We do know that some of you were disappointed with GTA V’s absence from yesterday’s Take-Two conference. A lot of gamers believed that we could be getting a release date, but as you may have guessed, that never happened. And even though Rockstar has already stated that GTA V won’t be present at this year’s GamesCom, something is definitely going on in the background. How we know that? Well thanks to the Epsilon Program Website – a website that is home to the biggest religious cult in San Andreas – that was recently updated.
In case you’re unaware of, this website was created by Rockstar themselves, so no. This is not a fan-made webpage. This is from the development team of GTA V and is official. And since the website was updated, we can pretty much assure that GTA V’s viral marketing is a GO.
As with all viral marketing tricks, the Epsilon Program website has information that is irrelevant to what most of you will be looking for (meaning screenshots or a possible release date). Since this is a website for San Andreas biggest religious cult, it is full of religious mumbo-jumbo stuff and some mad facts about the Earth.
Feel free to speculate on anything, but don’t get your hopes up. For example, the PO box number from this web site is 10012. Is Rockstar implying that GTA V will be released this October (10 – 2012) ? If not, perhaps a new trailer or a hint for a big announcement? Yeap, mere speculation but that’s the purpose of such viral marketing tricks, no?
Rockstar has also created a Twitter account for the Epsilon Program.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
