Grand Theft Auto 5 Release Date – May 24th?

Mr. Kennedy of TheKoalition.com writes:
Recently, people have been speculating about the highly-anticipated Grand Theft Auto 5 release date and throwing the month “March” around, based on very rough online shop estimates. Back in October 2012, I noticed on one specific site of this description had March as a release date and they still claim that to this very day. Either; Rockstar likes this site very much and has decided not to give them a telling-off for leaking such a date OR…like I said previously, it’s a rough estimate. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

The explanations given in this article are extremely well thought out in both concept and execution. I sure do hope the game drops in May so that the fans who claim it's coming in March can finally be silenced once and for all.

This is making me believe it really is May release.

Also note that the GTA 5 promo poster for Australia says "coming in the Autumn".

Autumn is in May in Australia.

Rockstar said that the box art reveal will be later this month.

The Last of Us is also releasing in May...I like ND I really do but it's bloody suicide if GTAV releases the same month.
MrKennedy  +   941d ago
I think The Last of Us is releasing a couple of weeks before my speculated May 24th. I guess you could be right but Naughty Dog need to go HAM with the ads.

I think releasing a little earlier or later to Gta V will help tLoU achieve it's maximum sales potential

Sony better do some promotion on PSN for people who pre-order both. Like $25 PSN credit or something.

Wow, that's on my birthday! :D
MrKennedy  +   941d ago
I forgot to add that clue!

It also lands on Trago1337's birthday so Rockstar want to commemorate it by dropping GTA 5 on the 24th May!

well it's either march or may and i just know the game is coming out and that is all that is important to me

I hope not, or else I'm going to fail my exams.

The march release date argument makes no sense because BioShock Infinite has now been delayed until late March. Seeing how Take Two is behind both games, they wouldnt release both those titles in the same month and pit them against each other when it would make more sense to spread the releases out further apart. Doing so would allow them to sell even more copies of both games because consumers will actually have the money to buy both on day one. March is a crowded month already and unless they think people are made or money, dropping this game in March would absolutely make no sense.

The real release date is when the PC version releases.
rbailey  +   940d ago
Agreed. The PC Version would definitely be the best.

This guy has really done his homework. Good article and good theories.
snowman2149  +   940d ago
Yeah may 24th is a pretty safe bet, a few weeks after the last of us and a few weeks before E3..I would be surprised if the real release date was earlier or later than the 24th.

May 24th it is then..
