New GTA 5 pictures emerge ahead of launch

New GTA 5 pictures have emerged online ahead of the eagerly awaited spring 2013 GTA 5 release date.

Adding to a selection of already formally unveiled GAT 5 artwork, the latest GTA 5 picture has been spotted on as yet unused in-store marketing materials for retailers. Failing to offer further indication as to the eagerly anticipated GTA 5 release date, the new GTA picture sports the now familiar arrival time of spring 2013.

Offering new insight into the nature of the upcoming GTA 5 release, the latest GTA 5 picture shows one of the game’s characters attempting to escape a police helicopter on a motorbike whilst brandishing a compact sub-machine gun.

Although not an in-game screen shot, the newly unveiled GTA 5 artwork has leaked courtesy of US industry retailer GameStop. The new GTA 5 artwork follows a selection of GTA 5 pictures that have shown off a raft of the game’s upcoming vehicle options with cars, planes, bikes and speedboats all set to feature.

GTA 5 Rumours
Whilst publisher Rockstar was revealed a GTA 5 release date will be held in ‘Spring 2013’, the gaming giant has yet to offer a more concrete date of arrival for the eagerly awaited addition to the much loved and iconic Grand Theft Auto gaming franchise.

Given the title’s still somewhat speculative date of arrival, a number of GTA 5 release date rumours have done the rounds in recent weeks with retailers offering a selection of potential launch dates for the game. Whilst Amazon has suggested the game will land as late as June 19, supermarket giant Tesco has suggested a GTA 5 launch will take place on March 12.

Elsewhere, German gaming retailer Saturn has offered a potential March 15 GTA 5 release date, with the game already available for pre-order from a wide variety of outlets.

As well as offering speculative GTA 5 release date reports, recent GTA 5 rumours have suggested Rockstar will make the game available beyond its confirmed Xbox 360 and PS3 launch platforms with a GTA 5 PC release date reportedly set to follow.
