Default Rumor: New Gta Targetting This Holiday Season

Many gamers are probably still making their way through the streets of Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV, but that doesn't mean that Rockstar doesn't have plans for the next iteration of the infamous series. In fact, according to the latest issue of Game Informer (via PSU), the next game may be coming sooner than you think, with a rumored holiday 2009 release window.

"We're not talking about new DLC or a collection of previously available DLC, we're talking about a full retail game," the report claims. "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."

While this may seem quick, keep in mind that the release of Grand Theft Auto III in 2001 was followed by GTA: Vice City just a year later. Then again, those games didn't feature any sort of downloadable content. The downloadable episode for GTAIV, The Lost and Damned, should be released in the second quarter of 2009, and is expected to provide a significant amount of new gameplay, which could have an impact on the release of the next full retail game. Keep your eyes on OT for any official announcement when, and if, it comes up
Found this rumor interesting. If it comes to pass, I'd have to wonder "What about the dlc??" I say that not in a smackdown capacity - but as a "WTF??"

In any case, it's just a rumor and I hadn't seen it posted anywhere here. Take it with a grain of salt. People seem to be guessing that it will be based upon Tokyo or London (both of which would suck in my opinion -- i didnt enjoy the last londonesque gta style game)
