Excited about the new Grand Theft Auto V screenshots that released earlier today? Well, you should be, but don’t expect to see much else from Rockstar on the game in the near future.
“We are very busy working on the game! Everything is going well, but the game is a huge project.”
In a recent Q&A on the Rockstar website, the company answered a great deal of questions on its upcoming open-world project. While no revolutionary facts were stated, it’s been confirmed that there will be a media blackout of sorts on GTA V until the time is right.
“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.”
Rockstar also stated that there will be plenty of faked information in the near future, and that it’ll be best to just ignore it and only believe what comes directly from the mouths of the developers. They’re not in the business of confirming or denying every little rumor out there, but they did put one discussion to rest right away.
“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 program, 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.”
So, be content with the wonderful content we were given today, but don’t expect to see anything new soon. The team is working on the game, and right now, that’s more important than producing a trailer to satisfy all the fans out there.
