We all know GTA V is coming out for the PS4 and Xbox One on November 18… don’t we? Well, a new rumor suggests that release date is only half right, and that the PS4 version of GTA V will two weeks earlier.
On October 2, GTA V for PS4 was mistakenly opened up for pre-orders on PSN in Europe. This is how we learned about the game’s large size. However, German website GamePlane.de has also since discovered that the PS4’s download queue lists a release date of November 4. Mysterious pre-order bonuses were also listed.
Now, there are a couple of things that make this credible. First, Sony hinted back in June there would be an incentive to buy GTA V for the PS4. Second, a PlayStation Store exclusive pre-order bonus was revealed yesterday. Players who pre-order GTA V from the PlayStation Store will receive an extra $300k for GTA Online–but only if they pre-order by November 3.
Why cut off the special pre-order bonus two weeks ahead of November 18? Combined with this rumor of a November 4 release date, it sounds suspicious. This is still just a rumor, but a very intriguing one. Do you think GTA V will release early on the PS4? If you’re an Xbox One player, will it upset you if this is true?
