It’s been over three years since Grand Theft Auto IV hit consoles, and with the upcoming release of L.A. Noire it makes sense that Rockstar is working on something new. The new GTAis rumored to be set in Hollywood and to release before 2012.
Also, 2012 is when series creators Sam Houser, Dan Houser and Leslie Benzies’ contracts expire with Take-Two, according to analyst Michael Pachter. It would make sense that publisher Take-Two would want to release another GTA before these three potentially leave the company for good.
In addition to contracts expiring, casting calls for voice actors for GTA style characters that fit the new Hollywood direction have leaked on the Internet. And most interestingly of all, GTA Vmay be a launch title for Nintendo’s new system.
