The biggest game of the year won’t be at E3 and is not even coming to the next generation of consoles.
GTA V in September is set to be one of ‘the biggest and most important launches of the current console generation,’ says Take-Two.
The game arrives just a few weeks before PS4 and Xbox One are expected to launch. But Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick insists this won’t have a negative impact on the new sandbox shooter.
"Grand Theft Auto V is the most highly anticipated release of our biggest franchise," he said.
"It features the largest, most dynamic and most diverse open world Rockstar Games has yet created. The installed base of current generation consoles is estimated to be in excess of 120 million, and most of those consumers have been waiting for Grand Theft Auto V for years. Therefore, we expect there to be enormous consumer demand for Grand Theft Auto V regardless of when the next-generation consoles are released."
