Rockstar's latest smashes records set by The Avengers and Call of Duty: Black Ops II

GTA V tops $1 billion in three days

Grand Theft Auto V has broken past $1 billion from sales in its first three days.

Rockstar’s open-world title had made $800 million on day one.

GTA V has reached the milestone faster than any other entertainment launch in history, beating the likes of Box Office smash hit The Avengers, which took 19 days to make $1 billion.

The previous record holder in games, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, took 15 days to reach the milestone.

“Grand Theft Auto is a cultural phenomenon and Rockstar Games continues to redefine what can be achieved in interactive entertainment," said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.

“We are incredibly proud of the extraordinary critical and commercial response to Grand Theft Auto V.”
