GTA 5 fan tolerance tested again, 2013 release likely
Rockstar are starting accumulate some intolerance with fans anticipating news of GTA V’s release this year, as the company has recently spoke out about them being in no position to show more on the game at present, and is not expected anytime soon. Reassuring fans that the development of Grand Theft Auto V is going well, we are skeptical about the time of its release.
Apologizing for the long gaps between asset releases on previous games Rockstar reveal that this will continue in the future, and this is due to their commitment to give gamers the correct information. This is not the only reason, because holding a certain amount back is ideal for delivering the element of surprise, assuring the gamer’s response is one of amazement and astonishment rather than something that has been expected.
The realization that we won’t be getting any substantial news on GTA 5 anytime soon leaves us thinking this game is more likely to be releasing in 2013 as opposed to sometime this year, and with this in mind the question would be when next year, as the next-gen consoles could be with us then. In addition, if Grand Theft Auto V does release in the same year as the next Xbox or the PS4, surely the install base is much larger on the current console, which will means Rockstar will still sell more copies of the game on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 instead of the next-gen consoles.
On reflection is seems like Rockstar are nowhere near completing this game by the lack of communication from the developer, and little to show in the way of gameplay, so we are not expecting GTA V release anytime in 2012. Only yesterday we showed our readers 2 screenshots to wet their appetite and discussed fans concerns about Rockstar’s stance on not giving up any information until it is 100 percent correct, and these couple of screenshots seem to be a bit of an open handed gesture for those waiting to see a trailer.
Do you think that a 2013 release for Grand Theft Auto 5 is on the cards? Maybe you feel that the next-gen consoles will come a while after.
