There is still hope: "GTA V" will be released in 2012 according to Pachter

The date of release of "GTA V" is planned for 2012, according to estimates by Michael Pachter, the analyst world's most famous gamer. We recall that yesterday, he was saying exactly the opposite, that in view of the last conference of Take-Two, everything pointed to 2013. (Grand Theft Auto V, Michael Pachter, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 65

I have a strong feeling that GTA 5 will not come out this year. I mean we've only seen like one trailer!
WeskerChildReborned  +   1284d ago
One trailer and 2 screenshots to be exact. Oh yea and also all those ridiculous rumors.
onyoursistersback  +   1284d ago
that and where in are 8th month...this year is over in 120 days.
HebrewHammer  +   1284d ago
Why can't I get paid to make absurd projections like Michael Pachter?

It'll be 2013. How stupid.
HammadTheBeast  +   1284d ago
I should be paid double to make somewhat reasonable predictions. Dont worry, you can still be my secretary.
HebrewHammer  +   1284d ago
I'm in!
bobshi  +   1283d ago
It is funny isn't it. Every time he says something, everyone disagrees with him.

And yet every GTA fan wants this game yesterday.

And now he is saying that it may come sooner than you think, you would expect everyone to go 'at last the man is right!'

I guess that shows that people hate Pachter more than that want GTA to be in their hands.
HebrewHammer  +   1283d ago
Or we hate what Pachter seems to be synonymous with: False Hope.
xflo360  +   1284d ago
well if patcher says 2012 thats confirmed it for 2013 then! lol

Now that's thinking Outside of the Box.
xflo360  +   1284d ago
In all seriousness though, i really hope we see it this year. loves me a bit of gta!
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1283d ago
lol @ HammadTheOne


I would love for GTA5 to come out this year, but it just doesn't seem likely. We all know it isn't coming out September(only 1 month away), October(2 months away, we would know by now if it was coming out in Oct.) or December(to late in the year to release a HUGE game like GTA).

November of this year is the only month that makes any amount of sense to release the game this year and I just don't see that happening unfortunately.

Haha although i would like for Rockstar to announce a 2012 release date, i don't think it'll happen and best guess for me would be 2013.
Puddlejumper75  +   1284d ago
Was about to say the same thing. If this guy says it the opposite will happen.

The only people who buy the crap this guy spews are Sony fans because he is always proclaiming doom for anything Nintendo.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1284d ago
Lets say it is true that Sony fans want doom for Nintendo. Why would Sony fans agree with patcher proclaiming doom for anything Nintendo when the opposite he says turns out to be true? So in your scenario Sony fans should actually hate his guts and Nintendo fans should be relieved.
Puddlejumper75  +   1284d ago
Yeah that would be true but you are also talking about the dumbest group of people on the planet.

They still believe after 8 years that nobody could produce a better chip than the Cell.
It doesnt matter that he is always wrong as long as he says what they want to hear.He knows his fan base. He might be wrong but I never said he was stupid.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1284d ago
Ok, I see. You have personal issues with Sony fans.

"According to Pachter"

Stops reading
WeskerChildReborned  +   1284d ago
I doubt it will come out this year. It would be cool if it did but their is barely any info on the game and we are in August.
ame22  +   1284d ago
So you want TAKE TWO to not talk about the game for a almost a year and just release the game sometime this holiday? Pachter, you are truly full of surprises.
AgreeFairy  +   1284d ago
That's what Rockstar always does. They reveal a game, show off a bit of footage, stay quiet for months, and then a month before they release the game they push out a lot of marketing for it as well as tons of videos explaining the campaign & multiplayer.
ame22  +   1284d ago
Not when the holidays are just around the corner. Even someone as big as R* would need to stretch their legs a little and by looking at their history, it's a no no. Rockstar always owned the April-May mark and I very much doubt they would want to change that with GTA5 either. GTA is not something that comes by everyday and according to Take Two's post earnings they aren't exactly in a good spot so I think they'd be far more delicate with a game that would ultimately be their savior.

