A big German retailer confirmed a March release for GTA 5.
Confirmed and Rumor Categorie? That doesn´t match!
This site should sort the news! Not Users! False Release date Confirmed again..
The guy who typed the headline while filing this under rumor is an idiot. That much is confirmed
Retailers DO NOT confirm/decide release dates. Retailers DO what they are told. Publishers are the ones who decide and confirm release dates. Until R* or Take Two tell us... disregard it. N4G would be a lot tidier
From the article: "Whether GTA 5 actually appears in March remains to be seen. Rockstar Games has not yet reached a decision on the release date." So much for being confirmed.
Well whenever it is it needs to come fast. I was just playing IV online last night until 2am with two of my friends. We were getting hyped and just naming off the new features well be able to do in V's multilayer! (underwater exploration, riding around with our dogs, crashing jets into other player's cars, parachuting, tractor races/drivebys in the farmlands all this on the largest gta map... God I can't even compose myself typing this comment!
In case anyone doesn't know anything about game development, it takes 3 months to manufacture a game of this magnitude. That means the game would be just about complete this month, in which case we would have at least seen or heard something about it. Most analysts are speculating April or later anyway, but really with so many great games coming out February and March, who cares?
knew that was too good to be true
It is not confirmed! I hate when sites and/or user create false headlines for hits and N4G admins barely regulate the quality of the news being posted
Well it needs 10 votes before going to the front page. While those votes are being given any user can report it, which shows up underneath the picture.

I was about to point that out :')
May as well rename the article GTA 5 will definitely maybe be released next year...
In hidden halls and behind closed doors men speak of confirmation. Or at least so the rumors have told.
If the 15th is a real date, that would make it the 12th in North America and that would kinda overshadow God Of war and maybe Gears of War. While I really want this game, I can't see it releasing in the same month another Take Two game is releasing, even if it is 2 weeks before. Then again Take Two's quarterly/annual earnings report is at the end of March, so I guess it could happen. Edit @Sandmano: I would still get GOW as well and if it is true, it would save me a trip. One hell of a Midnight release.
I will get GOW regardless of GTA overshadowing it but I really hope this release date is true, I need my GTA fix its been long overdue. If not March I believe April 20-30 at the latest
Do take into account Microsoft delayed gears 3 until September they will likely do the same and i don't know about GOWA hopefully sony does the same.
Microsoft won't delay Gears this time. First of all its a side project, not a main Gears game, so I don't think they are depending on it too much to sell. Gears 3 was delayed to make time for a beta, and also because they didn't have much to launch that fall. This time it may be different. If the rumours are true which seems very likely, the next xbox will be launching at the end of next year. No way would they launch a current gen game at that time.
Don't toy with my emotions.
I don't believe it. #1 Retailers are often wrong and use placeholder release dates ALL THE TIME. #2 Take-Two's other huge published title, BioShock Infinite is releasing in March, alongside other fairly massive games like God of War Ascension, Gears of War: Judgement and Tomb Raider. #3 April is a scarce month for big games. Rockstar/T2 are smarter than this.
God of War will steal GTA's thunder if it comes out in march
Not steal. Share the spotlight, is how I'd better describe it. God of War is massive but it's not big enough to dethrone GTA/Rockstar hype.
Nothing is confirmed until rockstar says it is. Or any studio for that matter.
Exactly. Retailers are never an accurate source for release dates and are frequently wrong, yet people never learn. Well they do learn, but they still run with retailer release dates anyways because it's cheap and easy hits for their websites I guess, journalistic integrity be damned.
Wait for Rockstar to say something. If this happens i expect to see a couple of games getting moved to April.
No way Take Two releases GTA V and Bioshock in the same month.
Why do people keep saying this? Publishers ALWAYS release their games at the same time. This is not opinion, it's fact. Look.
Cant wait to get this on my PS3
I find it hard to believe a game like gta v would release 2 months from now without even revealing the release date , the minimum date that we can believe is the fifth month ..
Well according to their second trailer the game should release within spring. So if we take them at their word the latest possible date would be the 30th April.
Spring is late March through late June.
@ johnny : Here in Ireland spring months are February , March and April. The Roman Calender that some countries follow the Spring months are late March through late June.
March is to close for it to be announced now, they need to do advertising and release more trailers.
If this is correct then march gonna be the biggest month of this year. God Of War Ascension, Sly Thieves In Time, GTA 5, Rayman Legends and Gears Of War Judgment My wallet is ready anytime!
If your desperate for hits come to my house and I'll happily oblige!! Think I'll wait for Rockstar themselves to announce(then delay) it until I start getting a semi!!
I don't think it's true, and IF it was, I'd disappointed by Take-Two's marketing team. However they knew when GTA was going to be released, so why would the set the new release date for BioShock when it got pushed back right around GTA?! For me it would make sense to release it on April 23rd, maybe 30th. No other big releases are around that time except for The Last Of Us on May 7th, so the 23rd would be a perfect date and it would be pretty much in line with the final release date of GTA IV (April 29th).
beyond two souls ?!
Considering that Bioshock Inf is out over a week later (its even mention in the article), that release date is highly unlikely. Also, looking back at Rockstar's previous track record, my money is on a May release, considering that they've brought out a major game in this month for 3 Years running.
Getting me hopes up for nothing again.. when rockstar confirms it then I will believe it
Best news of the year.
Misleading. I want my click back.
@ Johnny_Cojones A bit of confusion on my part. See in Ireland we follow Celtic tradition and the months of spring are February, March and April. You guys in the UK and the USA follow the Roman Calender. I apologize for my last comment as it was based solely on ignorance.
In what way is this a confirmation? Μisleading headline wins again... >_>
http://n4g.com/news/1148173... Go to this url and report this submission. This is not news, it is a rumor. Extremely misleading title as well.
that makes 2 retailers now that have stated or shown march on the release date. still rumored but if one more retailer says march i think that would confirm the release date or the rumor wouldn't be as salty
False info is false....
15 March is a Friday, when video games are released in Europe, which would make it a 12 March release in the United States. Seems plausible but it would be wise to wait for an official confirmation.
Very first line of the article "GTA 5 will be published 15 March 2013" Published is not the same as release. Later in the article "Whether GTA 5 actually appears in March remains to be seen. Rockstar Games has not yet reached a decision on the release date." whoever put this headline up is retarded. Boo This man, vote down the article. Read the article before you beleive the headline people.
It's not confirmed until R* confirms it.
misleading title... Its not confirmed at all...
How much release dates do we get "confirmed"? Just wait till R*'s official reveal cause wasn't November suppose to be "confirmed"?

For the last time, Take Two will not release BioShock & GTA in the same month/weeks apart. I expect GTA 5 to make late April, early May.
I will wait for pc even though i have an 360.
When did Rockstargames change their name to 'A Big German Retailer?' That doesn't roll off the tongue too smoothly.
my only concern is how long will i have to wait for the pc version, I want to play it in 1080p, with all settings on ultra vs. low on console, and have mods later to toy around with hopefully they only delay the pc version a month, but i'm not counting on it, though max payne 3 on pc was PERFECT, it looked 2 generations beyond the console versions. so its worth the wait.
What's that you say? Rockstar didn't say this? Fuck you then.
So we're supposed to trust a retailer in Germany... a country that regularly BANS mature rated games?
I think it will release April 30th. March is too soon. I expect the date will be announced before the end of January unless the game will be delayed.
