The game will arrive on home consoles during spring 2013
Strauss Zelnick, the chief executive officer of Take Two, says that the development team at Rockstar is already thinking about the potential downloadable content for their upcoming Grand Theft Auto V and that it will deliver interesting story and gameplay to players.The executive has told investors during a conference call quoted by Videogamer that, “I think you can safely assume that Rockstar, as the label that led the charge in downloadable content with Grand Theft Auto 4, I think you’d have every reason to believe, purely because of the ground-breaking nature of the title itself and the multiplayer in the title, that there’s going to be a lot of interesting stuff.”
Zelnick says that all official announcements about DLC for Grand Theft Auto V will be made by Rockstar and that Take Two has no plans to intervene in the launch schedule of the developer.
He adds, “With regard to the date for Grand Theft Auto 5, spring 2013, we make those announcements based on what we think is best to market the title, and we think that’s the right way to describe it, and we’re thrilled with the way that is shaping up.”
GTA V is at the moment available for pre-order for all those who want to make sure that they get it as soon as it is launched.
The game will focus on Los Santos, which is a virtual and ironic recreation of Los Angeles and Rockstar also plans to model the surrounding area after the communities of Southern California.
Grand Theft Auto V is at the moment announced just for the Xbox 360 home console from Microsoft and the PlayStation 3 from Sony.
It’s not clear whether there are no plans to also deliver the game on the PC or whether an announcement will be made at a later date.
