GTA 5: Rockstar apologises for silence, doesn't want to spoil surprises

OXM - The life of a Grand Theft Auto 5 fanatic is a lonely one, consisting of scrolling down Rockstar Newswire threads in search of the yellow post backgrounds that denote official Rockstar commentary. Posting in the comments to its GTA 5 release date announcement, the studio has reassured fans that the shortage of news isn't down to inexplicable malice, or to some grand marketing plan - there's simply nothing to report right now, though Rockstar does concede that it'd rather not spoil aspects of the game ahead of time.

R* North is simply magical

Best studio in the world. How many CoDs have we seen this gen? 7. How many Assassins Creed? 5. How many Halos? 3 (not including ODST). How many Uncharteds? 3. How many Gears? 4. How many Mass Effects? 3. Sants Rows? 3. How many God of Wars? 2. How many Killzones? 2.

How many GTAs. 1. Rockstar North are 5 years making this game already and it looks to deliver. Now that's a studio that deserves respect.

i've been a fan of them since they were "DMA design" with their fantastic N64 game, Body Harvest

Imikida1281d ago

actually 2 gtas, IV and V are both in the ps3/xbox gen.

x5exotic1281d ago

"how many GTAs? 1" Aaaaaaaaaand it sucked.

So their success rate for GTA this gen is 0%. Yep.

Worst attempt at glorifying a studio gone to crap (well it's still awesome for other games, I mean the GTA franchise, completely uninspired after SA)

Irishguy951281d ago

Haha, yeah it's shame GTA4 sucked

GamingManiac1281d ago

@irishguy95 and @x5ecotic

i respect your opinions gentlemen but imo gta 4 is pure concentrated awesomeness, the game mechanics might been a bit sluggish compared to PS2 gta games but it's the most dense, polished, detailed, quality packed and breathtaking GTA ever made, i cannot even imagine how awesome GTA V is Going to be :)

Swiftcricket1281d ago

While I still liked GTA IV I still felt like it was a step back in some ways. I didn't play it for nearly as long as I did San Andreas, but I definitely wouldn't go as far as to say it sucked. I think GTA V is stepping back in the right direction though and bringing back more of the overall fun factor that was found in San Andreas.

They could still release some pictures now and then. Or atleast show some multiplayer stuff.

I mean come on, they been silence now for 4 months and will probably continue. Its ridiculous.

Snookies121281d ago

Lol, how do you think people waiting for FF Versus XIII feel? They haven't gotten so much as a picture in like the past 2 or so years...

Regardless, I'm completely fine with this. We get WAY too many previews, screenshots, videos, etc. nowadays with these online sites. By the time the game actually comes out, it feels like I've already played it because I knew so much about it beforehand. I'm glad Rockstar is doing this, it keeps things a surprise and I'm all for that.

Kingdom Come1281d ago

I'm tired of developer's showing too much footage of games prior to release. I'd rather enter the game and be flooded with surprise gameplay mechanics and be left to discover things for myself...

Root1281d ago

Even a new trailer would be nice

Or how about the map of the game BUT the other areas are blurred out just to give us a peek

Serjikal_Strike1281d ago

I wish sony kept The Last of Us a little more private, just way to many spoilers out already... Im afraid it'll be another Heavy Rain and someone will spoil the ending before the game releases.

OT: R* keep doing what you are doing, totally fine.
