GTAV To Release In Fall 2010?

Gamers just can't get enough of GTA these days, so it's no surprise to see fans speculating on a possible release for the fifth installment. Chances are, many gamers are still knee-deep in GTAIV, but that doesn't mean they can't look to the future, right?

Well, a quote from industry analyst Michael Pachter, made some time ago, has only recently come to our attention. It seems like it could be a viable prediction, but we wonder where he gets his information from... Check it out:

“I actually think they already have a story in mind. GTA5 is already in the planning stage and my guess is you’ll see [the next GTA] in two and a half years. In fall of 2010, there’ll be Grand Theft Auto 5.”

That's a pretty specific statement, and we'd love to know more about this. It's obvious that there will be another GTA, but how does he know they have a "story in mind?" We figure he can accurately predict a release date - it's part of his job, after all - but the fall of 2010 is a very firm statement, and again, we wonder if Rockstar has released information on GTAV that only "insiders" have seen. Two and a half years is a distinct possibility, but things could change if/when EA acquires Take-Two, which is a move that some gamers are dreading. Stay tuned for more.

He's news. He gets attention because, along with Pacific Coast Securities' Evan Wilson, he's THE analyst for this industry.

I didn't make it that way and he's not always right; that's just the way it is.

ok, little brainteaser...
you guys are arguing parallel.
it's not that there won't be an installment...

i actually do believe a possibility by 2010...
however!,
it won't (MOST definately) not be gta V, but rather, gta 4 - vice city/SA/wherever, etc...

remember, GTA LC/VC/SA are all GTA 3 installments, just in different cities. sure they made some small aspects better, but the engine is the same...
and that shall be for another 10 yrs maybe...(maybe 8), but still, there won't be a true gta 5 for a looooong time...

(in my humble opinion...)
