GTA V will not be at Gamescom this year according to an organizer who recently set the record straight. A recent hype video for the convention included footage from the GTA V announcement trailer, which had many Grand Theft Auto fans thinking there would be new news this August out of Cologne.
The spokesperson told CVG that the footage of Grand Theft Auto V was included “in error”. Furthermore, “Rockstar Games is not scheduled and has never been scheduled to exhibit at Gamescom 2012,” according to Tim Endres.
Error or not, this is a pretty big blow to GTA V fans. Little is known about the upcoming open-world title from Rockstar. Since its reveal last November, Rockstar has only spoken about the game a single time. Last week the developer explained that development was going well for Grand Theft Auto V, and released two new screenshots of Los Santos, the fictional recreation of Los Angles in GTA V.
