GameStop not expecting GTA5 this year

US retail giant leaves Rockstar title out of forecasts

America's biggest video game retail chain, GameStop, isn't expecting Grand Theft Auto 5 to launch in 2012. Boo!


President Tony Bartel said that while the company's 2012 forecasts took into consideration a number of major upcoming titles, naming games such as Borderlands 2, Halo 4, Assassin's Creed III, Resident Evil 6, Max Payne 3 and the new Call of Duty game, those forecasts did not include GTAV.

"In terms of GTAV, we don't have followed information that we can share at this point so we have not put that into our forecast. We would adjust our estimate if we had knowledge that GTA was coming out [in 2012]," he told investors during an earnings call today.

In other GTA-related news, Rockstar CEO Dan Houser revealed today that 'Crews' created in the multiplayer mode of Max Payne 3 will be transferable to GTA5's multiplayer.
