UPDATE: Rockstar just shared with us three more screenshots and gave us an update on when they’ll be revealing more details on the game. Check out the latest images from GTA V here and find out when Rockstar will shed more light on the game. In addition to that we’ve discovered that Grand Theft Auto V may release on the Wii U.
ORIGINAL POST: Rockstar Games fielded some questions about why they are being so quiet on Grand Theft Auto V.
The good news is that we have a few new screen shots from the game and it appears everything it going well with development. Oh and Rockstar confirmed that players will be able to fly planes across Los Santos in the game.
The bad news is that we likely won’t hear anything again about the game for a while. My personal prediction is for a Spring 2013 release date of May 2013, in line with Red Dead Redemption and LA Noire.
Rockstar Games had this to say:
We are very busy working on the game! Everything is going well, but the game is a huge project. We should have more information and some new assets for you soon.
As we have said before, we have often had long gaps between asset releases on previous games and will continue to do so in the future. We are sorry if you find this frustrating, but please understand, we don’t do this because we ‘don’t care about our fans’ ‘don’t respect our fans’ ‘hate GTA fans etc’ – precisely the opposite! We do it because we want to make sure we only release 100% correct information, and because we want to keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it. The only things we care about are that you enjoy the experience of actually playing the game and that we release accurate information. We just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and will not be for a while yet. We did, however, manage to sneak a quick screenshot out for you… it’s not much, but we thought it was pretty fun.
….We will try and get some more screens for you soon and then another trailer when we are ready.
And they were kind enough to give us two new screenshots from Grand Theft Auto V. They look very nice but easily 360/PS3 type visuals so anyone hoping for a surprise next generation reveal will be disappointed.
