Don’t you just love it when your favourite video game developer and publisher intermittently teases you with little tidbits of information about their upcoming chart-storming title? Those chaps and chapettes at Rockstar certainly know how to keep their eager audience wanting more.
Well today we finally got some answers. That notoriously shy and coy bunch has finally given the thumbs up to the gaming world after we’ve sat waiting in anticipation for months. We now know that Grand Theft Auto V should be hitting the shelves of game retailers in Spring 2013. I know it’s quite a way away, but there is a plethora of games being released over the coming months which should be able to placate us until it is officially GTA o’clock. In the meantime, the promotional campaign will hit full swing sooner rather than later and that will definitely be interesting.
I can tell you from personal experience that retailers are now taking pre-orders of GTA V, which hopefully means some sort of announcement in regards to a special edition on the horizon too. Pretty much every AAA title releases at least one form of special or limited edition pack, and it should be no surprise when GTA V follows suit. This will give Rockstar a golden opportunity to redeem themselves for their previous foray down the special edition route, culminating in GTA IV’s weary, miniature rucksack and safety deposit box which I am a proud and disappointed owner of…
So guys and gals, we’ve got quite a long wait on our hands. Would you like to see a special edition of GTA V released and if so, what would you want to be in it? Feel free to check back here for more GTA V updates and why not check out the screenshots and trailer in order to help pass the time?
