GTA V Rakes In $800 Million In First 24 Hours

Posted on Wednesday, September 18 @ 12:25:15 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


To no one's surprise, Grand Theft Auto V sold a whole lot of copies on launch day--which was yesterday in case you've already forgotten--raking in a whopping $800 million in its first 24 hours.

Take-Two announced the news earlier today, noting that this marks "the highest first day retail sales of any title in the history of the company and the Grand Theft Auto series." That's quite an accomplishment if I do say so myself.

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick went on to add:

All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto V. 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.

What do you think of GTA V thus far? Is it worthy of all the commercial and critical success it has received over the past day? Let us know in the comments below. If you've finished the story, check out our tips for getting 100% Gold on every mission.
