PC Version Date (Rumor)

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 08:33 PM CST | By Kodo
The Internet Movie Database is reporting that San Andreas will have a PC version date of May 15, 2005. The IMDB has been known to be a reliable site, but keep some doubt until this information comes directly from a Rockstar press release. Also note that their PS2 version is still listed as October 19th. We send thanks to Jasonlives for this piece of news. This news is a rumor if I haven't stated that enough already.

PHOENIXZERO points out that the 15th is a Sunday, when games do not ship, but the month is incorrect also. Following Take2's financial schedule would place the PC version of San Andreas around a year after the PS2 version, instead of the usual 6 months.

LMAO IMDB reliable?! Kodo the IMDB is anything BUT reliable especially with things that aren't officially announced. They accept submission from pretty much anyone who is a memeber and will post the info sent to them for things that are still in production and not released.

Oh yeah, and if that's not good enough for you, May 15th, 2005 is a SUNDAY!

I swear... You run one of the most popular GTA sites in the internet, you could at least take five seconds to make sure you're not posting crap that isn't true or just random BS speculation, that goes for certain other "reporters" on this site as well.

The ONLY confirmation on the GTA:SA PC release date is that it will be released in either May, June or July of next year so why don't you just leave it at that?!

And another thing, when Take-Two said the PC version would be released "third quarter" they meant in their FINANCIAL third quarter, not the actual calender third quarter.

Take-Two's financial quarters are like this:

1Q
November, December and January

2Q
February, March and April

3Q
May, June, July

4Q
August, September and October

Sorry Phoenix don't get so upset. From all my experience with IMDB it has been dead on. I didn't know some of the things you said about it.

NO, the month could be right. As PHOENIXZERO points out, the Q3 quote was their FINANCIAL QUARTER. That is Q2 in a regular ANNUAL QUARTER. Either may, june or july then. Considering both GTA III and Vice City was released in May on the PC, that's the most likely month.

hey pheonixzero, where did you get that info about their fiscal year?

the way i figured it was this: They released a report in september. They said it was a third quarter report. That would lead me to believe that their their third quarter either runs like a calendar year, or off by one month. and they did slate the game for a third quarter (don't remember if they said fiscal or calendar yeah) release date. chances are most places are basing their supposed release dates off that information.

but please, a source for that info if you would. i'm a little curious as to some more specifics regarding R* and take2's financial reports.

if one of the mods for this site sees this please answer. Do we have any idea when the official site will be updated? They said 'very soon' after the teaser sites were released, but that was ages ago. Do you have any idea?

Thank you

Well, wasn't the release date for the 22nd of Oct., then it got pushed back a week. So isn't it now at the 29th?

Either way, it's coming out in about six weeks, that's all that matters.

I read their press release and it said that their third quarter ended on July 31st and they said their fiscal year ends on October 31st..

http://ir.take2games.com/ReleaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=142901

And yeah, the problem with the IMDB is that their info is submitted by the members of the site, there was a big problem with it on their MGS3 page with people putting up voice actors that were total BS.

Umm, they're probably going to need several months just to convert it since the game was originally designed for the PS2. The wait won't be that much longer or might be the same as the wait for the last two PC versions of GTA.

Oh and another thing, can Neil now retract his "theory"? I just posted the press release regarding the PSTwo and its being shipped to sell in the US on November 1st (Monday for a Tuesday release). If you want to read it, go to the comments in Neil's post.

PS3 will not be out in 2005. The only even remotely rumored console to come out that year is the next Xbox. PS3 is slated (once again rumored but a highly credible rumor)

San Andreas will not be the last "great" game for the ps2 man...We have FFXII coming out, Metal Gear Solid 3, Gran Turismo 4, NFSU 2, Prince of Persia 2, and a bunch of other great games. It's worth the investment. I mean the compacted PS2 should be even cheaper.

Actually I know for sure now that it will be out on the 26th of October.

It's straight from Take2Games mouth. I went back into the news archives and found this GTAGaming news post for all of you guys...

Take2Games has today announced as part of its financial results that GTA: San Andreas will ship one week later than expected, to allow for final testing of the game.

The game will now be available on October 26th in North America and October 29th in Europe. It is not yet known if release dates will change for other territories, such as Australia/New Zealand, where the original release date was the 28th of October.

However, a small amount of good news comes in the form of a release date for the PC version of the game:

Additional products planned for fiscal 2005 from Rockstar Games include Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for PC in the third quarter, as well as two new console titles based on proven brands from Rockstar's internal studios, in the third and fourth quarters. Rockstar also plans to release Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in Japan in fiscal 2005.
-- Take2Games Third Quarter Financial Results, 9th September, 2004


We're not joking, unfortunately, so PS2 owners can expect to be playing this October, and PC gamers will be having the fun sometime in April, May or June 2005.

Update: To silence a few rumours, Take2Games just confirmed that the price of the game will be $49.95 in the USA. Preorder numbers are "significantly higher" than Vice City's numbers at the same time in 2002. The Game Boy Advance version of GTA will carry an "M" rating from ESRB in North America.
