I was just looking through the tesco website for future games and came across this for GTA V - http://www.tescoentertainment.com/store/game/xbox-360-grand-theft-auto-v/8%3a789534

28/12/2012 - Seems like a strange date to me

When a release date has not been confirmed, in most cases, stores use whatever is the standard release date.

For instance, GAME did have 31/12/2012 for a lot of video games. At the moment I am not seeing the full date, but 31/12 was the release date for many titles with out officially confirmed releases.

Ah right, it's just as far as I was aware (I work for tesco) they normally put the release dates as 2020 when they don't have a date for it yet, like this http://www.tescoentertainment.com/store/game/wii-line-rider--freestyle/8%3a426641

I would think it would be during "Fall Madness" like all the rest.

I'm glad you kinda understood what I was trying to say because I re-read it and didn't understand myself. >=]

There have been what I call accidental confirmations, where a store posts the official release date before the publisher makes the announcement. Maybe you're right, December 28 could be the release date for GTA V.

Looking at Wikipedia, GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas were released during the months of October and November. The PC version of GTA IV was released in December. Console versions were released in April and TBoGT was released in October.

The final few months of the year must be hot for Take-Two.

The box looks like the most straightforward thing they could have done. But let's not judge a game by its box. I am looking forward to GTA V and to another fun multiplayer (no insane achievements for multiplayer plz...getting to max level is just too much)

I love all you people saying this as though there's no doubt in the world that this is when it will drop. What are your sources making you so sure about this? None of us that are going to be on here have even the slightest clue as to how far along the game is so how can any of you try saying it won't come out earlier than that date?

Didn't i already explain to you why we are guesstimating that? why is it so hard for you to accept that maybe that's when its coming?.

it's because we are going by Rockstars previous releases in the last 4 years. all of which were in April or May. so it only makes sense to say that.

if people want to throw random guesses that's fine. but some of us are confident in those 2 months next year. trust me, ill be surprised big time if it doesn't release then because it sure as hell isn't coming out this year when all we have is one trailer and nothing else to go by. i saw that it's rumored to be out by October and i just laughed.

I agree it's most likely going to be a Spring 2013 release, just look at every rockstar release in the last 5 years..

I was thinking the same thing although I hope we're both wrong and it comes out Oct/Nov 2012.

The last 5 years release month vs. the usual GTA release month. I don't really care which it is, I just want to have some confirmation on whether or not it will be this year instead of just rumors.

I don't believe that one bit. in fact, i won't believe it unless it comes from R* themselves.

It was scheduled for October but got delayed. Pretty much every single other GTA has released in October so that would still make it the usual.

GTA (Original)-October 1997
GTA II- October 22/25, 1999
GTA III- October 22, 2001
GTA VC- October 27/31, 2002
GTA SA- October 26, 2004
GTA Advance- October 25, 2004
GTA LCS- October 24, 2005
GTA VCS- October 31, 2006
GTA CTW- 20 October 2009 (PSP)

Recon the next announcement R* will make about GTA V will be the release date, Their going to be firing the info at us once Max Payne is out... Hope its October but next April wouldnt be a bad thing either!

Yeah, like Buzz said placeholder

I always here crap about how it was meant to be out last March. So then when April come, I jokingly said 'hey wheres my GTA' To make things worse people are now saying its coming out in June. :confused: No matter how many times I try to convince people nothing has been confirmed, no one believes me.

Interesting, I was in my local Blockbusters a few days ago, and noticed on their pre-order book, it had GTA V listed for October 26th, went back in yesterday and that date had been crossed out in thick black marker and TBC written in....

someone post something they shouldnt? or honest mistake?

I'm putting my money on Spring 2013, I mean they just released Max Payne 3, 2 big rockstar titles in the same year? It's not normal.

I could see later this year but I think May is the most likely. That's when RDR and LA Noire came out plus there's less games to compete with

You don't know what's coming out in May 2013.
GTA games have no competition.

possibly later this year according to Xbox Support

@TheRealDubster The next title, Grand Theft Auto 5, will be out later this year :) ^BB

- Xbox Support


then a follow up:

@TheRealDubster hey there, just to follow up. There is no official release date for that game, so we don't have info on when it is out. ^BB

- Xbox Support


so it's possible they were telling the truth in the first post, but then told they should have posted that info?

Autumn would be ideal time to release the game. Yes it has competition but I think a lot of people would prefer to buy this than another COD.

I think May 2013 would be a mistake. You have E3 in June and I'm pretty sure new consoles would be announced for both MS and Sony. This will no doubt harm sales slightly as people would rather save for the new console.

Also think about GTA4, it had two huge DLC's, I'm guessing GTA5 would like to go bigger this time. You release the game in May, first DLC probably ready by Autumn, next one in Spring. Possibly a new console could be out, also ruin sales of the DLC unless they announce that GTA5 will also be available on the nextgen.

If any May, MS could announce new console in June but also DLC released on xbox first again. Just speculating. This Autumn feels better for me.

Zavvi have just started pre-orders of the game with a release date 23rd November 2012.

Could time really as its just a month before Xmas. Everyone knows kids play these games so just in time to nag parents for it.

Some companies are given dates and arent suppose to post stuff till R* confirm it themselves so think they are either wrong or we are due something this week.

It will be oct/nov. Im sure of it.

I'm with you.

Based solely on Take-Two's financial projections to stockholders that they'll make nearly 2 billion in profit by the end of this fiscal (which ends March 2013), I think the game will be out by year's end.

The only way Take-Two is going to see that kind of money is by releasing GTAV, because Borderlands 2, BioShock: Infinite and Max Payne 3 combined aren't going to get them there.

I think R* are sitting on all GTAV information in hopes of not killing what little interest is left in Max Payne 3 - which is not even in the top 20 games played over XBOX live 2 months after release while GTAIV and Red Dead are #11 and #15, respectively and have been out for 2-4 years...

My guess is GTA V must be comming late april or may because may its rockstars month

What if they are wanting to announce it right before they release it? Remember when Microsoft announced that the Slim 360's were coming out the very day they announced them?

I was having a look through the October releases (as R* generally release GTA in October or April), and noticed that from the 2nd to the 30th, there is not much in terms of blockbuster games (just a few Kinect Titles and some HD collections).

One game in particular was delayed, originally penned in to release on the 16th October; Bioshock Infinite. 2K is the publisher of Bioshock, and a subsidiary of Take-Two Interative, along with Rockstar Games. A very convenient coincidence.

It may just be wishful thinking, but I believe that Rockstar is wanting to keep things secret so they can cause a massive surprise with a sudden release date.

EDIT: GTA IV was also originally intended to release on 16/10/2007.

Whenever it is I cannot wait, each Grand Theft Auto has never disappointed me, reading about the new game has made me go back and play GTA IV again.

Drewbles

I still think Oct/Nov.

Its GTA, they could show nothing, not even a screenshot, any details, trailer etc and people would still go and buy it.

If it is being made for this gen and next, then next yr will be fine. It wont release purely on nextgen as no one owns nextgen and no one wants to have to buy a new console just for this.

Halo 4, BO2 etc are not competition. Hell maybe Rockstar are fed up of COD and wanna hurt the sales of those games by releasing the same day, I know which one i'd choose.

We saw a trailer in November, for all we know, the game could have been almost finished then. Screenshots and more to come soon, makes me feel like the advertising, the build up has begun for a huge 2012 release surprise.
