GTA V Release Date Unlikely before March
The GTA V release date has been a topic on the minds of many video game fans, as they wait for the latest announcement from Rockstar Games. Just recently, the Take-Two company gave a small bit of info about the “Grand Theft Auto V” game development progress.
As reported by NowGamer.com on Friday, September 21, Take-Two’s chairman and CEO had some comments which updated fans with just a small sliver of information on the game. Strauss Zelnick noted that the game was “making substantial progress” and in “full development” at Rockstar Games. Zelnick also discussed how Take-Two had a new loss of $107.7 million for last year, and discussed how the delay of big titles like “BioShock Infinite” played a part in that. He added regarding this:
“ “Although our commitment to quality may occasionally affect near-term results, we believe it’s the right approach for maximizing revenue and profits over the long-term.”
Many speculate that GTA V will arrive in the first or second quarter of 2013 before April. Some had hoped for a 2012 release in time for the holiday shopping season, but it appears there are many other video games being released in this time frame. It’s not that “Grand Theft Auto” will need to worry about competition though, but the game just doesn’t appear ready for a big launch yet.
Basically these latest comments indicate that a “Grand Theft Auto V” release date is still coming, and assure fans that the highest quality game will be developed. Unfortunately, not much more has been given out than that, leaving loyal fans of the game to wonder if there will be any more trailers, screenshots or news before the end of 2012.
