GTA 5 release date remains absent from Take-Two line-up

Rockstar's next crime opus likely to launch after March 2013

Grand Theft Auto V may not be released in the current fiscal year, it has emerged, as its publisher Take-Two omitted the project from its release schedule


Addressing investors in a financial year statement, a representative for the New York based publisher said that GTA 5 "is in full development and making substantial progress".

However, no GTA V release date was mentioned when executives listed projects for the fiscal year, including Max Payne 3 downloadable content, Borderlands 2 and Bioshock Infinite.

It means the game's release date is likely going to be targeted beyond March 2013.

"We just haven't talked about a release date," said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.

"We're blessed to be working with Rockstar," he added.
