Grand Theft Auto 5 Announced

October 25, 2011, By Christian Davis

I don’t know about you, but I love surprise announcements. Rockstar apparently knows that and they have officially announced that their critically acclaimed and fan favorite series, Grand Theft Auto, has another game in development, simply titled Grand Theft Auto V (5 for those who don’t know their Roman Numerals). There’s essentially no information given on the release of the title with this one exception: We’ll have a trailer November 2nd.  Yes, it’s a surprise, but that’s not to say that we haven’t  had our suspicions of Grand Theft Auto V though.

In March, there was some pretty beefy indications of the title being in development. A plethora of tweets, coding, and even a suspected list of characters all were included in this rumor. A month later, in  April, a German Gamestop had Grand Theft Auto V listed on their site with a January 15th release date.

Like most rumors, they should be taken lightly though these were too close in a time frame for them not to be easily overlooked. Though E3 came and went without any word of the next Grand Theft Auto title, it was still on our minds.

So why was this such a surprise? Rockstar seemed to have everyone invested in Max Payne again and the development of another game just seemed out of the question. Thankfully we were wrong.
