Update: Rockstar has officially confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 5 is expected to launch worldwide during Spring 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. No PC release date was revealed.
"Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we've learned about open world game design," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "We can't wait to share it with fans."
Beginning November 5th, 2012, Grand Theft Auto 5 will be available for pre-order in stores everywhere.
The tweet, which has since been deleted, was posted by the Brighton branch of GAME along with the message ‘Pre-order now!!!!’. The pre-order page on GAME's website still lists the sequel's release date as TBC 2012.
The PlayStation 3 sleeves are not the first time a 'Spring 2013' release date has been confirmed for Grand Theft Auto 5, over the weekend a Polish website 'GTA-Five' leaked a similar poster (below).
