Max Payne 3 release delayed; GTA V too?

Grand Theft Auto V - General News | @ 10:21 AM MDT | By victim

Given Rockstar's recent love-affair of delivering A-class titles in the April-May period, many fanboys were predicting GTA V to be hitting the shelves in one of those months. This speculation came mostly out of the fact that Rockstar had no games announced for a release in that window. This, however, is no longer true.

Rockstar bumped back the release of Max Payne 3, another extremely popular franchise, from it's original March release to a new May one. Max Payne 3 is now scheduled to release on Xbox 360 and PS3 on May 15th, with a PC version also coming later that month.
Strauss Zelnick, Take 2 CEO
"With Max Payne 3 now slated for May, our robust lineup of upcoming releases for fiscal 2013 is even stronger, including BioShock Infinite, Borderlands 2, Spec Ops: The Line, XCOM, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and other titles yet to be announced for release that year."

Whether this has affected GTA V at all is quite doubtful, though it certainly silences all of the hopeful speculation that the game may be in our hands early. When GTA V's release date is official, you'll hear it from us first.

I'd predict GTA V release around 2013 at the earliest. Stop shitting into your pants too early.

I'm going to just come out and say this, the stupid 2405 theory was weak anyway, I can't believe some people out there believed it! And now people are complaining because their weak little theory which barely had any ground has now been torn apart.

Max Payne 3 I don't have high hopes for judging from the videos I saw

GTA 5 is going to be awesome though.

Actually the Tech video of Max Payne 3 was awesome. It made the game look really good.

Edit: Also, I just kind of thought about it. This has affected GTA V in a way, as it's my opinion that we won't be seeing any new information until this has released.
