(or 09/2/2012 I'm not sure) 

A release of February? That seems way too soon for a game like GTA in my opinion. Considering most of the trailer was CG I doubt it is anywhere near a release state.
 
Thoughts?

Maybe it's me being American but I'm use to the day before the month. 
To be honest your guess seems a lot more likely to come true.

I hope it comes out around then but then when you apply common sense...

It'd be insane and cool if the game actually came out in February though.

I'm betting on a late summer release at the earliest.

@Twitchey: what makes you think the trailer was CGI?.... oh and that´s all in-game footage Rockstar did their job.

I'm American as well, but the $ sign hints that they might do the date the other way around there.

a game that's announced and then very quickly comes out is the sign of a bad game.

Considering their PR cycles for LA Noire and Red Dead Redemption, and that GTA IV came out in April, I wouldn't be surprised about an early 2012 release.

September seems possible, but no way it's February.

Also, that was all in engine. Don't be stupid. RockStar never puts out pre-rendered footage. Also, that footage didn't look pre-rendered at all. Have you seen any pre-rendered footage from a game in the last few years? It looks way better than that stuff.

It shouldn't be. I wish more studios would do that.

How could you possibly think that was a CGI trailer?

For reference, this is a CGI trailer:

Edit: And the image you supply is from an online retailer I presume? They have to apply some sort of release date so they can take pre-orders. I wouldn't place any kind of confidence in it.

Those dates are just placeholders for webshops. They can't propably leave the field blank, so fill in just a random date. I've seen other webshops with other dates.

No way that GTA 5 releases this february, it will take at least another 10 months.

I'm concerned that no-one in this thread knows what the fuck is going on.

It'll be out at the end of a Rockstar fiscal quarter. Likely either mid-late October or late April/early May. As for the year, 2013.
 
I wonder if Agent got shitcanned. Jack Tretton basically said it's not a PS3 exclusive anymore to Geoff Keighley during E3, but that might mean cancellation. I certainly hope not.

That's 02/09, as in the 2nd of September.

Uhh... yeah, swap the 9 and 2 as people have said, dumbass. The site is obviously UK-based since the pricing is in pounds so they don't use our frankly dumb date method.

Did anyone else misread the title and think the game itself had been leaked?

I can't imagine it would come out in February but who knows? If anyone could pull it off, Rockstar would be one of my choices.

When has Rockstar ever put out a trailer that was mostly CG? The answer is never btw...

None of the GTA games have ever used CGI for cut-scenes and trailers. Hell, GTA 2 had a live-action intro.

hey if its 9/2 wii u release is more then possible! at least one new console gets it ,

if they do ,

it be really smart for rockstar to work on the wii u with gta v ,

get some people interisted in the new platform already ,

a 3 way launch also would be good more the marrier ,

but i doubt that is the actual date, ,

ill wait for an official statement , but remember gta iv was delayed a few times in its cycle , so even then im skeptical
