Grand Theft Auto V
Grand Theft Auto V Confirmed for Spring 2013

Let the speculation end! Grand Theft Auto V has finally been confirmed for a spring 2013 launch, with Rockstar actually nailing down the release window with some new artwork of a blonde bikini babe on the beach taking a picture of herself on her smartphone.

Set in a re-imagined, modern day version of South California, GTA V will take you to places like Los Santos and way beyond "from the tops of the mountains to the depths of the ocean." Furthermore, Rockstar is promising new information on November 5th, when you'll be able to pre-order the game everywhere.

Grand Theft Auto V will be coming in spring 2013. Does that mean a May release? Probably. We wait with bated breath for Rockstar to narrow down that launch date a bit more. For now, here's the confirmed release window artwork, Enjoy.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in]

I do think Rockstar knew there will be a leak and i also think they were behind it themselves. Rockstar is a master in creating hype and clever tricks like this.
However, i dont mind because each of their titles has lived up to the hype as well which is a rare trait. Going to preorder this as soon as i see what editions are available, i never order the limited editions but with this one, might just make an exception.

month after release: story is boring, too realistic driving, too little to do in game etc.... Whining, just like last time.

Just kidding, i personally love gta iv and i hope this succeeds too.

@#9- I was thinking the same thing! It reminds me of Kate Upton's SI Swimsuit cover for this year.

@#26- I completely agree, you got a "vote up" from me. Those 2 are holding me back from GTA IV platinum >=(

Wow. This day cannot get better. I started AC Liberation, downloaded the soundtrack for that, played GTA 3 and got all nostalgic and now we get a solid release date for GTA V.

I love you, Rockstar.

I was thinking she looked like a blend of Kate Upton and Bar Refaeli myself. A May release is likely a good guess considering the last few Rockstar releases, even though GTA IV released in late April in 2008. I need to go pre-order this game asap!
