Grand Theft Auto titles do not need to be annualized said Take-Two during its Q4 fiscal call to investors.
According to Take-Two, GTA is a strong enough franchise that it does not need a new release annually, especially with the completion of the GTA IV story through DLC proving to remain profitable.
Guess GTA V will be landing sometime in 2011, then.
The call is ongoing, we’re listening, and will update you if anything interesting happens.

Tucked away on page 13 of the manual for GTA IV: Episodes from Liberty City, owners will find a fake advertisement that possibly hints at the location of the next game in the series.
Who knows with the folks at Rockstar. They are your typical prom night tease.
At any rate, the advert says: Liberty City, It’s Over! Next Stop …. something Seagull. The corner of the advert is intentionally ripped with what looks like countryside.
Nice one there.
It does say “opens March everywhere” as well, so who knows what that mean – if anything – or if it even pertains to the same thing. Bah. We’re confused now, so we’ll stop.
More through GTA4.net.

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.

Piper Jaffray’s Anthony Gikas has bumped his Take-Two target up to $15, from $11, saying in a note that GTA V is “expected” in the company’s fiscal ’11.
“Our confidence in the company’s profitability profile is improving as product flow for FY 2010 is greatly improved and Grand Theft Auto V is expected in FY ‘11,” he said today.
“Assuming no change to product flow, we expect the company will have 10-plus games that will sell over one million units.”
Take-Two is currently in its ’09 Q4, which ends on October 31. FY ’10 ends October 31, 2010. Mr Gikas here is saying GTA V will release sometime in the 12 months ending October 31, 2011.
That’s a long time to wait, isn’t it?

We were lucky enough to get nearly 20 minutes with Realtime Worlds boss and original GTA creator Dave Jones at Develop yesterday, the result of which you can see after the break.
We talked almost exclusively about APB, Jones telling us when the game will release, how much it’s cost to make and going into good detail on the mechanics of the MMO itself.
Jones also gave opinion on the state of the GTA franchise, calling Vice City the “pinnacle” of the IP.
There’s tons more stuff in there. Enjoy.

Play Insights sent out a survey asking if a karma system should be implemented into the Grand Theft Auto series.
Over on the WiiSpace forums, member Da Ill One posted a screenshot of it, and this is what it read:
Do you think Grand Theft Auto would benefit from having a “karma” system or “good” vs. “evil” actions mechanism that allowed you to choose your overall path by doing good or bad actions, where those actions have an accumulative impact on how the game unfolds? When answering, please consider the idea of being “good” or “evil” and NOT the particular execution / how this feature would be implemented.
Granted this is a survey and does not denote whether Rockstar would include such a feature in the next GTA game, but the thought is still intriguing.

Rockstar’s released a bit of information on soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, which will “capture the spirit” of the franchise’s genres and stations over the years.
Original music for stations includes: Electro-Choc, IF99, Tuff Gong, The Beat and Radio Broker.

Rockstar’s Sam Houser reckons Games for Windows Live is ideal for the PC version of GTA IV. Luckily, then, the game’s online modes will be exclusively matched to the service when it launches on November 18.
“We’re incredibly proud of the deep, customisable multiplayer experience that Grand Theft Auto IV offers players,” said Houser.
“As we work toward the release of the PC version, Games for Windows – Live affords us the opportunity to seamlessly translate the multiplayer console experience for PC gamers. The service is a natural fit for the platform and we strongly believe it will help in building a strong online community around GTA IV PC.”
So there we are.
