GTA5 in Spring?

Computer and Video Games reports a indication that Grand Theft Auto V will be released in Spring 2013, saying this was found on some allegedly leaked posters on, a Polish website that currently seems completely blank. They do reproduce the images, and we'll trust their super vision when they say "suggest - in very small print - the eagerly anticipated sequel will be available between March and May next year," adding "this has not been officially confirmed by Rockstar Games or Take-Two Interactive."

The GTA formula is pretty stale these days. The series has been already been surpassed in terms of game mechanics by the likes of Just Cause 2, Saboteur, Prototype, Sleeping Dogs, Arkham City, Assassin's Creed, Red Faction Guerrilla and practically any other open-world game released in the past five years.

Rockstar needs to focus on quality and innovation in GTA5, rather than quantity. Having 1000 different things to do doesn't really mean much if those things are all shallow and forgettable.

Truth. Honestly, the formula was already stale with San Andreas when all the changes they made were a step back from Vice City. GTA4 was an exercise in tedium. I don't know why people find it appealing to follow on-screen instructions and then watch cut-scenes.

I agree with the both of you. I, also, don't get the love for the game. The physics were atrocious, the characters were either forgettable or so annoying that I would have killed them myself were it possible, the story was threadbare and done better before AND since in other titles and the world was just really bland.

In fact, in a lot of ways, I felt like GTA was trying, to some degree, to mimic Saints Row. Which is incredibly meta but still done poorly. The loud, jacked up steroid guy? The incredibly bad Russian mafia characters? That Patty McIrishStereotype guy? Saints Row's charm is that they deliberately caricaturized their entire world and everyone in it. GTAs world was just...clown shoes.

If a body likes it, I'm happy for them. I just don't get "why".
