Grand Theft Auto V is easily one of the biggest games of 2013. The game is set to be one of the biggest releases of 2014, too... on PS4, Xbox One and PC. We know that GTA V is coming for the new-gen platforms this fall, we just don't know what the exact date is... maybe, until now.
PC Gamer spotted a retailer listing for Grand Theft Auto V from a Danish outlet called Coolshop, where they have GTA V listed as coming for the PC on November 14th.

Now Rockstar Games has yet to put in a definitive date for GTA V's release on the Xbox One, PS4 or PC. All we know is that the game is coming and it's going to be made available on the higher-tier systems this fall.
November 14th doesn't seem like an outrageous date for the release, either. It's just after the massive October rush, and it gives gamers an extra pay week of breathing room after the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The fall season is expected to be absolutely huge this year, with many brand new IP and returning franchises expected to make their due dates all throughout October and the early parts of November.
While it's easy to think that the undisputed champion of first-day sales might not have a problem shifting units for the new-gen consoles and PC, it should be made known that many gamers already have GTA V on the Xbox 360 or the PS3. Yes, there were some people stating that they would “double dip” or “triple dip” for the game, but a lot has transpired since the release of GTA V last year.
Many of the hold-ups come in the form of the game's lack of multiplayer heists – something that has been substituted with gamers having to make-up their own shenanigans to pass the time. In addition to this, GTA V has been hit with lots of bugs and glitches, and plenty of intervention from Rockstar against cheats and glitchers. All of the hang-ups with GTA Online played a part in helping the hype wane for a new-gen version of GTA V.
In fact, it was previously reported that the pre-orders for Grand Theft Auto V on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have been slowing down greatly. This could impact the overall sales momentum for the game's re-release this fall and it would make sense that a mid-to-late November launch might be the safer window for Rockstar to launch the game in, given all the other big titles coming out beforehand, not to mention compensating for many of the disgruntled players who have become frustrated with the game's online offerings.
Of course, the game could easily regain a lot of its sales momentum based on the modding potential and the strong community efforts to help keep the game in the spotlight... on PC, at least. We'll keep you posted on when the official release date drops for GTA V.
