Re: GTA V Gets Release Leaked; Spring 2013
The game will not get delayed for the simple reason that the new X Box and PS4 will be likely due next fall. Unless those get delayed, then Rockstar does not want to have to compete with that noise to sell their game. It will sell anyways, but it will look dated in the face of a next generation batch of games, and I'm sure Rockstar would prefer to avoid that.
I would bet money the game comes out before E3, May at the latest. I will say late April or 1st week of May when not a lot of other games come out, so they can maximize sales. Only way the game gets delayed, if is Sony and Microsoft do not come out with new consoles for some reason.
