According to Colin Sebastian, a senior research analyst at Baird, Rockstar‘s GTA V is less likely to launch before the end of March 2013.

Speaking with Gamespot, Sebastian said, “By no means am I convinced that it will miss March, but there are a couple of factors to consider. One, we haven’t heard anything definitive from the company on release timing.”

“Second, retailers typically would want 4-6 months lead time to prepare for a launch as large as GTA, and from [what] I understand they haven’t heard anything. Third, Rockstar rightly prioritizes game quality over release date, and this dynamic could shift timing.”

Sebastian believes that GTA V will be hit and it will ship 12-14 million units during its first three months. In February, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said ‘we are very hard at work on the game.’
