Also, final release date revealed?
Rockstar has released new screenshots for GTA V, showing a submarine and... sharks?!
Rockstar has released five new holiday shots for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V, showing shark, submarine, planes, and blimp.
Also, according to a supposed Amazon e-mail, the release date for GTA V could have been revealed:The first screenshot shows a character floating in the ocean with a shark below. Another depicts a yellow contemporary submarine outfitted with various gadgetry. Yet another screenshot shows GTAV protagonist Franklin driving down a street with a dog in the passenger seat.
Finally, one screenshot is focused on air travel. It shows a fighter jet, what appears to be a passenger plane, and a blimp far away in the distance.
Here's the pic of the e-mail:Amazon has been known to paste random release dates (usually the end of the next year, i.e. December 31st 2013) on big name games without publicly confirmed release dates, and itís to be taken with a grain of salt on most occasions.
However, today, Amazon has updated their GTA V listing to reflect a new release date: March 26th, 2013. Note that the listing does not reflect this date, but any existing pre-orders received an email today about an amended release date. Pictured is my email.
The screencap says the 27th, but that is due to my old next day shipping still being on the order.
This is a Tuesday, which makes sense in the US for a release, and since Rockstar has promised a Spring release, this lines up perfectly.
Factor in how GTA IV came out in April of 2008, and it makes perfect sense.
For now, keep in mind this is just a rumor, so take it with a grain of salt (but that date doesn't sound so crazy).
Meanwhile, take a look at the new shots below!
