GTA 5 delays yet another title

Having already learned that GTA 5 is having an affect on the release of certain games it comes as no surprise that another title will be delayed because of Rockstar’s upcoming game. Anarchy Reigns is the latest victim because the creators said that they do not wish to release the title so close to the release of Grand Theft Auto V, which will come as a disappointment to fans.

Bioshock Infinite is part of 2K Games, a subsidiary of
Take-Two,so they still get money from both Infinite and V.

There are two series that no one wants to release next to, Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto!

You will lose sells releasing next to these two Behemoths.

Your game will not get any good ad time, hype, or free press cause everyone will be talking about COD or GTA 1 month prior and 2 months after release.

GTAV and CODBO2 both look to release in November so your looking at a possible 40 million units sold between two games that month.
So pubs are smart to move new I.P.s and B tier games away from these Beast.

I'd choose GTA over COD anyday.

Not all games are being delayed because of GTA...assuming so is just stupid. I know for a fact BioShock wasn't because of GTA.

" “come to realize that some specific tweaks and improvements will make Infinite into something even more extraordinary” and that the delay will give the development team "the time they need.” "

That's PR talk dude.

Take 2 delayed BIOSHOCK in order to make room for GTA5 for Christmas.

Why wouldn't they?

GTA is many times more popular than Bioshock series.

No, they did it because the game needs a lot of work. Part of the reason the delay was approved by the publisher was because of GTA.

Wait GTA5 is coming out this year? Where is your proof?

THATS RIGHT.... NO ONE KNOWS WHEN GTA5 IS COMING OUT, NO ONE. SO HOW CAN A GAME DELAY ITS SELF WITHOUT KNOWING THE DATE OF THE GAME THAT THEY ARE SCARED WILL REDUCE THEIR SALES IS COMING OUT?

Don't get me wrong, Im excited for GTA5, but im sick of people saying the game is coming out this year, sick of people thinking R* hid the release date in Max Payne 3... etc

WE DO NOT HAVE A RELEASE DATE! LET ROCKSTAR COME OUT AND TELL US WHEN THEIR GAME IS COMING OUT!

I just dont think people are moving all of these games just because of GTA, the holiday schedule is already packed. Look at November already:

Metal Gear Solid Rising 02 Nov 2012

Halo 4 06 Nov 2012

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 13 Nov 2012

Grand Theft Auto 5 ??

Hitman: Absolution 20 Nov 2012

Resident Evil 6 Nov 2012

@Kamikaze8...

Add

Assassin's Creed III
Epic Mickey 2
Medal of Honor
James Bond Legends
Marvel Avengers

All in October

And in September...

Borderlands 2
Zone of Enders HD
Far Cry 3
Tekken Tag Tournament

From September through November there are a whack of great games even with the release of GTA V.

It's mostly due to blops 2.
Gta5 will sell well....no where close to blops 2 sadly.

WeskerChildReborned1943d ago

You may never know. Anyone who chooses COD over GTA, i would just do a face palm.

Hicken1943d ago

I think I'd rather play Anarchy Reigns than GTA5, so this is a little bothersome.
