Now for some Grand Theft Auto V news and rumors. During a financial conference call from Take-Two Interactive, they revealed that Grand Theft Auto V may be launching in 2012.
According to rumors as reported by 1UP, Grand Theft Auto V’s development is apparently “well underway” and on track for a big push next year for the title. Which is “pretty likely” they say.
Watch The Latest Gaming News:
At the conference call for the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 (April 1, 2011 through June 30th), Take Two revealed that they have a loss of $8.6 million compared to last year, due to the fact that L.A. Noire, which sold well, could not match the unbridled success of Red Dead Redemption. A game that has now sold through an astonishing 11 million units (includes “sold to retailers”, not necessarily consumers).
However Take-Two states that they expect to make money on the critically panned Duke Nukem Forever, and revealed that digital sales from Take-Two games are more profitable than ever. Gaining the company a net revenue of $24.6 million, a 48% year-on-year increase for DLC.
Because of these reasons, it would make a lot of sense for Take-Two to launch a Grand Theft Auto V during this fiscal year. That would make up for the loss that they took.
And despite having a number of big games ready to launch in the 2012 fiscal year (like Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands 2), launching Grand Theft Auto V would secure the deal for them.
Note that Grand Theft Auto V is still technically unannounced, so we’re just assuming it’ll be coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U. Take all of this with a grain of salt until the game is actually revealed.
Hopefully Grand Theft Auto V will look even better than this realistic mod for the previous installment! Looks insane huh!
