This is ridiculous 5 years is a little too long for them to take especially since its in a location they have already successful made you would think with their success and large income from la noire and red dead they could at least take care putting out their marquee game in a reasonable amount of time, this sounds more like we want to compete with cod and november releases. the major issue i see happening is that this may mean their switch on the fly as you like system is faulty. with the generation coming to a close they might just delay it and bring it out for the new systems hope not. also I dont like Alex telling us to shut up not cool.
Are you a game developer? Do you know what it takes to create a game world as big and detailed as this will be (especially with Rockstar's standards)? How can you say it's been too long unless you're in the grind everyday working on this game? Jesus, have some patience.
