Maybe You Should Add GTAV To Your Holiday Wish List
If you're one of those people who love the holidays, and you're on the lookout for presents (for yourself) as of Memorial Day, one game should be on your list:
Grand Theft Auto V.
The pieces are starting to come together. Take-Two has predicted quite the successful fiscal year and as a result, several industry analysts - including Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter - are saying such a prediction can't come true without the launch of a major blockbuster title.
Pachter said the publisher's guidance is flat-out "unattainable" without something so huge, and Robert W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian has added that GTAV will ship in the next year. This means we can expect the hotly anticipated title before March 31, 2013, when Take-Two's fiscal year ends. On top of which, a NeoGAF forumite has pounced on a Xbox Support Twitter update (since deleted) that said GTAV would launch "later this year."
So maybe it's inevitable. Then again, maybe Take-Two wants the late winter or early spring all to themselves; if you remember, GTAIV released in April.
