That’s right, Amazon.co.uk reportedly broke the street-date for Grand Theft Auto V, with many players who pre-ordered the game getting it this weekend, ahead of its global release date on Tuesday.
Now, it looks like Rockstar is currently investigating this, and issued the following statement:
“We are in the process of investigating early ‘sales’ to determine how and why that is occurring.”
Apparently, Rockstar placed strict guidelines on the sale of GTA V, having requested that online retailers do not dispatch copies until the day before release. So, it isn’t yet known how the publisher will react and/or if it will penalise Amazon for dispatching copies to customers early.
GTA V launches *officially* this Tuesday, September 17, with a PSN preload due to go live today…
