    Grand Theft Auto V Makes $800 Million in One day!

    Take-Two has announced that Grand Theft Auto V generated approximately $800 million in sales worldwide during its first 24 hours on sale. According to Take-Two, this marks “the highest first day retail sales of any title in the history of the company and the Grand Theft Auto series.”

    Take-Two notes that the figure includes sales across both platforms in all territories, but added that GTA 5 has not yet launched in Japan or Brazil.

    "All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto V,” said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick. “Once again, the team at Rockstar Games have outdone themselves, setting the entertainment industry's new standard for creativity, innovation and excellence. Beginning at midnight on Monday, consumers around the world gathered in anticipation to be among the first to experience the evolution of this remarkable series. In North America alone, more than 8,300 stores opened their doors at midnight to welcome fans whose loyalty and enthusiasm were rewarded with what The New York Times called 'the most immersive spectacle in interactive entertainment'. We are incredibly proud of Rockstar Games' creative achievement and could not be more pleased with the success of this launch."

    Is anyone here surprised at this?

    I was pretty sure GTAV would already be this successful, if not more successful. Nicely done Rockstar Games for another great game!

    I'm not really surprised. The hype surrounding this game was through the roof (marketing, word of mouth). No big games were out as popular as this title which was smart by Rockstar. I'm guessing the COD kids wanted to jump the bandwagon and keep themselves busy before the next one releases in November.

    Congrats to Rockstar on this milestone. Loving every minute of it.

    Earned every penny of it in my opinion, truly outdone themselves with the main game, Online could push the sales even higher too with word of mouth if it takes off well ( which it should ).

    this is actually the best selling piece of entertainment of all time.


    the highest boxoffice opening was Avengers. it made like 200 million in 3 days. GTA Quadrupled that in one day.

    In perspective,it's around $300 million more than COD BLOPS II ( the previous record holder for games ) sold in the same timeframe.

    Mother of incomes! And even though the game cost them about $200+ million to make, they're still taking in one heck of a sum of money. I wonder if any other game franchsie can run with the same kind of luck.

    I don't think lucks got much to do with it mate, they always deliver a quality product, if other companies want the same success all they got to do is put the work in .
