Release is a bubblegum featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.
It is produced by Candybox. In GTA Vice City Stories, Release has three different flavours sold in all Verdi Groceries stores but only two are sold in FIDL stores. However, the FIDL store in Washington Beach sell all three flavours. It is also advertised on a billboard outside Fort Baxter Air Base as well as the Vice City Inquirer.
In GTA IV, the player can download a Release theme for their phone via Vipluxuryringtones.com. Release is advertised on the Wave 103 and the slogans is "Shoots a load in your mouth!".
In GTA V, it is found inside 24/7, Limited Service and Rob's Liquor stores all over San Andreas, with the new slogan "You chew, you suck, then POW!".
The gum may be based on Freshen Up Gum, a similar liquid filled chewing gum.
- Release Gum is a sponsor of the Venturas Poker Challenge on Weazel in GTA IV.
- Their slogans and name are a clear reference to oral sex, by enhancing the flavor of the semen when shot (or maybe released, hence the name) in the mouth, keeping the Rockstar's sexual innuendos.
