Rockstar Preps GTA 5 for Record Sales

gtavlogo112(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Game developer Rockstar sure has big plans for its upcoming title Grand Theft Auto 5.

According to a report from CVG, the company has ordered an unprecedented 3 million copies of the game for the UK market.

Grand Theft Auto V will be released worldwide on September 17th.

The amount of copies isn’t too surprising. Just earlier this month, financial service provider The Cowen Group projected the game could sell 18 million units in just one year’s time.

The controversial series has been one the gaming industry’s biggest hits. Sales for Grand Theft Auto 4 previously reached 125 million just late last year.
