Grand Theft Auto V Release Window Leaked
A release window of Spring 2013 for Grand Theft Auto V has been leaked thanks to an image of a European poster for the game.
Publisher Rockstar has yet to confirm or deny this date but the company did announce that more information would be made available about the title next month. The game was announced a year ago this past week and a demo was released to news outlets earlier this month but a release date has yet to be announced.
The leak image does not specify whether the date is for a global release or solely for European markets. Rockstar previously released its predecessor Grand Theft Auto IV simultaneously in western markets but waited six months afterward to release it in Japan. The poster does list the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as platforms, which suggests no Wii U version.
Details on the game have also been scarce and have comprised mostly of screenshots of cars and landscapes. What is known is the game will take place in the fictionalized version of Los Angeles called Los Santos, and will utilize the Crews system for multiplayer introduced in Max Payne 3.
We haven’t heard much about Grand Theft Auto V which led me to believe that the game wouldn’t be released until over a year from now and possibly on next gen consoles. However, with this news that the game may be coming next year, I have to wonder whether we know enough about the game to get excited.
I personally have the not popular opinion of thinking Grand Theft Auto IV was not a fun game so I am cautious about this new game. Still I’m willing to give it a try, based mostly on the name alone. What do you think? Are you excited for Grand Theft Auto V? Is your excitement solely on the name of the franchise? Comment below and let us know!
