Rockstar has for the first time spoken about the recently announced Grand Theft Auto V.
The first ever trailer for the game was released late yesterday afternoon.
As we know, the game returns to many of the locations found in PS2 hit GTA: San Andreas. Rockstar describes it as “the largest and most ambitious game” it has ever created, offering a “bold new direction” in open-world freedom and storytelling.
Online multiplayer has also been confirmed.
Little else about the game is revealed in the new press release, with Rockstar simply saying that “Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California”.
There’s no word yet on platforms or release dates, though Xbox 360, PS3 and PC are the likeliest bet with a possible release date of Q3 or Q4 2012.
"Grand Theft Auto V is another radical reinvention of the Grand Theft Auto universe," Rockstar founder Sam Houser stated. "We are incredibly excited to share our new vision with our fans."
