Take Two Interactive Inc., the creative company behind the extremely popular video game Grand Theft Auto, has recently announced that the fifth installment of the game has managed to reach $1 billion in sales just three days after its launch. It’s a sort of record no other video game, movie or any entertainment product has managed to achieve ever before.
The game, which allows gamers to cruise in a imaginary world based on actual locations such as L.A., raised a debate regarding the level of violence and adult content featured in the GTA current installment.
Although the game was first introduced 16 years ago, it still manages to capture gamers’ interest. The fifth installment of GTA has been long-awaited for since the fourth one was released back in 2008.
A version of the game for the next-generation Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles is about to go on sale in November.
