Today we can confirm that the game will definitely not be on display. Talking to a Take 2 source, under terms of anonymity, we asked if the game would be seen. "No, we won't be showing new GTA," we were told. "Definitely not?" we asked. "Definitely not. We are practically doing nothing this year. Everything will be shown after the show", our source continued. "Will the game be on show in some kind of behind-closed doors capacity?" "No. It’s not going to be there," said the Take 2 staffer.

GTA: San Andreas Info
Want to know what music you’ll be listening to and the possibility of online play you say…
New information on GTA: San Andreas today came to light, giving some insights on what to expect from the third title in the GTA3 trilogy.
Realising that the series needs further innovation, RockStar north are currently implementing a wide range of gameplay additions, including the ability to challenge fellow highway drivers to a race; however sadly RockStar North are refusing to divulge anymore information prior to E3.
Following on from the musical success in GTA: Vice City, RockStar have once again been signing up major artists, reportedly including the likes of 50 cent, Justin Timberlake and Happy Mondays to mention but a few – hinting that San Andreas will have a more modern theme then the 80’s induced Vice City.
In addition it’s claimed that San Andreas will be much larger then either Liberty City or Vice City before it, whilst we’ve heard suggestions that an online multiplayer mode will surface and provide the major selling point for the title.
We’ll hopefully have more information soon.
Take-Two is reiterating its guidance for the third quarter ending July 31, 2004. However, it is moving the launch date of The Warriors™ for PlayStation®2 from the third quarter of fiscal 2004 to the first quarter of fiscal 2005. Rockstar Games believes that this shift will benefit the product and will allow additional resources to be devoted to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, scheduled to be in stores in North America on October 19th and in Europe on October 22nd. Rockstar plans to begin previewing Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to key retailers and industry trade publications in June. "
