GTAV out in October, says artist resume

E3 2012: A Rockstar North employee's resume leaks an October release date for Grand Theft Auto V.

by

The next instalment in Rockstar's blockbuster Grand Theft Auto franchise will land in October this year, according to the resume of its lead vehicle artist.

GTAV will ship this October, according to a Rockstar employee.

The document, which dates from last month, was brought to light by fan site GTANetwork and reported by Official Xbox Magazine in the UK. At the time of writing, the fan site which sprang the leak has been taken offline.

This leak follows a similar case in early April when a GTAV animator's resume also suggested the game was due in October 2012.

First unveiled in late 2011, Grand Theft Auto V has kept a low profile in recent months, but a new trailer is rumoured to arrive soon. The game will be set primarily in modern Los Santos, a fictional city modeled on Los Angeles. Rockstar has said that GTAV will have the largest scope of any entry in the series so far.

If Gta 5 does come out this October they might give us half the game. Then they will ask us to pay for DLC's to be able to finish the missions and story HAHA jk.

I call bullshit, I dont know why people want this game to be so rushed and come out so fast. I guarantee you i am 10000000 percent sure that GTA V will not be released in 2012

When I 1st heard that GTA V would be released in 2012...? I had very little hope in that ever happening.

The reasons for this are too many to mention but all you need to do is look back at how they have done this in the past! Which is, to  trickle out little bits of information in regarding the content and/or release date. Then put that date off in favour of a later date.

Rockstar make good games... there is no denying that, but I can't ever remember them releasing any game on time before?

 

I would be happy to be proved wrong though...?

Part of me hopes that it will be later than October as Rockstar should take their time making this a good game not an average one rushed out due to the demands of the impatient gaming public

I have my utmost faith for Rockstar, but an October release date, seems a bit rushed.

They had to put something on their resume, and the was probably the best guess at the time. Doesn't the fact that these are resumes perhaps show that they were working on the project and have since been been let go as the project downsizes towards the end of development. I dunno.

I like PC gaming.

 

But I guess the PC version will come out 7-8 months after the PS3 - 360 version release, maybe in May-June 2013...

 

I can't wait for 1 year... =(

Grand Theft Auto is a defining franchise for the past two console generations. What they managed to accomplish on the PS2 and XBOX hardware...I wouldn't have thought it was possible until I saw it.

 

Of course, they have used current generation hardware to make the games look better, but I'm equally interested in seeing them use addition computing power to make worlds that are richer and more "alive."  That's where the real magic of the GTA franchise is.  Here's hoping that GTA V has a worlds that are detailed and full of life.  And if it has the breadth and wide-open areas that San Andreas had...wow.

I would be so happy if it came out in October. I'd be even happier if it came out before the start of next school year, but, ah, I'm just glad it'll be out this year (hopefully).

 @qaziomer Why? why would you want the game to be rushed? Dude this is bullshit, it's not coming out in october, i guarantee its not even coming out in 2012. Mostly likely probably around March of 2013 is what im predicting.

 @souther_hill October does seem rushed. But why? Well, my opinion, it won't be released in October. That has to be just some school yard gossip, if anything, it'll be released (earliest) December or (latest) the start of 2013. However, December seems more realistic than October and early 2013 as it's closer to the holidays and Rockstar will take full advantage of this. :) Just my opinion

 @souther_hill Maybe they have work for that game after GTA4 and RDR, so they have experience to finish this game faster.

 @videogamer008 I found your comments to be positive and refreshing. It is good to see there are still positive gamers out there that get excited for games. It is great that you are excited for GTA V. As for those that attacked, most gamers are angry sad little people. The state of Games I am not worried about, the state of gamers I worried about. Videogamer, though you are a positive guy in a swill of negativity and for that I give you credit.

 by the sound of it it would be your first time. I don't want that kind of responsibility. But hey man keep being a sexist DB I'm sure all the chicks dig your knuckle dragging "Me Tarzan" persona.

 

Tool...

 

BTW I'm dude just for the record. I just have outgrown the whole frat boy thing and find it repulsive. 

 

Immature comments like yours don't help our community look any better than a scum bag "Street Fighter Pro" berating a female player with sexist comments on a national telecast. 

 

So in closing Grim kindy GFYS  and stop being a perv.

 What does this article have to do with COD? Or are you just giving 3arc a BJ? Thats the only viable reason I could see  for COD to spill out of your mouth on a GTA article.
