Games: Two New GTA V Pics


It’s been a long time since I’ve talked about games on The Shootening. A mixture of apathy and a lack of interesting titles has put paid to that. Still, if you flash up anything titled “Grand Theft Auto“, expect me to sit up boltright and take notice. It was WAY back in November when the trailer to Grand Theft Auto V was shown and I did my little breakdown and not a lot has been revealed since. Until now…


Look, I didn’t say it was going to be exciting. We have two new pics. First up is this helicopter flying over the city of Los Santos. I suppose it shows a little of the size and scale of the place. That sunset looks pretty frickin’ spectacular too…


… and here’s another of people sat looking at a pool or lake with city high rises in the background. The game sure looks pretty, but a little sparse at the mo’. I’m sure that’ll be sorted in the future. Speaking of which, when Rockstar was asked what’s going on with the game in a recent Q&A session, they had this to say – “We are very busy working on the game! Everything is going well, but the game is a huge project. We should have more information and some new assets for you soon.”

When asked if they have more news soon, Rockstar replied – ”

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. The only things we care about are that you enjoy the experience of actually playing the game and that we release accurate information. We just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and will not be for a while yet. We did, however, manage to sneak a quick screenshot out for you… it’s not much, but we thought it was pretty fun.

….We will try and get some more screens for you soon and then another trailer when we are ready.”

Looks like Grand Theft Auto V is coming along nicely but won’t be ready for a while yet. Kinda puts a kibosh on any release this year. Ah well.

  1. I don’t think there was ever any chance of it being released this year. Rockstar tend to release one game a year, around May, so fingers crossed for May 2013! Though that does seem unresonably far away. 😦
