Grand Theft Auto V will release in spring 2013, Rockstar has officially confirmed.


New York based parent company Take Two announced today to investors that GTA V will launch first on Xbox 360 and PS3.

"Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we've learned about open world game design," said Rockstar Games co-founder Sam Houser. "We can't wait to share it with fans."

However, no details on the PC edition have been mentioned.

Take Two said Grand Theft Auto 5 is the "most ambitious title in the series to date".

"Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean."

The publisher has delayed its financial briefing due to Hurricane Sandy related disruptions.

Firm GTA 5 details will arrive next Thursday, November 8 when a digital edition of the latest issue of Game Informer is released.

Rockstar released the last batch of GTA 5 screenshots in August, showing off a police chase featuring plenty of cars and a chopper.
