You might be forgiven for thinking that Rockstar Games
had taken a vow of silence regarding Grand Theft Auto V
, but the team has finally spoken. Naturally, there are going to be plenty of rumours, videos and fakes running amuck on the internet until the game is released. The team stated that it is taking a hard-and-fast “no comment” rule regarding speculation and rumours. However, Rockstar did warn players that “there is absolutely no ‘beta’ test for the game.” Any advertisements of one that you see online are likely to be phishing scams, so steer clear.
The team has released two screenshots and promised that more, along with a trailer, are on the way. In a Q&A with fans, Rockstar posted that it wanted to release 100% correct information, but also “keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it.”
Finally, Rockstar posted that Grand Theft Auto V will be its “biggest open world game to date.” While Grand Theft Auto IV was too small for planes to work properly, players will be able to take to the skies in Grand Theft Auto V. You can get an idea of the scale and magnitude of the city in one of the screenshots posted too. A chopper could very easily be the best way to get around: practical, yet stylish.
Hopefully we won’t be kept waiting for more news. A trailer is promised and Rockstar is scheduled to appear at Gamescom
(August 15-19), so keep those fingers crossed.
