Analysts just can’t come to a consensus when it comes to a release date for Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V. According to the most recent predictions, Colin Sebastian of R.W. Baird believes that a 2012 release date is out of the question for Rockstar when it comes to GTA V.
Sebastian stated that the open world title will arrive in early 2013, despite reports that Bioshock Infinite’s delay opened a window for Take Two Interactive to release the game this year. This opinion comes at odds with other analysts, who still have the title pegged for late 2012.
Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities has stuck to his guns, and believes that Rockstar is already committed to releasing the title in October. Online findings saw a developer resume which listed the game for an October 2012 release date, but aside from rumors and speculation, Rockstar hasn’t announced anything officially as of yet.
Rockstar has kept the stance that all GTA V intel would be held back until the release of Max Payne 3, which happens to be tommorrow. We could hear more about Grand Theft Auto V shortly, many believe that if Rockstar has intentions of releasing the game either late this year, or early next year, they’ll be announcing something at or around E3.
