Rockstar Games has just announced that Grand Theft Auto V is in full development after yesterday’s release of the game’s first trailer. Grand Theft Auto V will be set in the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created. I am trying to imagine what online multiplayer in the GTA universe will be like, pure nonsense I’m sure and I’ll love every minute of it.
A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California. That means that we will be on our hustle trying to get that American Dream that everyone seems to be after. I loved the past GTA’s that were set in different decades in the past, but I’m glad that the franchise is coming back to the present day. That means more awesome action, more awesome weapons and more chances that recent events will influence action within the game.
While no release date has been announced, most folks believe that we could see the game sometime in the summer or fall of 2012. Whether or not that proves to be true or not we will keep you informed on every bit of Grand Theft Auto V news that drops. Stay tuned.
