German GameStop Lists GTA 5 (Again)

Posted by TreeFitty July 29, 2011 : 11 Comments : 8,435 Views

Back in April we reported that GameStop Germany had listed "GTA 5" on its website but took it down shortly after. They have now put it back up for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Last time it was listed with a January 15th, 2012 release date but this time it is listed as "unknown".

Aside from the release date, all the other information given is the same. Same URLs, same description. Only thing new is the fan-created Grand Theft Auto V logo for the picture. Check it out for yourself: [PlayStation 3] [Xbox 360] or have a look here:

Here's a re-write from our previous article. The description given (translated):
Description
Rockstar has now been moved first official information about GTA V! In an interview with the Times, said Dan Houser, that is already working on the fifth GTA. But before the characters are created, the developers take care of the city, will play in the round. Houser is also co-wrote the screenplay for the plot, which will comprise about 1,000 pages.

Conditions
No precise information available

Analysis

  • The fact that GameStop titled it "GTA 5" instead of a more proper name such as "Grand Theft Auto 5" doesn't seem right in the first place.
  • The description doesn't say much about the actual game. It is just a rehash of what we've already heard from a single source.
  • The listing was taken down after a day. Companies have previously put "unconfirmed" games on their sites in order to attract customers early. It is very possible they were doing the same until a higher authority wanted the rubbish post removed.
So there you have it (again). Will it stay up this time? Does GameStop really know if GTA 5 is coming? Or just another marketing ploy (again)? Let us know in the comments below and join the chat in the forums!

Thanks to our friends at RockstarSpy for the heads-up!

    Interesting. I think they got confused with Max Payne 3, which will release in March. Will be interesting if MP3 comes out on the 18th (or around there since 18 is a Sunday).

    I agree. There is nothing true or usefull on that page. The only web page when you can realy see information is Rockstar games web page. But there is nothing new there.

    It keeps getting re-posted because GameStop keeps putting it up. I don't see this as any confirmation of anything except GS taking people's money early. As I said to Marney, the guy who actually paid for a pre-order is nuts.

    I don't think there has been any useful or true news on the rumor pages. Nobody found anything good realy.
    At the end GTA will be release at 2015. Who knows.
    But now I have GTAIV:SA mod. It's so good.
