Leaked Rockstar Employee CV Says GTA V Drops In October

Since the official announcement of Grand Theft Auto last November, the only thing that has been the subject of more speculation than the actual plot is the release date. Experts insisted it would come before E3 2012, and fans thought Rockstar snuck in an easter egg implying a May, 2012 release date. Some analysts even said it would be the biggest game of 2012 (duh!), only to be contradicted by others who said nope, it’s definitely not coming until 2013. Guess what everybody: They’re all wrong, maybe. Commence lots of speculation from everyone!

Joystiq is reporting that a leaked Rockstar employee CV confirms that GTA V is coming out this October, just in time to smash attack Assassin’s Creed 3 and BioShock Infinite. That comes courtesy of Rockstar North employee Alex O’Dwyer, who’s CV shows a slew of releases in the past, and firmly places GTA V at the beginning of the 2012 holiday season. Which makes sense. GTA San Andreas was released in October, 2004 and despite having some strong competition completely dominated its retail cycle.

Alas, the image of O’Dwyer’s CV was removed, but here’s a look at what was captured before that happened:

Rockstar has yet to deny this, and we’ll definitely be paying close attention to what they actually end up saying.

& PC? Does this mean they’re finally releasing the product alongside the out dated console versions? Instead of having to wait 6-12 months for the “true HD version” lol

All a confirmed, rushed, release date dose is start the countdown clock for a Steam sale.
GTA V PC = stutter, stutter, lag, lag, stutter stutter…those of us looking for a discount on possibly yet another unoptimized RockStar game will wait as long as it takes for it to reach $7.49 – $14.99 w/ all DLC included.

We’ll definitely be paying closer attention to Assassin’s Creed 3 and BioShock Infinite as they will probably be less buggy and run 100x’s less the performance frustrations of GTA V anyway.

I don’t believe it. Mainly because it shows PS3, XBOX, and (key tell right here) PC all releasing in October.

Everyone knows that they always push the PC version back AN ENTIRE YEAR to “cut back on pirating” they say (or rather, have said in the past with both San Andreas and GTA IV)

I call bull.

While I can understand that people are skeptical of a PC version releasing day and date with the console version, I would point out that Rockstar is doing exactly that with Max Payne 3.

I can believe the shipping picture when says it will be released on the pc at the same date as the consoles because when i pre-ordered it a play-n-trade its said you could pre-order it on xbox 360, ps3, or pc and, why would they let you pre-order it if its only coming out in like a year. in my opinion, this is true
