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.
