Grand Theft Auto 5 to release in 2012 for the Wii U?

This is one of those rumours that just won’t go away. Some sources say that GTA V will be on the Wii U, others point in different directions. Now we have a new set of rumours from sources apparently close to Rockstar, who have told Gamespot that Grand Theft Auto development is well under way and that they are actually putting on the finishing touches.

The disheartening thing about this rumour is that the source has made no mention that the platform that the game will be coming to will be the Wii U. All we have to go on is the fact that the source mentioned that a 2012 release was very likely and previous rumours that have said the game will be coming to the Wii U.

The source did say that “It’s the big one,” and that the game’s scale would be vast.

  1. Good news and bad news

    I don’t see why GTA V wouldn’t come to the Wii U, Rockstar have not ruled it out and the Wii got Bully. I seriously doubt that it would be an exclusive, but there might be exclusive game-play using the second screen.

    If they’re putting the finishing touches on it, and yet updated Wii-U development kits have yet to be shipped, it’s unlikely that it’s going to the Wii-U at launch… if ever.

    gta type games need motion controls godfather blackhand on wii was great because of motion

    a built from scratch motion and point gta type game would be amassing…

    to think wii didnt get anything better than blackhand and scarface is proof enough the industry stinks

    It’s possible it may show up on Wii U. Probably not till fall 2012 though.

    Im sure GTA 5 will be on there. Didn’t rockstar spent a year putting on the finishing touches of GTA 4 to cuz that game looks so f-ing amazing! Plus why would rockstar miss out on being the first must have game for a new console?
