Grand Theft Auto V release announcement
On Tuesday morning, Rockstar Games officially announced that "Grand Theft Auto V" will launch worldwide during the spring of 2013 for Sonys PlayStation 3 and Microsofts Xbox 360 - no mention of a PC or Nintendo Wii U release at this time.
Developed by Rockstar North, the same company which created the series in 1997, "Grand Theft Auto V" is the largest and most ambitious "Grand Theft Auto" entry in the series to date.
Set in Los Santos and its surrounding locales, "Grand Theft Auto V" intends to deliver a world of unprecedented scale and detailed busting with life, as players can explore mountaintops or the depth of the ocean.
"Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything weve learned about open world game design," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "We cant wait to share it with fans."
In addition to the release date announcement, Rockstar has confirmed that starting on November 5, "Grand Theft Auto V" will be available for pre-order in stores everywhere.
