Rockstar teases "exciting" Grand Theft Auto V reveal

Developer suggests news about game's main story mode will be announced "very soon."

Rockstar Games has news to share about Grand Theft Auto V's main campaign. The developer said today that it will announce information about "exciting Story Mode updates" very soon, suggesting new content may be coming to the open-world action game.

The tease came as part of Rockstar's release date announcement for the Beach Bum expansion for Grand Theft Auto Online, which will be released next Tuesday, November 19.

No new single-player content for GTAV has been announced to date. Predecessor Grand Theft Auto IV welcomed two post-release expansions: The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Any news on this? Usually when Rockstar "teases" something they talk about it the following week...

How gutted would everyone be if they said GTA 5 Expansion packs will ONLY be availble for next gen consoles!! :) forcing everyone to purchase it again with a ps4/xbone. Na they wouldn't though. . . . would they??

Any news? It's odd that Rockstar would announce this so early, have two major console releases go by, and still not say anything about it yet.

For me the GTA 5 single player + online experience was A BLAST!!! The single player took me around 60 hours to complete it to 100%.Online was was a blast as I've played 200+ hours and I currently stand on lvl 91 (there a thousands of ppl that are 50,100 and even 200 lvls above me).What more can you ask for? ===> 200 hours of single player? 100 heists? The heists were AMAZING...a few as they were,thats what made them so special.The online experience was too repetetive? Let me tell you something: If you try all the game has to offer than there is a lot you can actually do.Don't race Criminal Records or Down the Drain all day long - try some other races (air races,water races).Do some parachute jumps.I love parachuting coz most of the other ppl suck at it,and Its the easiest to win at - I have over 70 jumps done so far.The missions are also fun (they are the most repetitive thing so far imo,but still very interesting).Try killing ppl in the lobby with different weapons so that you unlock new paint jobs for your weapons

People like to complain about stuff coz we're basically jerks (even I am),but its really simple: GTA 5 is the BEST GAME IN THE WORLD (in this moment).None of the elements are "the best" by their own,but they are damn good and the multitude of things you can do makes it a terrific experience.

People on PC can cry all day long about low frame rates,or how the game is not even that good (THE GAME IS EXCELLENT),but thats all that they got left.You are missing out and thats a FACT!!!

For the hundreds/thousands of dollars PC gamers have spent on their machines, and chanting "master race" like some kind of racist fanatic on gaming websites and facebook, you guys sure complain a lot about GTA 5. And then you go on a rant about how you won't buy this game and refuse to play it on inferior hardware. For people who are so above the rest, you sure cast a lot of admiring/jealous glances. Wait for your turn kiddos, you'll have it when Rockstar gets around to you guys...sometime late next year.

And still no PC release, lol. This game will be irrelevant by the time it comes out on PC, GTA 6 will already be announced.

Really hoping for some 4th character DLC.  And new heists.  And by the way most of the criticisms on this comments section are idiotic, as is the norm for this site and the internet in general.

so what, the mp is broken and in sp the "Experts" you can hire for your heist can´t learn anything useful in only 3 heists, a pointless mechanic.

nothing to see here, move on.

I love how everyone stopped talking about this game like two weeks after its release. And the multiplayer was supposed to be a revolution too.

Lol not PC version announcement? PC got owned again and again. Poor sod

It needs to be more large heists and a fairly hefty story mode addition otherwise I don't know that I'll be going back to the game.

No PC news means nothing to see here... I won't by this on consoles (current gen or last gen), Rockstar.

This will be released next Tuesday, or the following week... and if it doesn't come out that week, we'll just move it to another week!

Does anyone remember how GS hid the results for franchise of the decade (Elder Scrolls beat GTA, which was obviously not what GS wanted)? I love GTA but come on, that was shady as hell.

This game is SO overrated, I finished it in two weeks, instantly sold it, and yes, a PC version would be nice because 30FPS and shit loading times just doesn't cut it.

Why does every article about this game contain comments begging for a PC version? No offense to PC gamers in general, but if you're constantly asking why game x, y, or z wasn't released for your PC, it obviously can't be the #1 place for gaming. Then again, I still wonder why people still have these arguments in the first place and just play on console AND PC.

@saadomar 60 million people on Steam is a lot of lost sales for Rockstar games. If anyone should be salty, it would be Take-Two.

@Merseyak LOL AT U! it runs like shit on consoles? well seen you've never played it I have yet to experience frame rate drops on the game, also whats the point in having all that power on the PC when all the best games come on consoles only lol, PC is a joke when it comes to gaming and that's why consoles will always be better, the best games is all that matters on consoles u keep your ":PC master race" by the time GTA5 comes out it will be old news and that's basically all the PC is now "old news" lmfao.

@Hellcanwait There's no denying the heists were fun, and I can't wait to see them in MP but yeah I agree with you on the whole levelling up your henchmen (or whatever you want to call them) given that I could never remember who I'd used, they never really and I don't recall them ever making a difference anyway.

@Tiwill44  

You're idiot, or you're just in denial.  GTA V is still leading in software sales for the third month in a row, and due to the fact that Rockstar barely advertises except for on their own website or a tv commercial here or there, I'd say it was because of word of mouth.  Get your facts straight.

