Today, Grand Theft Auto fans got confirmation from Rockstar Games that GTA V would be arriving in the spring of 2013. Following numerous retail leaks that had been showing promotional art with the release window on it, it looks like Rockstar could keep the cat in the bag no longer.
Here’s what Rockstar had to say in the announcement over on the Rockstar Newswire.
“Rockstar Games is very proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto V is expected to launch worldwide during spring 2013 for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V is the largest and most ambitious title in the series to date. Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean.
‘Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we’ve learned about open world game design,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. We can’t wait to share it with fans.’
Beginning November 5, 2012, Grand Theft Auto V will be available for pre-order in stores everywhere.
What Rockstar didn’t address is a PC version of GTA V. Being a very popular title on PC, Rockstar also addressed this segment of their fanbase.
“Hey guys, glad to see so much enthusiasm about the release announcement. For those asking about the PC platform, we’re currently focused on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and don’t have any details to share about a PC version at this time.”
