After retailer Amazon reportedly breaks street-date for open-world game, developer examining "how and why that is occurring."

Rockstar Games is currently investigating early sales of its much-hyped open-world action game Grand Theft Auto V, the developer has confirmed with GamesIndustry International.

Retailer Amazon reportedly broke the street-date for GTAV, with copies heading to some purchasers ahead of the game's global release date on Tuesday.

"We are in the process of investigating early 'sales' to determine how and why that is occurring," a Rockstar Games representative said.

GTAV is expected to be one of the biggest games of this generation, with one analyst predicting it could sell as many as 20 million copies by March 2014.

Yes. Get on that Rockstar. Teach these bad guys a lesson in a rockstar way.



Doesn't this happen with almost every retail game?  Sure EBgames can't sell it early but little mom and pop video game stores usually do.



Why does it matter... they're still making money, they're actually being sort of dicks with the release, especially removing all videos put up on YouTube and banning people... seriously, dafuq.

They dont want people to watch the videos and be spoiled off and decide to cancel the pre-order - of course even Rockstar cares about the 1k people out of the 18+ million potential customers who would do that l0l.
