Release window for GTA V opens in recent delay News PC Gaming PlayStation Xbox  Take Two Interactive Rockstar Games GTA V Grand Theft Auto V

Bioshock Infinite’s delay in 2013 leaves an open spot on the Take Two roster, a place that analysts believe could fit GTA V into the release schedule for 2012.  Wedbush Securities has believed all along that Grand Theft Auto V would release this year, and this latest development “opens the window for Grand Theft Auto V to be released in October 2012,” say their analysts.

‘The window is open for an October release,’says Wedbush“We were confident that both games would sell millions of units when it appeared they would be released in close proximity, we think that the delay will alleviate any wallet-share concerns and ensure that both games recieve the undivided attention of Take Two’s management and marketing teams, and will ensure that retail support is optimized.”

The securities firm believes that Take Two will be forced to reveal the release date for GTA V very soon.  Without Bioshock Infinite releasing this year, the company’s forecasted earnings are in danger of missing estimates.  To regain momentum, analysts at Wedbush believe that either in Take Two’s quarterly financials due at the end of May, or at E3, we’ll get a clearer picture of when to expect the next Grand Theft Auto.

GTA V was revealed last year, and since Rockstar unleashed the trailer for the game that revealed the setting and main character, the company has went radio silent.  Promising more details after the delivery of Max Payne 3, that date is approaching rapidly.

    So, AOTF didn’t name the “analyst” of Wedbush. It has to be Pachter. He’s probably too embarrassed because he a dumbass.

    Honestly I would have preffered to get Bioshock this year then have a couple of months to play GTA next year. I think the delay has come because they are adding multiplayer (for better or worse).
