GTA V reaches $1 billion in sales in just three days

We all knew that GTA V, Rockstar’s latest addition to its hugely popular franchise, would be a big seller, and Take-Two, Rockstar’s parent company, has confirmed just how big it is. One billion dollars big, selling enough copies in three days to reach that mark.

In a press release, Take-Two seemed confident that GTA V reached the billion mark faster than any other product in history, stating “We believe this marks the fastest that any entertainment property, including video games and feature films, has reached this significant milestone.”

With the holiday season to look forward to, and the rumored possibility of an upgraded release for the PS4 and Xbox One and a probable PC port, GTA V can expect its sales to keep on surging forward. The incoming release of GTA Online in October can only help this.
