Can someone find out how Rockstar operates? Go and check the trailer release dates for previous releases and then find out when the actual game was released. Maybe that will give us a clue to how long we have to wait. I'm sure they wouldn't put a trailer out and wait a year for the game to be released. GTA doesn't need that much promotion to sell, these games basically sell themselves.
the first trailer for GTA IV was released on 29 March 2007 and the game came out on 29 April 2008 that was over a year wait
but i think somebody had mentioned that it had gotten pushed back so it might explain the long wait
i think the wait between the first trailers and the release date for other GTAs was only a couple of months...i think it's safe to say it'll come out in 2012 for sure..highly doubt they'd make us wait until 2013 like some others are saying
hopefully fall 2012 at the latest tho
