Grand Theft Auto V to release Spring 2013

Rockstar to shoehorn yet another release into a busy quarter

Rockstar has made clear their intentions to marry your daughter release Grand Theft Auto V in spring of 2013. Awesome. I’m sure we’ll all be well and caught up on everything else coming out in the first quarter. I mean, it isn’t as though there are half a dozen other major titles releasing in that window.

In a post on their blog, the developer has stated that the game will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and pre-orders will open at retailers on November 5th. No mention of a PC release, though there’s a history of console versions dropping first in this series, so that isn’t terribly surprising. 

On a side note, one new promotional image was also revealed, with a blonde on a beach in a bikini with a smartphone in front of what looks like Rockstar’s fictional version of the Santa Monica Pier. I hope they recreate that in the game. One of my favorite spots in southern California.
