    According to Loose Talk in the latest Game Informer, RockStar North is already working on the next instalment in the Grand Theft Auto franchise, which should be ready for release this holiday season.

    "We're not talking about new DLC or a collection of previously available DLC, we're talking about a full retail game. We expect this title to follow the suit of previous GTAs and use a subtitle such as GTA: San Andreas, etc. Tokyo might be a possible setting for the game, but details are non-existent at this time." - Game Informer Issue 190

    Won't get my hopes up until it's official and not a rumor.

    But dear God, if it was based in Tokyo, how cool would that be?

    Thanks for the "news"!

    EDIT: Hopefully this "new" GTA makes it way over to the Wii.

    Yeah, this kinda goes without saying for any major video game franchise.

    The next game has usually started production just before the latest one came out

    "as well"? Please God no! [​IMG]
    An exclusive one made from ground up to the Wii? Now that I would love to see [​IMG]

    Reggie said some time ago that he would love to see that and Take Two talked about how they wanted to make more stuff to the Wii. Something might be going on there..


    BUT,I don't t think this is about a Wii game.. now that they have the engine ready, if they started working on a new one after GTAIV was done, it should be ready for this Xmas. I hope it is passed on a different time like Vice City and San Andreas were.. also hope there's a new city, Tokyo, Hong Kong or London would be cool.. or Rio de Janeiro but I doubt that would happen :/

    They registered GTA: Tokyo a long time ago, as well as many others that never surfaced.

    Hopefully whatever the next one is like, it'll be more fun this time.

    Doesn't matter if its next gen or wii I would pick it up. I really liked the last GTA and im anticipating the DS one as well.
