Grand Theft Auto V Pre-Order Receipt Sparks Speculation
We keep hoping Grand Theft Auto V will be announced and detailed soon but for now, we have to rely on rumors.
As reported by GamerZines, GTAV has popped up at Gamestation, which is part of the UK's largest game retailer, the GAME Group. The listing has since been removed but they have a picture of a pre-order receipt; you can't pre-order games until the retailer has a date in the system. Of course, those dates are often placeholders simply for the sake of accumulating as many pre-orders as possible, but still...
The game has apparently shown up at other retailers as well; it was briefly on GameStop's Germany branch with a January 15, 2012 release, but that too is now gone. Right now, analysts are saying GTAV should be here during the first quarter of next year, and let's remember that GTAIV launched in April of 2008. Many fans will say we're overdue for the GTAV announcement. But can you imagine if Rockstar dropped a bomb and released it in December, or something?
