Over the weekend, it was discovered that a mural of Grand Theft Auto V‘s box art was being put up in New York City. With it being difficult to tell if this was the doing of a random artist or someone commissioned by Rockstar Games, fans began to reach out via Twitter.
Rockstar responded to one fan, however, and informed them that it is in fact the official box art for Grand Theft Auto V. In addition to the confirmation, Rockstar stated that the box art should be finished within the “next day or so” with digital versions coming shortly after.

It’s a clever way to announce the title, but it’s not the first time they’ve went this route to announce cover art for a video game. For the announcement of Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar did an extremely similar reveal for the cover.
