Grand Theft Auto V will be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in spring 2013, Rockstar has confirmed on its Newswire blog. Pre-orders for the game will begin on November 5 this year.
The announcement follows earlier leaks from Polish GTA fan site GTA-Five.pl and UK retailer GAME, both of which posted photos of promotional posters showing a Spring 2013 release date and the option to pre-order the game.
Announced last October and developed by series creator Rockstar North, GTA V is set in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California in the fictional city of Los Santos. For more on GTA V, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
