Why Grand Theft Auto V Will be Released in 2013

DualShock Nexus: There have been a lot of rumors indicating that Grand Theft Auto V will be released sometime in late 2012, while myself and many others want this to happen, a 2013 release for Grand Theft Auto V is more likely.

Gta 5 will be released in 2012 because they delayed bioshock in 2013(february).
With that move they got space for october/november/december gta 5 release without delays,and on 1st trailer we saw gta 5 is alrdy deeeep in development(cars,people,beache s,planes,mountains...),this is not only buildings(gta 4 1st trailer)this is almost done game!
So cut the cr*p with those speculation,check FACTS!!!

flavorbabies2371d ago

Stopped reading after "will be released in 2012 because of bioshock" bioshock has nothing to do with gta 5. They are not releasing it based on the release date of another game.

vyke32371d ago

They're both published by 2K. Releasing them close to each other would only reduce their sales.

WillGuitarGuy2371d ago

@Vyke3 Both published by 2K huh? Seems legit.

ElementX2371d ago

I doubt you'd see reduced sales because they're both from the same publisher. I want both games and I'll buy both games, even if they came out on the same day. I don't buy one game and play it to death before I purchase another, I like a variety of games and I play through a few at the same time.

Rumor has it that GTA V MIGHT release in:

October 2012
November 2012
Holiday 2012
March 2013
April 2013
September 2012
October 16th 2012
November 7th 2012
April 22nd 2013
January 31st 2013
February 21st 2013
October 11th 2012
Somewhere between November 5th and November 17th 2012

Who the fk cares. Tell me when it IS releasing. Until we know that, stfu. We don't need a new rumored GTA V release date article every damn day.

~not directed at whoever I replied to, just talking about these rumored release date articles in general~

Hopefully they wait till they can hire the guy to apply the ICeNhancer Mod to GTAV PC!!!

I'll be happy to wait for the Ice Mod before i buy GTAV!

Johnny_Cojones2371d ago

I really dig Hayssam's work, but I'm going to get this day one when it hits consoles. I'll just get it again when it hits PC several months later.

@Vyke3 Last time I checked Take Two Interactive published Rockstar games not 2K.

Treezy5042371d ago

@Cash I know Take Two owns both of them, but I'm disagreeing with the false statement that 2K publishes Rockstar games. 2K games is completely different from Rockstar and they don't publish Rockstar games Take Two does.

GraveLord2371d ago

Not really. We already got 2 huge games in November(Halo and Black Ops 2)

It would be stupid to release it anywhere near that. October is too close, and no one releases games in December. So September would be a good date if the game is ready.

koh2371d ago

The fact that Bioshock was delayed does not mean it is a fact that GTA is filling the void. Do I hope do? Of course, but Im not going to sit around calling my opinion a fact.

And the trailer looked to be mostly, if not entirely, cutscenes. So that doesn't mean much to me.

~Wrong post.~ So here's some off-topic nonsense:

Quick Chek now has hotdogs.. I ordered a chili-dog with cheese. Just a little FYI. Tasted damn good, but kinda expensive. ~$3.30 or so. Should be $2.00-$2.50.

When ever they decide to release it i will be fine with sooner-great i get to play it... later-damn i wish it was sooner but the antisapation im feeling is sweet x)

WillGuitarGuy2371d ago

I'd rather wait for 2013 than later this year. I would hate to see Rockstar pull a DICE (Battlefield 3) and rush the game.

CashColeTrain13372371d ago

I'd like all the information you know about the development if you can make a bold claim like that.

WillGuitarGuy2371d ago (Edited 2371d ago )

From what I've read devs like Patrick Bach wanted to wait a couple months to release Battlefield 3, but it was EA's decision to release the game when it was released to compete with Call Of Duty's sales. Look it up.

EDIT: Meant to put, pull a EA, not DICE. I noticed my morning derpiness.

CashColeTrain13372371d ago

Nah, I meant for Rockstar, I know BF3 was rushed, it's EA and I could totally see it.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2371d ago

It's gonna release next year because Agent is releasing this holiday season. And I'll gladly eat those words if I'm wrong.

koh2371d ago

For as little as we know about GTA V, we know much less about Agent. What in the world could convince you that Agent (without even a trailer) will be out in the next 6 months?

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2371d ago

Michael Pachter... that's what. Now normally, I'd take what he says with a grain of salt. He's usually right about 50% of the time. But I learned something a few weeks back. He actually meets with Sony, MS, and Nintendo before E3 to discuss what they'll be showing. So at this moment he knows most of what will be shown at all 3 conferences. When he was asked by Geoff Keighly what game he'd like to see at Sony's conference he said Agent. Not only that he said that he expects R* to show agent on Sony's stage and that he expects the game will be released by the end of the year. Now he said it as pure speculation, but I think he knows something. It's too bold of a claim. Especially, sense he talks to R* a lot.

koh2371d ago

Without looking into any of what you said, and accepting it as fact that Pachter did actually say all that he expects R* to show Agent at E3 (even while knowing that R* doesn't even attend the expo), that would still put Agent about 8 months behind GTAV. I can't even remember the last time a AAA game was first shown less than 6 months before its release. I'm not convinced that GTAV will come out this year at all, but I would put the odds at 10-to-1 that GTAV is released before Agent.

seanpitt232371d ago

Look I know someone who works at rockstar now I cannot give you the date its due out but I can tell you it's out in late 2012

kmanmx2371d ago

If I had a pound for everytime someone said they worked at Rockstar I would of made GTA5 my damn self.

koh2371d ago

Seems like every nameless person on the internet has intimate knowledge of R*'s inner workings... and I don't believe a single one of them.
