Grand Theft Auto 5 could be set to launch in October following BioShock Infinite's delay to February according to a report by Wedbush Securities.
"We believe that October is the preferred release month for GTA V’s developer, Rockstar Games, as the studio has scheduled every prior GTA release during that month (with GTA IV delayed to April 2008, due to bugs in the PS3 version)," reads the report.
Wedbush Securities goes on to speculate "that once Rockstar Games notified Take-Two that GTA V would be ready by October, Take-Two gave Irrational Games the option to spend more time fine-tuning BioShock Infinite."
Take-Two could then give both releases its "undivided attention," the report states, adding that Take Two could reveal more during an invesor call on 22 May or "by E3", adding that the publisher's current financical forecast would be tough to achieve without a GTA release in the current financial year.
