Rockstar has been pretty quiet about Grand Theft Auto V
for quite a while now. In fact, we haven't heard anything about the fifth entry in their iconic franchise since the announcement trailer
back in November
That has changed today with Rockstar's regular "Asked and Answered" column
. In this most-recent post, Rockstar has treated gamers to two new screens as well as the following statement commenting on the scarcity of news, screens, and trailers:As we have said before, we have often had long gaps between asset releases on previous games and will continue to do so in the future. We are sorry if you find this frustrating, but please understand, we don't do this because we ‘don't care about our fans' 'don't respect our fans' 'hate GTA fans etc' – precisely the opposite! We do it because we want to make sure we only release 100% correct information, and because we want to keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it. The only things we care about are that you enjoy the experience of actually playing the game and that we release accurate information. We just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and will not be for a while yet. We did, however, manage to sneak a quick screenshot out for you… it's not much, but we thought it was pretty fun.
Who doesn't love perfectionism, right?
Here are the aforementioned screens... don't get too excited.Grand Theft Auto V
will be released when it's finished. Which is to say it doesn't have a release date.
