According to industry analysts, Grand Theft Auto 5 is on target to sell a whopping 14 million copies at launch.
Stern Agee’s Arvind Bhatia has forecast that the game will generate US$700 million in revenue for publisher Take-Two Interactive, and will be released before the end of its financial year on March 31, 2013.
The game’s predecessor Grand Theft Auto 4 shipped 13 million units in its first year, and has gone on to sell more than 20 million units worldwide.
Arvind Bhatia had previously predicted a March 2013 release for the game, however Rockstar seem to like releasing games in May — Max Payne 3, L.A. Noire and Red Dead Redemption were all released during the month of May.
