News of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V release leaked in Europe earlier this week when pictures of pre-order posters showed up on the web. Rockstar then confirmed the game and sent out its own press release regarding the announcement.
Rockstar won’t divulge the exact release date, but the firm did say that GTAV will be available for Sony’s (NYSE:SNE) PlayStation 3 and Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Xbox 360. Pre-orders will be available Nov. 5, 2012.
Grand Theft Auto V will be set in the fictional southern California town of Los Santos. Players will be able to roam from the mountains to the ocean during the course of the game.
