Rockstar Confirms GTA V Set in Los Santos

Yesterday the much-anticipated release of the first Grand Theft Auto V trailer had the gaming world abuzz. Hot on the heels of that, Rockstar has released their official announcement of the game. Yeah, it seems a bit backward, but what can you do?

The announcement confirms what we thought yesterday, that the game is set in Los Santos, the GTA world’s version of Los Angeles. Here’s what Rockstar had to say.

Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.

A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California.

Does this sound like it will be too tame? It sounds OK to me so far. No doubt we’ll hear a lot more about GTA V in the coming months. As always, we’ll keep an ear to the ground and get all the info to you.
