Analyst: GTA V could sell 25 million in first year

Grand Theft Auto V could potentially sell a whopping 25 million copies in its first year on the market, believes Jesse Divnich, analyst with EEDAR.

Speaking during an interview with NowGamer, Divnich also dismissed any concerns over the game’s release window, which is targeted at Spring 2013.

“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.”

“I have little concerns about when it is released,” he continued, “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. Whether April, June, or even Winter, I’d expect GTA V to sell in upwards of 25M copies in its first 12 months.”

GTA V will be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A new trailer will debut on November 14, so keep your eyes peeled.
