Rockstar confirms Grand Theft Auto V

Location and plot under development

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Rockstar Games’ Vice President has apparently confirmed that a fifth edition of Grand Theft Auto is on the cards.

In an interview with The Times, Dan Houser said: “We'll think of a city first, then the characters,” in response to questions about plans for a successor to GTA IV.

The news is hardly unexpected as it’s well known that Rockstar is keen to cash in on the videogame series’ huge success – GTA: The Movie hasn’t been ruled out by the publisher, for example.

However, Houser wasn’t willing to confirm when GTA V will be unveiled - or launched.

But videogames analyst Michael Pachter – who claimed back in July that Rockstar had confirmed development of GTA V to him - reckons the new edition will appear in late 2010 or early 2011.

As for GTA V’s plot, no one outside of Rockstar yet knows. But Houser also said that the game’s script will run to roughly 1000 pages. ®
