GTA V Banks $1 Billion in 3 Days
Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games have announced that Grand Theft Auto V has reached a milestone. The fifth installment into the GTA series has broken many sales records, netting over $1-billion in sales globally. This wouldn’t be that important if it hadn’t done so in just a few days.
To put things into perspective, GTA V hit $800-million in sales on day-one alone. In retrospect, Call of Duty: Black Ops II took 15 days to reach the same quota.
“Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon and Rockstar Games continues to redefine what can be achieved in interactive entertainment,” Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said in a statement. “We are incredibly proud of the extraordinary critical and commercial response to Grand Theft Auto V.”
Grand Theft Auto V launched on Tuesday, September 17th to widespread critical and commercial appeal.
