According to Germany’s online GameStop shopfront, you can expect to be jacking cars, running drugs and increasing your wanted level in a shiny new GTA game on 15 January 2012.

A sequel to Rockstar’s 2008 GTA IV has been rumoured for some time now. Most of those rumours came off the back of revealed casting calls for voice actors. Judging by the descriptions in those casting calls, the characters requiring voice-overs sounded as if they came straight out of a GTA game.

Exactly where Grand Theft Auto 5 will be set is still unknown although rumours suggest a return to the expansive San Andreas. GameStop’s dating of GTA 5 is the latest in the rumour mill, which will probably be dismantled by an official reveal at this year’s E3 in June.
