Mod Note 1: Yes, you may discuss platforms in this thread (but civility rules still apply, so you can't be like "Bah 360/PS3 are platforms for dumbshits!!!!"). I've included Strauss Zelnick's (CEO of Take-Two, a company which wholly owns Rockstar) comments (and some Gearbox about Take-Two comments) on the Wii U at the bottom since I'm sure the apparent lack of a Wii U version will be half the commentary in this thread. As for PC gamers, well, I think you know your usual level of service from Rockstar. Also, the actual Game Informer details thread (and other non-platform related threads) will not be an appropriate location to discuss hypothetical additional platforms, as that thread will be reserved for discussing the game itself. If there are additional notes about the platform details in the Game Informer magazine, they will be split into a separate thread.

Grand Theft Auto V will be released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in spring 2013, Rockstar Games has announced, confirming rumours sparked by photos of retail displays leaked over the weekend.

Founder Sam Houser said: “Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we’ve learned about open-world game design. We can’t wait to share it with fans.”

Pre-orders begin on November 5; as we pointed out yesterday, a May release seems likely, though publisher Take-Two might prefer it to launch in March so that its doubtless gargantuan sales revenue can be included in its year-end accounts.

Mod Notes Section:

Here are the Strauss Zelnick (CEO of Take-Two, a company which wholly owns Rockstar) and Gearbox-about-Take-Two comments on the Wii U I promised to include below.

Instead, they cited the system's long-term potential, rather than its initial impact.

Take-Two Interactive Software chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick, however, was not among the cheerleaders.

While Take-Two will make sports and family titles for the Wii U, its bigger core franchises have been notably absent from the list of partners. And that seems unlikely to change anytime soon.

"We haven't announced anything," says Zelnick on the possibility of moving the company's mature titles onto the Wii U. "I'm skeptical."

I like what they're doing - obviously with the touchscreen - and it will be interesting to see what Microsoft do with their approach to that idea. It's one of those problems of the Wii: the only people who have ever made a lot of money on the Wii is Nintendo.

So we're really excited to bring Aliens: Colonial Marines to it. And we're going to do a wait and see approach, our publisher 2K is going to see whether they're going to go with that. But if Borderlands 2 was on the Wii U, the thing I would be most excited about is inventory management: it would be amazing on that, it would just be fantastic. And I think the artwork would look really good, with the way they can deal with the resolutions and textures, I think it's a really good console.

Rockstar is smart, they don't do events because they will sell 20 mil copies of GTAV if they do events or not.
So just put that marketing money into dev time.

Also VGA's is usually for new games, but if Rockstar comes knocking you know they would want it.

They could, but yeah. New trailer/release date at the VGAs. This was a given once Keighley tweeted about seeing the GI crew in NY. I don't know how you could expect anything else at this point.

You can pre-order any game at any time as soon as it's been officially announced. Most places put placeholder things there after the initial announcement regardless of release is. I wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of people already have it pre-ordered.

But, May sounds like a fantastic time for that game to be released. Right before we get the big news of new consoles a month later.

I just think with it being the same 2 from the trailer, it's likely. They seemed to be in gameplay situations in that.

I just thought that they'd break their backs doing what they could to get that on the Wii U. Not just because of how big it is as a series, but because of the perception shift that it could bring to the platform. There's never been a GTA game on a Nintendo console.

I felt like they were past this once Max Payne 3 came out. The PC version was only two weeks behind, used Steam instead of GFWL, and looked amazing. Hopefully a PC logo on that ad is just an error.

Yeah, you could be right. R* artworks have always shown other side characters. And sometimes even non-existent characters (like the lollipop girl on the GTA IV cover).

Though I don't know, I feel like there have been some heavy hints towards multiple characters this time around. The black guy in that artwork could easily be the black guy in the wife beater from the first trailer.



Edit: Eh, scratch that. Difference in tattoos as pointed out by Gravijah.

I don't think they care, and I also don't think Rockstar cares. Rockstar likes huge userbases.

They advertised their GTAV news on the steam group, they HAVE to release it on PC.
Not to mention the huge amount of GTA4 content they plug that is from PC players (videos and such).

Anyway the multiple playable characters thing (probably 2, the black dude and the white old dude) is almost confirmed, in the 12 screenshot released in the summer, it was pretty clear.

It'll happen I think, but 6-9 months after the console release. They're gonna sell their 20m units on console first, definitely.

Whoa! Spring 2013 really?! I mean, I'd ideally like May, but I was thinking more October in line with some of their older releases before GTA IV.

But holy goodness- that is soon! The artwork is utterly fantastic, and I hope some sort of trailer premieres shortly after the GI Exclusive.
