Game Informer's November 2012 issue was only published a few days ago, but the magazine's editor in chief has already confirmed the cover story for December.
OMG,finalllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyy yyyyyyyy Hype is back 30% atm
Its about time we get some fresh details
I'm currently playing GTAIV Complete Edition in preparation for GTAV!!!
For the past; god knows how long, we've been reading rumors, speculations, all that kind of crap. At least we know we'll get some real info in December. That's what counts!!!
I guess 4 people don't want new details...
Exactly my sentiments.
I just hope the game is more like San Andreas and less like GTA 4. I want to be able to do all kinds of side missions and crazy stuff like skydiving and working out to gain more stamina. It was cool how in San Andreas you could get fat. LoL I also hope they bring back controller cheat codes. Putting them in with that ingame cell phone sucked!! I want my (r1 r2 l1 r2 left down up right left down up right) cheat codes back. I used to be able to put them in so fast it would slow my PS2 down to like 5 frames per second. Haha
@ blumatt Iagree, I want it more like SA but with a bad ass vice city type story :P.. "I also hope they bring back controller cheat codes. Putting them in with that ingame cell phone sucked!! " This is the only thing I dissagre with, I loved the cell phone having the cheats because I never had to put them in again, I loved summoning my helicopter it made the game so awesome flying everywhere in the helicopter XD ... I remember playing GTA online and jumping out of the heli just in time for it to crash into a building killing everyone LOL!!!!!!!! good times. The MP had so much potential. I can't wait for a new GTA game x_x!
No argument here. Give us the details!
So, looks like a May release then.
Probably, or March or April.
I say May because... GTAIV - April 2008 RDR - May 2010 L.A. Noire - May 2011 I think they may have moved from April to May in their mid-year release schedule. And, this cover issue will be a good way to advertise their R* game bundle which in turn will help advertise GTAV over the months. Not that it really needs that much advertising to sell well.
Yeah, there is a real good chance that it will come in May, don't forget Max Payne 3 in May 2012. But, poor ol' Max didn't sell nearly as well as LA Noire, GTA or RDR, so I think they may (or may not) try the April timeslot like GTAIV.
People clearly read this comment, disagreed, read your logic in the later comment, and agreed. People are stupid.
The first 5 months of 2013 is going to be crazy. Possibly the biggest release of AAA games ever.
After the details are released prepare for a ton of articles like "5 Things I Think They Should Remove From The Game Before It's Released" and other completely retarded articles. Oh wait this is N4G so that's expected lol
OMFG!! FINALLY!!! Can't wait man, i love this series.
i am excited but if you look at GTA 4 which was also on GI cover this is not as much a surprise as it was expection. One thing is after the cover blowout we will know more so all these fake leaks can stop i been paying for GI but only few months actually got the magazine in mail lol. maybe next time i shouldn't renew just too lazy to take action lol anyway hopefully GTA 5 will return to world of mayhem while still having a serious tone like GTA 3,vs and SA i wish RS would release GTA hd collection i would be all over that
Excellent. Game Informer's coverage is always top notch and this is a game I'm very much looking forward to. Bring on the info!
Game Informer always has the GTA blow outs!I still have my Vice City world exclusive magazine too, I have my San Andreas one and my GTA 4 copy I can't wait to slam my face into this. GROVE STREET OG ON THA SET LOC!!! Let the sin...Begin
i feel like i should see a troll face at the end of this article...here's to hoping its finally safe to get my hopes up! lol
My body and reading glasses are ready
lol this was good one
Starting Countdown here
It's about time we had some fresh info
I've been waiting too damn long for this issue.
About damn time!!!!!!
ERMAHDERPYGERD! I CAN'T WAIT, AAAAHHHH! IT IS FINALLY HERE, IM GOING TO BE PLAYING GRAND THEFT AUTO TONIGHT; THIS MADE MY WEEK! AAAAHHHHHH!
Damn about damn time! Damn
i think this is the beginning to reveal the game , like the city / story and gameplay , can't wait >.< ..
