I am sure that the big Grand Theft Auto fans are eagerly anticipating the release of the fifth installment in the series, Grand Theft Auto V and for them there are some great news on the horizon: Rockstar is reportedly preparing to make an official announcement this summer, announcing the release date of GTA 5 sometime during fall/holiday season 2012.

Even though Rockstar have been hard at work with console titles like Red Dead Redemption or L.A. Noire, both of them successful releases and also titles that were similar in concept with Grand Theft Auto, the biggest fan base remains loyal to GTA and everybody’s waiting for the next game to be released.

Therefore, many voices in the gaming industry are saying that it would be more than obvious for the announcement of Grand Theft Auto V to be made during the Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany this summer with the release date being set for fall 2012.

However, it’s worth noting that since the previous GTA game was released in April 2008, GTA 5 might also be “delayed” for the same period of 2013. Either way, the game is closer than ever and as soon as the release date is set in stone I’ll make sure to let you know!
