Take-Two Interactive has announced Grand Theft Auto V has beat the $1 billion dollars make in just three days instead of the estimated one month.
“We believe this marks the fastest that any entertainment property, including video games and feature films, has reached this significant milestone,” the publisher said when speaking of the game’s runaway success.
“Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon and Rockstar Games continues to redefine what can be achieved in interactive entertainment,” Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick added. “We are incredibly proud of the extraordinary critical and commercial response to Grand Theft Auto V.”
It’s evident how analyists who predicted the game to make the $1 billion mark in a month grossly underestimated the game’s appeal. Just a few days ago Rockstar had announced how the game had made $800 million in just 24 hours.
Also earlier this week, Fable creator Peter Molyneux downplayed the game’s success claiming GTA’s quickly earned $800 million was “not impressive.”
