After Rockstar announced Grand Theft Auto 5, fans have been trying to dig up any information possible on the title.
One fan could have found out some information on the main character. The fan found a currency match to what is on http://rockstargames.com for Grand Theft Auto 5.
It is from the first and only Native American featured U.S. paper currency in 1899, and it’s a $5 Indian Head Note that is extremely rare.
The usage of this currency could hint to the main character of GTA V being Native American.
They were also told from multiple sources that there will be more than one playable character for Grand Theft Auto 5. This is not new to the Grand Theft Auto series as gamers were allowed to play as Niko Bellic, Johnny Klebitz or Luis Lopez in GTA IV (if you purchased the DLC’s).
Rockstar Games has not commented on this story concerning the setting and playable characters for GTA V.
Following the shocking announcement of Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar Games this afternoon, GameStop Ireland has made an announcement of their own. They have published an expected GTA V release date of September 2, 2012 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
No information about GTA V has been announced by Rockstar Games except that an official trailer will be released on November 2.
Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter estimated development cost for Grand Theft Auto V to have already cost Take-Two $80 million to develop.
With an expected 2012 release date for GTA V, it is safe to assume that the game development cost will match that of GTA IV’s $100 million price tag.
Video game analyst Michael Pachter estimated that Grand Theft Auto V will sell “at least 18 million units.”
The analyst also hinted that if GTA V can hold up to its predecessors that it might reach 24 million units.
“We expect the next Grand Theft Auto to sell at least 18 million units, representing a 20% attach rate to the estimated 2011 year-end installed base of PS3 and Xbox 360 in the U.S. and Europe.”
“At this level, we estimate that Grand Theft Auto will generate at least $2.65/share in incremental EPS, making Take-Two’s forecast of ‘in excess’ of $2.00 per share in earnings during FY:13 easily attainable.
“Should the game sell 24 million units (in line with its historical attach rate), we expect contribution of more than $4.00 per share in incremental EPS. Importantly, the company has a history of providing conservative guidance, and without a GTA game in FY:13, we would not expect management to be so bold as to guide to earnings over $2.00.”
Take-Two Interactive reported their financial results today for the first quarter fiscal year 2012. Chief Executive Strauss Zelnick said the company has unannounced titles that we will hear about in the coming months. This further sparks rumors that Grand Theft Auto V will be announced in 2012.
Take-Two reported an expected net income of $2 per share in the fiscal year 2013. The last time the company achieved more than $2 per share was after the release of Grand Theft Auto IV.
