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.
