Exclamation GTA V Leaked release date?!

Hi,

I'm new to this site, but I've noticed something quite cool.
A Ducth internetshop site has a product called GTA V, set to release on the 24th of March in 2013. It says "beschikbaar 24/04/2013" which translates to "Available 4/24/2013", trust me I'm Dutch. It just striked mee that this hasn't been officially announced yet! I don't know how to insert an image from my PC, but I have made a PrintScreen of the release date, for those how are interested.

Greetings,

Robert

Welcome to GTAGaming!

Typically, companies just put a placeholder date in their systems when adding the game. A bunch of other retailers have different and varied release dates filed right now, spanning from March 2012 - March 2013.

There's a good chance this site means nothing. But, it's nice speculation nonetheless. I hope that the game doesn't take that long to come out though!

Very unlikely they'll aim for 2013, most likely a fall 2012.

I'm sceptical as to whether Rockstar would announce it yet if it was indeed coming any later than October, 2012. That said, Rockstar have proven in the past they can market games exceptionally well in 6-month time frames.

Look at it this way, it's not like they have to really market Grand Theft Auto at all. I'm staying hopefully to a release in April or May of next year (I'm probably being way too hopeful though).

Yeah, it would suck cock if it took that long to come out, it looks pretty fucking good already... Though it is likely still in pretty early development, though, exactly how much time have they really put into it these past few years?

edit: I am in the same boat as Victim.

Would be so cool if R* is pretty much done with the game and surprises ud with a new trailer this weekend which shows the realease date: December 2012. Very unrealistic though.

Would be really cool if they released the game in December. Very unrealistic though.

GTA games have always been released in October. I doubt they would change that now. Well besides gta 4, but if that means gta 5 is coming around that same time frame then thats even better.

Well, you are forgetting IV, in which case I envy you, I wish I could completely forget about IV, which was released in April 08'. Though its original release was set for October 07'.

Every major release has come in April since IV, so to me it looks like Rockstar have adjusted their release frame based on the sales of that. Max Payne is coming in March, which would give them two-three months to successfully market V separately. Seems kind of likely.

The only thing about this though is that is V was coming that soon, it would be something they could show in the trailer. To me, it kind of seems like there is no release planned at this stage or they are just covering up the release to avoid a future delay, like what happened with IV.

I feel like it going to be at least 1/2 a year from now when it will be released.

I highly doubt this will be released that late. 2013 seems too far away for them to release a trailer now. Gotta remember that this game was in development right before GTA IV's release, so I'd say it's definitely a 2012 date. Only thing I'm kind of disappointed (for lack of a better word) about, is that it doesn't seem to use the same engine as the canned PS3 exclusive "Eight Days".

I read an article a while back where they stated that the main guy who worked on Eight Days left to join Rockstar in late 08 (right after GTA IV release) and were speculating that they may use the same engine. Was more wishful thinking than anything, but it woulda been awesome nonetheless. If you don't know what I'm talking about, look it up on YouTube, there's a few videos.
