GTA 5 will sell 25 million copies in 12 months, according to analyst

Analyst believes GTA 5 will sell upward of 20 million copies in 12 months, despite the release date.

EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich believes that Rockstar’s highly anticipated will GTA 5 will sell 25 million copies within its first 12 months to become one of the fastest selling games of all time. And that’s despite the April/May release date, which publishers usually avoid.

“The HD market is softening as we enter into the tail end of this generation, but fortunately this softening has had little impact on our precious AAA titles,” Divinch said while speaking with NowGamer. “In the case of GTA V, I have little concerns about when it is released. GTA IV already proved to the market that even an April release, which has historically been avoided by the industry, can support a 20M+ title.”

He added: “Whether April, June, or even Winter, I’d expect GTA V to sell in upwards of 25M copies in its first 12 months.”

It’s certainly plausible.

A new GTA 5 trailer will be releasing within the next few days. Keep your eyes peeled.
