GTA 5 might be coming in early 2012. Rumor has it that Rockstar Games might announce GTA 5 at the E3 this year, even thou actor Gilbert Gottfried has inofficially already announced it via Twitter ;)
We reported it earlier this year, GTA 5 was already available for preorder, but that was probably only a marketing coup by Swedish online retailer Webhallen to get some attention, but who knows, maybe we’ll really get a late 2011 GTA 5 release date.
GTA – One Of The Most Successful Gaming Franchises
There are so many rumors surrounding the new Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 computer game, it’s pretty awesome. But there are some things about GTA that are not rumored. GTA is one of the oldest and most established computer games on the market – a game franchise that is the wet dream of every publisher. Founded in the United Kingdom by Dave Jones, Dan Houser and Sam Houser, GTA is one of the most sold games ever: total game sales are over 28 million. The game is produced by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games.
All of the games in the GTA series revolve around the steeling or theft of cars and accomplishing tasks. The object is usually the same, not to be arrested by the police or beat up by thugs and gangsters. All of the GTA games are set in a major US city. This new release, GTA 5, is supposedly scheduled to be released no later than 2012. There are many rumors surrounding the new release, and of course many whistle-blowers claim they know what city the game will play in.
Will it be LA?
Rockstar Games Preparing GTA 5 Websites?
Rockstar Games registered the following domains CashForDeadDreams.com, SixFigureTemps.com, StopPayingYourMortgage.net, HammersteinFaust.com, and LifeInvader.com
Could this be a first hint at the GTA 5 story? And yes, I agree, you better stop paying your mortgage, because you need it for GTA 5, it’s going to cost a million dollars only to get access ;)
GTA 5 “Los Angeles” Release Date
Rumored release date: Q1 2012
One of the rumors is that the actual release is expected to be between 2011 and 2012. It is rumored that GTA employees have developed two websites dedicated to GTA 5. Rumor has it that the storyline of GTA 5 will take place in Los Angeles.
I think we can all agree that Rockstar will try to release GTA 5 simultaneously on multiple platforms, maybe that is why they still need time to finish up GTA 5 for the consoles?
Michael Pachter predicted that the game will be released in either late 2011 or early 2012.
Closed Testing Started?
On June 17th, 2010, an employee of TheBitBag.com claimed to be testing GTA 5. It is said that clues to what characters and locations will be used for GTA 5 are embedded in previous games. In one episode there is a calendar in a safe house that alludes to the actual release dates. It is rumored that the release date announcement will be made in Miami, London, Paris or Los Angeles.
