Grand Theft Auto not an annual title

Take-Two relaxed about status of IP

Speaking at the announcement of their fourth-quarter financial results, Take-Two have said that Grand Theft Auto is not best delivered as a yearly release.

Presumably some investors in the game maker would like to see annual GTA games further boost revenues at the firm - but DLC is instead key.

Apparently, Take-Two believe the series is strong enough on its own, and that ongoing GTA IV stories delivered in DLC form are proving profitable.

Take-Two wouldn't comment on further on a new Grand Theft Auto title per se, although rumours abound that the next in the series (number five?) won't be unleashed until 2011. More shortly.

We need to talk... about 'gamers'
Because that term has a much wider definition than it used to.
