GTA 5 'Could Realistically Slip To Financial Year 2014' - Analyst

Tom Hopkins


A report suggests Rockstar's development of GTA 5 could slip into FY2014, despite evidence to the contrary.

GTA 5 is widely regarded to be launching in the current financial year, 2013, because of publisher Take-Two's rather optimisitic financial guidance for the period ending in March next year.

But not every industry analyst is so sure GTA 5 will be out before then.

At the end of a Gamasutra story regarding the fate of BioShock Infinite now that two key developers have left Irrational, a quote from Janco Partners' Mike Hickey suggested GTA 5 may well slip until after March 2013.

"We suspect both GTA V and Bioshock Infinite could realistically slip into a fiscal ‘14 release period," he said, meaning an April 2013 release at the earliest.

Should a slip happen, Rockstar may target yet another May release window after Max Payne 3, LA Noire and Red Dead Redemption launched in that month.

Max Payne 3 was just the latest Rockstar game to be delayed.

We've dropped Mike an email for further comment.
