Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter has just issued a note saying he does not expect GTA IV to make it past 12 million units this, leaving Take-Two as an obvious target.

“Notwithstanding the strong sell-in of GTA, we do not expect the game to sell more than 12 million units this fiscal year,” said the analyst. “We believe that Take-Two remains a takeover story rather than a fundamental one.”

Pachter’s maintaining a hold rating on the stock with a target of $26 based on the price of EA’s proposed bid for the firm.
