Idk, apparently some place confirms it will release this year but idk, GTA doesn't even need advertising to sell big really.
knifefight  +   946d ago
Yeah, let us all rest on the rock-solid assurance of "some place."

I'll just tune into the 11:00 news tonight and see what stories have been confirmed by "some guy" too.
Nate-Dog  +   946d ago
It's almost September and we've only had one trailer of the game and little info on it, I don't see why so many people still see it coming out before 2013.
WeskerChildReborned  +   946d ago
True but a game like GTA doesn't need alot of exposure to sell millions. Not trying to overrate it or anything. But i don't think Rockstar would even take the risk to do it.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   946d ago
If it were to come out this year it'd be November and seeing as we are almost 2 months away from November, GTA5 coming out this year just doesn't likely at all.
PhantomT1412  +   946d ago
Still, it would be too risky not to advertize more than this if it's coming out this year.
youndamie  +   946d ago
I would prefer if it came out in 2013 and launch on PS4 and Nextbox so graphically it can be even greater than if it launched of Ps3 and 360
BitbyDeath  +   946d ago
Wii U is coming out this year and is in the same boat
Nate-Dog  +   946d ago
Well that's a console, and one which has had large exposure already. I don't see that coming out this year either to be honest but that's just me.
dubt72  +   946d ago
There's no way that people honestly think this is coming out in 2012, right?
knifefight  +   946d ago
You'd be amazed how quick people are to cling to the words of a retailer.
Even despite how many times that's been bogus.

this year? i dont think so, maybe november 2013
torchic  +   946d ago
okay no..

1st half 2013 for sure.
Hellsvacancy  +   946d ago
Like March/April 2013
Kran  +   946d ago
Of course it isn't coming out this year.


Its kind of too late to say "its coming out November"

It'd be like slapping someone in the face. Big release like this? Too early to release within the next few months. I'm gonna guess a May release date because for the past few years, Rockstar have aimed for May.

a411411  +   946d ago
Hmm considering "Rockstar Games" has 80 Employees i cant really say much, but the real question is do they want to compete with COD considering this will be a tough decision for some people, but can also serve as a nice Christmas present for the following month.

Here's the link for how many employers work at Rockstar Games

thebudgetgamer  +   946d ago
Is that as a whole or the Rockstar North team?
HammadTheBeast  +   946d ago
Probably only one team. If you have seen Rockstar, they have lots of branches, probably with anywhere from 40-90 in each branch.
allyc4t  +   946d ago
I can't believe people are still posting stupid release stories about GTAV. All it takes is a tiny bit of research and some common sense to realize that it's NOT coming out this year.
Half-Mafia  +   946d ago
People also think its a next gen game aswell. But its common sense that R* wants to sell alot and make alot of money, so its going to coming out on the PS3 & 360 that have an install base of over 130m compared to the PS4 & 720 that have an install base of 0m.
Emilio_Estevez  +   946d ago
I tried to stop it, b/c it's obviously non-sense, but people approved it anyway.

Don't really how an anonymous retailer would know know anything more than anyone else. They get dates before regular folks, but they don't have sh!t until they get a date. So this amounts to a hill of beans.
Nocturne147  +   946d ago
Your wife is safe, i knew it not coming out this year.
NBT91  +   946d ago
RockStar should release it this year now, patch the bugs later, I just want to see this guys reaction when he bets his wife and looses lol

He doesnt have a wife really, hes a bum raider.

Wedding Singer. LoL. Love that movie.

I hope GTA Is out by this Christmas. I need me some Los Santos. Haha
3-4-5  +   946d ago
Right before Christmas is the only time I could see them releasing the game.

It would be far enough away from Cod and Halo that people still might have some money left over for GTA V.

would be a nice X-mas though.
darren_poolies  +   946d ago
I've said this many times, it is not coming out this year.
NYC_Gamer  +   946d ago
It's coming out next year

Why all the talk about when this game is gonna come out, when a game that is probably going to be better, is already out in "Sleeping Dogs". wake up people

VicodinViking  +   946d ago

Go ahead and play an inferior sandbox game, the rest of us will enjoy the depth of GTA V.
Theangrybogan  +   946d ago
Complete fail. Both ya's!

