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.
