I still need the reassurance of a familiar brand before it's a real story - Tony Maddox, CNN senior VP
Rockstar still has yet to cough on a release date for GTA 5 for PCs and next generation consoles, but said at this year's E3 conference that the titles will tip up "this fall".
However, UK retailer Gameseek is claiming that the PC version, along with PS4 and Xbox One versions, will start shipping on 7 November. It is so confident that it has even started taking pre-orders for the games, with the PC version priced at £36.75, and the PS4 and Xbox One versions at £44.75.
We have little reason not to believe the leaked release date, as the 7 November release date falls on a Friday - typical for a UK game release, and also would see the title arrive on shelves in time for Christmas, with Rockstar no doubt looking to cash in on holiday sales.
Rockstar has yet to comment on Gameseek's release date.
The firm has released some vague information about the new versions of GTA 5, though. Speaking at E3 in June Rockstar said, "Grand Theft Auto V will take full advantage of the power of the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC with across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail.
"Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions all work together to bring new life to the cities, towns, deserts and oceans of Rockstar North's epic reimagining of Southern California." µ
