GTA V subtle hints this week

This week has been one of the most interesting as far as Grand Theft Auto 5 is concerned, which delivered something a little more solid in the form of a religious viral statement, and also some renewed hope for GTA V to feature a 2012 release date. Since the first trailer we have seen very little in the way of real news, but recently there has been two new photos and this week some subtle hints thanks to an old project being restarted by Rockstar.

The religious website we wrote about 3 days ago might be remembered by some gamers from the past, but considering the renewed tweets and strong messages towards GTA V, it is certainly being worked on right now in a form of viral marketing for GTA V. You can also look at the websites code to see the links to Rockstar, and as we mentioned before the navigation links to the official Rockstar Games website.

New information for Grand Theft Auto V — there is a number of fans counting on new information this month for GTA V, and while this is unlikely to be at Gamescom it looks possible considering the viral effort that started within the last couple of weeks. This week also saw the need for GTA V on a financial level, and how much Take-Two are pinning on the success of the next GTA game, which is almost guaranteed but worries some analysts considering they’re putting all their eggs in one basket.

Expectations for the game to launch this year — considering the financial need for GTA 5 we could see the release date land in 2012, and this is exactly what well-known Michael Pachter expects. His views always meet a mixture of reactions from gamers, but in a recent report Pachter explains that GTA 5 would need to launch in 2012 to reach the revenue level needed by April next year. You can see his comments below, and while most gamers don’t want Rockstar to rush GTA 5 it’s understandable they might need to release sooner rather than later.

Would you be happy if Rockstar had to rush Grand Theft Auto 5 slightly thanks to meeting certain financial results? Most fans want the game to arrive as soon as possible, but are happy to wait for a better quality game. Those gamers that say they won’t buy GTA 5 thanks to the lack of information are mostly voicing frustration, and when the release date arrives they’re likely to purchase the game anyway.

Real problems could arrive if the developers had to rush certain parts of the game thanks to a need for bringing in revenue for Take-Two, and we’d really hate to see Rockstar’s polished image ruined due to financial demand.

Calm down guys this whole argument is over when GTA:V comes out which is silly, you should just be happy that it’s coming out at all and when it does we all know it’s going to be amazing

Just let Rockstar do what they want, you might add a little pressure into the team causing them to release it early making the game a little buggy (I know V has been in development for a long time). To those who are like “IM GOING TO KILL YOU ROCKSTAR IF YOU DON’T RELEASE IT BY 2012” like is the world going to end on December 21 or something?

I would wait years for V, i want a perfect game that lasts for years

So GTA IV came out exactly six months and three years after GTA: San Andreas. Right now we are about two months shy of it being FOUR and a half years since the release of GTA IV… And we are still out serious information about, let alone a release date for, GTA V. Is it just me or is this starting to look suspiciously like a Duke Nukem Forever???

Ahhh UK here! Over the ‘pond’ we are very happy to wait, a game this sizeis going to take time and after all you can’t rush perfection! You know what R* I think I speak for the majority when I say you take as long as you like getting this game right! I’d rather wait and play another R* classic than some money rushed flop!

And for the next gen, I hope R* goes into the ways of cry engine – taking a look at far cry 3, makes me wonder how awesome a gta game would be in an engine like that, and now unreal 4 and Agnes philosophy, wow – maybe more to come!

Too bad it’s coming out for this Gen of consoles. There’s nothing to be done to undo this, since GTAV has been in dev for so long, and Next Gen dev kits just got shipped in Februrary. Now if I want to be blown away, I have to wait several years until a next gen GTA comes out. And I know that Next Gen version will be the Bomb! It will be as if we are playing CGI with of course super improved physics and lighting! This Gen sucks ass, and that’s why I never had an Xbox 360 or… Read more »

