Many rumors are circulating on the web about the release of Grand Theft Auto V, but it definitely seems that it won’t be released for 2011. Rockstar Games hadn’t confirm the release date and GTA 5 should need more time to be finished. Moreover it’s the most expected video game ever and it’s important to remind that the last major Take Two’s video game has been released 3 years ago.
Whereas Rockstar Games has released two major addons to Grand Theft Auto IV, the franchise said nothing about their future video games, excepted that a new video game was in development. The reason of that rumor telling that Grand Theft Auto V would be released for late 2011 is due to the fact that the contracts of some major employees working on that project are ending in early 2012. But those key people working on GTA 5 could renew their contracts with Rockstar too, so it could be released later in 2012.
We would hear some GTA V news at the next E3, but nothing is fixed. Anyway whatever the future brings, GTA 5 would be released early 2012. Stay tuned!
Currently news aren’t clear about the GTA 5 & Max Payne 3 release date and Rockstar didn’t do any comment about it. The thing is that Fudzilla just published that GTA 5, which seems to be in development, will kill Max Payne 3. Firstly it’s the end of many contracts of the major employees working on the new GTA, and secondly the lack of information about Max Payne 3 could be a clue that Rockstar are working on Grand Theft Auto V. So it seems that Fudzilla agrees with the famous video game analyst Michael Pachter, who thinks that it would be released for late 2011. Moreover they say that GTA V will be announced at the next E3 in June 2011… Stay tuned!