Why pick sides? Sleeping dogs now, GTAV later.
VicodinViking  +   944d ago

Sleeping Dogs isn't worth the 60$ they're asking for when you're severely limited in things that you can do.

But, you go ahead and waste your cash an on inferior product like Sleeping Dogs.
HammadTheBeast  +   946d ago

Aww, isnt that cute. Siding with the underdog to make yourself feel cool.
PersonMan  +   946d ago
Sleeping dogs didn't impress me. It doesn't have that Rockstar feel to it. Looks cartoony too.
MeatAbstract  +   946d ago
It's next year!

I know people say "GTA V doesn't need to be advertised, everyone knows about it anyway" which is silly, Rockstar will advertise the shit out of this game. They've put too much time and effort into the game to say "Yeeaahhh just release in November with no build up, no mass market hype (remember, not everyone follows the gaming community) in the time when the market is crowded with new releases anyway, sounds like a good idea that!"

April/May next year.
matgrowcott  +   946d ago
I've seen more than a few "proper" media stories about first the trailer and then fan hype build up. That doesn't mean, of course, that it's coming this year, but that more than people on the internet know that GTA V is on its way.

I can see a minimalist marketing scheme (nothing and then a month or two of massive hype so nobody has chance to get bored/question their undying loyalty to the brand) and an earlier than expected release date, although I wouldn't even try to put a month on it.
HammadTheBeast  +   946d ago
If you've been following N4G, you would see that the mere mention of GTA V news gets into the top new ranking. Honestly, I think the hype is covered. A couple more trailers, maybe some in game live stream, an ad or two in TV, website takeovers, and they can guarantee a million sales in a week or two,
FredEffinChopin  +   946d ago
"Hey, GTA stories get heat on N4G, let's hold off on those bus stop ads, billboards, radio & TV commercials, and website ads guys!"

No. Yes, they have a pre-installed buzz for the game, but it doesn't mean hype is "covered" by any means. I didn't hear about Chinatown Wars on N4G, I first knew of it when there was a gigantic mural painted for it on the side of a building... in Chinatown.

You forgot GTA IV- April 29th 2008
DARK WITNESS  +   946d ago
I think it's also worth noting that with MP3 and Red Dead, they were both delayed from their original dates and R* said hardly anything about those games until at least 2 to 3 months in.

All the heavy marketing and gameplay etc didn't show up until like late feb, march and april.

I think we will get the few images here and there but the big marketing and media reveals will prob start from Jan, Feb next year.
FredEffinChopin  +   946d ago
To notice a pattern that exists (only when you selectively ignore all their other releases that come out on other dates), and then to use that pattern as a basis to assume that a gaming company has secretly adhered to a release-dating-convention and will never deviate from it? Yeah, you're right, it doesn't take a genius.

It's just a hot release time for games. So is Fall/Winter. If they aren't releasing in Spring they're releasing in Fall/Winter. If it's not ready by Spring it'll be released in the Fall.
xXFrostXx  +   945d ago
I understand where your coming from man but I'm just going off recent data from this gen. I understand the delays and all but when you consider the fact that there is not much info out on the game as well as rockstar's recent release schedule I would have to put my money on May again. You could be right and trust me I would love to be wrong (super excited about the game)but I just don't see it happening. Well just have to wait and see.

GTA IV was originally planned for release on October 16th, 2007 in USA and Europe, however on August 2nd, 2007, R* announced that the game would be delayed until the 2nd quarter of 2008. The game was released for the PS3 and 360 worldwide on April 29th, 2008...I think we will see GTA V around same time next year. I'm thinking abit earlier tho maybe February for some reason. It would be a nice birthday present for me anyway :)

I pretty much agree with this. We'll be lucky to see a longer, or more revealing trailer before the end of the year.
