Yesterday the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 5 game finally launched and GTA 5 sales took more than $800 million on its first day. Setting a new Day One sales record for any game sold in the UK.
GTA 5 sales were expected to be high but $800 million on a first day of launch is very impressive and is sure to increase to new heights over the coming months.
GTA 5 sales racked up an impressive 1.57 million copies on its first day, with estimated sales of £65 million or $103.8 million with the UK. The previous UK record was held by the first-person shooter (FPS) video game Call of Duty: Black Ops, which sold 1.4 million copies in one day when it launched.
The recent GTA 5 sales make the game Take-Two’s fastest selling title of all time and the current figures do not count the games pre-orders in Japan and Brazil.
