GTA V release date for opposing seasons

By now anyone that can call himself or herself a fan of Grand Theft Auto 5 will know about the spring release date, which hasn’t been announced exactly but rather as a launch window for gamers. This had been expected for some time, which started after looking at Take-Two’s financial year and of course certain retailers moving their GTA V release date markers.

The image you can see below went live on Rockstar’s official website within the last 24 hours, and clearly explained that GTA V will release on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in Spring. The statement also made it clear this would be a “worldwide launch” for that time of the year, which the word “spring” has also been included on the GTA V landing page as well since this announcement.

This news obviously made some gamers extremely enthusiastic and that meant a few console owners rubbing PC users faces in the lack of GTA V details for their platform, which is something Rockstar won’t stand for and they issued a message after the latest image had been revealed. Rockstar told these gamers and PC users to stop asking about the PC version of GTA V, which you can see the exact message below.

It is worth noting that most PC gamers knew that GTA 5 would land on the PC after the PS3 and Xbox 360, which is something to be expected with Rockstar, so this won’t be a big surprise for the more seasoned PC gamer. At the time of writing there has been no GTA 5 release window set for PC users, although you can expect it to land at some time in the future.

GTA 5 will be a worldwide release — Rockstar confirmed the next Grand Theft Auto will launch in spring worldwide, but this confused a number of gamers that have opposing seasons. The South Temperate Zone means spring runs from September to November, although in the North it runs from March to May. It is worth pointing out to these gamers that Rockstar North is developing GTA 5, and they are based in the UK, so you can expect the release date to be between March and May.

What month do you think GTA 5 will launch? Will it be March, April, or May in your opinion? You can read about the game receiving an award already in this article, and how some PC gamers feel about this news here.

But surely all these 2nd hand copies will have to come from somewhere. I mean bought first hand to be able to be sold as 2nd hand copies?

the longer it takes them to release the game the better it should be. though i would like to see it out as soon as possible like everyone else. i don’t want them to rush anything.

why does gamestop have a set date for 12/31/2012 ? i know that gta5 will be on the cover of gameinformer’s december issue, this mixes things up a bit dont you think ?

All I see bellow is ‘I’m not going to get it now.’ Hahaha, everyone in here will be buying this game no matter what you all say, just the same as games like FIFA to be honest; everyone gets annoyed with the previous version and everyone all of a sudden isn’t going to buy the next, or better still, when people buy the game and start winging how bad it is and all that, no shut up you are clearly going to sit there and play it for the following twelve months so just get on with it. But after… Read more »

It’s stupid how all these other people “think” the game won’t make it past the 2013 fiscal year.. dumba$$es GTA V has been in development since 2008. I’m pretty sure it’s coming out next year… that is all

Ha ha ha ha, on reading the comments about cancelling pre-orders etc, I had to laugh! I did the same, also cancelled my pre-order a couple of weeks ago, and will also buy it second hand. They shouldnt have announced it and released a trailer causing hype over a year ago. They should have announced it now, closer to the time of release. I agree, this was a market stunt to max out sales on launch and I also will not follow now due to deception! Bad tactics! Looks awesome though, but happy to wait a little longer for the… Read more »

I wished it would have come earlier, but I’ll still be buying a copy on the release date.

GTA V will sell hundreds of copies… while I agree spring is not the best time to release the game, it will not stop players from getting the game. they will get it no matter what….

and will bioshock, metal gear or god war trouble sales? damn, no….

I think PC gamers should stop complaining.

It’s them who mainly torrent the game straight to the internet as soon as it comes out, it’s aways been the same.

PC gamers can’t be trusted.

I Have GTA IV on both 360 AND PC, and glad PC will once again be delayed for one reason, and one reason only—Modding. I love modding on the PC—basically what it was made for. But when a bunch on bungholes introduce modding onto XBL or PSN, it’s bullshiite. At least 5 or 6 months of no monkey business will be cool.

Brilliant speculation Daniel, do you have any evidence to back this up? Are you sure it might not be released some time in the past?

24.05.13 perhaps? In the trailer next the guy knocking the foreclosure sign on his house is ‘24.05’ on the curb. Could be a hint?

I’m not fussed now really as i don’t buy or play games in the spring or summer. If it was October – December id of bought it day one. Now i’ll do what i did with GTAIV and thats wait untill October-December (2013) and get a second hand copy or get it as an Christmas gift the following Christmas. Just means a few more months wait but i’m ok with that. =)

This may sound childish, but I just cancelled my pre-order. This is a marketing stunt they are playing to maximise sales on launch, but I promise you I wont be buying it until it’s second hand, platinum, or downloadable for free now! R* take note: NOT ALL OF THE POPULATION ARE SHEEP, just the Apple and Fashion fans!

I live in Australia, and I must admit when I first saw spring I thought that meant GTA 5 would land Sept-Nov, of course then I quickly remembered Rockstar isn’t from Australia.
