Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 has broken all records and become the fastest entertainment property to reach $1 Billion which it accomplished in 3 days. The previous record was held by Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 which reached $1 billion in 15 days.
After hitting $800 million in the first day, it was only a matter of time for it to reach the new milestone and that took just two additional days of sales.
Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of GTA Publisher, Take-Two
Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon and Rockstar Games continues to redefine what can be achieved in interactive entertainment, we are incredibly proud of the extraordinary critical and commercial response to Grand Theft Auto V.
