After doing my daily rounds on gamespot, ign etc i found some new information. Its mostly speculative as its an analysts predictions and their usually wrong but its still information none the less.

QUOTE
Last Friday, Microsoft triumphantly announced that Grant Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned had "eclipsed first-day revenue for all previous downloadable content on Xbox Live." The software giant also played up the fact that the Xbox 360-exclusive expansion--the first of two due this year--was the "highest-reviewed downloadable content ever from Rockstar Games."

What Microsoft didn't do was offer any sales figures for The Lost and Damned, which won't be tracked by the retail-focused research firm the NPD Group. Today, Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter stepped into the breach, estimating that the $20 add-on has sold more than 1 million units to date. The game-industry cognoscenti went on to predict that it will go on to sell more than 2 million units by October 31, the end of Rockstar Games parent Take-Two Interactive's fiscal year.

Pachter went on to say that he considers Take-Two a "one-hit wonder." Luckily, that one hit is the Grand Theft Auto series, which the analyst is confident will haul the publisher's stock out of Wall Street's basement. Initially valued at $26 a share in Electronic Arts' rejected buyout offer last year, Take-Two stock was trading under $6 as of press time--still almost four times as much as General Motors, and nearly six times as much as Citigroup.

However, Pachter upgraded his rating on Take-Two today from "hold" to "buy," and set a target price of $10 for its stock. He pointed to Take-Two's recent signing of long-term contracts with Rockstar Games founders Dan and Sam Houser as ensuring a steady stream of top-quality GTA games for the foreseeable future. That's in addition to the all-new franchise the brothers are working on, possibly exclusively for the PlayStation 3.

"We acknowledge that this upgrade may appear early in light of the company's cautious outlook for near break-even results in fiscal year 2009," wrote Pachter, before making an industry-rattling prediction. "However, we believe that the company's share price fully reflects the cautious guidance, and disregards a potential GTA release in fiscal year 2010, as well as better performance in the future." (Emphasis added.)

Pachter went on to say it was a "reasonable expectation" for the next GTA to arrive sometime between November 1, 2009 and October 31, 2010. That means that the next game in the series could hit anytime: Although installments in the series traditionally shipped during October, last year Grand Theft Auto IV launched in April after months of delays. He also believes that it's likely the next batch of GTAIV DLC will arrive after Take-Two's current fiscal year ends in October.

I don't agree with that.

Even if it is just speculation, its a nice read, gets you hopeful.

Two things:

1. It's not GTA that's mentioned as a possible PS3 exclusive.
2. A new GTA game in 2009? COME ON, how retarded do you have to be to believe it's really feasible?

Besides, it's just a bunch of speculations.

I know what you mean. It would be nice if it was possible but its 99.9% unlikely as Rockstar would want to put all of their resources towards it which would mean the downloadable content would suffer because of it.

Plus i personally believe Rockstar are going to slow down on the releasing of sequels to Grand Theft Auto from now on as they can milk the current game for extra cash and less work with downloadable content.

Since 2nd (and final) DLC for GTA IV is announced for late 2009, next GTA game will have to wait till...2011 I guess. Unless of course we are gonna get treated to 'San Andreas Stories', then it might get a mid/late2010 release date.
