GTA V Information Will Come in a 'Few Months'

The following is an excerpt from Rockstar Games' latest Q&A on the Newswire:

"When will we know more about #GTAV" - Fash08 (via Twitter)
"When's the release date for GTA5" - Akiieran (via Twitter)
"Can we expect a 2nd trailer this year for GTAV?" - mats hoi
"Any more news about GTAV on the way, I can't wait!!!!" - mattoneill1991 (via Twitter)

First of all, we'd like to again thank you and everyone out there for the amazing response to the debut Grand Theft Auto V trailer. We know that there are a ton of questions you all have about the game, including release date and lots else.
Right now, we are very hard at work on the game and are excited as well to show and tell you more as development progresses - expect that we'll be talking much more about GTAV starting at some point in a few months' time.
Please hang tight until then and thank you all for your patience and support!

"Rockstar, I really can't wait for new information about the new GTA. And is it only in Los Santos or too in SF and LV?" - MatsvanStam

As we revealed in our announcement about the game being officially in full development, Grand Theft Auto V is set in the city of Los Santos and its surrounding hills, countryside and beaches – and it will be the largest and most ambitious open world game we've ever created…

Some of you will probably be disappointed to hear that Rockstar are going to be quiet on the GTA V front for another few months. But it makes perfect sense. Rockstar will be using the time between now and the end of May to promote Max Payne 3. As soon as that's released Rockstar can dive straight back into GTA mode and feed our ferocious appetites.
One more thing, with this information we can finally lay the tired old 2405 theory to bed. Hooray!

As for the second question, Rockstar once again confirm that GTA V is set just in Los Santos, but will include "surrounding hills, countryside and beaches." A fairly popular theory at the moment is that Rockstar could release additional cities as DLC, although the feasibility of this is somewhat questionable, not least because of their size. There were no questions or comments on that aspect of it, so theories regarding this are still up in the air for now.

If you've got any thoughts on the game feel free to discuss them with others in our forums.
