    Grand Theft Auto 5 "supposedly" comes out in September. I don't think it will be September. I am assuming it will be out in April or May. They are going to move it back again. I am not saying the other person is wrong, but here's what I've noticed. Check the release dates for some major games that Rockstar has released starting with Grand Theft Auto 4.

    Grand Theft Auto 4 - April 29

    Red Dead Redemption - May 3

    LA Noire - May 17

    There's a reason why they are all coming out in late April to mid-May. The game developers are getting money from people who are investing into Rock Star. Those people have what is called a "fiscal year income" and that means at the beginning of every fiscal year, which in Rock Stars Case is sometime after April.

    If Rock Star were to release a game in let's say... March, people would not all buy the game on the same day, and therefore the profit graph would show that the profits were split into the new fiscal year. They release the game sometime at the beginning of the fiscal year so the investors can clearly see how much money was made that year on their video games. If the investors were to look at the profits and see that not enough was coming back, they would retract their investments, and Rock Star would probably get shut down. Most of the money made goes to the investors, and not Rock Star's company itself.

    It's really unfair because we have to wait and they tag us along and keep pushing the release dates back, but that's the way it goes. The reason why they string us along for over 6 months is to make us want the game even more, so more profit can be made from anticipation.

    Most video game companies do the same thing when they are pushing back titles. The best thing you can do is check the video game company's earlier release dates and expect it to come out at the same time the previous titles did.

    Don't expect Grand Theft Auto 5 to come out until May. I'd LIKE if it came out in September, but don't hold your breath.
