GTA 5 to launch in Q1 2013 and sell 14 million – Analyst

Posted By | On 27th, May. 2012

GTA 5 could release in Q1 2013, according to an analyst. Arvind Bhatia from Sterne Agee, has revealed that he expects the game to sell 14 million during the launch window.

Modern Warfare 3 made $775 million during its launch window, and he expects GTA 5 to surpass that. Even Take-Two are quite optimistic considering the PS3 and Xbox 360’s install base is quite high.

When GTA 4 released in 2008, the install base was quite less compared to now, but the game still managed to sell more than 10 million on both platforms.

It should be a big launch for Take-Two and Rockstar, and it remains to be seen whether it releases on the Wii U or not. The platforms and release date wasn’t revealed during Take-Two’s financial results, but they might reveal it soon.
