I normally don’t like reporting on screenshots as I think they’re not relevant enough to be considered news on their own, but when the game is as mysterious and as big as Grand Theft Auto V, then you really don’t have a choice, no?
Released by Rockstar themselves at a Q&A session with fans, the screenies don’t really show much, but we’ll take what we can get for now.
The first screen (which you can see above), shows a person sitting on the docks and doing…nothing. Yep, he’s just sitting there and we get to see nothing significant. No shooting, blood, explosions or anything that’s made Grand Theft Auto the franchise it is today.
The next shot, which is shown below, shows a chopper hovering above the city. This could very well be a hint that flying vehicles will be in the game — though, we can’t be sure on that yet.
Aside from that, Rockstar has answered questions that ask, “what’s going on with GTAV?” and “why don’t they release more news?”
The publisher had this to say as a response.
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.
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.
Hopefully, the screenshots are a precursor to more GTAV goodness, no? Gamescom is but a month away, so let’s hope the game shows up there.
