San Andreas-based GTA site gets a sly update and new Twitter feed. Almost as if new GTA 5 info is coming soon...

As explained this morning, despite the collective hopes of a billion fanboys, last night's big investors' call to Take-Two spectacularly failed to reveal the long-awaited GTA 5 release date. But while all eyes have been glued to such obvious potential sources of info, a stealthy website update has hinted that said peskily, fiendishly, damnably elusive GTA 5 release date might not actually be far off an unveiling. How? It's all thanks to the resurgence of some fictional cultists.

The site in question belongs to The Epsilon Program, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas' thinly-disguised parody of Scientology. The site has been kicking around since the original San Andreas' hype window was opened, but it now contains something that it didn't have back then. Something, in fact, that couldn't have existed back then. Details of a Twitter feed. 

Yep, The Epsilonions have gone social. Their new source of googly-eyed 140-characters-or-less propaganda can be found at https://twitter.com/EpsilonismToday. What does this mean? It means that Grand Theft Auto V's viral campaign is ready to go live. With Max Payne 3 pretty much out of the way in terms being a primary hype focus, now would make sense in terms of scheduling (let's face it, Rockstar loves squeezing every last bit of publicity it can out of each of its games, and it does not like to self-cannibalise), so expect momentum to pick up soon. There are only three tweets on the account at the min, but I'd advise you to get it followed ASAP.

Paranoiac-over-analysis-of-innocuous-online-data cannons on stand-by, people. You never know when an insanely convoluted coded message is going to turn up disguised as a tweet about a cult leader's sandwiches.

    I'd just like to point out that this is a shot at mainstream religion in general, not just scientology. Good on you rockstar.
