New GTA V Art Released, “Lots Of Info” Due Next Month
With every passing day I am forced to admit how criminally incorrect I was in my prediction that we’d be getting Grand Theft Auto V before the end of 2012. You can’t blame me, since Take Two did carve out a gigantic GTA V-sized hole in their fall AAA schedule. I assumed that there’s no way they’d push back some of their other major titles only to have them compete for your dollar against GTA V anyway. But I failed to account for the fact that Rockstar games’ vast game sales provide the bulk of Take Two’s profits year after year. So of course they’re allowed to make the game on their own damned schedule.
So, is it coming out sometime in early 2013? All signs point to yes. And by signs, I refer you to the fact that Game Informer has already enjoyed a hands-on which will be the cover story for the December issue. And to a post this morning on the official Rockstar blog. Premiering the fist official artwork from the game (that’s it at the top of the page), they also said “Lots of info coming next month. Get ready.” Duly noted. Hopefully, this means a release date, but I’ll settle for a new trailer because I am that much of a stupid fanboy for the GTA series.
So mark your calendars, generally speaking. Looks like we’re finally getting some actual information soon.
