Highest launch-day revenue of any GTA/Take-Two game

Take-Two Interactive announced today that Grand Theft Auto V has pulled in $800 million in worldwide sales from launch day alone. This is the highest first day retail sales of any GTA game, and in the history of the company.

This also marks a new record in day-one sales in general, as the previous record holder was Call of Duty: Black Ops II with first-day sales in the $500 million range. Grand Theft Auto IV made $310 million in the first 24 hours back in 2008.
