We're talkin' big money.
After raking in $800 million in just 24 hours, it was probably inevitable that Grand Theft Auto V would soon break the $1 billion mark. And publisher Take-Two Interactive has indeed announced that the widely revered title has passed $1 billion in overall worldwide sales. In only a few days.
If you're wondering how this compares to the biggest name in gaming today, Call of Duty: Black Ops II took 15 days to break the $1 billion mark. Said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick:
"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."
There's also a chance that GTAV could come to next-gen consoles in 2014, which would increase the sales potential yet again. Thus far, the game has raked in over 20 perfect scores from various sources and gamers everywhere are knee-deep in what the vast city of Los Santos has to offer. For more, check out our epic review .
