CVG will follow the gameplay video release with a special episode of GTA 5 'o Clock featuring expert analysis and opinion.


In January, Rockstar delayed the GTA V release date from spring 2013 to September 17 worldwide on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Explaining the move, it said: "The only reason we've delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be."

CVG sources have indicated that GTA 5 is set to break UK sales records. Take-Two will reportedly allocate three million copies for the UK alone, giving it scope to outstrip the fastest selling UK game ever, Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Speaking in a Q&A post found on the official Rockstar Games website, Rockstar stated that it's focusing its attention on current-gen versions of the game.

Although speculation that GTA 5 will also be released on Xbox One and PS4 has been rampant, Rockstar hasn't officially commented on next-gen versions. Similarly, it has not discussed the status of a possible PC version.

"The only versions of the game that we have announced are for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 which are set for a September 17th worldwide release," it said.

"We don't have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or a PC platform release at this time and we are completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now."

Earlier this year CVG visited Rockstar to see the game in action, and delivered an in-depth Grand Theft Auto V preview, along with new screenshots and impressions.
