Post Analyst: 2 million Lost and Damned, next GTA by Nov. '10 (Gamespot)



Wedbush Morgan's Michael Pachter expects first Grand Theft Auto IV DLC to go double-platinum by October 31; raises rating on Take-Two stock, believes new full game due during publisher's next fiscal year.

Last Friday, Microsoft triumphantly announced that Grant Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned had as "eclipsed first-day revenue for all previous downloadable content on Xbox Live." The software giant also played up the fact the Xbox 360-exclusive expansion--the first of two due this year--was the "highest reviewed downloadable content ever from Rockstar Games."

What Microsoft didn't do was offer any sales figures for The Lost and Damned, which won't be tracked by the retail-focused research firm the NPD Group. Today, Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pacther stepped into the breach, estimating that the $20 add-on has sold over 1 million units to date. The game-industry cognoscenti went on to predict that it will go on to sell over 2 million units by October 31, the end of Rockstar Games parent Take-Two Interactive's fiscal year.

Pachter went on to say that he considers Take-Two a "one hit wonder." Luckily, that one hit is the Grand Theft Auto series, which the analyst is confident will haul the publisher's stock out of Wall Street's basement. Initially valued at $26 a share in Electronic Arts' rejected buyout offer last year, Take-Two stock was trading under $6 as of press time--still almost four times as much as General Motors, and nearly six times as much as Citigroup.

Pachter, however, today upgraded his rating on Take-Two from "hold" to "buy", and set a target price of $10 for its stock. He pointed to Take-Two's recent signing of long-term contracts with Rockstar Games founders Dan and Sam Houser ensures a steady stream of top-quality GTA games for the foreseeable future. That's in addition to the all-new franchise the brothers are working on, possibly exclusively for the PlayStation 3.

"We acknowledge that this upgrade may appear early in light of the company’s cautious outlook for near break-even results in fiscal year 2009," wrote Pachter, before making a industry-rattling prediction. "However, we believe that the company’s share price fully reflects the cautious guidance, and disregards a potential GTA release in fiscal year 2010, as well as better performance in the future." (Emphasis added.)

Pachter went on to say it was a "reasonable expectation" for the next GTA to arrive sometime between November 1, 2009 and October 31, 2010. That means the next game in the series could hit anytime: Although installments in the series traditionally shipped during October, last year Grand Theft Auto IV launched in April following months of delays. He also believes that it's likely the next batch of GTAIV DLC will arrive after Take-Two's current fiscal year ends in October.

Next GTA by Nov 10' sorry but that not going to happen*

That's some interesting news...

Hopefully they'll create some new, interesting missions for the next GTA. I dunno about you guys, but I think that a lot of the missions in the past GTA games, like SA and GTA 4, have been copies of other missions in Vice City and GTA 3.

Patcher's a DICK, 9 out of 10 times anything he says is usually bullshit and turns out false and it annoys me that this prick gets paid to just do guess work when his guesses rarely happen.
