GTA V is a fitting tribute to the the seventh console generation and the game is set to break all sales records when it launches tomorrow. At the time of writing, GTA 5 is a matter of hours from release in the US and has seen busy midnight launches across Europe.
VGChartz estimates that total worldwide pre-order figures for Grand Theft Auto V for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have reached unprecidented levels. Our data shows that the game has more than 7 million pre-orders worldwide breaking down to around 3.7 million for the Xbox 360 and around 3.4 million for the PlayStation 3.
Sales for the day one are expected to reach more than 10 million units and this number could grow to 14-15 million units by the weekend. To put that number into perspective, the current record holder, Call of Duty: Black Ops II sold just under 11 million units in its first five days on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Stay tuned to VGChartz for the latest GTA 5 sales updates as more data becomes available and see the GTA 5 Wiki for more information about the game.
