E3 2010: Grand Theft Auto V, No Exclusive DLC?

Rockstar is still sitting on some nice sales of Grand Theft Auto IV and related DLC, bundles, and the like, but analysts expect that a new installment in the GTA legacy will be officially donned at next month's E3.
In a Game Informer interview, director of analyst services for the firm Electronic Entertainment Design and Research, Jesse Divinich, said, "I think we’re going to hear about another Grand Theft Auto. I think there won’t be any playable stuff. I think they’ll give you some type of teaser."

Divinich went further to predict that "another Grand Theft Auto" will be coming out in 2011. He specifically refrained from calling out Grand Theft Auto V by name, which make the prediction a bit like us saying that a new MySims game will be released next year.

However, Divinich went a bit more out on the line when he said he doesn't expect any exclusive DLC this time around.

"Microsoft paid a lot of money for exclusivity on the downloadable content for GTA IV, which unfortunately did little to move consoles for Microsoft," he said. And, "if Sony gets an exclusive deal on GTA V, it would do little to disrupt Microsoft's ability to move hardware."

Grand Theft Auto continues to be a powerhouse in the industry, however when Rockstar took a creative turn and released a highly stylized GTA game for the Nintendo DS, it proved to be a sales flop, even though it was critically acclaimed. If Rockstar does have an announcement next month, the more interesting one would be if it wasn't just the expected GTA V.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
