GTA V has being one of the most successful titles in video game history. Toping 800 million worldwide in its first 24 hours in launch-day sales and achieved $1 billion during its first three days. Making it the highest grossing title in the history of Grand Theft Auto series
Speaking with Rockstar North studio president Leslie Benzies, confirmed that over 1,000 staff members have worked on GTA V.
“It’s probably more, much more. It takes 1,000 people to make a game, that’s a requirement. And that’s because of the size of the thing, we are modelling at such a minute detail. Once upon a time the car models have four moving parts. Now there are 15 alone in a car’s retractable roof. The detail is ten, twenty times greater than GTA IV, so it takes ten, twenty times more people.”
GTA V launched September 17th worldwide for the PS3.
