Grand Theft Auto V Rakes in $800 Million in its First 24 Hours

Jack Gardner



Today, Take-Two Interactive announced that Grand Theft Auto V has generated more day one sales than any other title in the history of Take-Two or Grand Theft Auto.


Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two, issued a statement on Rockstar's accomplishment saying, "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 [...] We are incredibly proud of Rockstar Games' creative achievement and could not be more pleased with the success of this launch."


If nothing else, the future of Take-Two Interactive is looking incredibly bright and Rockstar will probably be free to pursue whatever creative project their hearts desire. Perhaps we can finally get a massive open-world game based on feudal Japan? A guy can dream, right?


What would you like to see coming out of Rockstar next?
