GTA 5 multiplayer confirmed. Present day setting and “radical reinvention”
It was never really in doubt but it is nice to have the official word. The confirmation came in a GTA 5 announcement from Take-Two. In the statement they called Grand Theft Auto 5, “A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California.”
They also mentioned that the game will “head to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.” Founder of Rockstar Games Sam Houser also said “Grand Theft Auto V is another radical reinvention of the Grand Theft Auto universe”. I guess we’ll have to wait to find out what that means.
