Analyst: No GTA V until 2012 at the earliest

Predicts it will take 750 million USD

Mike Hickey, analyst with the Janco Partners reckons that Rockstar will not bring a new Grand Theft Auto game out until 2012.

Hickey told Gamespot recently that the endlessly popular sandbox crime series will not see another installment until 2012 at the earliest.

He added a very optimistic projection for the sales figures for GTA V somewhere in the region of 750 million USD.

In part this will be due to Rockstar releasing Max Payne 3 and LA Noire next year and their parent, Take-Two releasing the long-overdue Duke Nukem Forever.
