|mkey82: What makes you think current consoles will go on the same timeline as the previous ones?|
IMHO it's the same as always. The technology gap becomes to obvious. Consoles become outdated, people want nicer graphics and console manufacturers want more money for new consoles.
This time around Sony got screwed over with premature x360 release so in the next iteration I think they will try not let that happen and will probably try to remake the PS2 campaign. PS2 was out early, it had loads of titles to support it (look at PS3, it needed to wait for a year and a half before the first real console seller got released) and it sold very well all over the globe. And it still sell (almost 120 million, I think). The 5 five year life span in gaming technology is to long as is. IMHO we will see the new consoles somewhere on the start of 2012 and I'm not sure R* has enough time to develop one more (new) GTA. There will probably be something like more DLC or GTA IV LC Stories or something like that. The development was expensive and they need to milk it dry.

better spent on gameplay features that add to longevity, and freedom
IMHO they should have concentrated on making the game a bit more realistic and finetuning the engine. If they really wanted to lay tracks for next GTA.
