GTA 5 map set to be huge according to Rockstar

By Gary Johnson - Jan 3, 2012

Even though we could be months away from the release on the next installment of the Grand Theft Auto franchise, many gamers are already getting excited about the game. Trouble is since the trailer for the game was released last year we have not had much information to go on about the title. But today we can tell that the GTA 5 map is set to be huge in size according to Rockstar themselves.

While many think the game could be the biggest title available this year all we have had to go on so far was the original press release from Rockstar back in November. At the time it was promised that GTA 5 will be the most ambitious title from the franchise so far.

Now Gamer are reporting that GTA 5’s map size looks set to be much bigger than GTA 4’s Liberty City. This is because of a recent comment from RockStar’s Dan Houser while he was being interviewed about another upcoming Rockstar release, Max Payne 3.

He was asked if GTA 5 was to be set in San Andreas and he first replied that had to be really careful what he was about to say. He stuck to what has been already revealed in the original press release by saying it was set in Los Santos, but he also said it’s “a very big map”.

This is the first time that Rockstar Games has given any reference to the size of the map in the upcoming game. There still is a lot of speculation that the game could still see a release as early as May, but the smart money is on an October release.
