GTA 5 Release Date Likely To Be Mid-to-Late 2012

Rockstar Games today announced Max Payne 3 will be launched in March, 2012. So? I hear you say... Well, it's unlikely that GTA 5 will be launched within a few months of Max Payne 3. With the advertising and marketing Rockstar tend to do for their games for months either side of their launch, it seems unlikely that two big games would be marketed simultaneously. Therefore we're probably looking at either late 2011, or mid-to-late 2012 for Grand Theft Auto V's launch.

Is it likely that GTA 5 could be announced and launched in the next 3 months? Probably not. Which would mean we'd probably be looking at summer 2012 or later for the launch of arguably the most anticipated game since GTA IV.

What do you think? Will we get a surprise announcement and launch before Christmas this year? Or does the Max Payne 3 news mean it could be another year before we get our hands on GTA V?

    The president of SONY Corp "Jack Tretton" said the PS3 has a 10yr life cycle, meaning the PS4 will come out in 2016, GTA5 should come out in 2018, which is 2yrs after the release of PS4, so im guessing in 2012 the new GTA game would most likely be San Andreas Stories!!!

    Personally I'd either like SA2, a next-gen London '69 remake or a city based around Liverpool.

    Plus the current consoles have plenty of life left.

    Fdgbh says... They would lose so much money if doin that bc alot of people have a ps3 and xbox 360 already so why put it on another game system that not as many people will have.
  • fdgbh (Guest) September 21, 2011
    the next xbox 360 and ps3 will may be came in 2014 and the new gta5 will come out in 2012 they will maybe wait for the next game system then gta5 will come out

    If you guys want an idea of what GTAV might look like, just look at "Midnight Club: Los Angeles South Central Edition"
