You know what I learned today? That a date listed on a CV means – apparently rather concretely – that said date is the final, absolute date that a game will come out.
A game that, by my reckoning, is absolutely not a matter of months away from release. A game that would end up running at the same time as stablemate Bioshock Infinite and presumably mid-DLC for Max Paye 3.
That game? Grand Theft Auto V.
Think of poor old Alex o’Dwyer, character animator over at Rockstar. He listed October 2012 as the date that GTA V was to be finished as part of his CV.
If you hadn’t heard of him before, you’ll know him now. And the date has since vanished from his resume and LinkedIn profile, making the news even more true, although caches and screengrabs of the evidence abound.
It’s all very exciting.
