Millions of customers accompany Rockstar as the well-known developer studio takes another swan dive into the world of crime and insanity with Grand Theft Auto 5 (I'll be done with the review soon; I'm too busy swan-diving into insanity).
Now then, the biggest news on the block tonight is that the game boasts biggest sell-through launch income in publisher Take-Two's history. Incredibly successful launch sales have surpassed all of Grand Theft Auto 5's predecessors. Take-Two have sent along the word that Rockstar's free-roam, car-smashing, bullet-dodging, action adventure rolled in $800 million worldwide within the first 24h on sale.
"All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto V," Take-Two chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick said. "Once again, the team at Rockstar Games have outdone themselves, setting the entertainment industry's new standard for creativity, innovation and excellence."
Rockstar's earlier games are not too far back though. Vice City, San Andreas and GTA IV were all crowned with financial success. For instance, 13 million copies of GTA IV were shipped worldwide in 2009.
Regardless, GTA 5 seems to be on its way to top that, with such impressive early sales.
