Bad news regarding GTA V? :(
Me is the sad. :(
During the Take 2 investor meeting held today, Dan Emerson talked about the company’s outlook citing Borderlands 2 as being well received as well as mentioning the soon to be released 2K Sports NBA 2K 13. There’s more positive outlook with XCOM Enemy Unknown releasing on October 9th. Emerson also talked about a delay in key titles (Bioshock Infinite perhaps?) which has meant projections were down, although online distribution sales were up and accounted for 13% of the company’s revenue for the period.
Sadly, GTA V was mentioned (Rockstar releasing screenshots and development is coming along), but of the key games talked about, it was the only one where a release date was not attached which suggests the game is likely not coming out this side of March 31st 2013 when the financial year ends. Some have speculated a May 2013 release period which is more likely.
Take 2 plan to have a stream of the meeting available later today.
