Molyneux: GTAV Sales Are “Not Impressive”
You’re probably foaming at the mouth after reading that headline, especially if you know that Grand Theft Auto V made an earth-shattering $800 million in its first 24 hours on sale, effectively doubling its spent budget.
However, Fable creator Peter Molyneux has said that GTA V sales are “not impressive” with reference to the mobile industry.

Molynuex, speaking at a mobile innovation conference with Mobile Entertainment last night, stated “It [GTAV] will achieve around $1 billion in revenue on consoles in just one month,” after acknowledging the game’s popularity.
“Sounds impressive doesn’t it?” Molyneux asked rhetorically before answering that question, “No. That’s not impressive.”
Molynuex went on to make his point by comparing the sales of GTAV, a phenomenally big budget AAA title, to the Mobile platform and mobile games who he says are “achieving between $3 million and $5 million a day.”
“That is impressive,” Molyneux concluded.
Personally, I find Molyneux’s comparison a bit on the silly side considering the vast differences compared to the mobile and console market.
But our Molyneux has always been a little on the nutty side.
