South African online retailer Takealot.com is listing Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V with a release date of 28 June 2013.

The date ties in with a traditional Friday release day of games in South Africa and the UK.  While South African retailer BT Games have revealed release dates before, it’s a first for Takealot.com but does tie in the release window given by Rockstar of Spring [Northern Hemisphere] 2013.  BT Games still has the game’s release date as “TBA”, but a few days ago Amazon listed the game as hitting retail on 19 June 2013, which may indicate that all the retailers are simply speculating at the game’s arrival towards the end of Spring – or Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.  Although, to be fair, June is also more Summer and Winter rather than Spring and Autumn.

Rumour, until confirmed by the powers that be.
