GTA 5 Release Date: The FB Trail Goes Cold

By  | 

We saw last week that GTA 5 had a new social channel on Facebook. This page had been created months previously, but only just got officially launched. People flocked to like it – 10,000 in just one day. The following day we reported the GTA 5 news about its FB page going live, and mentioned that its likes had risen to 25,000 in 24 hours.

Facebook’s GTA V release date hype perishes

The 25,000 people liking Rockstar’s FB page is understandable, as the company plans to put all its news there, including the GTA 5 release date. The only thing is, there’s been no communication since August, points out Product-Reviews.

There are around 35,000 people (on FB, anyway) desperate for news about GTA 5, so what’s with the radio silence? The like rate has slowed to 10,000 every two days – this is still good, but not what you’d expect, as the approach of the GTA 5 release date should raise the rate a bit.

Companies make FB pages to reach out to their customers, so hopefully this is a strange blip and Rockstar will be a bit more present soon. The page went live for a reason – maybe by accident, by someone hitting the go live button a bit prematurely – like the trailer reveal.

We want to see the second GTA 5 trailer, as there should be some gameplay and character clues. If all these juicy details have to wait until a magazine comes out, it’d be a bit poor. However, if there’s no Facebook activity, this may happen, which is not what all these FB fans want, is it?

Dwayne is a jack of all trades. Not only is he an executive editor and collaborates on many stories here at Autoomobile, but he also does artwork and handles the running of the website on a daily basis. We’re not sure what we would do without Dwayne, especially on those days when we have a great scoop and our servers can’t handle the influx of traffic.
