Everyone knew Grand Theft Auto V was going to be big, but even a day after release, it’s shattering records. MCV is reporting that the fifth iteration into the incredibly popular franchise has sold 1.57 million units in the United Kingdom alone. That shatters the previous record that was held by Call of Duty: Black Ops, which sold 1.41 million back in late 2010.
We have yet to receive the numbers for North America or the rest of Europe, but I can only imagine it being significant higher. The five year wait was worth it as not only is Grand Theft Auto V a gold mine for Rockstar, but a critically acclaimed one at that. Here’s hoping a PC version is being worked on as mod support, like GTAIV, will no doubt be spectacular.
