Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia expects Grand Theft Auto V to release during early 2013, which he feels will not only provide Rockstar with time for extra polishing, but also give the firm a “potential” window in which to launch the game on Wii U. Bhatia expects the game to hit during March of next year, a release window which would keep it from going up against the next Call of Duty title and Assassin’s Creed 3 this fall. Rockstar has yet to announce a release window for the title.Thanks, Gamasutra.