It won’t be out this year, because this year the sales of games have dropped hugely and if GTA V was released this year, Rockstar know they won’t get as much units sold as they would if they waited till 2013, also i’m not trying to make out i know everything because i don’t i’m just thinking outside of the box and fans who have seen 2 screenshot photos going crazy thinking it will be released near Christmas need to calm down purely because it’s stupid to big something up that you don’t actually know when the release date is and everyone would prefer a long wait for… Read more »

I find this all too funny, you know how rockstar work and the way they approach releasing a game especially the GTA series, it will be released when they release it. Whatever the case you know they’ll want to hype it up as much as possible and make as much money as they can. We’ll just have to keep our ears to the ground and see what scraps of information they decided to throw our way and enjoy what we get until the day of the release comes

Rockstar should not rush the game.  No matter when it is released people will be upset about the timing until the release.  However, once it’s released all the crying will stop…unless the game is low-quality.  If the game is weak, the bitching will continue endlessly.  Quality is the answers to all these problems.  If the game is great no one will remember the wait.  If the game is great the financial goals for the game will be met and exceeded.  If the game is great we’ll all play it endlessly and then wait impatiently for DLC and GTA 6.  Rockstar… Read more »

There is absolutley no need for a rushed launch. Trust me it will be a mistake. Of course it can and will outsell Crap Ops 2, and AC:III, and that game with that bald dude in a suit. BUT, It will sell substantially less than a 2013 release, something along the lines of, hmm I dunno lets say February. The suspicion nowadays and the amount of talk revolving around GTA is enormous, but they’ve got to release tidbits of info, TV spots, and even like GTA IV billboards and stuff… Y’know public advertisement. 4 months is a bit “HmpfYeahIdunno”. If they announce 2013… Read more »

Good chance the gta5 will be out may/June 2013 cause that’s been the rockstar release time for their past titles and they’re promoting Max Payne 3 (DLC wise). So between october went the final peice of DLC gets release to around feb/mar went Max Payne 3 Complete Edition is out, Rockstar will most likely release info and a second trailer on gta5

It wont be out this year, i dont understand people are still hoping for it.  Games, especially high end ones, always have plenty of warning and trailers and hype. In other words, if it was out this year, we’d have probably 3 trailers, the newest dropping last week. What the trailer was, was probably in game constructed footage, to start the hype. People saying Rockstar and TT dont care, tsk.  Rockstar and TT know EXACTLY what they are doing. They sat down and thought, “Alright guys. Weve made this game bigger than LC. Probably one of the largest game words… Read more »

I Understand that they need to take time with these things but atleast a second trailer or up to date pictures would be nice

All these people crying and hating because a release date is not yet confirmed need to grow up i mean GTA V will be released and we have to wait… big deal, as long as the game is great i have no issues in waiting because the longer the wait the more work they are putting in to the game to make it better

Wel if they need to make 2billion by march why didnt they start making the game when they brought gta 4 out? But anyways if they brought it out for christmas they will make millions if not billions tons of people i know are talking about it! this better be THE best game ever.

This game dose not have to come out this year. They have until March 2013 to make release. Enough people know about Bioshock by now that A)They’ve pre-ordered it. B(renting it. C) waiting for more GTAV news. Take-Two (rock*s parent company) for those who don’t know. needs to make 2billion by end of march. GTAV has been in the works since 2008-or 2009. due to Poor sales of spec ops the line. and MP3 . They have MP3 DLC, Borderlands 2. NBA 2K 13. XCOM and Bioshock coming out before March (and some other small games too) but that won’t be… Read more »

At last some news, now I feel happy that Take-Two is releasing more news

And that is why publishers suck. They’re all about the money. I’m surprised though, I figured Rockstar would have been big enough to be in control of their own flagship game, and not leashed to a publisher’s schedule. Power to the Developers!

GTA 5 has been in development for a long time, so I’m sure any issues can be fixed with a patch at a later date. Obviously I would like everything to be perfect at launch, but it never will be, so please Rockstar release GTA 5 this year.

I am happy to wait as long as it takes for GTA 5, although seeing the loss Take-Two made it does worry me they might want to rush a launch.
