Rockstar Games have released new screenshots of the upcoming Grand Theft Auto game.
Two screens from GTA5 were unveiled during an online Q&A session – and Rockstar say there will be more information on the way very soon. According to Digital Spy, the developer wrote: “We are very busy working on the game! Everything is going well, but the game is a huge project. We should have more information and some new assets for you soon.”
Dismissing speculation surrounding the next edition of the popular game franchise, the studio revealed that it would be some time before fans get a good look at GTA5.
Explaining why there are “long gaps between asset releases”, the studio said: “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.”
And the studio warned fans to ignore bogus ‘beta’ testing scams, writing: “One thing we’ll say definitively though is – there is absolutely no ‘beta’ test for the game. If you see ads or solicitations to join a beta programme, beware as this could be a dodgy online phishing scam.
“Your best bet is to only trust information as official if you’re seeing it announced here at the Rockstar Newswire.”
Grand Theft Auto 5, which was announced by the studio last year, is expected to take place in and around the city of Los Santos, and is tipped for an October release.
