Rumor / New GTA this year?

If this one doesn’t come true then don’t blame us. According to the Loose Talk section in the latest Game Informer, Rockstar North are already working on a brand spanking new Grand Theft Auto and it should be out by Xmas 2009.

Quoted by PSU, the article states: “We’re not talking about new DLC or a collection of previously available DLC, we’re talking about a full retail game. 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.”

How about that? It’s plausible that using the architecture of GTA IV they could knock out a new one in a year, and as PSU points out Vice City was released just 12 months after GTA III. So it’s possible, probable even, but not yet proven. We’ll keep you posted.
