The Grand Theft Auto 5 release date speculation we’ve all been hearing over the last few weeks seems to be increasingly likely with retailers moving placeholders, and also certain members of the gaming press getting a demo of GTA V today in New York. Rockstar did say that more information would arrive in a few weeks, which had been shortly after a flurry of screenshots appeared on the official channel.
Today’s GTA V news came thanks to a short tweet from popular magazine, Game Informer, which simply saw the Editor-In-Chief tease followers by stating he’s checking out the magazine cover game for December. He didn’t hold back and made it pretty clear what game it will be, and a simple Hashtag for GTA V and the image seen above explained all we needed to know.
You can see an image of the tweet below that was posted within the last few hours, and this has been met with a number of reactions from followers and GTA V fans. Some gamers are very happy that we’ll “finally hear something” solid about the game, and plenty of other fans tweet one simple word “finally“. The images were great but detailed information is what we all really want, and we’re sure our readers have a few questions they want answering.
It seems frustration has grown considering the long wait since the first GTA 5 trailer, and this had been calmed a little thanks to the recent screenshots, so it’s now hoped that the upcoming information from the GTA 5 demo today should help wet gamer appetites a little longer.
What do you expect from the Grand Theft Auto 5 demo today? With the release date almost certainly coming before April next year, and placeholders changing on a number of UK websites, US game retailers like Gamestop, and via other sources, it now seems like this news only adds to the increased speculation surrounding a launch in March next year.
On the other hand it could just be that retailers are reading the same speculation and changing their placeholders accordingly, although now we’re coming to the end of 2012 with an increase in solid news surrounding GTA 5, it seems the growing evidence towards a March/April launch is making it hard to doubt. With all this activity you can count on Rockstar confirming the date within the next couple of months, and certainly retailers letting the cat out of the bag before then, if they have not already done so that is.
