It was widely agreed on that GTA V would be big. Five years in waiting for one of the better video game series, anything other than great would be a disappointment.
But three days letter and $1 billion in total sales I guess we have our answer.
Grand That Auto V in first day sales were estimated at $800 million, which was $300 million more than the previous record holder(2012, “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” , easily making it the most profitable first sales day not only for a video game but entertainment industry history.
GTA V uniqueness is not in that it the $1 billion mark in sales but the timeliness in comparison to other top selling video games and entertainment property.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II 15 days to reach $1 billion total sales
“Deathly Hallows, Part II” all took 17 days to get $1 billion total sales
