I too think its going to be London BTW. They have already done all the cities from the original version (series) all that is left is London. Maybe they think americans driving in reverse cant take it in a video game :p

Its not going to be in london, the 5 in the GTA logo looks like a US dollar note.

Might be a bluff.

BTW, this news is one of the first on Neowin: Google shows the first sign of Grand Theft Auto 5 confirmed only 20 minutes ago.

Why would they bluff.

GTA London is just wishful thinking, how many GTA games have there been and how many of them have been set in London, there has never been a main game set in London only mission packs.

Setting it in the UK doesnt lend well to the kind of game GTA is. There is no gun culture here.

As I said it makes sense for them to do London but from that logo unless they are bluffing it's not going to be London :(

It doesnt make sense to do London, there is no gun culture so there would be no valid explanation to have the kind of weapons available for a game set in London.

If the folks at Rockstar Toronto are doing the PC version, they better do it right this time. The PC version of GTA IV was underwhelming in terms of performance and image quality.

I don't know if you live in London but while I do agree that there is not much of a gun culture here that certainly does not mean there are no guns. I speak from first hand experience, go down the wrong parts of London and you will certainly encounter weapons. Overall what you are suggesting would not be much of an obstacle at all seeing as the game is centered around the life of a criminal.

Well this has come out of nowhere, can't wait to see what the trailer has to say about the actual and possible gameplay of GTA5.

Why would they bluff.

GTA London is just wishful thinking, how many GTA games have there been and how many of them have been set in London, there has never been a main game set in London only mission packs.

Actually, there has been one game that has been set in London, The Getaway, and The Getaway:Black Monday (For the PS2).

Additionally, GTA isn't based on true stories, yes things like that may happen in the US (Never been but have watch documentaries about the sort), but London, do have certian crimes that include gun crimes, drug wars and other such, it will be good to see another game set in London since there isn't many, its all based around the US.

Although I doubt this game will be set in London, but the logo looks no more like the dollar bill than it does a UK £5 note.

Matches a US $5 bill... look at the text for the 'FIVE' - it's an identical font.

Think this will be for the next Xbox?

Am I the only one who loves it when GTA does a spin off? Such as; London, San Andreas, Vice City etc.

I just find 2, 3 and 4 got boring quick.
