What if GTA V did not see a release date until well into 2013? If it had been a mistake to show the first trailer so early thanks to financial reasons and not development time, then it could mean a lack of news for the rest of this year and at least another year before we see the game launch.
We have heard a few rumors pointing towards Take 2 being unhappy about the early release of the first GTA V trailer, and this would explain why it has been so long since we’ve had any solid details and not seen another trailer many months later. We had an email tipping us that Rockstar were told off by Take 2 for releasing the trailer so early, and that the game should release in another financial year. While this is just a rumor from an unnamed source it would explain the lack of news surrounding GTA V, although we still find this hard to believe, especially considering other rumors pointing to early testing, so this would mean marketing should start soon and move away from pushing Max Payne 3 so hard.
These rumors still highlight one issue and that is the gap between the first GTA V trailer and the next one, whenever that will be, which has been far too long in our opinion. If the game is to release this year or early next we need to see another trailer soon, and also some gameplay would be nice.
Did the Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer release too early? When we do see more video footage and gameplay it should deliver a lot more insight, and also we hope this brings our most requested feature, which is a co-op campaign in GTA V. Is this something you want, and what other features would you like to see in the next Grand Theft Auto game?
