Grand Theft Auto V Retail Item Round-Up

Posted by TreeFitty November 01, 2012 : 37 Comments : 35,360 Views

Quick note: As this is being typed, more and more pictures keep coming in. We'll try to keep this updated.

Where do we begin? How about the first artwork to be leaked out... About a week ago on October 27th a photo of a supposed GTA V retail item was posted online and spread like wildfire. The image showed multiple artworks on a single piece of paper including the first official artwork and a thug with a baseball bat holding back a mean-looking rottweiler. We here at were skeptical as usual for various reasons but even if it was fan art it would have been awesome fan art. The PC logo was noticeably absent. The other major thing about these images was the "Spring 2013" release date - something we had begun to expect at that point:

Not too long after that on October 30th, more photos of supposed GTA V promotional items with new artworks were leaked out. They showed a female cop arresting another female, a man with a big gun on an ATV, and the first official artwork again:

Later on the 30th Rockstar Games finally confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V would release in Spring 2013 and confirmed that they were focused on the console versions of the game - leaving many PC fans wondering what would become of a PC version.

Since then more and more photos of promotional items have been making their way online. The first customers to pre-order GTA V on November 5th can expect to get their hands on picture viewers featuring exclusive screenshots:

The previous artworks have also been shown as temporary box arts on disc cases:

Game Informer, whose GTA V preview is coming on November 8th, has also released high resolution versions of the thug and female cop artworks:

Now, the real icing on the cake is this letter that seems to be coming with all of these promotional items:

So the question is: Will there be a GTA V Trailer #2 tomorrow? It will be one whole year since the first trailer released...

UPDATE: Rockstar Games has confirmed on the newswire that Hurricane Sandy has caused a power outage at their NYC office. This has delayed trailer #2:

The pictures continue to be posted in the Grand Theft Auto 5 forums! Join the discussions! Big thanks to our forum members for finding pics and even taking their own!

    You have to go to your local retail or game store to pre-order. The stores are the ones with the posters and other items.

    ...From my last comment: Before I read that letter from the article about the retail item roundup, I never knew they were planning to release a 2nd trailer. They never said anything about b4 they posted the article on Nov. 1st. When I saw that Sandy delayed it, that's when I found out about the new trailer. All I know is, I'm delighted to know they had one planned for us. Just cant wait to see it now.

    Oh no~~~
    The 2nd Trailer~~

    So now, since Sandy has been gone, it should be come out soon, right?
    Can not wait for it!