Here's hoping this is where they say it's also coming to the Wii U with extra gameplay features with the gamepad. Nintendo fans have been patient enough, and financially this thing will sell regardless of platform.
And exclusive ball mode on gta v -.- ... that exclusive made hate wii u T_T ...
Personally I think this will be one of the first games to be released for the next consoles :)
Awesome so hopefully we see some gameplay next month.
It's good to have subscribed for their digital version of the magazine. :)
Magnificent. GI reveals are always detailed and full of info. Really looking forward to learning about the city and surrounding areas more than anything. I'm hoping that the presence of a lumber truck in a previous screen means the wilderness will be big. The only negative is the slew of 'analytical' articles that will appear on N4G afterwards telling us about what we've already seen.
Part 2 of this? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
March seems too soon. I'm hopeful for a April 23rd 2013 release, but knowing Rockstar and their passed launches. In reality it maybe August 27th 2013. Rockstar are the kings of making us wait and even worse they never show actual game play. Especially with GTA games. They show cinematics which use the game play engine, but we never actually see the character being controlled. That's what they did with GTAIV. I finally saw game play footage of GTAIV when some people got the game a few days before the launch and started uploading game play videos to youtube. RDR was a different story. Rockstar wouldn't really show game play footage from the story mode, but did show multiplayer game play footage. Will see what they do this time. One things for sure. Expect a lot of cinematic trailers.
Could just be a 5 page article about the history of GTA and what they're hoping to see in GTAV! Loads of mags did them before GTA4 came out!!
Rockstar is good for taking criticism well and listening to fans. After GTA4 and the response it got I'm hoping this game will be amazing. The best of the ps2 games with the best of gta4 and something new to make it stand apart. Vice city was a great follow up to 3 and the second ps2 game. we saw some great improvements and new ideas. This game will be better than people think.
Any REAL GTA news is good news at this point. Speculation up the wazoo is getting us nowhere...
GREAT NEWSSSSSS!!!!! I Kiss my grandmother's hands
Can't wait for next issue! About time!
Read in another article that they went to play the demo of the game in NY! JAMMY GETS!!!
Thank-you, Based God.
Early scans just leaked online! Its a WiiU EXCLUSIVE! EHRMIGAWD! *world explodes* trollface. j.k
About Damn Time!!! I've been waiting months for new info on this game lmao
I'm going to pass on buying it new. GameStop can have my money for the pre-owned copy a few months later. Going to be to busy with Halo, Dead Space 3, Ni No Kuni and Tomb Radar.
It'll still sell insanely well....but I think a Pre-Christmas release for GTAV would have been monumental..... I hate playing the waiting game :(
all I wanna know is when is the release date
I've NEVER finished a GTA game, EVER! I get lost in just d!cking around that I lose sight of the stories. But what I do notice is when a GTA game has a good story it takes me wayyyy longer to just mess around with the other stuff... The main one in the franchise that I went straight to messing around in was GTA4, just couldn't get into it AT ALL! Im just hoping this game brings way more side things to do for sure, I want it to be the biggest gameplay offering of GTA to date... and it shouldn't be too much to ask for considering that it's their second attempt even on this gen of systems. They should have enough logic from 4 to provide more gameplay and better graphics!
December december december december december GTA V oh god, this better be true game informer. You better not be rustling these jimmies here.
Actually, they are. Magazines name their issues one month ahead of when they release. E.g: The issue to release in November is called the "December Issue" so GTA V news in November, NOT December.
Wii U version plox? PS3 is fine too as long as it's not butchered like Red Dead Redemption.
Lol ofcourse, we can look foward to reading the GTA 5 info before Game Informer lands on the shelf .. Someone always gets a copy 1) earlier than everyone else. 2) "leaked copy"
So freaking excited!
I better wait for watch dogs. it will be same old crap
Nothing new, look a few words and everyone is wettijg themselfs Its only a small thing. Info, screenshots and footage maybe. Nothing to have a wetdream over
I've never before anticipated the release of a magazine before. Counting down the days lol.