@glenn2709 NO!!! If it isn't released, next tuesday or the following week, they will NOT move it to another week. Not in this reality or another. It's simply IMPOSSIBLE!!!

Stupid question.  Not everyone can afford to purchase multiple game machines, that's just how the real world works.

@FallenOneX Most PC gamers also own a PS3 for the occasional console exclusives (Red Dead Redemption, etc.), but GTA 5 is simply horrendous on consoles. I'd give it a shot if it was on PC, but I refuse to play another GTA with super low framerates and sub-par graphics. I'm too used to 75fps now, anything below 45fps starts to feel sluggish.

JRHT

@FallenOneX I guess the frustration for PC games is that GTA was originally a PC franchise and that although in all likelihood, GTAV will make it to PC, the absence of a release date makes it more frustrating.

For example, as a kid, you knew when Christmas was, so when you were eagerly awaiting it, there is a definite deadline. Now imagine if Christmas had come every year beforehand, but they wouldn't confirm when it was going to be *this* year.- you'd be a little frustrated, right? I think that's how PC gamers feel.

And for the record, there's only one game that I was dead keen for that ultimately didn't make it to PC, being Red Dead Redemption. Again, that being a Rockstar game, it doesn't make me feel any better about the wait for GTAV.

@jayjay444 Lol, I understand it's annoying when PC gamers start jerkin off about how superior PC's are compared to consoles.. but tbh it's true. PC gamers can be annoying pricks, but you can't deny that PC's are far superior to consoles for gaming... I had an XBOX 360, that died a year in to purchase (Bull shit red ring of death) and I currently own a PS3 as well, but as soon as I got myself a decent computer, I barely ever touch my PS3. (Well except for the uncharted series and Last of Us) The graphics and overall performance on a PC is 100x better than on a console, and you can't even argue this unless you are retarded. The same game on high settings and resolution just looks amazing, and eventually console games just all look like shit. I can't ever switch back to consoles, because it's like everything else, when you've experienced the good shit, you don't ever wanna go back.

Tiwill44

@ooblah I'm not saying it wasn't successful, but it seems like everyone went back to their "Call of Duties" and "Leagues of Legends" pretty quickly. I haven't seen anyone playing GTA or talking about it in the last month. It's like everyone played it, enjoyed it, and moved on without looking back. I guess I just don't see people coming back to it just for some DLC.

It might be because next-gen consoles have stolen all the attention and a "new" CoD was released, but still.

ooblah

@archav3n @Accuracy158  

But you release it's going to come out for PC though.  Just because there's been no announcement, doesn't mean it's not happening.  Rockstar really only makes one high profile game every two years.  This means there going to want to maximise those profits.  They've got micro transactions in the MP, and they're probably gonna release a version for both Next (read: now current) Gen consoles and PC.  There hasn't been one major console GTA that didn't have a PC port/version, with the exception of Red Dead, which wasn't a GTA game at all.

@ooblah they can if they save and know how to budget. I can't afford to buy two systems at once, but I can buy a system this year, and buy another down the road. Unless you just have to buy a system brand new at full price, you can own two systems.

@Tiwill44 How is GTAV horrendous on consoles when you currently have nothing else to compare it to? You PC gamers are ridiculous.

@JRHT I see your point, but if I follow the same logic, fans should still be pissed about FFVII on the PS since all games before were on Nintendo systems.

@prats93

actually, he's right. the cpu's in both the ps4/xbone are a complete joke. as for their gpu's, the ps4's over a year old and considered to be on the low end of mid-range cards. xbones is complete trash, a downclocked amd 7770, absolutely horrible. ps4's is a little more respectable, but not by much.

@Drunken_kb24 @jayjay444 Sure the graphics may always be light years ahead of current consoles. But what games do you have to even enjoy those graphics with? Sure my NES is almost 30 years old, but I still have a blast playing those games every now and then.

ooblah

@Tiwill44 @ooblah  

That's your experience then.  I've got a friends list full of people still playing GTA - and several high profile games (including Battlefield 4, COD Ghosts, AC4, etc) have released since.  Judging from your profile, you don't strike me as someone who enjoys games like GTA (I could be wrong), but if you or your friends don't care for, or play GTA, then you're not likely going to be talking about it - period.  Besides, you and I both know that the majority of "talk" about a game exists primarily before a game releases, and the few weeks after the game releases - at least until there's DLC (*cough* like the article is talking about now *cough*) in which case it would become the topic of discussion again - but that point is mute because people are indeed still playing it, and still talking about it.

@mikemaj82 The only way GTA 5 could be worse on PC is if they put a 30fps cap and no graphics settings whatsoever. And even then, it would still be better because 30fps is better than 22fps.

JRHT

@mikemaj82 @JRHT @FallenOneX So because the series grew and improved once it was introduced to consoles, that means that it shouldn't be released on PC any more?

That would be a missed opportunity for Rockstar for more sales.... and for PC gamers who would like to play it.

JRHT

@FallenOneX Maybe.... but I like to think like most things of an upsetting nature, people become less pissed off as time passes.
