Is GTA 5 Game Informer Australia's Next Cover?
Game Informer Australia is teasing its next issue, which will tie to some as-yet unknown reveal at Gamescom.
Published on Aug 13, 2012
A Facebook post on Game Informer Australia's official page spotted by a user over on GTAforums.com hints at a Gamescom reveal. Could it be GTA 5, or is that just wishful thinking?
The post, which claims that Game Informer Australia would usually have uploaded its upcoming cover by now, explains that all will be revealed on 14 August at 4PM.
Which would place it immediately after EA's Gamescom press conference.
Whether there's any correlation to this or not it's impossible to say, but the post does claim that "the good news, hopefully, will be the reveal itself" which the mag claims they put "more blood and sweat into this issue than any of the previous 32."
Unfortunately there are no more details to go with it. Sony's conference is two hours after the cover's embargo, so it's unlikely to be anything from the PS3 developer either.
Of course, it could be that it's not tied to any conference at all, which means big hitters like GTA 5 or Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 could be in the running for a potential reveal of some kind.
UPDATE: Despite the excitement on the GTA forums, we now know Game Informer Australia's cover is Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2.
