GTA 5 releasing January 2012 - GameStop

German arm of the retailer dates the as yet unannounced Rockstar title

GameStop Germany is carrying a listing for Grand theft Auto 5 that suggests the unannounced Rockstar title's release date will be January 15, 2012.

If true, we can probably expect an official reveal for the heavily rumoured title at E3 in June.


As well as a series of job ads posted last year for what sounded very much like the next chapter in the GTA universe, analysts have suggested that the title is "well into development".

Wedbush man Michael Pachter said last year: "We fully expect the next instalment of Grand Theft Auto to be released by Q4:12 at the latest, as the company's contracts with the three employees most instrumental in the game's development (Les Benzies, Sam and Dan Houser) expire in January 2012."
