GTA 5 getting re-released version in six months?

Is Grand Theft Auto 5 getting a re-release in six months? Apparently so, according to the DVDASA podcast. The show, which is described by their iTunes page as a "lifestyle, relationship, and entertainment podcast for young adults, with the primary goal of helping youth with relationship, sexuality, gambling, and career problems," features hosts David Choe and Asa Akira, and this week they let slip that regular guest Money Mark was working on GTA 5. Which, you know, doesn't make sense, what with the game having come out already.

"Money Mark is in New York right now," Choe explained before he was cut off by Akira.

"Wait, are we allowed to talk about it?" she asked.

"He's part of Grand Theft Auto?" Choe said, as the rest of the people on the podcast laughed. "How is that a secret? He's playing in the Grand Theft Auto band. In a game that's out right now."

"No, but it's for the six month…" Akira said, trailing off, which was met with a barrage of "Oh shits!" from different people on the show. Later, she said that he was there for the "six month re-release."

What could they be talking about? Well, there are a bunch of possibilities. It could be the rumored PC release, or the speculated next-gen version, or the Wii U version just kidding there's not going to be a Wii U version. Alternatively, it could be a "Game of the Year" edition, complete with some as-of-yet-revealed DLC. 

Or he could be working on something absolutely, totally unrelated, and this could be either a joke or a case of mistaken identity. Either way, you can check it out in the video below--skip to the 1:03:00 mark.

    Seeing this again and after hearing the GR guys talking about the GTA IV DLC and how there was over 6 months between each... It might be that these guys messed up and what it really is... is music and characters for a stand alone GTA V DLC like last time...

    All I can think of is how if this article was put up in the days of when GR first existed, there would have been at least a few boob jokes. Or all boob jokes. Gamesradar's dark past will not be forgotten. ;P

    Well, if this re-release is truly going to happen, it could not be the PC version because that would not technically count as a "re-release" it would just be a regular release for PC. I am hoping for a GOTY edition. In that case I will just wait to actually purchase the game until then. Great game btw. I got it from Redbox and had it for like 2 weeks. AMAZING. Simply wonderful

    There is not definitive definition that says a "re-release" has to be on the same platform. You could say that Minecraft or the Witcher 2 were re-released for consoles.

    To believe or not, aren't we getting a PC release anyhow? In the first quarter of 2014? If this is to be believed: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/grand-theft-auto-v-coming-to-pc-in-early-2014-report/1100-6415514/

    Trust an adult film star to be a reliable source of gaming leaks. As well as, uh, other... leaks.

    It would be better if Asa Akira were getting DP'd
