Analyst: GTA 5 to sell 14 million copies, bring in $700 million for publisher
We have seen nothing of GTA 5, bar the announcement trailer, but that hasn’t stopped analysts from predicting the game will sell at least 14 million copies.
This comes from Sterne Agee’s Arvind Bhatia, who also expects the game to debut in the first third of 2013. He noted that it will bring about $700 million revenue for Take-Two.
The above numbers don’t seem too far-fetched once you take into account GTA 4’s sales: 20 million over two years. In fact, it shipped 13 million in its first year alone.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is expected to be unveiled at E3 next month.
I think GTA 5 will be one of the biggest game releases of the year although and maybe even surpass the 14 million copies with the worldwide gaming community rising. I even read at Games Landscape (http://gameslandscape.com/are-we-living-in-a-super-advanced-game/) the game sets the first steps into so called man made universes. Maybe a more philosophical aproach but really have the feeling that where GTA is heading is really in one word epic. Can't wait for this to hit stores!
