How many copies might Grand Theft Auto V sell? Well, the short simple answer is: Many.
But to be more specific, Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia expects the hotly anticipated title to sell around 14 million copies . He also anticipates a Q1 2013 launch.
Overall, such a sales total would rake in around $700 million in revenue for Take-Two, which anticipates seeing over $1 billion from Rockstar products in the current fiscal year. Max Payne 3 is already out but to hit that number, it seems obvious that GTAV will have to arrive; Bhatia says it's "all but a given" that Take-Two will bring us the new GTA before the end of the fiscal year (March 31, 2013). For the record, GTAIV debuted back in April of 2008 and shipped 13 million units before the end of March 2009, so the numbers the analyst predicts aren't out of the realm of possibility. In fact, it's probably inevitable, right?
We just want to see the game, damnit.
