GTAV Slated For Fiscal Year 2011?

The last time a reporter brought up Grand Theft Auto V, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick responded with the quote of the year. But that doesn't mean other people can't speculate on a possible release window.

That goes double for analysts, who know investors are usually waiting to leap aboard the Take-Two bandwagon just before a new GTA hits the market. And according to VG247, Piper Jaffray's Anthony Gikas has raised his Take-Two stock target from $11 to $15, saying Grand Theft Auto V "is expected" during the company's fiscal year 2011. Said Gikas:

"Our confidence in the company’s profitability profile is improving as product flow for FY 2010 is greatly improved and Grand Theft Auto V is expected in FY '11. Assuming no change to product flow, we expect the company will have 10-plus games that will sell over one million units."

If you need a quick lesson, Take-Two is currently in their fourth quarter for the fiscal year 2009, and that ends on October 31. To say GTAV will launch in "FY 2011" means the game should be available some time between October 31, 2010 and October 31, 2011...which is quite a large release window. But it does get people thinking: might it be available for next year's holiday rush? If so, you can bet that once again, more big-name games will leap into 2012 to get away from a massive blockbuster. ...okay, we're getting a little ahead of ourselves here.

@Ben

I gotta agree there. I still haven't gotten myself to finish IV yet! Vice City just had an addictive feel to it. Idk what it is...it IS basically the same thing.

That's exactly the problem for me. IV was just ok and yet the reviews were through the roof. When V comes out it will be very hard to trust any reviews.

Actually, I might have to put GTAV on the old "pick it up later" list because it's going to have to be a multiplat and thus a sufferer of mediocrity.

I hear ya. But, I'm 100% sure I read an article a year or so back stating that GTA4 would be having exclusive content for the 360, as we've seen, while Sony would be getting GTA5 as an exclusive. But it also said that both the 360 and the ps3 versions would be getting common content for GTA4, and we have seen any yet for the ps3...

I just really hope they take their time and give us an extremely polished game (which is likely).
That, and a 70s- or 90s-era Vice City. 'Twould be truly 'Grand.'

Oh, and there's a tiny mistake in the article:
'But it does get people thinking: might it be available for next year's holiday rush? If so, you can bet that once again, more big-name games will leap into 2012'
If it's released next Christmas season, titles will be pushed back to 2011.

Anyone know when the exclusive deal for DLC runs out with microsoft?

Have to say I hate these exclusive deals be it M$ or Sony, but it is M$ that seems to have to rely on these tactics more and more.

GTA games are so overrated period. GTAIV was the biggest rip off next to Halo 3. They need to innovate alot on GTAV for me to even consider renting. Crazy violence and more violence doesn't make a game fun.

gta actually sucks.the storyline is lame and very predictive.it should be a violent game were you can do different type of crimes like raping your boss' daughter infront of him for revenge or other sort of stuff like that,not just by killing but impailing the other's personal side,body mutilation by use of new weapons such as chainsaw or nailcutter would also be a great idea.now that sounds fun right?lol
