Will Nintendo fans finally get a main-series Grand Theft Auto?
Sterne Agee, a privately owned brokerage firm, has today given a statement concerning GTA 5 and it’s chances of arriving on Wii U…
“We believe releasing GTA V in F4Q instead of F3Q will provide four advantages to TTWO: 1) a less crowded window away from the big holiday releases such as Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed etc. Recall, the previous GTA title (GTA IV) was released on April 29, 2008, i.e., also away from the holiday period; 2) smoother earnings in FY14 especially if GTA V launches in the last month of FY13 (March 2013); in other words it will result in stronger GTA V catalog sales in FY14; 3) a larger installed base including the potential for launch on Nintendo Wii U; and 4) an extra couple of months to polish the game.” - Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia
It first emerged last year, when we were still calling the Wii U, Project Cafe, that Grand Theft Auto V would be released, but we’ll have to wait til E3 to find out for sure..
