Mafia: Definitive Edition Interview

With only a couple of Grand Theft Auto V screenshots having found their way out of Rockstar, since last November's debut trailer, rabid GTA fans were hopeful of some more concrete launch information to surface in Take 2 Interactive's latest quarterly financials, but the publisher remains defiantly tight-lipped.

On the topic of GTA V in today's financial call, Take 2 executive Staruss Zelnick only promised that the game is still "in full development and showing substantial progress", and later in a Q&A on the topic reiterated that a release date is still TBA "We haven’t talked about a release date, so we can’t talk about the credibility of a release date we haven’t announced."

However, a couple of potential indicators did arise from the call that have provoked some more speculation on the game's launch ambitions. Firstly, that Take 2 is projecting revenues of $1.70 to $1.80 billion for their full current fiscal year, and 55% of that is expected to come from the Rockstar label. But with the underwhelming performance of Max Payne 3, and nothing else announced on the Rockstar slate except three helpings of Max Payne 3 DLC between now and March 2013, that leaves a gap that would need a pretty big hit to fill -- and Zelnick also mentioned that they are still talking about the other rumoured Rockstar title "Agent" yet either.

Secondly, the publisher still won't indicate what platforms GTA V is being developed for, which is not traditionally something they have withheld for past games, leading some to speculate that it's because of next-gen console intentions.

Obviously with new consoles not expected until at least the 2013 holiday season, and Take 2's fiscal year ending March 2013, these two speculations contradict each other. So all we can confirm at this point is that we're still in the dark on Grand Theft Auto V's release date.

Tell us what you think they have planned in the comments.
