It looks like GameStop in Kilkenny have let the cat out of the bag
UPDATE: GameStop official response “The date isn’t legit, as I have mention TBC, just had to put a date for the event and this would be around Rockstar’s usual release dates”
The Killkenny branch (for non Irish viewers, this is a county in the South-East) created a Facebook event detailing the launch with a date of May 27th, but as this is a Monday and a midnight launch it would mean GTA V could be on shelves on May 28th. This would coincide with the Spring release date that Rockstar confirmed back in October. The event description is as follows:
Nope, that is not a typo we are hosting our first Very Important Customer Midnight Launch for GTA V and you are all invited. So prebook your copy as soon as possible, we have a free poster to give away with each deposit and we will do a draw on the night for ALL Prebook customers to Win a Free Copy of the game!!!
The event can be viewed below, along with a comment from the branch saying “Date to be confirmed :)”
As soon as TGI find out if this is true, you’ll be the first to find out. GTA V is set for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 sometime this Spring (May 28th). Follow TGI on Twitter: :Gaming_Indo
