In this post I'll share my thoughts on GTA V as the release comes closer. Today I'll give my thoughts as to the release window of GTA V, if it will come out in Spring as advertised or later.
Here is the possiblities for both theories.
For Spring release.
Take-two has been known for releasing more than two games in one year as stated in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_Of_Video_Games_Published_by_2k_Games. In fact, in 2012 alone Take-Two has released five games that year with Borderlands 2 and XCOM:Enemy Unknown less than a month apart.
There has been some speculation that the game will come out in October. Yet releasing GTA V at that time could put it at risk with competition from Call of Duty and Pokemon X and Y plus the possibility of next-gen consoles coming out at that time. Unless these consoles have backwards compatibility and/or that companies continue to support the current-gen consoles as well as next-gen, GTA V could face a fractured audience if it would to get released on next-gen consoles.
For a later release.
Rockstar has had most of their games delayed in recent years. But in spite of some belief Rockstar is not doing this to get at their audience. The video game industry is a unpredictable buisness with the possibility of glitches, bugs, and the game taking longer than expected for their timetable. (Not saying this will happen but all possibilities must get explored.) Rockstar wants to release the best game possible as evident in Red Dead Redemption and sometimes a delay is nessicary. yet this doesn't mean a long delay. It could just mean two weeks or even a Summer release.
Next time I'll talk about my theories for the game and share my speculation for what to expect for gameplay
