Rockstar announces Grand Theft Auto 5

First trailer coming next week.

Rockstar has officially announced Grand Theft Auto 5 via a teaser image posted on

The image merely teases the game's logo and lists a date for the game's first trailer - 2nd November.

No release date or platforms are mentioned.

Previous rumours pegged the game as being set in Hollywood, with a report claiming a 2012 release date was "very likely".

Leaked information from a purported casting call earlier this year suggested the game had already been in development for some time.
