Grand Theft Auto V to Be Launched in 2012
Well, it has emerged that the next version in the Grand Theft Auto series, the fifth one to be more precise, will be released in 2012 and, just like the preceding installments, it is expected to generate very big earnings to the parent company.
The rumor was released by Mike Hickey from Janco Partners who said that Grand Theft Auto V will be launched in the fiscal year between April 2012 and March 2013, with estimates pointing to - hold your breath, drum beats please! - 16 million units to be sold in the first months of availability. Translate this into profit and you get $750 million to be transferred into Take-Two's accounts.
As for the game per se, details are pretty limited for the time being, but earlier speculation pointed that GTA V will be set in Los Angeles or, as fans of the game call it, Los Santos. Furthermore, sources familiar with the matter explained that Rockstar is considering regions around Hollywood which is actually a sign that Los Angeles might be indeed the location picked to host the Grand Theft Auto V action.
More details will surely surface in the months to come, so we'll keep you posted.
