GTA 5 Release Date: All Eyes On Take Two's Q1 2013 Report
Take Two's incoming financial report will determine whether GTA 5 launches in 2012, Spring 2013 or beyond according to analysts.
Published on Jul 30, 2012
GTA 5 could launch later than April 2013 according to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter - but only if publisher Take Two changes its financial forecast during its Q1 financial report on Tuesday.
"Take-Two has to get GTA out before March 31 to hit their financial guidance," he told NowGamer. "If they lower guidance when they report, it's not coming out by then. If they don't lower guidance, it is coming out."
Pachter admitted he has "no clue" if unaltered financial guidance would result in a "calendar 2012 or spring 2013," release.
Meanwhile, EEDAR's Jesse Divnich told NowGamer that someone would know if GTA 5 was set for a pre-Christmas launch. "Take-Two would have already notified retailers if GTA V was launching this holiday," he explained.
So does that mean we can strike 2012 off our GTA V release date predictions? All eyes will be on Take Two's investor call tomorrow evening for more details.
