Analyst Warns Investors Of Potential Grand Theft Auto V Delay

Posted on Monday, September 24 @ 12:11:19 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

If you are planning to play Grand Theft Auto V early next year, you may want to hold your horses.

An investor note sent out by Colin Sebastian, a Robert W. Baird analyst, shares several concerns with Grand Theft Auto V's expected release date of March 2013.

 One, we haven’t heard anything definitive from the company on release timing," he said. "Second, retailers typically would want 4-6 months lead time to prepare for a launch as large as GTA, and from [what] I understand they haven’t heard anything. Third, Rockstar rightly prioritizes game quality over release date, and this dynamic could shift timing.

Truthfully, operating outside of the holiday or early fiscal year (March) windows would hinder potential sales, so at this point we're talking about a late 2013 release. My greatest concern is late 2013 is expected to be the launch date for at least one of Sony or Microsoft's consoles. Not even Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas dared to debut when a new generation of its supported platforms were out.

Then again, this is Grand Theft Auto we're talking about; it's going to sell millions and be awesome no matter when it finally shoots to store shelves.
