The game's recent announcement will ensure a long enough time for marketing into next year, according to Industry Gamers.
"We believe Rockstar Games is modelling a four-to-six-month marketing window for their upcoming GTA V release, suggesting a summer '12 launch period," said National Alliance Capital Markets analyst Mike Hickey.
Wedbush Securities' Michael Pachter agreed, saying that Rockstar Games would want to "steal everyone's attention" with a June release before next year's E3 expo.
EEDAR's Jesse Divnich added that the trailer and announcement this month was to detract from the current busy release season.
"Enjoy your triple-A packed holiday, but remember who's your daddy," he said. "Rockstar North is one of the most talented developers in our industry. When they speak, everyone listens... Rockstar does what they want and when they want to."
Grand Theft Auto V's first trailer debuted yesterday, confirming it will be set in Los Angeles and will feature planes, mountainous environments and poverty as an ongoing theme.
No release date or platforms have yet to be announced.
