Leaked magazine cover reveals GTA V out in October?

This seems plausible..

Likely just the magazine has an article on one of those Pachter analyst comments or whatever to get sales. Notice the quotation marks? Don't believe anything until Rockstar says it themselves.

They managed to find a source with less credibility than Michael Pachter. What a joke.

The low-quality renders on that page make me think this is a fake. But then again, if some one were to fake this, they would likely add more juicy "details".

It's not fake, but that doesn't matter anyways. It's an independent magazine without any new official info.

I'm only listening to Rockstar at this point, and the only thing they've said twice(resumes), is October 2012. I also don't think the "Oct" on the car's license plate in the debut trailer was an accident either.

What sort of magazine uses a quote from a random store employee as news. Cover story news at that.

With E3 this week, how did they not manage to find some other news to fill in a space?


If GTA V is coming in October, that's going to be an expensive month for gamers.

I feel like they'd want more time build up hype, 4 months isnt a very long time frame between release date announcement/previews to release.

They could wait until a week before release and they would still probably break records. Rockstar doesn't need to build up hype for GTA. Some of the past GTA games didn't have a trailer until August, so it's definitely possible GTA V is on schedule to come out in October.

Well not many people actually keep up with GTA or video game news in general so marketing needs time to get the word out that way people can start finding out and preordering it. While it is GTA and for many people that's all they need to hear to throw money down on the game they still need time to build hype and spread the word. Reveals in the gaming industry are expertly timed (or at least they try to be) to gain maximum effect on release which is when most games make a majority of their sales.

I still find it very unlikely we'll get the game in October. It's only about 3 months away now so that's not nearly enough time to show off the game to the press so that the press can write about it and drum up more hype.

Yeah, but what you're talking about might apply to other games, but not GTA. The last time Rockstar built up hype for GTA was for GTA III's release. And just like you said, "reveals in the gaming industry are expertly timed". Rockstar does things a certain way, and it's been working for them. GTA IV was delayed, so it's schedule was a little messed up, but the other GTA's always had very little marketing in spring and summer before the inevitable October release.

It's incredibly easy to get the word out to those who don't follow gaming news, and we know this because we usually don't start seeing TV ads for games until right before the game comes out. In fact, I've never seen a GTA ad on TV until after I had the game. And GTA doesn't make anywhere near a majority of it's sales on release. This is another reason why you can't compare GTA to other games, unless you're talking about games like COD or Gears when it comes to numbers. Thousands of copies of GTA IV are still being sold every week.

Believing it comes out this year is just wishful thinking and I personally think It will certainly not be out before march next year. Maybe in April (like gta 4)

I don't really needs news updates, just a release date is enough. I'm gonna buy it anyhow and more news means more spoilers. It's better to know as little as possible, come on it's a gta game.. you don't need trailers to tell you what a good game it'll be.
