the course of designing Gran Turismo 5, the defendants willfully and intentionally chose to include the VIRAG® mark on a simulation of the bridge from the Monza Track.

"Sony America distributed the Gran Turismo 5 game globally, including throughout the United States and North America, and to date over 10.89 million copies have been sold. The defendants’ unauthorized use and display of the VIRAG® mark continued in Gran Turismo 6, which was released in December 2013. To date, over 2.37 million copies of Gran Turismo 6 have been sold."
