Two New GTAIV DLC Episodes, GTAV In "Fiscal 2011"

PlayStation 3 owners are still miffed about not getting The Lost & Damned downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV, but here's hoping the next DLC batches will be PS3-bound.

As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, Take-Two and Rockstar should release two extra episodes for GTAIV in the fiscal year 2010, and the following fiscal year, we'll see Grand Theft Auto V. This information comes courtesy of analyst Todd Mitchell of Kaufman Bros. Equity Research, and he does say it's possible that the new DLC will come to both the PS3 and Xbox 360. In his quote, he says formats are "unsure" at this time, and he does expect to see GTAV hit during Take-Two's 2011 fiscal year, and believe it or not, there might be a new GTA for the aging PS2 as well. He says this is probably the "least likely" to happen of all his predictions, but he cites the many PSP GTA titles that have ended up on the PS2 in port form. Furthermore, in good news to investors, Kaufman Bros. have officially upgraded Take-Two to a "Buy" rating, simply because they believe the company isn't a one-franchise wonder anymore. Freshly announced Rockstar titles - like the PS3 exclusive, Agent - and other titles should really bolster Take-Two's position. This "solid lineup" means they don't have to rely so much on GTA, although you can bet the latter will remain lucrative.

Of course, any GTAV news will be gigantic but because it's so far off, we don't expect to see any rumors or speculation come around for a little while yet. But who knows?

Dramatic shootout at Texas Stadium WHILE its being demolished...police chases through Deep Ellum...Oh and mini-games and powerups at the State Fair..Doing drug-runs for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders in Plano...And dumbing "evidence" in the Trinity!...

Sounds like a hit to me.

The years in the headline and description do not match. The headline had it as "fiscal 2011," and the description has it as "fiscal 2010"

I think the article said that new DLC will be released in fiscal year 2010 and GTA V won't be until fiscal year 2011.

eeehhhh I really wish Rockstar would realize the quality of GTA would be better served on a ps3 only platform. I mean I think they know it, as the Agent and such, buuuttt still...hmm

Take-Two and R* seem to understand that they gotta diversify their portfolio: GTA, Agent, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3, & L.A. Noire. There's sure to a BIG hit in there somewhere (besides GTA of course).

Question: Doesn't Take-Two own 2K Games?

Meh, GTA is an all right series. Just same old, same old. Nothing new. Saints Row 2 is more fun and that's wierd because I dislike anything that tries to act gangster (Main reason why I hated GTA: SA). I much prefer the mob storyline of the other GTA games. It's just that Saints Row 2 plays way better. Now if there were a game with a GTA storyline (besides GTA: SA of course) and gameplay like Saints Row 2, that would be an awesome game.

Saints Row blows. Its the Flavor-aid of the sandbox genre: Just a cheap, colorful rip-off of the Kool-Aid.

FYI: NO real gangstas wear purple.

Saints Row does blow. Then again, I don't much like GTA either. Gangsters wearing purple. Ha!

Let me clarify. I only liked the gameplay of Saints Row 2. Meaning the shooting mechanics and how cars handle when driving them. I hated the Saints Row 2 storyline because its the typical wannabe gangsta story. I also liked the full customization of the character. I was just saying put Saints Row 2 mechanics with a GTA story and we got a winner. GTA games still get a higher score from me than Saints Row 2.

but TLATD is comming to ps3 in september i think.
ms had a 6 month exclusive deal with R*, just like fallout 3.
we will see LATD soon and ballad of tony soon.
as for the rest well R* have said theve got 3 DLC eps planned so we know theres atleast 1 TBA.
but i say screw the DLC worry about getting max payne and agency perfect.
than make GTAV BUT like san andreas or vice city.
make it more gang based like SA make your weapons upgradeable make the world bigger than SA make it that you can take team mates on a drive by.
make it that you have turf wars just like SA.
san andreas is by far the best one theve done, GTAV would be perfect like that.

because, it's so realistic... the car physics don't feel arcadish, the story was awesome, and the gameplay just worked so well... it deserved all the praise it got... the problem for lots of people was the fact that it was over-hyped and anything like that never lives up to expectations...

Yup quite passionate, complete with club & all.

But since I've haven't seen the TL&TD gameplay,
I plead the 5th on anything that might be even remotely related between them & us.

All I can say is I didn't get my "Saint" nickname because I've been a saint, quite the opposite......
but once again I shall continue to plead the 5th.

GTA4 ended far too soon and lacked alot of what I had grown to love from San Andreas. I'd much rather see a GTA5 sooner than these DLC being churned out here and there. Especially since they've yet to make an appearance on the PS3. I'm REALLY looking forward to Mafia2. The 1st one was a blast and everything I've read and seen from the sequel makes me giddy.

give the fans what they want.
another SA styled game in vice city, with lots of motorcycles and jumps.
that was the best part of VC going to the maiabu club and racing to the jump at the bridge.
vice city and SA are the best of the series, its hard to seperate the 2 but i think VC was a little better.
take the gameplay of SA like having a gang turf wars and sh** upgradable weapons, in the vice city area.
and theres your perfect sandbox title.
and for the record i love saints row 2 its a cartoony styled game.
GTA takes itself to seriously SR is just a run arround and do what ever you want type of game, i hope they will do a SR3
