Just like we announced in our article, several weeks ago we hinted for a Q4 2012 release date for GTA V. Now several stores announced the availability of GTA V in winter 2012. That's exactly how we hinted: Q4 2012.
For now no price announced and it's pretty possible just like in GTA IV's case that the first versions available will be for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. PC users may have to wait until spring 2013 because of Rockstar Game's possible loss caused by piracy.
Our guess on the price is: $69.99. The price should drop in the first half of the year after the release and several stores may have offers priced around $49.99.
So console gamers won't have pretty much to wait and they will play GTA V by the winter holidays. Santa better prepare! More info and maybe an official release date from Rockstar Games we may see at E3 since the company is currently focused on the release of Max Payne 3 in may.
