GTA V makes $800 million in first day
Grand Theft Auto 5, the blockbuster sequel to Rockstar Games’ ultra popular sandbox crime franchise, managed to rake in an enormous £496 million in its first 24 hours alone.
That’s roughly $800 million – nearly $1 billion.
The game cost £170 million to develop and bring to market, soaring past some high budget Hollywood blockbusters, such as Avatar. Fans across the United Kingdom queued up earlier this week for a midnight launch. So far every corner of the press is laying praise on the game.
