Grand Theft Auto 5 was one of the most expected games of this year and it seems that it hasn’t disappointed fans not even by a bit. Rockstar Games has made public that Grand Theft Auto 5 made $800 million in just one day.
“All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto V,” said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick in the press release. “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. Fiscal year 2014 is off to a great start.”
We all know that Grand Theft Auto will be a success but we never knew that it will be this much of a success. The numbers will probably double or triple throughout time, so we can only say: good job Rockstar!
