GTA V falls within two release windows

The flurry of Grand Theft Auto 5 screens had been a nice tease for fans of the franchise, but the silence since is not welcoming and it is hoped that another GTA V trailer would land soon considering the prolonged wait since the last one. The viral marketing, new images, and other information had led some people to believe a release date would at least be announced soon, but nothing has come to light and some gamers are starting to get frustrated again. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

Newegg lets me preorder the game and it claims that the game is coming out on the 31st of December.

why would anyone release a game imediatly after the holiday season. I call bullsh*t.

Yeah! Why would anyone release a game during the boxing day sales that last all week after christmas.The most intense shopping week of the entire year!

Totally crazy!

@TCG_Returns The amount of revenue they would miss out on by doing that is ridiculous, Whether its GTA V or not releasing just after Christmas is a bad idea.

most places do that it's just a place marker. it's not coming out on the 31st they do that until they have the real date.

Oh Okay! I found it a bit weird. I was like aren't the buyers going to be drained of all their money after Christmas? haha Thanks.

retailers and sites use Dec 31st as a place holder if the release date is not in the current year. unless your stupid enough to think the game is coming out dec31

GTA 5 won't come until 2013, most likely before April.

I still have some games I have yet to even crack open that I bought/downloaded back earlier this year; them taking their time to make the game is released with a low number of issues is perfectly ok with me.
