GTA V Likley to Launch in early 2013

 

Analyst group Sterne Agee has shifted its expectations for the release date of Rockstar's upcoming Grand Theft Auto V, stating that the game is now more likely to launch at the start of next year than later this year as previously thought.

 

Rockstar officially unveiled GTA V late last year, although no fixed release date has yet been provided. Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia had previously said that the title could well see sales of up to 25 million units within its first year on sale.

 

The group had previously stated that it believes the highly anticipated next in the GTA series will launch in the third quarter of the current fiscal year, just before Christmas. However, Bhatia has now stated that a March 2013 release is more likely.

 

The analyst has even noted that a March release would be more beneficial for the title, as it will then launch in a less crowded window away from the next installments of Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed.

 

He also suggested that a 2013 release will leave the potential for a Nintendo Wii U launch for the game, while giving Rockstar more time to polish up the final product."

 

 

They think Rockstar doesn't want to battle the November AAA titles, want time to polish the game and make a WII U verison.

 

 

EDIT: Proabaly should of realized it was old, lock if need be mods!

I know others have posted this before but IGN picked up this article so I thought I would post it.

Old!

 

But Rockstar could battle those games and even win.

Were talking GTA here, has more name then some series called Call Of Duty with all due respect.

 

But yea, I believe in a Oct-Dec release, if not then well... be it, I can wait!
