GTA 5 most likely to be released in 2013 claims analyst Arvind Bhatia. According to him GTA V will be launched in the publisher’s fourth fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2013.
He also confirmed there could be a possibility of a Wii U version.
Some reasons why GTA 5 will be launched in 2013 – analyst
1) Rockstar would prefer releasing the game in early 2013 to avoid the competition from the big holiday releases such as Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed etc.
Even GTA 4 was released on April 29, 2008.
2) Smoother earnings in FY14 especially if GTA V launches in the last month of FY13 (March 2013)
3) With their support to Nintendo Wii U, they will have a larger install base.
4) More extra months to finalize the game.
“Right now, we are very hard at work on the game and are excited as well to show and tell you more as development progresses – expect that we’ll be talking much more about GTA V starting at some point in a few months’ time.”
