Grand Theft Auto V fastest selling game ever in UK

Grand Theft Auto V fastest selling game ever in UK

Call of Duty: Black Ops is no longer the fastest-selling game in the UK, as copies of Grand Theft Auto V have been selling at an astounding rate, reaching 1.57 million copies sold in just 24 hours.

Worldwide revenue for the game could very well hit the $1 billion mark this month, after GfK Chart Track reports show that GTA V generated $103 million on launch day alone.

The game’s huge success will boost the country’s game retail sector, which has recently been struggling to maintain a relevant presence in the game industry.

GTA V is officially the fastest-selling game in the history of the series, and could potentially become the fastest-selling game ever made. Publisher of Take-Two Interactive announced that the game has reeled in an astounding $800 million on its very first day. Previous record holder Black Ops 2, reached $500 million during the day of its launch.
