Did Rockstar Publish GTA5 Release Date Accidently? Since Been Deleted And Removed From Site


Real Or Fake? There is a new image going round on facebook pages which claims to be from Rockstar website, And claims to be the leaked release date, Which has swiftly been removed since then.

The story is too old to be commented.

64 players online??? maybe the PC version, but even tho it says Q4 2012 that doesn't mean dick. its most likely 60-70% finished

vortis1996d ago

Q4 2012 can also relate to the early actual first quarter of 2013, in financial terms.

Whitefeather1996d ago

Probably in the polishing stage, since you know they haven't made a game since GTAIV.

TheRealSpy1996d ago (Edited 1996d ago )

I don't understand this comment. are you being sarcastic? trolling?

guitarded771996d ago

I agree with vortis 4Q of 2012 runs into 2013 and maybe a March release. Not saying it will happen, but it could very well happen. All I know is that I'm ready for R* to release some gameplay vids of GTAV.

FarCryLover1821996d ago

Well, Whitefeather is right in a sense. Rockstar North is making GTA V and their last game that they made on their own was GTA IV. But sure, they've helped on other Rockstar titles.

ever heard of a crap game called MAG? 256 ring a bell?

swat_teem1995d ago

they had to scale back other stuff by alot in order to play with 256 players and by the way gta 5 is looking idk if they can have 64 players maybe on PC but i don't thith 64 would be on ps3 or xbox

Listen I don't know why people question things like this... The game was always scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2012 - The first trailer released 9 months ago...

-(Rockstars track record is release trailers when the path is clear and game is near completion - meaning it is getting close to done.)

-but things happen when your dealing with real life and even though that's when you thought you could get it done, you run into problems.. -This happened with GTA IV as it ran into coding problems.

Bioshock Infinite needed more time and got delayed. I believe the truth is this..

It was always coming out Q4 2012 but they have run into some problems and at this point don't know if they can work it all out in-time or if they will miss the expected timeline, but to be safe they have not announced a date.

I think all is good it's still on track, second trailer will drop soon with a 2012 release date, if they can't get it done in-time then we will see a early 2013 but the plan I believe is to release at then end of 2012. Late December.


geddesmond1996d ago

Well I do remember Rockstarr saying they don't like revealing games until they are nearly finished so I don't think the games gonna be a year off and has GTAV in their Autumn release date with To be Confirmed as the release date so maybe we will get a surprise release date for this Fall.

When don't have any release date they stick the games with a December 31st release date or an April 31st if the games expected next year sometime. I found it strange that they put GTAV in the coming soon in Autumn section and a to be confirmed release date on it because they never do that with other games.

Maybe an announcement is coming in a few weeks when they release more screenshots that they announced.

hmm hopefully around late december holiday season i heard their stock isn doing so well so mabe they cant affrd to delay it to 2013.

Blankman851996d ago

Can you imagine? CoD Vs Halo Vs GTA? That would be massive!
Only HD games this gen to sell 9 million and above on one console if VGChartz is to be believed.

3-4-51996d ago

Millions of gamers online daily. lol

Those 3 plus AC3 multiplayer and I'm set for online gaming for at least a year.

Blankman851996d ago

14 disagrees lol. What part of what I said was inaccurate? Fine I'll add Kinect Adventures to the list if it upsets you so much that I left it off
PS. I know it's because a certain console doesn't have an exclusive that has sold that much but we'll pretend its cause I left out Kinect Adventures

negative1996d ago

Why do you care so much about disagrees? Is it that important to you?

Half of the people on here are ignorant morons anyway.

roadkillers1996d ago

San Andreas, Halo 2, and MGS3 were all released within a month from each other. I remember because it was usually a fight between these three for Game of the Year.

It was back and forth for sales between San Andreas and Halo. Halo had a bigger launch, but San Andreas had longer legs. This was rare since I have never seen two amazingly huge games launch alongside each other.

So heres hoping we get a rematch San Andreas vs. Halo II.

sourav931996d ago

Why the 9 million milestone? Why not 5 million? or 10 million? Just seems like an odd sales figure.

Blankman851996d ago

Let me put it simpler then, they are the top 3 selling franchises on a single HD platform. If I had said 10 million then only CoD and Halo would qualify. If I had said 5 million then a whole lotta unrelated games would have qualified. 9 million is reserved for the elite 3.
@negative, note the lol after my comment about the number of disagrees. I don't particularly care for them, I've come to know that when you like a certain console on this site, disagrees come with the territory.
I only mentioned it just to point it out and let them know that I know the real reason they disagreed.

Q4 2012 technically includes the early months of 2013, so a March 2013 still seems likely.

It's not coming out in 2012.

chak_1996d ago

I wonder why you're so sure of yourself.

We have no idea of the game's current state, nor do we have any idea about R* plans.

Rubberlegs1996d ago

If GTA5 was set for fall/winter release for this year they would have said something by now. They would be hyping for it preorders and other talk to get people excited. I could see it coming out next spring since that's when GTA4 was released.

Crazyglues1996d ago

@ Gaetano-MyMedia

No actually Q4 does not include early months of 2013 -that would be Q1

The results of Q4 are just released in the early months of the next year.. or early 2013 in this case so I can see how you could think that.

but the fourth Quarter of 2012 make up 3 months -Oct -Nov -Dec 2012

12 months in a year -each quarter breaks down like this..
Q1 -Jan,feb,march
Q2 -April,may,june
Q3 -july,Aug,Sept
Q4- Oct,Nov,Dec

So saying you will release in Q4 2012 would mean the game would come out on one of these 3 months.


OccludedGamer1996d ago

That isn't how a business works it out though. Q4 runs up until March for a business. Which is why Q4 was the expected release window initially too

Crazyglues1996d ago

@ OccludedGamer

Actually this is exactly how a business works.. -


mastershredder1996d ago

Investopia is not a good reference to use (investment and stocks). Speaking from experience, this is not true for all business models. I know, I worked for a couple fortune 500 Companies (as well as my own) and had to wait out on countless quarters to end and close for a multitude of reasons.

gatormatt801996d ago (Edited 1996d ago )

A fiscal quarter is different to what you are explaining Crazyglues. A fiscal 4th quarter for a typical business is usually the months of Jan. Feb. and March. But yes you are correct that a normal 4th quarter is Oct. Nov. and Dec.

So in comparison to release dates it all depends on if its a normal 4th Q, or if its the companies fiscal 4th Q.

Crazyglues1995d ago (Edited 1995d ago )

@ gatormatt80 & mastershredder

very good point, as someone who does day-trading I tend to always think in terms of stocks & investment when I think about a business..

but yes you have a very good point.


Koloss1995d ago

It's called a "Fiscal year". Pretty much any 12 months in which a business do their financial reports and such. "Q4 2012" could very well be into 2013. June 2013, for example, could mean the last month of a 2012 fiscal year. It just depends on company or business.
