Grand Theft Auto 5 release in 2012 - analyst

Bioshock: Infinite to provide competition

Grand Theft Auto V will release in Take Two's 2012 fiscal year, which runs from April 2012 to March 2013, according to analysts.

Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey said that his prediction is "likely" and put sales figures of 16 million plus in terms of copies and over $750 million when it comes to the green stuff.


He's also predicted that the same period will see the release of Bioshock: Infinite, but doesn't see the sky-based title doing nearly the same numbers as GTA.

He estimates Infinite will sell over 4 million copies and generate $182 million in sales.

As far as Take-Two's next fiscal year is concerned, Hickey is expecting the release of L.A Noire and Max Payne 3, which will tide the company over.

Max Payne 3 was delayed until 2011 in June and we're just starting to get the first real details of L.A Noire.
