Famous industry analyst says Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto series will not be getting a mainstream canon sequel to their highly acclaimed Grand Theft Auto IV till 2012. This has come after speculations last week that GTA5 and L.A Noire will be released next year. Pachter, though, thinks otherwise.
“Take-Two’s share price has taken a battering recently, reflecting investor disappointment that there has been no update on the next Grand Theft Auto, which appears to have potentially slipped to 2012,” he said.
However, Pachter agrees on the speculations on L.A Noire being released in 2011. “Game delays have become the norm at Take-Two and we expect the company to announce a shift in release dates for LA Noire out of 2010 and into 2011.”
Ah, screw it, I’m gonna go play GTA IV and steal some cars.
