Rockstar Games, the publisher of the successful Grand Theft Auto series, announced Monday that the next game in the series will be released in October 2004 for the PlayStation 2 platform. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be the fifth game in the GTA series, which has sold over 30 million units and incurred the wrath of parents' groups, Haitian-Americans and a former Presidential candidate.
Rockstar Games president Sam Houser stated Monday, "In the past couple of years, we have put an enormous amount of pressure on ourselves to ensure we do everything possible to exceed people's expectations with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Even though we still have eight months to go, we are starting to become very proud of what we have achieved and we can't wait to get the game into players' hands."
