Rockstar, Don't Announce GTA V This Summer "Rumours concerning the next Grand Theft Auto game spans back a good year, from retailer listings, analyst predictions and even one rumour that said the game will be set in Rockstar's own take on Hollywood. GTA V was also rumoured to have some presence at E3 this year, but alas just following the release of L.A. Noire, Rockstar had nothing to show at the expo this year. Not even a teaser. But wait, that's a good thing, especially considering all the games coming out this holiday season. Now the latest in rumours say that GTA V is set to make a splash this Summer. Is that a good idea?"

I hope it comes out soon so, yes, I do hope they announce it this summer. As long as they get started on one for the next gen once they are able. I wouldnt want this one to delay the production of the PS4 / X720 version in years to come.

R* released 3 GTA games last gen, yet we have only seen one this gen (console games) along with the PSP titles that were brought over to the PS2

idk why they are being so secretive, plus with the way the gaming industry has evolved you would expect a leak of some footage/pics yet we haven't seen anything

R* hasn't even announced GTA V, i don't understand the shift from last gen where everything now is so secretive and we haven't gotten any confirmation in the first place

GTA is old now. COD is current.

I don't know where I read it but apparently Rockstar counts The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony as what VC and SA were to GTA3.

I personally hope they wait until next generation of consoles for GTA 5. I also hope they make it more fun and have more variety in things to do. They need to make GTA 5 more like GTA San Andreas or Vice City. Bring back skydiving, lifting weights, eating, getting fat, jetplanes, and controller-input cheat codes.

R1, R2, L1, R2, left, down, right, up, left, down, right, up. That was so easy to do. Using the cell phone on the game was a pain in the rear.

Also, bring us an HD GTA Collection with all three PS2 GTA games on one bluray disc. I'd pay a full $60 for that, since I don't care to play my copy of GTA 4. lol

As long as it comes out sometime next year I don't care when they announce it.

Shaman2712d ago

WTF is this stupid article?Not to announce just so they make a big splash at next years E3?New GTA is not your regular game where R* have to look for opportunity to show it to as many as people its possible.Even my grandma knows what GTA is and when GTA is announced every gamer will know it.Next GTA doesn't need E3 or some fancy convention.It needs to be announced ASAP!

Godchild10202712d ago

I rather have an announcement with a release day. And not just any release date a concrete release date that will not change at all.

ShawnCollier2712d ago

If they announce it too early they either have to show off unpolished in-progress work (causing people to whine that there's graphical issues) or put out stuff they may not be able to reach graphically (causing people to whine once the game is actually released).

ASAP isn't always best.

Baka-akaB2712d ago (Edited 2712d ago )

er no , they could just do what they already did.

put out just a teaser for a while .

Besides there will be a few whiners whatever they do

RayRay362712d ago

We seen 3 GTA's on the PS2 in 4 years. In the 5 year life of the PS3 we've seen one. Im not thinkin if they announced it now it would be considered ASAP.

Hardedge2712d ago

An actual release date would be nice. Otherwise, I don't really care if they make an announcement in the Summer seeing as the game probably won't be out for a good while anyway.

Cereal2712d ago

GTA5 won't be out until next-gen and with Wii U coming out next year it's better to wait anyways as it could be on all 3 consoles and it would give them time to make an actual improvement rather than just rehashing GTA4 (which was a huge disappointment).

If there is any other GTA game out this gen then it would likely either be a downloadable title for PSN/XBL or a portable title for 3DS/Vita.

Not to mention Max Payne 3 & Agent haven't even came out yet and we know hardly anything about those games (especially the PS3 exclusive Agent). I doubt they would bother announcing a GTA5. At best they may port over the older games in HD.

Baka-akaB2712d ago (Edited 2712d ago )

I doubt they will wait that long . The only new hardware they probably waited upon was most likely the wii u , so they could propose roughly the same experience , graphics and content wise on all 3 platforms , ensuring themselves athird serving of the console pie instead of just two .
