    Grand Theft Auto 5 Release Date Is March 9th?



    Much to
    Grand Theft Auto fans' dismay, the fifth installment in the open-world crime series might not arrive in 2012. The latest issue of PSM3 states that the game will launch early next year.

    The May issue of PSM3 (via GTAForums) pegs GTA 5's release date as March 9th. They don't frame it as a rumor.

    March 9th is actually a Saturday next year. It would be an unusual day to release a game. Most games hit stores on Tuesdays (in North America) or Fridays (in Europe). Still, I suppose GTA 5 is such a high-profile game that they could release it whenever they damn well please and it'll sell millions.

    A March release date would fit with an recent prediction by a Sterne Agee analyst. However, it would directly contradiction a Rockstar employee resume that mentioned an October launch. I guess it comes down to which iffy source of information you prefer.

    GTA 5 will bring the series back to Los Santos, the fictional Los Angeles equivalent seen in GTA San Andreas. Rockstar has kept a tight lid on other information about the game thus far. It seems hard to believe that they'd let something as important as a release date slip out, but stranger things have happened.

    This is interesting indeed. They don't frame it as a rumor, but few games every come out on Saturdays, so they could be mistaken.

    On the other hand, usually games that are giving a general time frame wind up getting "release dates" of the last day of the month, like January 31 or March 31 until the formal release date is set. This says the 9th, which is specific, and may indicate some amount of inside knowledge.

    to see this game next year. Already too many good games coming out this year...plus that gives the devs more time to make it an even better masterpiece.

    Next year works fine for me. If the game does come out this fall then I probably wouldn't buy it for a few months.

    If it's true, although it kinda sucks to not have it this year, there are so many other good games already coming out in October that this *delay* can give us some time to enjoy them all LOL

    This is so true, but why?

    I was already figuring GTA V would released next year. Also not buying into any release date until it's Rockstar setting the date.

    You mean Los Santos, which was in San Andreas.

    Nice that it'll be released next year. More time for Borderlands 2 and Bioshock Infinite.

    It's going to get released on that date. Maybe on the same week or the next week, but not that day. I guarantee you it won't.

    If it does, then punch me in the mouth.
