Grand Theft Auto IV set in New York?

Latest rumour suggests NYC will be the setting Rockstar's next-gen GTA

A post in a forum (that has since been removed) that claimed to have insider knowledge on Grand Theft Auto IV has tipped New York as the city of choice.

With both the Xbox 360 and PS3 releases of Grand Theft Auto IV penned in for October this year, the PR machine is already revving its engine. We reported last month that the first ever trailer of the game will be released to the world wide web at the end of this month on March 29.

Will it be set in New York? The rumour apparently came from someone involved in the music soundtrack of the game, that seemed to be going for a NYC feel.

All eyes on March 29 people. You'll find the trailer here on CVG as soon as it goes live.
