GTAV could sell 25 million copies, says some guy

26 Oct 2011 by Paul Younger
How to get quoted in a videogame publication 101. Some guy named Arvind Bhatia, an analyst for Sterne Agee (who?), believes the Rockstar's recently announced Grand Theft Auto V could sell 25 million copies. Why am I writing about this? Analysts rarely say anything interesting. I guess I'm writing this up because it's GTAV related..? Anyway, 25 million copies would put it on par with the sales figures for Call of Duty: Black Ops - the world's best ever selling game ever and ever. By comparision, Grand Theft Auto IV shifted a 'mere' 22 million copies. In over big-number news: Take-Two's share profit rose 7% yesterday, on the back of the GTAV announcement. Ker-ching!
