And it’ll be another whopper, reckons the Janco analyst.

Janco Partners’ Mike Hickey believes it’s “likely” Take-Two will ship the next GTA in its financial 2012, which runs from April 2012-March 2013.

GTA V, or whatever it’s called, could sell 16 million copies and generate $750 million, he added.

The next in the series is rumoured to be set in Hollywood.

BioShock Infinite should release in the same 12 months, Hickey said, as reported by Gamespot, and sell around 4 million units.

Hickey believes Take-Two’s fiscal 2011 will be propped up by LA Noire and Max Payne 3. The two games are likely to be partnered by Duke Nukem Forever.

GTA IV released in April 2008. It was announced in March this year that the game had sold 15 million units globally.
