GTA 5: GameStop publishes March release date

Thursday, 11th October 2012 11:52 GMT By Dave Cook

GTA 5 has been given a placeholder release date by GameStop. The American retail giant has its sights set on a March 2013 release. It’s still anyone’s guess mind you.

OXM reports that GameStop’s online store has GTA 5 slated for a March 1st 2013 release.

Here’s a grab:

This isn’t the first run of placeholder release dates given to GTA 5, and it probably won’t be the last. When do you think it might come out? Let us know below.

    Take Two is expecting about 650 million from Rockstar before the end of March, that can’t be done with older game sales and can only mean one title…GTA V. October 30th there will be a conference call and its going to be interesting to see if their financial predictions are going to change or not at all. I doubt we’ll hear anything significant on GTA V though. Oh boy how awesome it would be when that ‘TBA’ finally is removed and we get a release date.

    Just a heads up for the folks dying for a GTA V update, and i know i am. On the forums of the moderator is teasing something. He knows all too well how people on the forum are desperate for anything GTA V and he keeps saying it won’t be long now anymore and he says he’s not messing with us.

    I agree. Unless a retailer gives an unusually specific date (ie a weekday that’s not at the start or end of a month, or time period), it shouldn’t be covered.

    Of course man, right here, and pay attention to the guy named Adriaan. He’s not known there for trolling, let alone he’s a mod there, lol.

    Ah i got ninja’ed..haha.

    Oh and user Deffpony there, also not known for trolling at all. A friend of his works at Avalanche Studios and he had spoken to a Rockstar employee, guy from Avalanche asked what took them so long to release more screenshots..since they promised them last August..and the Rockstar guy said to keep paying attention to the Rockstar Newswire page.

    My money is already on April/May 2013, though I can’t wait for it to not be released on PC, be announced 2 months later for September and pushed to November.
