awesome news, loved GTA IV. i'm pretty sure this will be for the next consoles and PC, and i doubt it'll be in London...the entire franchise is based on mocking/respecting contemporary US culture.

I don't think it'll be for next gen consoles.
I can see this being out in the summer 2012 for 360 and PS3.
No chance would they be allowed to announce a game for the next gen consoles before MS/Sony have announced them.

Should be interesting.

Not sure how this is a surprise to anyone though. The major "10th Anniversary" sale and PR campaign that just started last week was a major hint to the imminent announcement of 5.

Everyone is thinking of where it is set but I am more interested in what time it is set like present, past or future.

I'd love to see a London based game but i don't think it will be.
The '5' in the holding page logo is very much like staring at a cloud, you tend to see what you want. It bares both a resemblance to dollars and pounds. I'm looking at a fiver (£) right now and the font is the same and it has the same green detailing and curly lines... who knows eh?

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.


Hmmm take it from a lifelong Londoner who's worked with crime prevention, there's a lot of gun culture but it's very much the underground criminals (but unfortunately becoming more popular) who the GTA games are based around anyway.
Also look at films like Lock Stock etc... believe me, they're not as exaggerated as you'd hope.

If they're announcing it now it will be for current generation consoles.

It's not London.

It's DC.

OMG, I cannot wait for this. I didn’t particularly like GTA IV, as it lacked way too many things from San Andreas, and it didn’t have that cool vacations ambience like in Vice City either, that I am nostalgic about every time I think about it :D

But I do have hope for this one, because they could start with something already, which would be GTA IV. I’ve got to admit that for a game where they have started everything from scratch, GTA IV rocked.

Hrm. V + dollar bill styling = hint at Vegas (or Las Venturas as it was called in GTA:SA) perhaps?

It'll almost certainly be America, since the satire induced at the USA in IV wouldn't be passed upon once again surely.

While I hope it is a new city, I'm thinking the V is just short for Vice City. GTA V - ice city :p But that is just because Vice was the best.
