Take 2 suggests GTA 5’s release date will miss this financial year
So next year release then?
Grand Theft Auto 5’s release date reveal delay is something that is not only annoying to many people out there, but Take 2 has not been able to say anything even though it has been in development for over 4 years now.
They’ve released a bunch of screenshots to appease fans, but that’s not going to enough. There have been solid rumors that the game will miss this year.
Recently at the Take 2 investor meeting, Rockstar’s representative Dan Emerson mentioned that Borderlands 2 has been received well by critics and is the most pre-ordered game after GTA 4 and San Andreas. This is great news but they also mentioned that key titles have been delayed.
One of them is Bioshock Infinite which was delayed recently and the other could be obviously Grand Theft Auto 5. There is no way Rockstar is going to release the game this fiscal year considering their projections aren’t that high now.
“Sadly, GTA V was mentioned (Rockstar releasing screenshots and development is coming along), but of the key games talked about, it was the only one where a release date was not attached. This does suggest the game is likely not going to be hitting retail shelves this side of March 31st 2013 when the financial year ends. Some have speculated a May 2013 release period which is more likely,” wrote Cramgaming.
There is still one batch of screenshots remaining.
