GTA 4 release date

We have a launch date for GTA 4. On April 29th you’ll be able to head back to Liberty City and cause lots of chaos if this news is true. It’s all based on the end of the tax year and other boring things pointing to that date. All you need to know is save your pennies and pop down the shop on that day. Hopefully you’ll be able to pick up a copy.

Update – GTA 4 release date 1 day early24/04/2008

    I hope they are going to release the pc version shortly after the consoles one. Because I would hate to have to spend money on a game console just for the purpose of enjoying one game. Excellent one though it be

  26. KAGS says:

    I hope all must have heard, that this gta4 game play is smaller compared to gta sa. GTA SA has 3 cities, this GTA4 is having only one, compared to gta sa play area size, but the graphics is what the key here, which will be eye candy i guess. Heard it in one of the forums.

  27. your such a bull crapper your propably a complete novice on the game console

  28. no one you know says:

    hey people,is gta 4 going to be released for pc or not? I want to hear the answer form a R* member or anyone from gamers who made it !!!!

  30. Craig says:

    sadly no announced PC version as of yet.

    its not to say that there WONT be a version released,
    but ive heard that Sony have an agreement with the publisher/software house Take-two – which means they cant(won’t) release for PC , the game when it is a flagship title for sony’s playstation. exactly like San Andreas was delayed by exactly 1 year, when it was first released on Xbox and Playstation.

    its to keep revenue in the console market, i almost considered buying a PS3 when i heard it wont be out on PC anytime soon. then i came to my senses.
    Playstation. Just say No.

    (ps. i wont come back to read responses, so go crazy)

  31. moine says:

    seriously, PS3 beats xbox by a LONGSHOT, but xbox has a better selection and release speed than sony…

  32. Ryan O'Keefe says:

    this game is the bomb…

  33. Harry says:

    Ok fan boys – put it away before someone loses an eye. It doesn’t really matter which console you play this on.

    In truth, I’d like to be able to play this on the PC but as many before me have said, that ain’t gonna happen for quite some time.

    I had a look back at the release dates of GTA 3, GTA:VC and GTA:SA. It’s very interesting actually. First of all, all three were released on PS2 in either October or November (GTA 3 as November) – in each case around 6 months later, the PC version hit the shelves.

    If you take that as a guide, we can expect to see a PC version just in time for Christmas ^_^.

    I wouldn’t be entirely suprised though if R* neglected to release a PC version – piracy is rife on the PC – I’ve even heard it said that some say that piracy is destroying the PC games industry. Combine this fact with the apparent financial difficulties faced by R* (what with them being sued and all), a PC release begins to look unlikely.

    Has anyone any thoughts on how EA’s hostile takeover of Take-Two will effect a PC release? Will it make it more likely given EA’s interest in milking the GTAIV cash cow and their string of PC titles? Will it extend the time we have to wait for a PC game? – EA are bound to restructure >_

  34. Bob Marley says:

    i just bought this game, its awesome, in the manual on the last page, it says the pc version is expected release in December 13th of 2008. check it yourself when you buy the game. i havent played it yet cuz i dont get a 360 until 4 pm today so..

  35. ArScAn says:

    Can anyone confirm this information above???

    Does the last page of the GTA4 360 version manual contain the release date of pc version?

  36. Billy Bob says:

    help me!
    hooker glued my balls to my inner thigh

  37. Blah says:

    Considering December 13th of 2008 is a Saturday and games are released on a Tuesday, I’m gonna say no.

  38. Simon says:

    I just went to my mates Dick Smith store… We opened one up and there is NOT a thing about it in the last 3 pages let alone last page.

  39. PIeter says:

    ****!!!!! it sucks ballz that it did not came out on Pc 1st GTA is made for PC NOT SONY OR ***** XBOX AND WHAT IS THE REALESE DATE FOR PC??????????? MAN IM P****D

  40. KAGS says:

    Reply to Harry’s post: Looking at what he said, hes speaking as if GTA 4 is secured and piracy free with XBOX 360 and PS3 versions. Check online mate, already so many links available for XBOX360 version of GTA 4, and I guess PS3 pirated version will be on its way soon on the internet. I doesnt own any console, so I have to wait till PC version shows up for GTA4. later.

