Release Date Delays Suggest PS4 Launch Likely GTA 5
Few days ago Rockstar Games has announced Grand Theft Auto V will push back for a September release according to CVG Cowen & Company , Doug Creutz analyze and make a statement that Rockstar might have been delaying their title for PS4? (Maybe , not confirmed though)
“In and of itself, the delay of the game from FQ1 to FQ2 would not normally mean any significant change to expected FY14 financial results- Was made a statement by Creutz
“However there is an issue in that we expect the next generation of Xbox and/or PlayStation consoles to launch in the December quarter. We think the closer proximity of GTA V to the next cycle could, at the margin, impact lifetime sales of the title, though we believe that a title of GTA’s stature will still be a major seller regardless”
“We think there also could be some impact on the legs of likely GTA V downloadable content as the next-gen installed base increases through 2014. However, we suspect Take-Two may have plans to eventually publish GTA V on the next set of consoles in some form to offset this.”
There’s a possibility GTA 5 delays could hit next-gen consoles despite the fact Sony teased The future of Playstation, which held the PS4 release date. Whilst Creutz suggested this.
