[UPDATE]

Following the publication of this story, Rockstar Games released the official Grand Theft Auto V box art. It is embedded below.

The original story follows below

Rockstar Games will release the official Grand Theft Auto V box art this week, the company has confirmed. The confirmation came in response to questions about the legitimacy of a GTAV mural (below right) currently being produced in Manhattan.

Rockstar has confirmed this mural (from Instagram user helltones) is an officially sanctioned project and is in fact the final GTAV box art.

The mural will be completed in the coming days and Rockstar will release the box art through its blog later in the week.

GTAV launches September 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, while Wii U and PC versions are "up for consideration." The gameworld is reportedly larger than Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV combined.

Anyone else hoping they GTA VI is set in Vice city?  If so, hopefully they have collector's editions and the cover for them says GTA VI: CE - that would be sweet and clever!

Pc gamers need to stop bitching and just get a 360 or ps3 if they want to play this game. I have a gaming pc, but stuff like this is why I still have a ps3.

lol seems theres always one panel with a random chick you never encounter in-game. Same for the scarred woman in Red Dead Rdemption art.

Genuinely looks good. I am seeing more San Andreas influence in this game than any other in the series.

Wasn't expecting the dog! Was expecting a bikini-clad girl with her tongue out but thankfully there is none!

The girl holding the smart phone really represents how GTA knows how to properly represent each era it protrays. Love the box art.

My birthday is Sept 17th. What a fortunate coincidence, I don't think I've ever had a game I wanted so bad release literally on the day. I absolutely cannot wait!

plz dont bash me ppl for being a noob, but couldn't apple be all over rockstar right now for copyright infringement? I realize it's not an apple (duh), but its still obviously an iphone...

@vivalatour I doubt the game was pushed back 6 months just so that they could design the boxart.

@1soul You're kidding right? It looks extremely similar to the GTA IV cover: Guy with sniper rifle? Check. Helicopter? Check. Girl with object in hand? Check. Guy on motorbike? Check. Fancy car with police car behind it? Check. Black dude with a gun and misty outline of cityscape in the background? Check, check, check!!

@SicklySunStorm I have a friend born on that day. He's an idiot! What a fortunate coincidence that you are born on the same day as him! You are lucky!

The game needed more polishing. And that could mean more bug fixing. And maybe Rockstar decided they wanted to smooth the graphics detail a bit more. I'd rather have a finished product and delaying a game is worth it. Have patience.

@ninedot I'm an intellectual property concentration at UCLA law school. I think you mean trademark, i.e. the apple symbol. The key is whether a person looking at the Rockstar fruit symbol will actually, and mistakenly, believe that the game is made by Apple. This includes portions within the game, including the phone she is holding. That is unlikely; it doesn't seem to me that many people are going to think that Apple was involved with making the game. Instead, they are likely to think that Apple is being parodied. Hope that helps.

@ninedotLet me in on this! I have a banana and two oranges in my pants! It's law-suit time baby!

@ninedot If you look the flash is below the camera, yes it looks like an iPhone but it does not give Apple any probable cause to cause a stir.

@Vegna_Infamous True, Unlike Saints Row The Third, i found that there where many glitches in that game

@armanmatevos @ninedot I know this is a really late response  - but I was just clearing out my email inbox and saw these replies. Thanks everyone for explaining this to me - I get it now.

Though I never had a chance to try Saints Row, developers should care more about their games then money. We're going to get a very high quality product that we all know Rockstar does best. Quality over quantity. And long ass development cycles. :)
