GTA 5 DLC Hinted At By Take-Two; Release Not Until April 2013

Rockstar Games has been releasing information about Grand Theft Auto 5 at an increasing pace. We now know the game's release time frame, and can expect an in-depth article from Game Informer within a week from their time hands on with the game recently. Now, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick teased about Grand Theft Auto 5's DLC during an investor conference call.

"I think you can safely assume that Rockstar, as the label that led the charge in downloadable content with Grand Theft Auto 4, I think you'd have every reason to believe, purely because of the ground-breaking nature of the title itself and the multiplayer in the title, that there's going to be a lot of interesting stuff. But I'll leave that to Rockstar to announce," responded Zelnick to a question about DLC.

Zelnick intends to leave it up to Rockstar to make announcements about DLC.

Rockstar recently released another piece of official Grand Theft Auto 5 artwork along with the words "Spring 2013," indicating when the game will come out. During the same investor call, Take-Two also added that the game won't be released earlier than April 2013.

Previous release date estimates were hoping for a March 2013 release date, but if Take-Two is correct, then this means that gamers will have to wait a bit longer.

Rockstar also recently announced that due to Hurricane Sandy, there have been some setbacks in the release of a new trailer, but that one should be released in the coming weeks. These announcements add up with the promise last month by Rockstar that "lots of info" would be revealed in November.

Game Informer will also be featuring a large spread on their hands-on experience with Grand Theft Auto 5 not too long ago, so expect November to give us the first true glimpses into what is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated games ever.
