‘Grand Theft Auto V’ Sets Record by Earning $1 Villion in Three Days

Posted by at 11:58 am on September 22, 2013



It took 24 hours for the latest Grand Theft Auto to earn $800 million, making it the fastest-selling video game in the world.

Now Take-Two Interactive announced that in three days the game has now surpassed $1 billion in sales, setting yet another record. “We believe this marks the fastest that any entertainment property, including video games and feature films, has reached this significant milestone,” the company said in a statement. It’s certainly quite a deal faster than the previous record holder, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, which took 15 days to top the $1 billion mark last year. Take-Two didn’t reveal just how many copies of the game, which launched this past Tuesday on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, were needed to hit that $1 billion mark.
