Studio co-founder Dan Houser told The Guardian that despite the introduction of an in-game score, the series' traditional radio stations will remain.
"We thought [we] could do something interesting if we scored missions in GTA," explained Houser. "Obviously we didn't want to lose radio stations, so we thought we'd do both.
"Exactly how we're going to balance between the two we're not entirely sure yet - we're still trying to figure that out. But we have some very cool people doing the score, different people, who will work in the same stem-based system that we used in the other games".
Last week we gathered all the first GTA V details from Game Informer magazine in the US, including a breakdown on each of the game's three main characters, dynamic missions, and more.
This morning new GTA 5 screenshots appeared online.
