Rumor has it that the next Grand Theft Auto game is going to be released by the end of this year according to Lose talk in the leated Game Informer. RockStar North is already working on the next instalment in the Grand Theft Auto franchise, which should be ready for release this holiday season in November of 2009.
“We’re not talking about new DLC or a collection of previously available DLC, we’re talking about a full retail game. We expect this title to follow the suit of previous GTAs and use a subtitle such as GTA: San Andreas, etc. Tokyo might be a possible setting for the game, but details are non-existent at this time.” – Game Informer Issue 190
Sources say that Vice City shipped almost exactly a year after Grand Theft Auto III.
