GTA 5 coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC in June, claims retailer

GTA 5 is tipped to arrive on the PS4, Xbox One and PC in June, according to a German retailer.

We haven’t heard rumours about the next-gen and PC versions of GTA 5 for a little while now, but a German retail manager has just given us a loose release date.

According to “Tech Nick”, manager of German electronic retailer Saturn.de, all three GTA 5 versions will arrive sometime in June.

“The release of GTA 5 for PC, Xbox One and PS4 is expected in June #rumours”, tweeted Tech Nick.

Although he claims this is just a rumour, someone with a senior retail position could have information laced with some truth.

In March 2014, Portuguese online retailer Worten launched a paid pre-order page for GTA 5 on PS4, which has now been taken down.

When contacted directly, a Worten spokesperson explained “we have the information that Worgen stores will sell the game in question.”

At the end of 2013, both the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game were listed on Amazon Germany before being swiftly removed.

Despite an ever expanding petition for a PC edition of GTA 5 (which now has over 680,000 signatures), Rockstar hasn’t mentioned a PC or next-gen version of the game since it was launched in September 2013.

“We don’t have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or PC platform release at this time and we are completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now,” said Rockstar Games in July 2013.

However, the developer did add that it would work to bring GTA 5 to PS4 and Xbox One, if it became an “appropriate business opportunity.”

Seeing as the PS4 sales have apparently jumped 106 per cent since the release of inFamous: Second Son, with the last recorded figure at 6 million worldwide for the PS4 in March. At the end of December, over 3 million for the Xbox One consoles had been sold.

It seems that every day, every other day there's an announcement on when GTA5 is coming to PC, But the source is always something like an estranged German retailer.... Wtf?
Can you guys please stop posting this crap so you can get hits on your website.....
Until Rockstar makes the official announcement all this keeps doing is teasing and pissing people off...

I Understand what you are saying but to be fair I have seen this news on several other sites today so they are not really doing anything different to everyone else.

We all know that it is coming and June wouldn't surprise me as these early retail rumours tend to be right.

Why is it always an outside of the US telling us this bullshit? There hasn't even been a teaser trailer or any announcements by Rockstar. Sorry to give everyone the bad news but, how the hell can they release a game this big in a couple of months without the proper announcements? Think about it, they have to port it over, they have to optimize it, etc. That's gonna take longer than a couple of months. Getting 'rid of all of the bugs, why would they release it if It's coming to Playstation Now?

Well, I never said this was the only website at fault :-P
I was referring to all websites/blogs that keep doing this over and over.
So thanks for sharing and proving my point :-)

PS - every, EVERY time a site does this, it's a different source and a different date. Also, the story is usually "updated" less than 48 hours later to announce the listing has been taken down from their source. (probably at the request of Rockstar who hasn't even announced anything themselves)
