GTA V Release Date Revealed

OXCGN:

"It’s safe to say that the entire gaming world is anticipating GTA V.

Rockstar has been elusive up until the last few months, finally nailing down the spring of 2013, but without informing us of a concrete date.

Today, Amazon has revealed that we could be jumping back into Los Santos a lot sooner than you think." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

This makes sense. Kind of odd for Amazon to sneak this out right before Christmas, though.

GTA V will be a day one purchase for me, for sure, but I have enough games right now that it'll be long after March before I'm done playing them and then GTA V... those March releases will be discounted by the time I'm ready for them.

i don't think so. i think april-may 2013 is more likely. but i won't complain if this comes out in march its a day one buy for me anyway
asmith2306  +   612d ago
I'm glad it doesn't clash with Last of Us. I should be finishing up with GTA around May and will roll right into Last of Us, it will make a nice change of pace! Two awesome games with completely different gameplay one after the other.
BlmThug  +   612d ago
This is a very misleading headline as R* have not revealed the date yet :/
NBT91  +   612d ago
That's what I thought. It's so dumb, how hard is it to add the words "By Amazon" in the title?
DOMination-  +   612d ago
How many times do websites post this kind of crap. We all should know by now that most retailers just put down a placeholder date as a rough estimate. Just wait for the publishers to say the release date!

makes perfect sense. They released those screenshots today.

rockstar typically aren't very glamorous in these things, because they know gamers/press will make the glamour on their own. So it seems credible to me.
Hooshuwashu  +   612d ago
Yes please...
BadCircuit  +   612d ago
I still don't get why this title is so anticipated. I'm so meh about GTA these days. So much more out there now.
BitbyDeath  +   612d ago
GTA is exciting cause unlike almost every other game it goes into finer mechanics of what you can do, a lot of which is not known until it is released.

Like can we go in buildings? or will there be tanks? we know animals exist but will there be many or can we use them in a fight? or what happens if i drive a car into x building etc.

Rockstar generally up the ante and keep it fresh with each game.

The writing and characters alone are worth the price of admission. GTAIV was one of the few games this gen that could truly make me laugh out loud. From NPC conversations to the tv and radio broadcasts, nothing is better.

I'm just hoping there will be detailed cockpits, I trust Rockstar will nail everything else.
torchic  +   612d ago
GTA IV -.-
YodaCracker  +   612d ago
I agree. I have never laughed so hard while playing a video game as I have while watching "I'm Rich" on GTA IV's in-game TV and surfing the in-game internet. Rockstar are comedic masterminds.

Great, more stories based on Amazon....
Reminds of me stories like this one: http://n4g.com/news/1057226...

The release date will be announced when it is announced. Whenever it is, it's not today and it's not next month. Official word will come in due time.

dboyc310  +   612d ago
Wonder why you want it out in May? My thought will be because of The Last of Us. But whatever releases on that month it wont impact the quality that the game is going to have.
DigitalRaptor  +   612d ago
That is exactly why he wants that to happen dude, and he's even mentioned the same thing in a past comment. here have a look:

Why do you hate Naughty Dog so much? Why do you want GTA V sales to influence the last of us. I bet that if ND would be exclusive to Microsoft, you would treat them like Gods

Haha May? Two whole months AFTER everyone has played played it/ the media started blaming crimes on it? Psshh, I'll be in paradise come March 27th, with GTAV in my PS3. Then, in May, I'll be in paradise again, with The Last of Us now in my PS3.
BLAKHOODe  +   612d ago
Meh, maybe. That's right before summer and, believe it or not, there are some gamers who actually wander out into the sunlight during summer and stop playing games. A game as big as GTA V might benefit from a March release in that sense and with all the other big March releases, maybe the gaming industry is finally starting to understand that.

I don't think it will come out that soon. Take Two owns both Rockstar and Irrational Games. Why would they release both of their heavy hitters on the same day?

Just about to post this. It doesn't make sense as the same audience will probably buy both games. I don't see this happening.
Plagasx  +   612d ago
Yup this 100 percent. There is no way in hell they would do that. I'm betting an April release.

I don't know guys, could be just another placeholder. Last tuesday of Q1 is a suspicious date and I believe the same date as Take Two and Irrational Games Bioshock Infinite. Just some food for thought though, hopefully I'm totally wrong!

2013 man im so looking forward to this game. Im also looking forward to cryteks new shooter. And im also looking forward to e3. This years e3 must feature xbox 720 and ps4. But out of all this im looking forward to 3 games. Watchdogs looks awesome. GTA 5 ofcourse. And im also looking forward to respawn entertainments new game aka the old infinity ward the guys who invented cod but never got a chance to make it better.
rbailey  +   612d ago
Obviously whoever researched this story failed to get the facts straight because BioShock Infinite is coming out on March 26th. Both the BioShock and GTA franchises are owned by Take Two so there is no way they would release both these games the same week, let alone the same month.

May seems likely especially when you look at the last 3 releases Rockstar put out. Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire, and Max Payne 3 all came out in may, so my guess is this will also.

Before The Last of Us? That's surprising.

Riderz1337  +   612d ago
Safe to say this won't interfere with the Last of Us release date unlike some people were expecting. Unfortunately, the same can not be said for GoW Ascension and GoW Judgement.

Didn't they say Spring guys?
hawkeyejonjon  +   612d ago
Its a possibility it will come out in march. Bioshock infinite was suppose to come out in February but delayed(again). For all we know they were deciding to bring gta v in march and Bioshock infinite in February but that got messed up. i will predict Bioshock infinite will be delayed again to april-may due to irrational games is having trouble but only time will tell. if Bioshock infinite does get delayed again, irrational games should just say something like this, "we don't know when it will get released, the release date will be announced when we are sure it will get released on the day that it was given" or something along that line.
For GTA V releasing in march, idk but i have a feeling it will come out in march or april. Either month is good.
porkChop  +   612d ago
Take Two already said the game would launch by the end of March. March 26 = pretty much the end of March. So how is that "a lot sooner than you think"?
ZBlacktt  +   612d ago
So at the end of the day. This is all a rumor and nothing factual at all.
maxcon  +   612d ago
Calling it now: the game will be announced for May, and pushed to end of June.
GrandMaxPain  +   612d ago
I prefer that it will be released in fall rather than even may so we can be sure that the game is bug free.
flappersack  +   612d ago
Did Rockstar confirm this date? If not, then move along.
DwightOwen  +   612d ago

The article title says "GTA V Release Date Revealed." In the article it says "This is by no means official." Therefore, it's simply another hit grabbing attempt with no official word from Rockstar. Waste of time.
onandonandon  +   612d ago
"While this is by no means official" So why use that attention seeking title then? Not getting any at home?
knifefight  +   612d ago
People slobber over Amazon dates and it gets hits, even though Amazon placeholder dates are not the actual release date like 95% of the time. The website will rake in some traffic and the people who clicked it are the type who will click it again and not be any the wiser. Me? No thanks, I'm not giving this site a click for an Amazon date.

Take Two has previously confirmed that GTA V won't release until FY14. That means it won't launch until at least April 1st.
