As revealed in our previous article, today Rockstar Games announced that the much-anticipated “GTA 5” has been delayed. Originally scheduled to be released in the spring of 2013, “GTA 5” has been pushed back until September. In response to this, it has been revealed that the publishing company for “GTA 5” has begun to see decreases in share price.
As revealed through an article posted by Gamasutra yesterday, Take-Two Interactive's share price has fallen a total of 12% today. This is a direct response to the announcement of the delay of “GTA 5,” as it has been pushed back a total of four months from the original release that was announced for the game.
As brought up by Gamasutra, “GTA 5” will now face a greater amount of competition as it will compete directly with major titles that release during the latter part of the year. But, since this is “GTA 5,” it would not be surprising if this competition did not affect the sales numbers of this title at all.
