And so it begins. Cannot wait for this game.

Jamzluminati1819d ago

The embargo will commence today :)


Peppino71819d ago

This is one game that no matter how many sequels come out... people are generally happy and eager for its release. I'm pretty happy about this news. Hope to see some shots of the game.

jammy_701819d ago

Spring 2013 I though this was obvious months ago, just hope the world don't end!!!

CraigandDayDay1819d ago

Cannot wait to play this game, guys!!!

I've been excited ever since I heard it was going to be set in the San Andreas area again. I hope it's every bit as fun as that was.

if theres anything ive learned in the current gen of consoles is to never EVER believe R* when it comes to a release date. every game theyve released has been delayed multiple times. max payne 3 , la noire, gta4, agent, episodes of gta4, red dead redemption,midnight club. i dont tihnk theres a single game thats been released when they say itll be released.

ape0071819d ago (Edited 1819d ago )

gta FTW

ShoryukenII1819d ago (Edited 1819d ago )

It wasn't obvious at all. It would match with their recent release patterns but we still haven't seen a single thing about the game since the trailer last year (those screenshots do not count). This is actually very surprising to me (well, I knew from the poster the other day).

SolidStoner1818d ago

This is one of my favorite games!
cant wait for GTA style game play, cars, philosophy and high level jokes!
1st day it come out I will be high and play it with some of those rastafarian radio stations! :)

irepbtown1818d ago (Edited 1818d ago )

I just want to ride a BMX...

#I should also add, remember the rumours that GTA V would release in March?
Seems very realistic now, doesn't it?

#Does it say 'iFruit' on the Girl's phone?

Just as I thought. May it is just like the rest of the games they release.

Edit:And it's not on the Wii U! Thank god for that.

Marcello1819d ago (Edited 1819d ago )

Yea i had thought this too, Rockstar seem to want to rls 1 game year around May. If you go by the last few years

gta28001819d ago

Every single GTA game came out in October though. I remember this very well cause my birthday is on October 31st and GTA games were always at the top of my birthday list. Only GTA game I recall not releasing October was GTA 4 which released in Spring, sometime around April if I remember correctly so it seems Spring is the new season for GTA games.

No FanS Land1819d ago

true, I remeber GTA: SA being out on oct. 20th or 26th 2004.

Neonridr1819d ago

what would be so wrong with it being on the Wii U?

FriedGoat1819d ago (Edited 1819d ago )

because Shigsy would be sat in tears at the violence with a big stupid controller in hand.

BushLitter1819d ago

GTAIV was released 28th April. I remember this coz I made up a stupid jingle, singing the date all every damn day till release. It went something like this: "April 28th, April 28th, Aaappprrrilll 28th" :P

wastedcells1819d ago

They pretty much switched to spring releases this gen. It's been consistent.

ape0071819d ago


shigssy what?, lol manhunt 2 was released on wii and it's more sick and violent than any gta game ever, plus watch that zombie u debut CG trailer, very disturbing

Indeed it does begin. This is the only GTA Release Date article that should have been up on N4G for months. I have no idea how so many false release date articles have been at the top of my N4G page when there had been no official announcement.

Oh, well! This is the real deal and I'm excited.

Finally I don't have to see a bunch of idiots get excited over unofficial dates.

nrvalleytime1819d ago

Well said. It's not easy simply speculating about the release date, but this will keep things quiet around here for some time.

Until the inevitable first review articles show up.

gta28001819d ago

If a certain video game was air to a gamer, the Grand Theft Auto franchise would be my air.

farhad2k81819d ago

Brace your selves.

Thank fuck they've announced SOMETHING, I've been dying all these days without answers from Rockstar!

Mocat1819d ago

Am i the only one that trying to figure out how that chick took a picture of her self
(and i now its not real but still wtf!!)

beerkeg1819d ago

Front camera, I've got one on my phone.

Awesome_Gamer1819d ago

Everyone i know is talking about, me included obviously, it's trending on twitter too, literally everyone i know is talking about GTA V and completely forgot about BO2/AC3, can't wait!.

BushLitter1819d ago

Excited that its coming out so soon, but slightly worried that it's releasing for current gen consoles.

Thatguy-3101819d ago

Looks like it will be taking place in LA. That chick seems to be in Santa Monica beach. Gotta love Cali girls XD Psyched!!!

TENTONGUN1819d ago (Edited 1819d ago )

gta ftw. good times

Jinkies1819d ago

I wonder if she's the official girl for the game, you know how theres always been that one girl for each GTA promotional poster material and box art

Does anyone think theres a chance they will include more cities and announce them closer to release like they did with GTA SA. It can't be as big as they say and only includes LS and the left hand side country side, I know the map will obviously be differnt from GTA SA but GTA4s Liberty City still resembled the city from GTA3 with newly added places.

geddesmond1819d ago

Spring is looking to be a monster time of the year for gaming. GOW:A, Dead Space 3, GTA5!! Bye Bye summer

showtimefolks1819d ago

will pre order when there is a limited edition that is announced. GTA 5 limited edition needs to be for ballers

yeah i said it lol

anyway like millions of other gamers day one for sure can't wait to find out more info in gameinformer's issues

LackTrue4K1819d ago

"cant wait"

WOW this is HUGE!! March PLEASE!!

MattyG1819d ago (Edited 1819d ago )

Noooo, during February vacation please! haha but yeah it'll probably be march.

crimsonfox1819d ago (Edited 1819d ago )

I will weep if it's after March. Although I'm happy knowing it's coming soon and that it will infact be the hottest thing since sliced bread. GTA V...If you were a man...I'd French kiss you like a madman

MattyG1819d ago

@crimsonfox you'd kiss it if it were a man? What about a woman?

crimsonfox1819d ago

If it were a woman id demand a sex change

wastedcells1819d ago

Won't be February cause bioshock comes out then. Same company.

waltercross1818d ago (Edited 1818d ago )


It could be Febuary. Bioshock and GTA are two very different games. But I predict Early April.

JKelloggs1819d ago

I reckon April, seeing as GTA4 came out in April

But lets hope for March!

Outside_ofthe_Box1819d ago

Makes sense, but the earlier the better!

AmkOwns1819d ago

Finally no more stupid rumors

WildStyles1819d ago

Thank freaking god we can enjoy this on regular consoles.

JKelloggs1819d ago

What exactly are "regular consoles"?

I've never heard of an irregular console...

waltercross1818d ago

"I've never heard of an irregular console"

The Wii and the PC. LOL :P
