@victim, I think that's a possibility, but is there any evidence of that working out for them? I don't know much about the stock market, but I think the trailer spoke to fans more than shareholders. I just don't see the difference between a "coming soon" splash page and a trailer, when it comes to the business side of things, but that's just my opinion. I would assume they both garner the same amount of analyst speculation.

There's no evidence that they were doing it for the shareholders other than the massive drought of information and the predicted bump in shares for the company. It's my opinion, of course, but I can't see any other reason for announcing it before sweeping it under the rug.

Check out this!

Company Expects Non-GAAP Net Income Per Diluted Share of $2.00 to $2.25 for Fiscal Year 2013
Take-2 needed to announce GTA V when it did so that its shareholders could see exactly why the company was predicting an increase such as this after such a poor year; shareholders of Take-2 may have assumed the company were expecting Borderlands, Bioshock, NBA 2K13 and XCOM to perform to GTA standards. I'm not too read-up on the stock market either but basically you don't get that kind of hike in profits unless you expect something big coming.

Edit: Back-tracked to some old sources and found this. Take-Two share prices jumped 6% after GTA V's announcement.

If the trailer was to show why they predict an increase within the 2013 Fiscal Year, then V will need to be released well before March 2013 to bring in the profits before the Fiscal Year is over surely.

That's actually pretty interesting once I started to wrap my head around it. Take-2 is telling their shareholders they will bring in between $1.75 and $1.85 billion in revenue for the fiscal year ending March 31 2013. Maybe they'll get somewhere around $1 billion give or take from the other Take-2 titles combined, but that still leaves a huge amount that needs to be made. Like Lukeyy19 said, it seems GTA V will need to be released well before March 2013 to get revenue like that.
