Poised to be the fastest selling title of all time in the UK this September.
Rockstar Games knows that their upcoming open world action adventure title and the follow-up to one of the most successful franchises of all time Grand Theft Auto V will open to a big reaction. In fact, they’re taking no chances and have set aside a massive three million copies for the game’s launch in the UK, according to a retail source that spoke to CVG.
This means that Grand Theft Auto V is already poised to beat the stuffing out of the previous holder of the title of fastest selling game in the UK ever, namely Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Considering that the install base of both Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles in the UK is about 13 million units, this means that Grand Theft Auto V will be selling to a fifth of the total number of consoles in that country. Heck, and that’s just the copies at launch – it could easily reach 10 million units sold in the UK alone.
Grand Theft Auto V will be shipping worldwide on September 17th.
