GTA 5 Release Date: 2012 Is Unlikely Launch Timing, Says Analyst
The game will come out in 2013.
Jesse Divinch, an analyst from EEDAR, is not bullish on the fact that GTA 5 will release this year and he plenty of logical reasons to support his prediction. Rockstar will release three new screenshots today as they have been steadily releasing a bunch of screenshots as a part of a promotion program to quell the thirst of unsatisfied fans.
However, that shouldn’t be taken as an indicator that Rockstar will release the game soon. Here’s what Divinch had to say:
“Rockstar has the best marketing and promotions team in the industry. They are very methodical on when they decide to release assets, and they most certainly do not follow the standard video game marketing script,” he told NowGamer.
“I believe Rockstar is playing their cards very close to the chest, but they understand the need to continually tease consumers on GTA V’s pending release. A Christmas release is probably out of the realm of possibility at this point. Competitors have already placed their stake in the ground and while GTA V has no direct competitor, the combination of 2 to 4 great Action and Shooter titles this season could produce problems for a GTA holiday release.”
“It’s GTA V, release timing doesn’t matter. GTA IV launched in April of 2008, and prior to its release April was considered the “worst” month to launch a title.”
