Rumor: GTAV Launches On Five-Year Anniversary Of GTAIV

Update: So Rockstar has confirmed that GTAV is set for Spring 2013, although there is no exact date.

Retailers will start taking pre-orders on November 5 so get ready!

Original Story:

We're still not exactly sure when Grand Theft Auto V will arrive, but recent evidence has hinted at a Spring 2013 release.

First we got promotional posters spotted by a Polish fansite and now, UK retailer GAME may have inadvertently confirmed that estimated launch window. Let's hope!

As noted by IGN, an update on the retailer's Twitter page (since removed) said- "Pre-Order Now Spring 2013," with all sorts of GTAV artwork plastered behind the announcement. But in addition, we have a whisper from a source supposedly close to Rockstar, who has told us that GTAV will launch exactly five years after GTAIV. That would put the release in late April; GTAIV launched on April 29, and April 30, 2013 is a Tuesday, so... It also certainly qualifies as "Spring 2013," so the information could be accurate.

But as with all rumors from such sources, please do take this with a grain of salt. We just hope we get the official word from Take-Two/Rockstar in a few weeks time. They said November, after all.

Their website. They also announced the platforms (for that date) PS3 and 360.

A bit off topic but when trying to upload an avatar, I get 'Internal Server Error'. Any ideas?

I have made several attempts myself too, using different files (all jpegs though) and even on different computers to no avail. So I understand what you're experiencing, though I do not understand why. I guess I should have left my previous avatar be, but I thought I'd change it to another werewolf / wolf, but now I'm without avatar for now...

I don't think people are as excited about a new GTA as you might think. I say this because on many other boards I've been checking out surrounding this news, there's a lot of people didn't find GTA4 all that much fun since it was too real world and not enough fun in their opinions (I'm on the fence myself).

Needless to say that Saints Row up'd their game alot and people seem to find that more fun then GTA. So you might disagree but it's possible that 5yrs ago GTA was King but Saints Row gave the fans what they wanted GTA4 to be and unless Rockstar turn out something more 'fun', I'm not sure that GTA has the same dominance in the market it once held.

I'm more of a casual fan of GTA, but I definitely find the series very entertaining (my first GTA was Vice City haha).

Like GTA4, I'm gonna wait out for the "GT5 Complete Edition" or something similar as I already know Rockstar is gonna have lots (of good) of DLC released for it.

at least this gets rid of those stupid march rumours!
makes you wonder though, was the game ever set for march or earlier?
why would of 2K set such lofty stats if they knew V would never launch in that window?

I just hope that they bring back what made San Andreas fun and what made GTA4 a great story, rather than compromising one for the other.
p.s. FIX the avatar uploading system!!!!
