GTA V next year, says Pachter

To use GTA IV engines, claims analyst

Self-made superstar analyst Michael Pachter has pointed his crystal ball in Rockstar's direction, and claimed that the next Grand Theft Auto is on target for next year.

"Management declined to state when the game will launch, but has confirmed to us that the game is in development, has been for over a year, and is using the same game 'engines' as the last version." Pachter said.

"Management also told us that the team at Rockstar North is highly motivated to get the game out, and that the team understands that its highest payday will come from working on GTA instead of any other game," he continued.

"When we do the simple math, we conclude that the next instalment is likely to be completed by some time in 2010, although given the frequency of game delays, it is not clear that it will necessarily come before October 31, 2010," he said.

Insider information or not, it's probably a very educated guess that there's a new GTA in development, it'll probably use all the tech Rockstar's heavily invested in, and it'll be out within two to three years of the last one.
