It's one of the most buzzed about questions in the video game world: When will Grand Theft Auto V hit stores?
The hugely anticipated sequel to one of video gaming's best-selling franchises was first announced by developer Rockstar Games last November. Fans know that it will be another huge open-world game and that it will take place in a thinly veiled version of Los Angeles, much like 2008's Grand Theft Auto IV took place in a virtual replica of New York City.
Rockstar's parent company, Take-Two Interactive Software, has yet to announce a release date for the game, but one analyst believes that he has found evidence on that score.
Michael Pachter, who closely follows the video game business for Wedbush Securities, said Take-Two's financial projections indicate that Grand Theft Auto V will be released by next March, the end of the New York-based video game publisher's fiscal year.
