GTA 5: Growing Evidence Suggests Gamescom Appearance
The rumours and counter-rumours persist, but with Take Two deciding to hold an investor call this month, GTA 5 could still make it to Gamescom in August.

GTA 5 could still make an appearance at Gamescom in Cologne next month, if recent evidence is any indication.
Although a LinkedIn profile claiming GTA 5 would be in Cologne turned out to be fake, Take Two has now brought forward an investor-relations call for first-quarter fiscal 2013 earnings.
Last year, the Take Two revealed its first-quarter results on 8 August, but will speak to shareholders on 31 July this year instead.
Gamescom will be open to the public from 16-19 August, with press invited to attend from 15 August.
The Gamescom website actually listed the Take Two booth at Gamescom 'Rockstar Games c/o Take Two' as recently as 9 May this year.
The booth in question is rather large and reserved for the press-only section, hall 5, rather than public.
The site listing has now been edited so that Rockstar are no longer mentioned, although interestingly, the site does return Take Two as a result when searching for Rockstar.
This week's MCV confirms that GTA 5 Gamescom rumours persist, and quote 2K's Markus Wilding as saying "2K is going to be at Gamescom in a big way."
While the 2K label doesn't technically include Rockstar, we can only think of one game bigger than XCOM, BioShock Infinite and Borderlands 2.
