Rockstar investigating early GTAV sales

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.

GameSpot's GTAV review is scheduled to go live tomorrow at 10 a.m. EDT.
