Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive filed a complaint this week with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) seeking to claim the domain GTAV.com. The domain name is currently registered to a Spanish resident and listed as "for sale." While the domain name currently redirects users to the official Grand Theft Auto V website, in February it sent users to a blog about the game.
Take-Two has filed more over 24 disputes against websites related to GTA V – including one that promised access to a beta test of the game (gta5betacode.com).
Grand Theft Auto V releases on Sept. 17 for Xbox 360 and PS3 in Europe and North America. The game releases in Japan Oct. 10 on both platforms. Analysts predict (as they usual do with any new game in this series) that GTA V will drive up profits for Take-Two in the last quarter of the year.
