Next GTA in “calendar 2010,” expects Pachter

Monday, 21st September 2009 22:00 GMT By Patrick Garratt


How long to wait for the next Grand Theft Auto? Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter reckons you’ve got about a year to go.

“While we still expect a GTA game in calendar 2010, it is not clear that the game will be released before the end of Take-Two’s fiscal year ending October 31,” Pachter said today as he downgraded his rating on Take-Two stock from “outperform” to “neutral”.

Piper Jaffray’s Anthony Gikas recently said that he expects the next in gaming’s ultimate franchise to arrive in “FY ’11,” or the 12 months beginning November 1, 2010.

Add the two together and you have GTA V releasing in the fourth calendar quarter of 2010.

Or not, obviously.

    V will be there but not this generation.
    No after the 2 ep’s we will get a different city in the same engine, called: GTA:”name of the city”

    that is so obvious if you look at the history of rockstar

    Did they even hear about Agent?

    I mean, what are they saying about that? That it just doesn’t exist? Or that it’s GTAgent?

    I predict the next GTA will be V and it’ll be a PS3 exclusive out in October 10

    There’s no way on earth GTAV will be PS3 exclusive unless Sony are prepared to write a cheque for about $150m. Have you seen how many copies GTAIV has sold across all platforms? Why would Take Two want to give up those numbers? And anyway, PS3 is getting Agent.

    So the easiest post Cort, would be Psychotext’s:

    He posted that while I was typing mine. But I still would have responded because it’s not the first time I’ve read someone claiming the next GTA will be PS3 exclusive.

    That’s actually a similar reason I posted what I did rather than the slightly longer version. ;)

    you heard it here first, theres no possible way they’ll release a new GTA within 2010 having just finished ballad of gay tony, polishing red dead, and Agent.

    its not happening.

    I agree with scuz.

    These empty hype generating statements/rumors so popular these days of late in the industry are really fucking annoying. Stop being such a pompous ass trying to look all intelligent guessing like some modern day amateur Nostradamus or something regarding when the next super mario bros game will come out and how many stars he will be collecting this time and why we should care.

    We haven’t heard a 2011 game announced yet have we? GTAV would sure make a strong candidate for patience…

    …also, would they go with “V” or “5″….

    GTA V in 2011, not before. Those suckers take at least three years to make.

    Rockstar North are doing Agent for Sony at the moment, while their might be some pre-production work being done for GTAV I doubt we’ll see GTAV till 2012.

    I don’t understand these analysts ignoring Agent.

    Do they assume it will be vapourware?
