That's a period of 4 months, not a release date.

"Confirmed". You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

Maybe we will get pieces of the storyline via the internet over a period of 60 days? Have you not considered this as a valid possibility?

That's why I used the word "Almost".
This is one of the closest things related to release date I've seen so far.

Retailers have been putting placeholder release dates on their pre-order pages for GTA V pretty much since it was announced. This isn't any different. It might even be worse, since at least those other retailers managed to pull an actual date out of thin air rather than a period of two months.
I'm just going to repeat what I said in the last thread: don't believe anything that doesn't come directly from Rockstar.

By the way, there's no such thing as "almost confirmed". Either something is confirmed, or it isn't. The very definition of the word is that there can't be doubt.

Almost confirmed would be Rockstar saying they're going to announce the release date in x number of days.

We got different opinions regarding this clearly, so just let it stay at that.

It's just kind of annoying to see a thread that claims to have an indication of the game's release date, and it turns out it's just more speculation.

I'm with ZCAB on this one. At the end of the day I don't think a retailer is any more clued up on release dates than the average consumer. They may find out maybe a month (at best) quicker than the consumer. Also the writing on that isn't quite clear, the way I interpret the writing on the receipt is that you can use the receipt in that period of time, not necessarily a release date of the game itself.

So can we at least rule out that it'll be out by the end of this year?

Futureshop/Gamestop/any retailer has NO inside information whatsoever.

They're probably just guessing given Take Two's stock projections.

Most likely, yes. If they were going to release it by the end of the year, they'd have given us a release date by now. They'll want about a 6 month lead time to prep retailers and build hype.

I'm calling it now. Expect release in spring/summer 2013 with a release date announcement at CES early next year.

(NOTE: I have no inside information or clue what's going on. This is just an educated guess)

They'll just announce it on their own.

Rockstar gives zero fucks about trade shows.

My guess is they'll announce the release date alongside trailer 2 in October.
