Grand Theft Auto V Heist

The Call of Duty franchise made a habit of breaking records, usually its own. Modern Warfare 2, for example set a record by making $310 million in its first 24 hours. That record was broken by Black Ops, which made $360 million. Modern Warfare 3 then made $400 million on its first day and went on to reach the $1 billion mark one day sooner than James Cameron’s Avatar. Then, finally, Black Ops II was able to hit $500 million day one.

All of these are huge numbers, summer blockbuster grand total numbers reached in ONE single day (with pre-orders included, of course). But all of those numbers have been blasted out of the water now.

It’s being reported that Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V has scored a jaw-dropping $800 million day one total.

To put it in perspective, that’s $300 million more than the previous Black Ops II record, $200 million more than the seemingly untouchable $600 million domestic record Titanic held for 12 years, and $150 million more than the almost $750 million domestic total Avatar hit to dethrone Titanic. In ONE day! The mind, it boggles.

As always it has to be said that this is a video game that costs $60 compared to however much the average movie ticket is these days. Then again, many more people are out seeing movies than are playing video games.

Either way, congrats to Rockstar on the huge numbers! On to…Red Dead Redemption 2???
