Grand Theft Auto V for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 may have been pushed back to 2015, according to reports this week.
Rockstar Games announced it would bring the title the platforms in the fall during the E3 conference in June, but there’s been no official release date.
This week, there’s been speculation that a lack of a release date might mean Rockstar will have to push the game back until 2015.
Producer and Editor James Jarvis, according to CVG, said a lack of previews with no official word with being already August means that the game probably won’t come out in the fall.
“If it’s gonna be this year, you want to build the hype up a good few months before the game comes out, and there isn’t much of the year left,” he said, according to PlayStation Universe. “If the previews don’t happen really soon, there’s a possibility we won’t be seeing ‘GTA 5’ on new-gen, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, until next year.”
“If we take a look at the dates when we went to see the game before it was released, the first clue was on Jan. 31, 2013, a full eight months before the game came out,” he continued.
Grand Theft Auto V was released last September for the Xbox One and PS3.
There’s been screenshots floating around the Internet, showing a release date on European retailers for Nov. 7 and Nov. 14.
On Tuesday, Rockstar announced the belated 1.16 patch for GTA Online, fixing a number of bugs.
It also said there’s a weekend event involving the flight school DLC, which came along with the 1.16 patch.
“This weekend, August 22nd-24th, it’s time for fight AND flight as The San Andreas Flight School Event Weekend takes off in GTA Online. That’s three days of big RP & GTA$ bonuses, an exclusive in-game Parachute Pack unlock, valuable discounts from a range of San Andreas local businesses, special competitions, giveaways and much more as you enjoy the all-new stomach-in-throat G-suit pounding Flight School content action that separates the Mavericks from the Whiskey Deltas once and for all,” the company wrote on its newswire.
