Grand Theft Auto 5 launches in October, says dev CV

Animator's résumé quickly taken offline.

Grand Theft Auto 5 launches in October 2012, according to the online CV of a Rockstar North character animator.

As reported by Joystiq, both the employee's LinkedIn page and online résumé both list the date next to the GTA5 entry.

Rockstar has so far refused to comment, however, the CV has been taken offline and the LinkedIn page tweaked to remove any mention of the game.

Neither Rockstar nor publisher Take-Two has discussed a potential release window for the next game in the hugely popular open world crime series since it was unveiled late last year.

Worthy of note is the fact that Take-Two currently has BioShock Infinite scheduled for an October launch. Would it want to release two of its biggest franchises in the same month?
