Despite making $800 million in 24 hours thus doubling its spent budget, Grand Theft Auto V’s sales are “not impressive” says Fable creator Peter Molynuex.
Speaking at a mobile innovation conference with Mobile Entertainment last night, the developer said “It [GTAV] will achieve around $1 billion in revenue on consoles in just one month,” after noting the game’s popularity.
“Sounds impressive doesn’t it?” Molynuex asked rhetorically before adding “No. That’s not impressive.”
Molynuex continued by comparing the sales of GTAV, a big budget AAA title to the Mobile platform and mobile games who he says are “achieving between $3 million and $5 million a day.”
“That is impressive,” Molynuex concluded.
Whilst Molynuex has a point about the profitability of mobile games, the comparison to their and GTAV’s gargantuan sales this week is a bit of an odd one as the two operate on two different platforms in two different markets.
