Within today's asked and answered series on Rockstar's Newswire, Rockstar has released the first two screenshots of Grand Theft Auto 5. This marks the first time we have seen something from the game since the release of the first trailer back in November of last year. Here's Rockstar response on why they don't release more info and assets.
We are very busy working on the game! Everything is going well, but the game is a huge project. We should have more information and some new assets for you soon. As we have said before, we have often had long gaps between asset releases on previous games and will continue to do so in the future. We are sorry if you find this frustrating, but please understand, we don’t do this because we ‘don’t care about our fans' 'don’t respect our fans’ 'hate GTA fans etc' – precisely the opposite! We do it because we want to make sure we only release 100% correct information, and because we want to keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it. The only things we care about are that you enjoy the experience of actually playing the game and that we release accurate information. We just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and will not be for a while yet. We did, however, manage to sneak a quick screenshot out for you… it’s not much, but we thought it was pretty fun.
With the first sentence that we've bolded, you'd assume they are getting close to start the marketing for GTAV. Sadly, the last bolded sentence contradicts that sentiment doesn't give much hope. Hopefully, it won't be too long until we gome some more information or at least a couple more screenshots!
