Fans have been speculating that the recent Grand Theft Auto V delay was connected to the launch of next-generation consoles, however Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has said that a “dual-generation launch” for GTA V is unlikely.

“There is not one gamer who is going to sit out of GTA V hoping that something that is going to come along down the road that’s better. It’s going to blow everyone away, and it’s going to be in the market in September,” he said in last night’s third quarter earnings call.

Rockstar recently stated that the only reason for Grand Theft Auto V‘s delay was to ensure that the game meets consumer expectations.

When asked about next-gen titles Zelnick replied, “We really can’t talk about next gen, because we’re not the ones who can talk about it first.” However, he did tease an “extensive pipeline of unannounced titles.”
