2 New GTA V Screenshots, Still No Release Date
Look, Rockstar, everyone knows GTA V is coming out sometime in the next 7 months. Why else would Take Two list among their projected fiscal year earnings approximately $450m from an unspecified Rockstar game that isn’t listed? Why else have they carved out a huge window in the 2012 holiday season?
Unless… maybe they’re trolling? Perhaps! Maybe there’s actually never going to be a game called Grand Theft Auto V, and this is all nothing but a subtle viral marketing campaign for a GTA-related product called Libertymore? It would be both brilliant and infuriating.
Anyway, for some reason Rockstar has quietly released two new screenshots from what they’re claiming is Grand Theft Auto V. And they do indeed look great. The one at the top shows what is clearly downtown Los Santos, the game’s setting, assuming it’s actually coming out. And below, a little less clear but I’m guessing it’s near the ocean and will be a parody of Marina Del Rey, though some sites I’ve read have suggested it might be a parody of the Silver Lake reservoir. Whatevs, it looks great.
So, yeah. Why not just tell us when the game is coming out already?
