Grand Theft Auto 5 release date revealed!
Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the most eagerly anticipated games of this console generation – and it may also be the last one before we move on to the Xbox 720 and PS4.The creators at Rockstar Games have been keeping mum on a launch date, but today the company founder revealed when we’ll be able to cause chaos in San Andreas.
Ahead of publisher Take-Two’s quarterly earnings call today, Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser revealed that Grand Theft Auto 5 is currently being targeted for a spring 2013 launch, in keeping with Rockstar’s typical timetable: the company tends to release one blockbuster console game every year in spring or early summer. “Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we’ve learned about open world game design. We can’t wait to share it with fans,” he said.
So far, little is known about Grand Theft Auto 5, but an initial trailer and subsequent screenshots have confirmed that the game will be set once again in the fictional city of San Andreas, based on real world Los Angeles.
What antics you’ll be able to get up to are still unclear, but Rockstar loves to court controversy, so don’t be shocked if they turn out to be shocking. We’ll have more for you on Grand Theft Auto 5 as soon as we get it.
