Rumour – GTA 5 release date leaked

1 min read


The  list of games coming out in the next month, is too damn high! But like any addicted gamer, it’s never enough, is it? Assassin’s Creed 3, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3, Need for Speed Most Wanted, these are just some of the titles out in a few weeks time. And we’re already looking to the future. Devil May Cry is out in January,Bioshock Infinite in February and Crysis 3 in March. So what about that other big-hitter, GTA 5 then? Looks like it finally has a date after all. With my wallet and Xbox that is.

Grand Theft Auto 5 pre-order persuader artwork has been leaked, with fan-site providing images of the promotional posters that suggests that players dig deep and “Pre-order now” for a “Spring 2013” arrival.


If that’s the American spring, that narrows the game down to arriving anywhere between Wednesday, 20 March , and Thursday, 20 June. According to weather science. Taking a look at the last three big game releases from developer Rockstar, could suggest another mid May release as well.

  • GTA IV – 29 April, 2008
  • Red Dead Redemption – May 18, 2010
  • Max Payne 3 – May 15, 2012

Sounds like a decent bet so far for a release window. Another interesting tidbit from the artwork though, is that the game is only arriving on PS3 and Xbox 360. Sorry PC Gamers, looks like you’ll be waiting for an enhanced edition, yet again.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
