Here's some exciting Grand Theft Auto new for all you gamers out there: retailers have apparently started listing a new GTA game ahead of E3, which is held in California this week, suggesting that Rockstar might be revealing the new game to us.
The industry is full of rumours that the new game will be set in real-world Los Angeles. This was first sparked by a leaked set of acting job adverts, and now the level of chit-chat surrounding the title has reached fever pitch. Rockstar themselves have kept extremely quiet on the issue, however many are convinced that the sequel will play a part in the developers show at the expo.
'We fully expect the next instalment of Grand Theft Auto to be released by Q4:12 at the latest, as the company's contracts with the three employees most instrumental in the game's development (Les Benzies, Sam and Dan Houser) expire in January 2012,' said industry analyst Michael Pachter last year. But is he right? Let's hope so.
