GameStop not expecting GTA V in 2012

Financial forecast misses out GTA V for US retailer

It's not just industry analysts that are playing down any talk that Grand Theft Auto V arriving this year.

US retail giant GameStop are also not expecting Rockstar's next big entry in the GTA series this side of Christmas.

In their forecast for this year the Take-Two titles they are expecting Borderlands 2 and Max Payne 3 to make the biggest splash alongside the likes of Halo 4 and Assassin's Creed III but there was no mention of GTA V at all.

President of GameStop, Tony Bartel said, "In terms of GTA V, we don't have followed information that we can share at this point so we have not put that into our forecast. We would adjust our estimate if we had knowledge that GTA was coming out [in 2012]."
