Sales of Grand Theft Auto 4 have surged in the run up to GTA 5’s release, according to UK retailer Asda.
“GTA 4 has been flying off the shelves in anticipation,” Asda’s head of video games Craig Thirkell told MCV, in an article discussing the game’s imminent release. “[GTA 5] marks the first of our midnight launches for 2013. We have a few surprises up our sleeves to keep our customers happy on the night.”
GTA 4 launched over five years ago back in April 2008, but has sold consistently well since its release.
