Grand Theft Auto V Makes $800 Million Within 24 Hours

The Grand Theft Auto franchise has grown into one of the most popular ones in the gaming industry. The latest release in the franchise is the GTA V, a game that hit the shelves only two days ago. Within 24 hours of being released, GTA V was able to fetch $800 million.


Fetching such a huge sum on the very first day of its release is extra-ordinary, even for a blockbuster and much-waited game. At this rate, there’s no doubt GTA V will hit the $1 billion run within a very short time. The last game that was quickest to reach that milestone is ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.’ And it took Black Ops 2 fifteen days to achieve that $1 billion.

In simple words, the sum garnered by GTA V on the very first day of its release is the highest ever made by a game in a single day. In fact, compared to even the best of blockbuster movies, the game trumps by amassing $800 million so quickly.

However, in the case of GTA V, the total budget clocked out to be a huge $260 million. Interestingly, the voice-over of gangsters in the game have been recorded by real-life gansters. But it’s for sure that after the initial frenzy, the sales of the game will slow down.
