Rockstar released some new Grand Theft Auto V screens today showcasing a few muscle cars, scuba diving and a cool action shot featuring, well, grand theft auto. You can check out the shots at the bottom of the article.
Aside from the new screenshots also comes the not so surprising news that Rockstar will not be showcasing Grand Theft Auto V at E3 this year. The game releases in September and we still have yet to see any gameplay clips, but that probably doesn’t really worry anyone.
Rockstar let the press know that instead of showcasing the game at E3, they will release more information about the game during the summer leading up to the game’s full release.
“This year, our labels will not have a booth on the show floor. Both Rockstar Games and 2K have instead decided to focus their marketing and PR efforts on a series of events throughout the spring and summer. Our team, however, will be present at the show, and we look forward to seeing many of you there,” said Take-Two president Karl Slatoff
“Our philosophy on the show is that we like the show, we participate in a meaningful way in the show,” he continued. “It’s a great place for the industry to get together, and we’re highly supportive of it. This year it just didn’t make sense for us at the same level.”
Rockstar and 2K are also anticipating the game to sell 20 million copies within the first 6 months of release. Are they setting their expectation a bit too high with recent sales trends? Only time will tell.
