Grand Theft Auto 5 Release Date

Grand Theft Auto Five Release Date

As of the writing of this article, there is no definite date yet as to when the game will hit the shelves. Rockstar Games, the maker of the game has remained silent since officially announcing in December 2011 that the fifth installment in the very popular game series was in full development. In their announcement, they even included a breathtaking trailer for GTA 5. They called it their most ambitious and largest game yet. If you are a fan of the previous games in the series, nothing will excite you more than the said announcement. And the fact that Rockstar Games called it their most ambitious project to date, this game is a must-have.

The bad news is we're already halfway through 2012 and fans are still getting no details as to when the game will be available for gamers. There are a lot of rumors going around, that's for sure. Some are saying that the game will come out as early as September of this year. It's unclear where these people are getting their updates but September seems unlikely. It would make more sense if Rockstar Games releases it in November just before the Christmas season. But the company is known for being unpredictable so we will never know until they make an official announcement.

If you are going to ask me, my guess is that the game is not coming out this year. Instead, it will be released within the first half of next year (2013).
