News on the release of Grand Theft Auto 5 has been on the down low recently, however new details on the date of release of the game have emerged. As reported by Product-Reviews via email from Microsoft, the game is expected to be released in Spring, on a weekend at the end of March.
The precise date is estimated to be on the 24th March, which falls on a Sunday. There is some doubt however related to the date. Nintendo are known to release their most popular games on a Sunday, however GTA 5 is not coming out on the Wii U at the moment, and so it is unlikely that Rockstar will choose to launch the Xbox 360 and PS3 game on a Sunday.
Over gaming sites also appear to be uncertain about the date, but most are also proposing the 24th as the most likely date. GTA 4 has sold over 10 million copies and Rockstar has earned over $600 million from the game itself, so we are sure whenever this arrives it will just as big a hit.
