Rockstar UK told videogaming247 today that the company has no specific retail launch events planned for Grand Theft Auto IV’s release next Tuesday.

“We’re not doing a Rockstar event but I know some retailers will be doing their own midnight opening launch events,” said a spokesperson.

None of the UK retailers have announced any midnight plans as yet, but we’d expect the Virgins and HMVs of this world to give it a go.

Joystiq just posted this “execution guide” for American Wal-Mart stores to handle the rush once the game goes on sale. Worth a look.
