UPDATE: Take-Two Confirms GTA V’s Spring 2013 Release
A few minutes ago, Take-Two Interactive confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V will, in fact, be coming out in the spring for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. In addition, pre-orders will begin on November 5.
Said Rockstar founder Sam Houser:
“Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we’ve learned about open world game design. We can’t wait to share it with fans.”
Now…when in spring? That’s the next question.
Some images of alleged promo art for Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V have been swirling around the internet the last few days, and we’re no exception: one of our own posts about the game from last week had a commenter drop some links to the images you see above and below this paragraph, which say that the game will drop in Spring 2013.
Today, reports are saying that the promos below this paragraph come from UK video game retailer GAME in Brighton. The PEGI 18 rating on the art seems to corroborate the source, or at least help to confirm that it originates in Europe.
Either way, this is pretty interesting stuff. It still leaves room for the game to come out in March, which would confirm the speculation about the game’s as-yet unannounced release date. That would put it within Take-Two’s current fiscal year, and would sure make shareholders happy.
We’ll update if more information comes out. Stay tuned.
