Take-Two Interactive have confirmed that after three days, sales of the video game “Grand Theft Auto V” have now passed $1 billion U.S. dollars.
According to the company, this makes GTAV the “fastest-selling entertainment property ever made”.
In comparison, the closest entertainment properties to make a billion dollars so fast are “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” which took 15 days, and Marvel’s “The Avengers” movie which took 19 days.
Big event game sales are often notoriously front-loaded, even more so than major event movies. So, the game has already earned the easy majority of its lifetime sales.
GTA 5 is currently available only on the PS3 and Xbox 360. The multiplayer component, “GTA Online,” will launch on October 1st.
