GTA 5 now expected in early 2012

Written by David Stellmack


Sources suggest a January 15, 2012 release
It seems that by way of several sources, we are now hearing that we should expect Rockstar to formally announce Grand Theft Auto 5 in June at E3. In addition, it is expected that the game could be on track to make a January 15th, 2012 release date.

What we have been able to uncover so far is that it is pretty much confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 5 has been in development for some time since the release of GTA 4. High profile industry analysts do agree that 2012 will not pass without a GTA 5 release, which isn’t a surprise; but the latest news of a January 15th 2012 release date does seem a bit puzzling and unexpected, to say the least, if it turns out to be true.

Apparently, the January release has a lot to do with expiring contracts of developers said to be working on the GTA 5 project. A number of rumors claim that key players on the development team for GTA 5 only have contracts that run through January of 2012, and that is why the game must make a January release deadline. It is hard to understand the strategy of a January 15th release, but with many still having holiday money to spend it might not be such a bad thing. We will have to wait and see, but we do expect GTA 5 to be officially announced at E3 in June.

GTA4 was too slow of a game, they tried to get everything as close to realism as possible but made everything that tad too slow compared to actual realism, running, fighting and driving, although the weapons were very precise,hopeful ly GTA5 can improve these areas, and give this one a good story line

Slow ? It felt almost perfect, specially the physics though cars were really kinda slow without modding.

The only thing they can improve is mission design, lesser "kill" mission and more decisions and it beats IV for the best game ever, at least for me.

I don't buy that date at all. If they could make Jan 15th then they could make December 15th even if they have to double the staff or pay them overtime to sleep at their desks but they were that close to Christmas they would make for Christmas.
If you get a game out for the holidays you will probably double the amount of money the game will make, at least over the first quarter and maybe even half a year.

Quoting Jermelescu:

New engines if consoles could barely handle RAGE ? Dats nonsense.

This will be GTA 5 in name only!

It will be GTA 4 with a different storyline. Why do i think this? GTA 4 pushed the current consoles to their absolute limits and nothing has changed there so nothing much will change in GTA. Yes they can make it look different and i am sure it will be a great game but we desperately need new consoles for games to move on.
