A leaked image of a European poster for Grand Theft Auto V indicates the latest in Rockstar's blockbuster saga will be released in Spring 2013.
That news, via fan forum GTA-Five, is hardly unexpected, but this is the first time we've had reasonable confirmation of any sort of release window for the game. There is no indication if this timetable applies to a global release, or if Rockstar intends to stagger its release dates. Grand Theft Auto IV had a simultaneous release in Australia, Europe and North America, with Japan receiving the game some 6 months later.
It's also worth pointing out that the only system/publisher logos on the poster are for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It appears as though - for now - there are no plans for Wii U.
More GTA V news is set to arrive in November. Stay tuned to IGN for more in the near future.
So it's coming out way sooner than I thought, was thinking Fall 2013 at the least.
GTA V releasing 5 years after the previous game, I like it. Here's hoping it's next Spring anyway, I can't wait to play it. Will probably end up failing my uni exams due to too much adventuring in San Andreas.
