It’s been awhile since Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive have returned to the world of Grand Theft Auto, but the long delay may prove to be worth it in the end. Rockstar Games has announced Grand Theft Auto V will be coming out next year. Apparently, the game will return to the fan favorite location of San Andreas, the Rockstar version of Los Angeles. San Andreas was the setting for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and promises to bring out more open world action.
“Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we’ve learned about open world game design,” said Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser. “We can’t wait to share it with fans.”
Given Rockstar’s tradition, expect the game in May. Rockstar’s most recent games, from Max Payne 3 to LA Noire and Red Dead Redemption, have all come out in May, so unless they want to break with their recent tradition, the game may be a good summer diversion for those days when it’s too hot to go outside.
