After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

5 Reasons To Believe Grand Theft Auto V Will Release This Fall

Posted on Wednesday, May 9 @ 09:00:00 PST by
Today's news that Bioshock Infinite would be delayed to February 2013 provided a strong suggestion that Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive will release Grand Theft Auto V this year in the Fall gaming season. Unfortunately, we're still left wondering, so here are five reasons to believe and give in to the hope.

5) Bioshock Infinite's Delay

Many skeptics pointed to BioShock Infinite's October release date as the reason for a Spring 2013 GTA V release. Publishing two high-profile titles in the same window would essentially force Take-Two to canabalize its own profits. This would make both titles less of a success and lead investors to question the company's judgement.

Of course, with Bioshock Infinite well out of the way, Rockstar Games and Take-Two are ready to drop an even bigger bomb on the holiday shopping season.

4) Analysts Analyzing

The soulless financial husks out there continue to suggest that Grand Theft Auto V is ready and will release in the Fall of 2012. Michael Pachter, the professional mouth-piece of gaming money-markets, didn't hesitate to reiterate the high possibility of GTA V's release this year:

In our view, the delay opens the window for Grand Theft Auto V to be released in October 2012. We speculate that once Rockstar Games notified Take-Two that GTA V would be ready by October, Take-Two gave Irrational Games the option to spend more time fine-tuning Bioshock Infinite. Although we were confident that both games would sell millions of units when it appeared that they would be released in close proximity, we think that the delay will alleviate any wallet-share concerns and ensure that both games receive the undivided attention of Take-Two's management and marketing teams, and will ensure that retail support is optimized.

3) The Globalization of Rockstar Games

It's true that Max Payne 3 and Grand Theft Auto V are projects on a massive scale. Most publishers and developers would never dream of taking on these two games so closely together. However, it can very easily be said that Max Payne 3 is not in the same class as GTA V. With development studios around the world, Max Payne 3's core team was heavily assisted throughout development.

While Rockstar Vancouver was the lead team on Max Payne 3, additional work has been done by Rockstar New England, Rockstar London, and Rockstar Toronto. Two years ago, Red Dead Redemption was completed through a team effort of Rockstar San Diego and Rockstar North.

In total, Rockstar Games has nine studios at its disposal: Japan, Leeds, Lincoln, London, New England, North, San Diego, Toronto, and Vancouver. What have they all been doing?
