Which is lackluster of well known AAA titles so it's possible for GTA V to release in April. But I'm still banking on early May since April is still close to the release of Bioshock: Infinite, another 2K published title. Hell, May seems a lot more likely since 2K games will have breathing room for sales (Aliens: Colonial Marines on February, Infinite on March and GTA V on May).

The said box art before feb, so I'm going to say before the first with the box art. 5/5/13.

Its weird to see a guy like Pachter get so much suport from the MEDIA...
wile most of us gamers all think he has no place in it.

He's been wrong so many times and its obvious that he doesnt have a gamers eye, let alone a passion for it,
besides the dollars to be made in the industry.

Its like the upper bosses keep pushing him down our troat.
He's jewish right ?

They could reveal the release date with the cover art which should be comming today or tommorow hopefully,

Rockstar sure know how to leave things until the last minute, they said "later this month" and now theres only like 1 day left.

I cant understand why you guys still talking about FISCAL YEAR as Dan H said few nonths ago that fiscal year has nothing to GTA RELEASE DATE. Its realy anoing to read all the tine the same sh... over and over again idk how analitics work ,doesnt they read news , just write becouse they have to? About release date late march early april (they keep the date as long as they can in order to produce many game copies im sure they do not want to let things go like they did with rdr (you coulsnt buy it for few weeks after release)).
Ps. Sorry for caps:))

I read the headline and was brimming with excitement until the "says Pachter" part at the end.

Michael Pachter is the weatherman of the electronics/entertainment industry - more than half of what he forecasts doesnt materialize.

The game is confirmed to release Spring 2013 right? so we should here a release date sometime in February unless the game is pushed back which I hope not cause I'm dying to play!

Pachter says R* will announce GTA5 release date Feb 5th? I don't believe this at all since he said. I wouldn't be surprised at all come Feb 5th we don't hear a peep from R* or Take Two.

I think very shortly after the box art is revealed another trailer will be released showing a release date for the 2nd half of April or first half of May
