""Its official Rockstar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released "this holiday". By Rockstar Games saying "This holiday", I'm guessing it means between October and January. There will be a collectors edition which will feature a steal box, a strategy guide and some hand drawn artwork, also a DVD that takes you into a glimpse of Rockstars studios in New York. The game will have 2 discs. One for single player and another for multiplayer. There will not be a playable demo for GTA 5. ""

im surprised every where i look online theres zero news of this. anyway, it's out this year, yeayy!

thats not a valid source.

Never even heard of this site before so I have to take this "confirmation" with a grain of salt. Still, holiday wouldn't surprise me. Hope it turns out to be true.

"I'm guessing it means between October and January." Cute. That's not a release date or a viable source. I'm guessing the new consoles will come out between October and November next year but you don't see my blog on the forums do you?

GTA games have always come out in October so it's not a huge stretch to think that their newest title would come out this October as well - seeing as next year seems a bit late for such a large franchise to be making a debut when new consoles are right around the corner.

Yeah and also RockStar's studios aren't in New York.... flag as spam

#8 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

If this was confirmed, every gaming blog/website would be posting it as a top story immediately, regardless of the time of day.

It's not been posted anywhere else, because it's not true.

#9 Posted by JoeyRavn (4983 posts) -

So, by "confirmed" you mean "between October and January"? And if it comes out in January, will it still count as "this year"?

Looks legit.

Rockstar are all about releasing informantion themselves. If there was an announcement it would be on their website, not on some random blog that no one has ever heard of.

#11 Edited by CptBedlam (4458 posts) -

Random blogger from Finland is the first to know... totally credible, of course. *sigh*

#12 Posted by Incapability (216 posts) -

"Confirmed release date" relating to no date in particular, a wonderful "steal" box, and no credible sources? I think we have a winner, gentlemen!

Isn't Rockstar North in Edinburgh? Isn't blogspot in that domain name? Should we even trust this?

(Yes, yes, no)

WTF? GTA4 came out in April or something. Pretty sure every Rockstar game since then has come out in spring at that.

#16 Posted by probablytuna (3824 posts) -

Still no confirmed release date.

#17 Posted by IBurningStar (2190 posts) -

Not a credible source, therefor I do not believe it.

#18 Posted by CptBedlam (4458 posts) -

@SpartanHoplite: What the hell? You even put that in the wiki? Please check your sources next time.

#19 Posted by DeF (4979 posts) -

LOL

#20 Posted by Humanity (10110 posts) -

@MideonNViscera: Well my bad, every GTA came UP TO GTA4 had come out around October. GTA3, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas all had october release dates and for some reason I remembered GTA4 coming out around my birthday which is in October but I guess I must have mistaken it for some other game.

@MideonNViscera: I'm pretty sure May is Rockstar's month rather than April, could be wrong but then again its been ages since a GTA came out.

Ha ! Ha ! Baffling how that could get approved. I bet one mod is sorry for this disaster.

FALSE. ROCKSTAR ARE A CANADIAN COMPANY WHO WORK FROM A SECRET SATELLITE IN SPACE.

#24 Posted by dropabombonit (1492 posts) -

Rockstar since GTA4 have brought games out around April/May so I suspect the same for GTAV

#25 Edited by Smashlampjaw (220 posts) -

I want to BELIEVE!!! (but thats one ghetto site.)

#26 Posted by Phyrlord (171 posts) -

Based on what we have seen I would put money down that it is a launch title for next gen. I feel like it would be nothing but smart to put it on next gen.

#27 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11406 posts) -

No. They'll say March of next year, then delay it to May. Just like with GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire, and Max Payne 3.

#28 Posted by Timing (624 posts) -

Well. This thread turned out a lot funnier than I expected.

#29 Posted by AndrewB (7691 posts) -

Eh. Everyone beat me to it. November somethingorother would be a release date. But please don't give me another game to think about buying in November. My November is already booked.

#30 Posted by CaLe (4054 posts) -

I bet the OP is also a conspiracy theory nut. I'd bet at least fifty dolla.

#31 Posted by Binman88 (3691 posts) -

Steal box.

#32 Posted by ShaggE (6710 posts) -

I asked my dog what the release month for Saints Row 4 is, and he whimpered twice! February confirmed!

#33 Posted by VierasTalo (935 posts) -

I'm pretty sure the OP might just be doing this to promote that shoddy website in the first post.

Rockstar always has a tendency to release their games in the Spring season; April-May. GTA 4, Red Dead, L.A. Noire, Max Payne 3.

Don't see why GTA 5 would be any different.

#35 Posted by laserbolts (5368 posts) -

I don't know what's more sad the OP or the mod that approved that wiki edit.

#36 Edited by Wacomole (836 posts) -

If Rockstar's PR don't use the incredibly apt "Steal Box" as a descriptor for the container of their Collector's Edition, then there is no justice in the world.

But yeah, either this is the scoop of the decade or (as the more obvious "if it walks like a duck..." option) it's just purely page-view-generating idle speculation.

Also, apparently there's a Take 2 conference going on today in which we may hear some more info, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

#37 Posted by Clonedzero (4196 posts) -

this isn't legit at all.

i think it'd be cool if rockstar was like "sup, its out in like 2 weeks, GET PUMPED" just out of no where, i dont think they'd do that, cus well im no business expert, but i'd imagine that'd be a bad business move. still, it'd be awesome.

#38 Posted by MightyDuck (1524 posts) -

Well shucks, I got my hopes up upon entering this thread.

#39 Posted by Yummylee (22568 posts) -

BLAMMMMMMMMMM THIS PIECE OF CRAP

#40 Posted by Demoskinos (15156 posts) -

If this was real they would be opening up the gates on pre-orders. Not saying you can't pre-order already (I'm sure gamestop will gladly take your money) but they would want to bump those numbers up by advertising it a lot more.

#41 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

What a scoop!

I vote for the latter.

#42 Posted by Trace (3577 posts) -

Wellp, since that evidence is about as far from confirmed as you can get, I really don't see any reason for this misleading thread to continue.
