It appears that Rockstar, the makers of such games as GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption and others will not be exhibiting at E3.
i bet during microsoft's press conference this is shown as a timed exclusive or dlc timed exclusive game with a new trailer and thatll be it, sort of like when GTA IV was shown at e3. but as to when it comes out though who knows...
I don't think R* would do that again if they did I'd be really surprised. It made sense from a business stand point last time but I don't think it ended up selling as well as they thought it would being a timed exclusive But R* did make good money before the game even came out so we'll see. Either way I'm confident R* will give us a full game anyway they never half ass any of their work. And always have good DLC to back it up.
Didn't think it would sell that well? It's still in the top 10 played games on XBL even after 4 years. http://majornelson.com/2012...
I know it sold well its GTA, I'm talking about the DLC, for being a timed exclusive I remember an article saying it didn't sell as much as Microsoft expected it to.
just one more reason no gta v this year. even rockstar isn't gonna launch a game without a big date announcement so they can nab preorders.
GTA 5 no-show at E3 guarantees it isn't coming out this year, not even a 1% chance. Historically when GTA is at E3, it always releases later that year in Oct. Given the development of what has been shown already the game definitely isn't ready to release this year so their absence just makes sense.
Laughable that there are at least 7 people holding on to the idea that GTA V will launch this year.
I dont think they need to, Its "Rockstar" makers of GTA, who dosnt know that one? and who dosnt know that GTA5 will be amazing!
Rockstar has a tendency not to show at E3. Nothing new here
Theres no way they would appear at Microsoft's press conference, for a game as big as GTAV they want maximum coverage and all cameras will be on Sony & Nintendo
Considering Microsoft's E3 conference is pretty much treated as a special television event, airing live on SPIKE TV for the second year in a row next month, I'm pretty sure the most cameras will be on Microsoft.
they'll either be there and steal the show, or they'll have their own press conference sometime after e3 IMO.
It'd be a shocker if they showed up at Nintendo's for sure. This just reminds me of Jaffe last year and the "Nope not gonna be there" interview/line, then him being spotted before the event.
they will release a trailer a day or 2 before E3 so all anyone will talk about is GTA5. they are bigger than E3 also to people saying MS conference i don't think so, the DLC didn't sell as well as RS hoped as exclusive so this time expect them to launch on both consoles at same time, if there is dlc
Umm...this article is dumb. It clearly states that take-two interactive will be there and they own rockstar.
Lol, you'll never see a GTA timed exclusive on a console again. There's too much money to be made.
Well take two will be there, so i expect R* to have some presence. They don't really do E3 anyway, they seem to do things on their own time.
They reach that point where they don't have to show, just like valve. U know u going to buy it and love it.
They never attend these things. This isn't news.
I don't recall ever seeing Rockstar at E3 before anyway. Even though Take Two will be there, I doubt anything Rockstar's been working on will be shown.
They used to in the san andreas days. Havent been since then though. Also what happened to agent? Im still waiting on that.
Yeah i want to know about agent.It's been 2 yearn without info.Last thing they told on R* web was it's shaping up to be spectacular...
R* are never at E3 really. I wish they were.
I know what you mean. I wish they would demo stuff and show off everything they got going on but that's how they roll. They are my favorite developers so it's pretty lame waiting around for new info on anything they do. But that does make whenever they do have reveals that much better. R* for life... GROVE STREET OG ON THA SET BUSTA!!!
I hope at least in sony press conference they show up anything about agent, I would be satisfied if they gave out just information.
Even if they just showed the logo again. That'd be something.
Whoever wrote this article is an idiot. Rockstar will most likely be showing there games at sony or microsoft's booths. Plus Rockstar are on the show plan. There called Take-Two Interactive!
Rockstar is never officially at E3, its usually someone else who introduces their trailers at the press conferences. I'm sure there will be a new GTA5 trailer of some sort.
Exactly. They never really show anything. That's mainly due to the fact that it's so hard to put together a demo for their games.
I think we have to set it on our minds that they will never attend E3. :'(
I'd be willing to bet GTA V makes an appearance during Microsofts' conference.
R* is too big for E3....
I thought a I read a rumor on this site that Sony ponied up the benjamins to have the timed dlc this time around.
@UpTop If MS worked out a deal with RockStar to get exclusive content first that'll be HUGE you serious? Or for Sony, whoever they worked the deal with, that would be a megaton announcement. That means exclusive ad rights, exclusive game footage/publicity. And maps coming first on whatever console. If it was big back in GTA 4 times it would be waaay bigger now. look at this way Sony pre- order sales at: nearly 8 mill MS: at 5 mill Sony with the exclusive content or Vice versa thats just an example, that's huge though. I've done some thinking, I believe if R* would of worked out a deal with either company, I think it would be MS console. Only because Sony working things out with "Agent", they're either trying to secure the exclusitivety or maybe exclusive content (If Multiplatform)
It's no surprise that Rockstar isn't showing up at E3
When you have to put out stuff that compares with other developer's cutting edge work? That isn't a Rockstar specialty.
They will be showing their game 1 day before E3 they will be the first ! because apperntly their game gtav is too good to be in E3 and they could steel the spotlight of everyone so they will make gameplays and everything 1 day before e3!
Plus rockstar arnt going to just reveal GTAV but also AGENT! but GTAV. As i said Rockstar are too big for e3 or mainly GTAV is so they will have a confrence 1 day before e3!
here`s my evidence http://playstationlifestyle...
Obviously they're focusing on max Payne...doubt we'll see much on gta V till the fall....
Rockstar doesn't go to E3. . Instead they release trailers at opportune times to garner all the media attention. . And guess what? It works.
Couldn't have said it better.. it's really smart of them.. :P
because E3 is bs anyway. nobody cares about it any more.
I guess Pachter was right. Expect an announcement June 3rd to overshadow all E3 announcements
Come on it just says wont be exhibiting, you can expect them to show up in anyone of the big 3 press conferences. plus they are always marked under take two not as a separate company. Who ever wrote this article doesn't know much about the industry!!
i wouldnt be surprised if they try releasing it with zero gameplay videos again
Sony MS or Ninty! with Sony being the one i'm most interested in GTA5 being shown a day before E3 means didly squat to me I've never been a fan of the franchise! I'm looking forward most Dead Space 3 being announced, Gameplay from AC3 being demo'd on PS3, RE6 gameplay being most likely demo'd on Xbox 360 and The Last of Us being shown to OWN the show... oh yeah and Expect a few megatons from Ninty and its Wii-U. I haven't purchased one single R* game this gen and I'm fine, their games came and went as fast as they were announced for me So people can put there pennies in GTA5. Historically Rockstar has never attended E3, but Take 2 has shown some of their games to the press at this trade show!
Pretty obvious really, Rstar haven announced a release date then delayed it 6 months yet like they have every time they release a game
Rockstar remind me of the band Tool. They do things their own way, rarely do publicity, only drop new material every 5 years or so. But when they do, everyone goes apeshit for it!
No really. Rockstar never comes to E3. Why do we go threw this cycle every year
So is Agent officially vaporware now? Either that or it will be a next gen launch title.
Well Max Payne 3 was scheduled for 2009 according to Wikipedia. I like how they polish all their games and take their time to release them.
Good. Fuck the ESA for supporting SOPA and PIPA. Why give these people money? We don't need E3. Just make your announcements and put it online.
They will announce stuff the day before and steal the show without even being there ;)
Whats new. When was Rockstar at E3 last?
Rockstar .... Where even ....no news.... is Big news !!!
