( 4UMF NEWS ) Grand Theft Auto V Coming Soon:
After months of teasing video game players about the next chapter in the Grand Theft Auto series, Rockstar Games is finally revealing details on its arrival.
Publisher Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar announced in a statement they will launch Grand Theft Auto V, the highly-anticipated, open world action game, in spring 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Based on previous history of Rockstar Games’ releases, it’s possible GTA V will debut in May. The month has become a favorite for Rockstar in recent years, with titles such as 2010 Western adventure Red Dead Redemption, 2011 crime drama L.A. Noire and this year’s Max Payne 3 all launching in May.
“Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we’ve learned about open world game design,” said Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser in a statement. “We can’t wait to share it with fans.”
Details are scant, other than Grand Theft Auto V will take place in a fictional version of Los Angeles called Los Santos and its surrounding area. The last time Rockstar visited L.A. was for the 2004 hit Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox.
