UK will likely get it first since Rockstar North is in the UK, and I heard there is a Gaming Store very close physically to Rockstar North's location.

game is probably produced in US tho

Produced? By R* North.

Published? R* HQ NYC.

between the US and UK, UK will get released first, because they are a few hours ahead of us.

With a population of just over 8000 for the line islands group I somehow doubt they will even no about GTA at all. The group is the first in the world time zone wise but I still think New Zealand will be the first to have a legit retail copy

I know it's Wikipedia but it was the easiest to find quickly

More copies will be shipped to north america, so

Don't games get released at midnight only for that area. Some stories release them 30 minutes before. So even with that UK will get them first.

New Zealand as far as relevant places go, then a couple hours later Australians will be getting it.


Not all disc pressing takes place in North America, they would have it done in each major region.

will the US or UK be getting the copy first? just wondering due to time difference.


& as i recall, when GTA:IV came out it was already being live streamed like a week before release..... it might happen again with the hype level of GTA:V being insane



i live in new york & will definitely be going to the midnight launch.

the uk will get it first because gta 5 is made here so that's obvious but honestly I think they both come out at the same time so no delays on either.

It has nothing to do with where it's made. The day of release is the same but it's subject to time zones.

Isn't everything Made in China these days? So probably retailers in China will get them first.

Every time a new game comes out, I always see friends from the UK get it first. Like 2 days in advance (i.e. Halo 4)

No, expect Australian or New Zealander(?) Youtubers to do stuff.

Timezones. How do they work?

seriously though, the pirates will get it first.. probably will be leaked like IV. Hopefully just for a few days instead of one week or so.

New Zealand, Suva (Fiji),Anadyr (russia) and Kiritimati (xmas islands) all have the same timezones which happen to be the earliest and are going to get it first, all the games will be shipped out for an international September 17 Release at exactly midnight, i might have to wait for the mall to open to get my copy if they aren't going to participate but when i do i will NOT post spoiler's because i'll be too busy playing it and by the time i need a break, it would've been released worldwide

That's where the blanc discs may be made but Take Two contracts pressing plants in the US to press the game discs and ship them out. There are millions of blank Blu Ray's and DVD's sitting in pressing plants about to get used.

suggest all Americans (especially on the westcoast) chill on the forums and youtube on release date.
We're bound to see gameplay footage a day or two before release

im retiring from GTA info/speculation after tomorrow lol
