That didn't take long.
According to sales-tracking firm Chart-Track, the critically acclaimed Grand Theft Auto V has already surpassed the lifetime sales of its predecessor in the UK.
It was also noted that GTAV sold 1.57 million units in the region in just 24 hours, breaking the previous record of 1.41 million set by Call of Duty: Black Ops . In only a matter of weeks, GTAV has become the UK's 12th best-selling game in history, and has earned the 5th largest revenue haul. In fact, it has already come close to raking in as much money as Black Ops made in total lifetime sales. Nevertheless, despite all this good financial news, GTAV still couldn't reclaim the top spot on the UK's sales charts…
Yeah, they love their soccer over there; FIFA 14 is #1. However, the achievements of GTAV are still pretty darn impressive.
