'Official' Grand Theft Auto V trailer launching Thursday

New GTA V 'official trailer' being released this Thursday, August 29; video details and exact timing currently unknown.

With less than three weeks to go until Grand Theft Auto V's September 17 worldwide launch, Rockstar is still serving up new content for its open-world game. Today, the developer announced plans to release the game's "official trailer" this week.

No specific details of the content in the video were outlined, but the trailer will reportedly hit both the Rockstar Newswire and GTA V site on Thursday, August 29, with exact times yet to be confirmed.

The game has received added attention over the past week, with hackers using pre-loaded files from the PS3 version of the game to reveal story details. Sony apologised profusely for the mistake.

A reportedly mistaken tweet landed Sony in hot water just days later, when Sony's official UK Twitter account suggested that the game--which is currently only announced for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3--would also be coming to next-generation systems. The now-deleted post said, "GTA V is going to be amazing, especially on the PS4!"

Check out GameSpot's preview of the multiplayer component and interview with Rockstar North head Leslie Benzies for more.

I'd prefer to see it on TV like they did in the old days with cool music in the background, Vice City and San Andreas had brilliant trailers.

Wake me up when they officially announce the PC version.  Or at least next-gen console versions.  I refuse to play this game on 7/8 year old hardware.

In other news the general media will be in an uproar over the release of a new GTA game that features male nudity and drug use this after the tragedy of a child who unfortunately is being blamed for playing GTA 4

I just wonder how the world would react if trevor's lifestyle was swapped with the black dude's. Im sure the media and everyone else would be in a uproar. Not racist just pointing out political correctness in this country.

official trailer=LAUNCH TRAILER. why are folks losing common sense over this game? "omg they might be releasing it on ps4 and x1!!". when has rockstar ever done that? cmon now. if that was the case they would have ported over san andreas to the ps3/360 too with better graphics cause that also was near the end of that generations life cycle

@Johny_47 I hope they would let us customize our clothes and see some good cheats just like San Andreas with mods.

@PJthePlayer2 Good for you, idiot. you'll miss out like the rest of you idiotic pc elitist. You guys get NO copy, good luck waiting just like RDR.

@Impetus94 I was obsessed with GTA, I bought a PS3 just for GTA4, and funny thing that was when I kinda lost interest :), I never even tried the multiplayer once.  It might have been just other things in life, or maybe the fact that I am not really a console gamer and would have preferred it on PC.

Still, I'm excited for this one and I hope I can really get as into as I used to be with the older ones.

@CiTizenMaSSaKre @PJthePlayer2 Haha.  Calm down.  GTAV will be on PC and it will be far superior to console versions.  Don't hate on PC gamers because you can't afford a decent gaming rig.  You can keep your jaggy no anti-aliasing RDR.  :)

@LonelyHippie27 @stamina_brown By your logic, the fact that my 60GB Playstation 3 can play PS1 and PS2 games, all of them are 'on' the Playstation 3.  The ability for a console to run a piece of software doesn't make it a native title.

Calm your tits, graphics aren't everything. Go ahead and wait till next gen/pc release. You won't be missed. Talking about  playing a game because it will have no anti aliasing makes you really seem like a pc etilist nerd. If it does come out for pc, I will end up buying it on steam and playing it with 'my mom bought compaq computer' lol nice insult though.

You know for a "PC Elitist" it's ironic that I own seven consoles currently including all three of the past gen (360/PS3/Wii).  I hate to be the one to tell you this but that entry level Compaq your mom bought at Best Buy probably around the time the 360 came out does not qualify as a modern gaming PC.  But hey... If you can tolerate paying current gen prices for past gen GTA running at 30 FPS with low res textures and no anti-aliasing... ignorance is bliss I suppose.  I mean let's face it... GTAV with 360/PS3 graphics is nothing more than an over-sized DLC for GTAIV.  Someday when you get a job and don't have to rely on your mother for your gaming hardware budget you will understand where I'm coming from.  I own a 360 and a PS3 and recently played through The Last of Us because that game will never come to PC and was good and original enough to justify playing with past gen graphics... even if the graphics were like switching to bologna after years of having steak.  Personally I would much rather wait for a current gen version.  Good day sir.

@Applepine @PJthePlayer2 @CiTizenMaSSaKre U guys are all idiots lol, he said next-gen console as well which doesn't make him a pc elitist, it just makes him a shmo that won't get to experience the greatness of GTAV :D

@Impetus94 @NbAlIvEr10000 @Sindroid @WICGuardian $ony UK are the ones that leaked the pre-load version ahead of schedule before telling Rockstar anything about it.  Once you put stuff on PSN, its only a matter of time before it becomes public to everyone.

@LonelyHippie27 @WICGuardian once the files get transfered from one place to another, ie. from sony to that persons house, those files are in their possession and can do what ever they want
