Possible Leaked Release Date?

Hey, was browsing websites for games to buy and then i stumbled across this GTA 5 page which featured a release date of November 23rd 2012, could this be a leaked date or is it just a made up loada crap?

It's just an educated guess. Websites do it all of the time, to allow pre-orders to be taken.

As I stated in another thread; Play.com once listed Hitman: Absolution as Hitman 5, with a release date of May 2013. This was 2 years ago, before much information was available about the title.

Also, Zavvi and The Hut are basically one and the same. They are sister sites that use the same stock (think PC World and Curry's).

It's just a random date they choose. My best bet would be October 23, 2012. All GTA games release in October, with the exception of GTA IV, because it was delayed.

I wouldn't count on the date I got excited over it earlier, real date could be around it though that's my best guess.

Well, I don't think they'll release it in late winter/spring because "Max Payne 3" comes out then. I'd think they would want to make as much profit as possible from that game and within that time frame.

Still, I'm sticking with 23/10/2012!

I still prefer the "L.A. Noire" theory, that the first Noire trailer was out in Nov of 2010, and then released in May. Maybe the same would happen with V even if it's not as likely. Either way as long as it releases in 2012 I am a happy camper.

Well, see, they had no other game releasing in that time period, but this time it's different. Max Payne 3 will be releasing in March 2012. Not to mention other competition (well, sorta) from other games, such as Mass Effect 3 and BioShock Infinite! The game will definitely be released in 2012! Of course...no, never mind, I won't think negative!

I am guessing either late November or early December...when it comes out I want to come back to this post and see who guessed the closest.

I think Vice City came out the first week of November. I also have GTAV pegged for Oct. 23 or Oct. 30. Both fall on a Tuesday which is the day most games (Skyrim came out on a Friday) are released in America.
Maybe R* will follow suit and release GTAV on the same day of the week worldwide like Skyrim.
