Analyst says Rockstar may be working on five new games

It's starting to sound like world famous developmer/publisher Rockstar Games isn't resting on the success of its recent hits. In fact, one analyst believes they may be currently working on five separate projects.

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter wrote in a post-E3 note that he believes each of Rockstar's five studios have their own game in the works. Which, presumably, includes Grand Theft Auto V. 

He also said that due to their parent company's revenue expectations, we can expect one of these titles to launch by the end of their fiscal year in March 2013. Given that the only game announced yet is GTAV, that gives us a pretty good idea of when to expect its release. 

As for what the other titles might be? We haven't a clue. However, given the success of Red Dead Redemption in 2010, you can bet your socks they're working on a follow up. One of the other titles may also be the oft-delayed, potentially next-gen title, Agent.

    much as I like Pachter, his frequent predictions regarding Rockstar are getting really old

    Michael Pachter did also lay his entire reputation, such as it is, on the fact that Rockstar would announce GTAV's release date before 12pm yesterday.

    .........Jesus fucking Christ. Seriously man I'm assuming you have access to the internet since you are posting this idiotic answer so next time could you bother to do a little fact checking before you spew out garbage like this? If this sounds harsh deal with it. I have seen this EXACT same reply other other articles from people "correcting" others who want a RD prequel. God damn kids are getting lazy these days.
