Speaking after the release of its latest financial figures last night, Take-Two refused to commit to a 2012 release for Grand Theft Auto V.
The official date simply remains TBA. And the game wasn't included in the publisher's self-labelled strongest ever line-up” for fiscal 2012 alongside the likes of BioShock Infinite, Spec Ops: The Line and Borderlands 2.
Going by past patterns, the timing of Rockstar's reveal would point to a late 2012 release. And should the publisher wait much beyond that it might risk being caught up in the building hype for the next generation of machines.
Nor have we yet been given any indication of what formats the game will be released on. Presumably Xbox 360, PS3 and PC are a given. But could we also see a 3DS or Wii U version? And don't rule out a simultaneous iOS release, either.
