Rockstar Games has revealed that Grand Theft Auto V will be coming to PS3 and Xbox360 in Spring 2013.
This isn't really shocking news, considering that UK retailer GAME accidentally leaked the launch window early. Still, after nearly a year of speculation on when the game would be getting released and what platforms it would be getting released on, it's probably a relief for many current-gen console owners to learn that they won't need to wait for -- or buy -- a whole new system before the game sees the light of day.
If you're a PC gamer, no word on whether/when the game will be released there. Writing on their site, Rockstar stated that "(f)or those asking about the PC platform, we're currently focused on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and don't have any details to share about a PC version at this time."
Pre-orders for the game will be opening in less than a week, on Monday, November 5th. If you're wondering exactly how long you'll have to wait, you'll just have to hold on a little while longer until the full-on official announcement is made...but considering that each of Rockstar's last three games (Max Payne 3, Red Dead Redemption and LA Noire) released the third week of May in their respective years, you can probably make a pretty reasonable guess.
