A retail source has dismissed claims that Grand Theft Auto V will release on November 23.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com on the grounds of anonymity, our retail source told us that he would "bet my wife, my house and your life on [GTA V] not coming out this year".

Earlier today, online retailer Zavvi told Eurogamer Portugal that the November 23 release date advertised on its website was "the release date forwarded by [its] supplier".

"If the release date change, our website will be updated immediately," it added.

Rockstar has yet to officially announce a release date for GTA V.

The publisher does appear to be ramping up publicity for the title, however. It has already released two asset drops this week, detailing the game's transport and leisure systems.

Could a release date be next?
