Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has suggested Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V will release on October 23rd, 2012, as well as predicting a pre-E3 showing for the game.

Speaking on the latest episode of Pach-Attack on GameTrailers TV, the analyst said Rockstar would unveil Grand Theft Auto V's details a day before E3 begins.

Mentioning the studio's non-involvement during E3 in recent years, Pachter stated, "They’ve outgrown the show. I think they’re way too cool to go."

"My read on those guys is they like stealing the thunder from everything else. So if I had to bet, I’d say you’d get an announcement on GTA V the day before E3 starts, that’d be Monday, June 4. they don’t show up and that’s all anybody can do is talk about GTA V at the show," continued the analyst.

In regards to the long-awaited release date confirmation by Rockstar for GTA V, Pachter suggests it'll see an October 23rd release. The developer's parent company, Take-Two, will be releasing BioShock Infinite just a few days before his predicted date. While it seems unlikely, his words do hold credence if a character animator's CV were to be believed - it also pegged GTA V for an October release this year.

Finally, Pachter touted Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite as "BioShock 2", as well as saying Rockstar "don't care about the 2K game".
