Rockstar Games have today launched the Official GTA V Website (or at least the splash page). Along with the website launch was a press release...

Below is a quote from Rockstar Games:
We are very proud to officially announce that Grand Theft Auto V is in full development.

Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.

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.
Rockstar Founder Sam Houser also added in a Take-Two Press Release:
"Grand Theft Auto V is another radical reinvention of the Grand Theft Auto universe,"
"We are incredibly excited to share our new vision with our fans."
So there you have it. Can we take this as confirmation we won't be seeing the rest of San Andreas? Or are they holding some back some info for the future? And by the "largest" game they have created, is the map bigger than Red Dead Redemption?


  • Game is set in Present Day
  • Game is set in Los Santos
  • Will include hills, countryside and beaches
  • Story focuses on the pursuit of money
  • Game will feature Online Multiplayer
In addition to all that, you can get the Grand Theft Auto V logo as a wallpaper in various sizes from Rockstar's download section here or get the largest version right here. Playing Poker might be a good way of earning some extra cash!

    There's no way it is coming out this year now. Rockstar would've released a second trailer by now. And Jose, your idea would bore everyone to death, sorry.

    i would love for grand theft auto v to have some form of real life to it like Sims where you gotta bathe or you'll be stink and unhealthy and you have to eat and drink to survive and you have to sleep or you'll be tired lol and i would most definitely love it to point where you have to sleep or you'll lose energy and be tired maybe even die after 4 days and it would be cool to have animals and design your houses like saints row and you can park your cars anywhere and they will be there until you decide to move them i.e you can park on your front lawn or in front of your house or in the backyard around the corner. iwould also think it would be good to have pets like dogs and you could customize all your cars and change your clothes and customize your guy buy some gold teeth putta f-650 in the game withn 28's and real life time

    I just hope that this game will be good enough, big enough and impressive enough to outsell the next Call Of Duty. Im sick of seeing and hearing about CoD and im sick of it winning awards instead of better deserving games. GTA is the one and only game that can finish CoD and knock it down a few blocks... Its war... Please... Kill motherfucking CoD!!! Peace out.
