Grand Theft Auto 5 may have only launched two days ago in Australia, but the sandbox title has already started breaking sales records with publishing company Take Two Interactive revealing that "Grand Theft Auto V delivered the highest first day retail sales of any title in the history of the Company and the Grand Theft Auto series."

According to the official press release, Grand Theft Auto 5 has taken home just over $800 million within the first 24 hours of its worldwide launch on September 17th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The company also notes that this excludes the upcoming launch in Japan and Brazil, so expect even more money to be coming in for the hard work at Rockstar.

"All of us at Take-Two are thrilled with the initial response to Grand Theft Auto V. Once again, the team at Rockstar Games have outdone themselves, setting the entertainment industry's new standard for creativity, innovation and excellence," said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two.

"Beginning at midnight on Monday, consumers around the world gathered in anticipation to be among the first to experience the evolution of this remarkable series. In North America alone, more than 8,300 stores opened their doors at midnight to welcome fans whose loyalty and enthusiasm were rewarded with what The New York Times called 'the most immersive spectacle in interactive entertainment'. We are incredibly proud of Rockstar Games' creative achievement and could not be more pleased with the success of this launch."
