Many gamers have thought of May as a great launch window for new Rockstar games, and considering certain teases hinted at GTA V getting a release date then, some of us were a little disappointed to see Max Payne 3 grab that slot instead. It seems that a certain gaming analyst also agrees that the lack of success for Max Payne this year has shocked them that GTA V had been postponed 5 months for that game, although this is expecting the game to land this year in October and not next year.
You can see a copy of the tweet by Michael Pachter below and he states Max Payne 3 has been “a flop“, which he finds it hard to believe that Grand Theft Auto V had been “put off” for this game. We would love to hear your thoughts on his comments, especially considering some of us have enjoyed Max Payne 3 but the wait for the GTA V trailer 2 is getting ridiculous. We’re happy to wait as long as it takes considering the enjoyment we’ve had from previous GTA games, although some gameplay would be nice Rockstar.
Do you think it’s fair to say that GTA 5 has been postponed for Max Payne 3, or is this just Pachter showing his frustration on Twitter? You can also read Take-Two’s CEO comments on annual games here, how Saints Row 4 wants to be big like the next Grand Theft Auto, and you can see we’re not the only ones that want the next trailer and game as soon as possible.
