Hi there,

I recently noticed on the Rockstar websites an image showing the multiplayer line up of which developers join fans of games to play with them.

The image is:

Would Rockstar really play with GTA IV players whining about the release date? Does this give us an indication that there will be a release date by then and this is to up the hype & get people playing GTA IV?

Sorry if I'm off the ball track - just thought it was interesting.

If there's no hint at the release date before August 30th I'd be quite surprised.

I noticed it too and considered the same thing you did.
But for now i am done with guessing when there might be new information, it comes when it comes so i might as well just suck it up and be patient.

Once again it's 7 months, not 8.

It is interesting, but it's not automatically a sign that new info would come out.

I don't think it means anything. I think they just included it to keep all the fans happy, who have one game but not the others. Same reason they included RDR too.

and then

They're just probably going to mute the players that are asking for informaition/release date, which means that it will be a very quiet multiplayer event sneaky2.gif icon14.gif

This is silly. It's like saying "The Earth will be destroyed within 980 quadrillion years". Its much easier to just be specific and precise.

So lets be more precise. The Earth will be destroyed within 4.5 billion years, and we will have lots of GTAV info within 2 weeks. See? I just eliminated a 3 month countdown to a .5 month countdown colgate.gif

You must be kidding.
XBOX360 is the console that is in danger of getting your machine broken if you mess with the modders...
Not PC...

Well, hopefully I'll be home on that day and I can watch the live stream and also chat on Rockstar Social Club. Hell, before they even start there first Race/team deathmatch or whatever many people are gonna be asking when the game will release or perhaps abuse Rockstar Games.

Hopefully they give us a hint to the release date and when a new trailer releases or it could just be another multiplayer event they wanted to do. I'll stay tuned for this one...

Nice find but any gtaV info near this time will be coincidental imo


Untill max Payne was on its way out they were still doing gtaIV with no info
by 30th august Id say its just a different game/event for a change up

I too noticed that, thought about making a topic, got scared, didn't.

It's a worrisome development. Like cisk said, I hope it's a farewell match.

I doubt that the people who work the multiplayer events have any clue about the calender of GTA V.

If they are so tight lipped about the game I'm sure some logistics poster for general games made by R* isn't connected

these aren't anything special, especially to hold back some news for GTA V. These don't generate money.

"GTA V: We're releasing a new trailer today (same day as a multi player event)
GTA IV: No you can't. People must play with us on an old game that doesn't generate any more money!!
GTA V: Okay.jpg, we'll have to wait."

Seriously, think about it...

Maybe we can harrass some of those R* employees on our xbox's and Ps3s to give us some info biggrin.gif

LoL jokes aside, this doesn't mean much and I'm tired of looking for hints. Coz' R* doesn't leave clues, they come out of the blue rampage_ani.gif

I think that the second trailer will come out in the last week of August. The calendar easter egg in MP3 has the last week of August circled.

user posted image

This is either August 2012 or May 2013, I'm leaning towards August... Maybe it's both with the release in May... Who knows? Why's the 15th also circled though? hmm...
