    Rockstar North employee CV gives Grand Theft Auto V an October launch window



    Like the last several major Grand Theft Auto franchise entries, Grand Theft Auto V is being developed by Rockstar's Edinburgh, Scotland-based Rockstar North studio. Character animator Alex O'Dwyer is an employee at Rockstar North, according to both his LinkedIn page and his CV, and he seems to think that Grand Theft Auto V will launch this October.

    As seen in the image above, O'Dwyer's CV puts GTA V's launch window firmly in the holiday season not exactly a bizarre concept considering Rockstar's history of launching GTA titles during the holidays (with the exception of Grand Theft Auto IV, that is). It would also put sufficient time between Rockstar's May launch of Max Payne 3, but would totally buck the trend of Rockstar releasing more than one title in any given year.

    We've reached out to Rockstar and O'Dwyer for comment, but, well ... it's Easter. Hopefully we'll hear something soon. For now, we're putting this squarely in the "rumor" column.

    October definitely seems like an appropriate time to launch the title.

    Rockstar North employee CV gives Grand Theft Auto V an October < RUMO >

    ROCKSTAR THE BAST DEVELBARED FOR ME . IN THIS THREAD SOM WAN IN ROCKSTAR HAVE NORTH EMPLOYEE

    AND A GAME COME IN OCTOBER THIS YEAR .......

    Like the last several major Grand Theft Auto franchise entries, Grand Theft Auto V is being developed by Rockstar's Edinburgh, Scotland-based Rockstar North studio. Character animator Alex O'Dwyer is an employee at Rockstar North, according to both his LinkedIn page and his CV, and he seems to think that Grand Theft Auto V will launch this October.

    As seen in the image above, O'Dwyer's CV puts GTA V's launch window firmly in the holiday season – not exactly a bizarre concept considering Rockstar's history of launching GTA titles during the holidays (with the exception of Grand Theft Auto IV, that is). It would also put sufficient time between Rockstar's May launch of Max Payne 3, but would totally buck the trend of Rockstar releasing more than one title in any given year. It's worth noting that Rockstar's parent company, Take-Two Interactive, may not be keen on launching GTA V in the same month as BioShock Infinite.

    Regardless, we've reached out to Rockstar and O'Dwyer for comment, but, well ... it's Easter. Hopefully we'll hear something soon. For now, we're putting this squarely in the "rumor" column.

    I doubt R* will put the game out this year. They tend to $#@! up release dates all the time. Plus Max Payne 3 is getting all the shine for this year.

    Also... I don't see this happening as it says they release a game a year. I think R* is concentrating on Max Payne this year and early next year is GTAV. We will see though, it would be cool if it did drop October

    I'll be waiting to make sure there's more to this game than there was GTA IV. "Ride To Hell" holds much more interest for me (the "N/A" upsets me).


    Shut up and play games

    I would be surprised if it didn't. A common trend with Grand Theft Auto games is that they're almost always released in the month of October. GTA IV was simply delayed because of problems with development on the PlayStation 3 version.

    Also, the Rockstar North employee's CV was recently pulled down, which can only give more credence to this rumor.

    I'm down for an October release date for Grand Theft Auto V. That game is going to rock.

    The real question is: Will Take Two release Bioshock Infinite and GTA V in the same month to compete against each other...

    But Bioshock and GTA are completely different games. So why would it matter if they all com out in the same month?
    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    Playstation Move for the win!

    If I was a publisher, I wouldn't want to release two of my two biggest games in the same month, regardless of genre.

    October: bioshock

    November: COD

    December: no one releases it on december

    So if i was R* and the game was near completion and could make an October release date, i would take it. GTA would be better of competing with bioshock than COD.

    Also i heard this is fake.

    I wouldn't mind, but I'm sure this is the year of Max Payne.

    Rockstar have the habit of not keeping things to themselves, this is no surprise and it will not change the release of gta v this year

    I seriously doubt Take Two would want to release 2 big AAA titles (Bioshock & GTA) the same month.

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    Plus they are going to want to release something next year to boost their profits for next year's FY reports. GTA5 will do just that.

    I would be very surprised if GTA V was released this year. Max Payne 3 and Bioshock Infinite are the heavy hitters for Take Two this year. GTA IV was released in April 2008. I see GTA V being released sometime next spring.

    I really hope "Agent" is fully revealed at E3 this year. Jack Tretton confirmed that it's still in development at last year's E3 conference.

    I would think they would "delay" GTA V until around April. I really can't see them releasing it around the same time Bioshock Infinite and the next Call of Duty. That would be kind of dumb.

    Also, regardless of when they release it. I'll be getting both Bioshock and GTA V. The two games I am most looking forward to currently.
