Update: It's official. Thanks to a press release issued by Take-Two Interactive, we now know Grand Theft Auto V will be launching in spring 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Prepare your butts.

Original story: Officially, Rockstar has not issued a release window for their upcoming fifth proper installment in the Grand Theft Auto series. However, a recent promotional poster leaked on a polish website (via Kotaku) points to a spring 2013 release for Grand Theft Auto V.


As Kotaku is quick to point out, the European rating at the bottom left of the image could mean GTA V is coming to other regions sooner or later than spring 2013. But we’ll be honest, that seems like a legitimate target launch date considering the past few Rockstar efforts (LA Noire and Max Payne 3) have released during the spring season, specifically in May.

So we’ll just have to wait and see if Grand Theft Auto V shoots for (and robs) a spring release window. It does seem like a safe bet at this point.
