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!
