Recently Online retailer Amazon updated their GTA V (Grand Theft Auto V) listing with a new date “March 26, 2013”, many GTA series fans were of the opinion that this new date looks pretty LEGIT since the day falls on Tuesday which makes sense in US for launch.
However according to me, GTA V will not launch in March 2013, and i have listed below two important reason behind this theory of mine. Check them out below and let me know in the comment section whether you agree with it or not, and when would you like to see (month) GTA V launch?.
1: Take-Two vs Take-Two with GTA V and BioShock Infinite?
According to latest Amazon rumor, GTA V will launch on March 26, 2013. This new launch date is right next to another big games (BioShock Infinite) that’s developed by a firm owned by publisher Take-Two Interactive. It will really be a strange thing if Take-Two releases both GTA V and BioShock Infinite in the same month, isn’t it?. Both these games appeals to different genre of gamers, and so Take-Two, Rockstar Games and Irrational Games in every possible way would like to avoid a situation of eating into each other profit share.
2: Huge Competition with Fuse, God of War: Ascension and Tomb Raider
March 2013 is already a busy month with a number of new games, which include Fuse, God of War: Ascension and Tomb Raider. This healthy competition could prove a Double-edged sword for all the above mention games (including GTA V and BioShock Infinite). With GTA V being the most anticipated games of 2013, Take-Two and Rockstar would like to have a clear path for it’s release.
Rockstar Games has already confirmed Spring 2013 release window for Grand Theft Auto V i.e (March-May). If we eliminate March month from this period for all the above mention reason, we are left with April or May. Now considering the fact that last Grand Theft Auto game released at the end of April in Europe and North America, it only adds to the likelihood of April and May for a GTA 5 launch.
So guys let us know in the whether you agree with this post? and also when would you like to see GTA V release?.
