Rockstar won't be in a position to show more GTA 5 footage 'for a while yet'

"We have often had long gaps between asset releases and will continue to do so"

Rockstar may have brightened up this afternoon with two new Grand Theft Auto 5 screens, but don't expect to be seeing a new trailer any time soon.


As part of a newly published Q&A on its official site, the studio explained the lack of news about the game and the asset blackout that has followed GTA 5's reveal trailer last November.

"We are very busy working on the game! Everything is going well, but the game is a huge project. We should have more information and some new assets for you soon.

"As we have said before, we have often had long gaps between asset releases on previous games and will continue to do so in the future. We are sorry if you find this frustrating, but please understand, we don't do this because we 'don't care about our fans' 'don't respect our fans' 'hate GTA fans etc' - precisely the opposite! We do it because we want to make sure we only release 100% correct information, and because we want to keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it.

"The only things we care about are that you enjoy the experience of actually playing the game and that we release accurate information. We just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and will not be for a while yet.

"We will try and get some more screens for you soon and then another trailer when we are ready."
