Rockstar: We'll Start Talking About GTAV "In A Few Months"
It's arguably the biggest release of 2012 and long-time fans only have one question: when?
Rumors regarding the Grand Theft Auto V launch date have been swirling ever since the game was officially unveiled last year. Early evidence said the hotly anticipated title would arrive in May, but more recent evidence points towards a fall release date. Besides, with Max Payne 3 now scheduled for May, it's unlikely that Take-Two would launch GTAV in the same month. That's what analysts call "cannibalization."
Rockstar hasn't made anything official yet, either, but they answered the popular question in a new Q&A at the developer's blog:
"Right now, we are very hard at work on the game and are excited as well to show and tell you more as development progresses - expect that we'll be talking much more about GTAV starting at some point in a few months’ time."
Feel free to interpret that any way you wish; personally, I'd like to think the information and details will start to flow in April and May, with a slated September/October release window. Also, make sure to read up on Rockstar's Max Payne 3 info; they address questions that involve the all-important shooting mechanics, for instance.
