Trendy Gamers: With the leak that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be launching on November 13th, this essentially solidifies the day when we can expect to see Grand Theft Auto V and that will be October 9th.
Too close to Resident Evil 6 and Bioshock Infinite for me if it did release on that date. I'd rather them release it the same month as CoD since it's the only real big game coming out that month (GTA5 can hold it's own and may even take away sales from CoD).
halo 4 is out in november.
so, if it were released in november with Halo 4 and cod then theres two much bigger games than RE6 and Bioshock releasing still. Since the first poster mentioned sales and said cod is novembers only big game for some stupid reason Halo 4 should have been brought up.
^ Remember they don't know what Halo is, if is not on PS3 is not a game, to their eyes of course.
So smart, GTA5 release first, get a headstart in sales and in November everything non COD or Halo will flop, RE6 can have moderate sales, but everything else XP
I want this game to release head to head against CoD and Halo. It would destroy both of them.
You're right, still feel like October is a bit too crowded for GTAV's release though. Man, Oct-Dec is gonna be game heavy.
Crowded with awesomeness!
Lets not forgot Assassin's Creed 3.
Can't wait for halo, assassins creed and gta!
Other games would get out the way for GTA5. Only COD would really stand toe to toe with it across all platforms sales wise. GTA4 of course held the fastest sales record of all time before MW2 beat it 18 months later no doubt with no small help from a much bigger install base. Personally i think the game may end up in Spring 2013 like a lot of you. Although other games would move for GTA5, it is most unlikely that Take Two (knowing their dates) would put Bioshock Infinite just one week after their biggest franchise.... That is surely evidence enough that although there is a gap there, it almost certainly won't be filled by GTA5.
why is everyone so naive. do you really trust take2 and Rockstar when it comes to releasing games on time. this will be delayed just like every other R* game released in the past 5 years. anyone remember agent
Similar to last years Oct - Dec game launches.
what? imagine cod, gta and halo 4 releasing on the same month!! it would be a chaos!
Id have to go and sell my Kidney to get all three lol
^^^ You'd sell your kidneys for 180 bucks? Sheez is the economy that bad?
@Strange I fell to the floor Laughing. And really Noodle? Your kidneys for £120?
Not gonna happen its april,may or june 2013 you can take to the bank. max payne 3 bioshock 2 huge titles for take-two so why would they release another one
Exactly. Why on Earth would Take Two kill ALL sales for BioShock Infinite with GTA V overshadowing it? That's just out right stupid.
Because most gamers can afford to make more than one purchase in a month.
Oh cause halo 4 isn't a big game huh?
What the hell is Halo? /sarcasm
depends for how many % they are targetting the same audience.
GTA V will be the biggest game in the fall.
I think they are hoping to hit with a fall 2012 date but if they can't get it done by then it will slip to early 2013.. -I think that's the real reason they will not announce the date just yet.. Not until they are almost done with the core coding features of the game... once that's done they can lock in how long it will take to finish up the other stuff like graphics on certain things and fine tuning performance and side missions.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
I'm sure they are finished with the "core coding" part of the game. If they weren't we'd be looking at a late 2013/2014 release at the earliest. The majority of the remaining months leading up to a games release are Alpha/Beta testing to make sure everything runs correctly. I'm sure with games like GTA (more open, plus multiplayer) have longer alpha and beta phases.
so which one would you buy...i think everyone would buy gta 5 rather than one that jsut had a game on it less than 2 years ago compared to the almost 4 year gta 4 distance
Almost 4? GTA 4 just turned 4 two weeks ago. GTA5 is coming this year for sure.
Actual, believe it or not, TODAY is GTA IV's fourth birthday. It released on 4/29/2008. Today is 4/29/2012.
No way it launches that early in October. GTA 3 launched on Oct. 22 in NA, Vice City launched on Oct. 27, San Andreas launched on Oct. 26, The PSP titles launched even launched in late Oct. I'm sure that GTA IV would've launched in late October if hadn't been delayed. It will either launch on Oct. 23rd or on the 30th IMHO.
