Max Payne 3 Delayed Until May, Debunks GTA 5 Release Date Rumours

[Update]
Rockstar has confirmed that Max Payne 3 will hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on 15 May in North America, and 18 May in Europe - it'll follow on PC on 29 May and 1 June in each respective territory.

[Original story]
Max Payne 3's release date has been bumped from March to May 2012, publisher Take-Two has confirmed.

Rockstar is set to go into further detail later today.

Take-Two also revealed that the bump pushes Max Payne 3 into the 2012/2013 financial year, and that it will shave $210 - $230 million off it's current financial expectations - suggesting a direct revenue target for Rockstar's third-person shooter.

"We do not take changes to our release schedule lightly, and this short delay will ensure that Max Payne 3 delivers the highest quality, groundbreaking entertainment experience that is expected from our company," said Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick.

Take-Two also hinted at "other titles yet to be announced for release" in fiscal 2013.

Early rumours had GTA 5's release date down as May, but Max Payne 3's shift now appears to make that highly unlikely.

Beware Of GTA V Beta Offers, gta5freebeta.com and others are a SCAM!!!

There is a rogue site doing the rounds lately claiming to be GTA V beta. it is infact a scam and no such thing exists. the site in question is gta5freebeta.com and it states:


"Welcome to gta5freebeta.com, the only place where you can get the Grand Theft Auto 5 beta for free! We give out only 300 beta downloads a week because of the limited amount we have due to popularity. Because of this, you are limtied to one(1) download per person. The betas work and are 100% functional."


Do not fall for this junk. it could be a virus or something. no GTAV beta exists. please share this post with your friends to warn them too.


Another site is http://betagtav.com/ which again is a scam. if you know of any others please do leave a comment and we will post it up.


Update: here is another fake scam site offering GTAV beta http://gtavbeta.co.cc/

GTA V coming 2013?

Some sources have said May or June, which is encouraging. But recent European evidence points toward a longer a wait.


According to some info posted in the GTAForums, estimated release dates for Grand Theft Auto V have been found at a German and Norwegian retailer (GameStop.de and GameZone.no).


It's obvious that both only have placeholder dates, but the interesting part is that both dates are in 2013; March 2013, to be more exact. The German GameStop site gives GTAV a March 18, 2013 date, while GameZone.no says it'll be here on March 31, 2013. Now, games can launch later in Europe but recently, most big titles release only a few days later in Europe as compared to the North American launch. Another point to consider is that Rockstar's Max Payne 3 is set for a release this March, so many are wondering if GTAV would be on store shelves as soon as May...


Well, as far as we're concerned, the sooner the better.