GamerElite  +   1284d ago
Pachter needs to patch his mouth up. He talks too much
LOGICWINS  +   1284d ago
Actually Pachter talks just as much as any of us. The situation is that sites (desperate for hits) take any sentence he spouts and creates an article out of it...100% out of Pachter's control. If the media followed you around everyday and posted every prediction you made on the'd "appear" like you talk too much as well.
Draven71  +   1284d ago
I believe that GTAV will be out in May 2013. Lately, they seem to be having solid success in that month for the last three years. This year was Max Payne 3, last year was LA Noire, the year before that was Red Dead Redemption. There seems to be no need to stray from their successful strategy.
Psychotica  +   1284d ago
Seems like R* would be doing a lot more marketing and advertising if it was coming out before Christmas.
Ramas  +   1284d ago
no dear patcher not a chance, gta 5 will be released in spring 2013 IF everything will go like planned, if not then summer or autumn of 2013.
modesign  +   1284d ago
patcher must of been hitting the bottle today
Slysi  +   1284d ago
Patcher you need to come back down to planet earth, not a chance this will be between April and may next year
WeskerChildReborned  +   1283d ago
We can't really say it won't happen. I doubt it but anything is possible basically. The only reason he is saying November is cause of that alleged former R* employee who said that it was gonna.
Adolph Fitler  +   1284d ago
I would say GTA5 will be announced for Xmas 2013 for the next gen Xbox & PS4.
This is the most logical choice for the game, & Rockstar really don't need to release the game for this gens consoles.
Rockstar should in fact just honour there deal with Sony & PS3 owners by getting Agent finished & released, as PS3 owners like myself are owed this game, just as it was announced & promised by Rockstar. MS got there $50mills worth of 6month exclusive dlc paks, so now it's Sony & it's PS3 owners turn.

Forget GTA5 this gen. Give us Agent. We have GTA4, RDR & the awesome Max Payne reboot, now give us Agent & make it as awesome (if not better) as those 3.
If not, at least let us know what the hell is happening, please. I mean, who do Rockstar think they are?????......Team Ico or something.
Hanif-876  +   1284d ago
Thats a laugh. Well, the most logical thing to do is to release GTA V on current generation consoles because the install base is high. Also, there more potential buyers and they gotta put a smile on the investors faces.
Adolph Fitler  +   1284d ago

Oh god, another Ninty fangirl, who believes the world is out for Ninty's blood. Wake up you idiotic nerd. Rack your little head back 6 years & lookup who all these clowns like Patcher were predicting doom for, hell, just look up every gaming headline 6,5,4 years ago & you'll find nothing but Sony hate. The mass media had it out for Sony like nothing I have ever seen before. It was the worst case of biased, hate, media bash-up EVER. I've never seen a media & fanboy beat up against a company like it, & thats against ANY company, not just game & console companies. Not even James Hardy copped this much flack. It was, hell even still is ridiculous, & an embarassment to our industry how bad & unjustified a beating Sony copped.....

So STFU about some internet knob named Patcher & a few Sony fanboys, giving Nintendo grief...get over it, as every 1 of the console companies will suffer the same crap. Just prey your beloved company is never avalanched & sh1t on for really no reason, like Sony was for 3 or so years straight from 2005-2006 onwards. Basically, all the so called reasons for Sony's bashings back then, were all reasons EVERY console manufacturer in history were guilty of doing & are still doing. Reason like hyping, showing projected game footage (the Killzone 2 projected footage), taking inspiration from other games & ideas, saying stupid things in press conferences such as Kaz's infamous lines that a I need not hear again, etc, etc.

So Nintendo have copped nothing, & these Sony fanboys you claim wish doom & gloom on Ninty, are no worse fanboys than you. Fanboys are all the same mate, your one, & your no different to the rest, other than a different set of letters arranged to spell Nintendo. Let go, & just enjoy the games. When you do, you'll realize both 360 & PS3 have really awesome games, & Nintendo really do suck & deserve to die.....die nintendo die....Now, "lets go get some lunch Mr Patcher".
InsaneGam3r  +   1284d ago
No. we will not see GTA V in 2012 because T2 didnt give us any info about the game we will be hearing news about GTA V late 2012 or JAN 2013.
shaneTsung  +   1284d ago
I'm as hardcore as it gets people GTA 5 info overload in September, TRUST ME
HelloHowAreYou  +   1284d ago
Lol another educated guess by patcher for a date he is wrong on.
DaDroidKing  +   1284d ago
Even tho im REALLY!!! Looking forward to GTAV me personally I really wouldn't care if it came out this year or not cause I would be pre occupied with a few new titles coming out this fall
seanpitt23  +   1284d ago
"Good Luck".
Emilio_Estevez  +   1283d ago
The GTA rumors never stop flying from this site.

GTA will kill in sales no matter when it comes out. They could tell us it comes out next week and it would get crazy sales, or next year and the same thing will happen.

'according to Pachter'

Talk about give it the kiss of death. I wanted it to be released in 2012, but now the man with the crappy crystal ball has spoken and ruined it.
