Rockstar had planned to reveal the box art of Grand Theft Auto 5 but unfortunately it got delayed. A Rockstar representative has confirmed that the reveal will happen later.
A Rockstar representative said this on the official website: “For those of you asking about the official box art, that will be coming out a bit later as well.” Earlier we had reported about Rockstar being straight forward about baseless speculation on GTA 5’s release date delay.
In a related story, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter believes that the delay will not hamper Grand Theft Auto 5 sales. He said, “The delay is not particularly leveraging to the game’s revenue and profit potential,” to Examiner.
“I’m sure that there are a handful of gamers who will pass on the game solely because they are buying a next generation console this fall, but that number is in the thousands, not the millions, so it’s not a huge problem,” Pachter believed.
It is kind of a trend at Rockstar to delay their high profile video games. But will this mean a better product for the gamers? Earlier impressions tell us so, but these extra few months should help the developers to churn out even more from the PS3 and Xbox 360.