  41. Tobi says:

    Hey guy you have to tell me: where says the manual something of a realease date of he pc version??!
    Nowhere! It says nothing about it! Why are ya talking such a ****?

  42. MatthewC says:

    ****!!!!! it sucks ballz that it did not came out on Pc 1st GTA is made for PC NOT SONY OR ***** XBOX AND WHAT IS THE REALESE DATE FOR PC??????????? MAN IM P****D

    Your grammar is ****…
    stop over-reacting…
    it wasn’t made for pc ffs it made for the consoles…
    just wait and you personally should take a suicide pill while you’re at it… I don’t know why… but it will make the world a better place.

  43. DML says:

    MatthewC, you are wrong. GTA 1 was made for PC.

    Sony DO suck serious balls.
    Microsoft, also, suck some serious balls.

    It’s just the way of the world.

  44. Pierre says:

    I cat wait for this brilliant game.. which were first? Pc? or Sony playstation? consoles, or pc?

    I think Pc is the right answer, because it is.. Go ***** youselfs. The guys making GTA are ****heads. (well we all DO copy the games anyways, so we might just aswell wait…)

    Even if you get it on PC homie, it’s still a Microsoft system. You do such a wonderful job putting down Microsoft, yet you use their software on your computer.


  46. TruXter says:

    Pc version?

    No one in my forums mentioned anything about a release date being in the manual.
    That “eagle eye reader” Is f.o.s.

  47. cRUEL says:

    u r dumb *** Perfekt.. not only microsoft we have today
    gta 1 was from PC.. i ve played all till san andreas.
    now take-two are forgetting about us (PC gamers)

  48. lovely... says:

    hey man, im the f**k waiting for GTA4 pc version…… lolz plzzzzz inform me on ma email ( its release date! X_BOX 360, & all PS people u f**king njoyyyyy…

  49. GKlz says:

    wen is it going to relese in pc
    imean GTA 4???????????

  50. It’s all about money to these greedy game company. Thats seriously the bottom line. To NOT release it for the PC means people like myself have to go out and buy a PS or a XBox, (hmm, how much do they cost?), then honestly buy a decent TV to play it on (how much dose that cost?). Then after all of that $$$, then, just then have the money for the game? WTF.

    Thats Bullsh*t. I personally hate game systems. There cheap, and all part of the corperate greed to suck this group of people into it. Besides, I hate the consol, I’d rather have a mouse any day. I can’t stand the inaccuracy of a damn joystick button thing.

    If GTA4 is not released for the PC I’m going to be *****. Oh btw, about microsoft, it dose suck. What about releasing it for MAC?

  51. Steve says:

    If they publish it to PC: I buy.
    I don’t have a console: end of story.

    console gamers had HALO (would have been PC) and MGS etc etc.

    PC-ers had GTA.

    Now it’s all down to consoles… bah. :(

  52. Vixen says:

    In all honesty, the only things that I find great about the new GTA are the explosion graphics and the collision physics. The story line was sub-par for GTA IV, and the “amazing” graphics – lagging behind most other games.

    However, I still would love to see it come out for PC. It, originally, was a PC title, and for RockStar to defect, I figure thats just a mistake.

  53. joker says:

    hey whts goin on here i thought it was relereing in october why in april anyway i have 512 mb ram and 256 mb grafic wuld that be enuth??

  54. Ace says:

    Just a quicky Joker and im sure ul never read this but il write for the amusement of any other surfers who read this page…..

    Ur puny system with 512mb ram n a 256mb graphics card will prob melt if you try to install GTA IV when it comes out on the 21st Nov so don’t bother buying unless you’ve been upgrading.
