After months of fan-boy speculation Rockstar Games finally officially announced what every Grand Theft Auto fan was waiting for, the release date…well, the rough release date…for GTA V:
Today, we’re proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto V is expected to launch worldwide spring 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V takes place in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California in the largest and most thriving game-world we have ever created set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and for miles beyond – from the tops of the mountains to the depths of the ocean.
Starting next week November 5, 2012, Grand Theft Auto V will become available for pre-order everywhere and fans can expect a host of new information to become available in November.
Look for downloadable desktop versions of the brand new artwork above coming very soon.
There you have it, sounds like they’ve pulled out all the stops and to claim that it will be the largest game-world they’ve created is quite an exciting prospect when you consider the sheer scope of the original San Andreas. Also, are we in for a special treat with GTA V in the form of scuba gear or submersibles with their ‘…to the depths of the ocean‘, line? I sincerely hope so.
