[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, Rockstar Games confirmed it will release new Grand Theft Auto V trailers tomorrow, April 30, at 11 a.m. EDT.

The original story follows below

Rockstar Games will introduce gamers to Grand Theft Auto V protagonists Michael, Trevor, and Franklin next week through a trio of trailers, the developer suggested today in an update to its website.

No Caption Provided

No further information was divulged.

GTAV is the first entry in the open-world series to feature multiple playable protagonists for its main storyline. Players can switch between them at "nearly any time." Sometimes the three will work together, with players able to swap back and forth in a similar way to the Lego series of games.

Michael, Trevor, and Franklin each have a distinct personality, skill set, and posse of friends. When players are controlling one of the characters, the other two will leave and do something else on their own.

To date, Rockstar has released two GTAV trailers. The first was released on November 2, 2011 and provided the first look inside the gameworld, believed to be larger than Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and GTA IV combined.

The second trailer launched November 14, 2012 and focused on protagonists Michael, Trevor, and Franklin. It highlighted the stories of the three characters, as well as new areas of the game's fictional setting of Los Santos.

Earlier this week, Rockstar teased GTAV in a religious cult video showing off the fictional Kifflom religion and Epsilon Program viral marketing campaign.

GTAV launches September 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Wii U and PC versions are "up for consideration."

9:45-Palms sweating, pulse racing....I feel like I'm having an anxiety attack. Can't wait to see the new trailers and even more so I can't wait to get my hands on GTA V! I might just cocoon myself until August.

Rockstar has quite possibly the greatest marketing team of all studios.

Other developers release 20-minute gameplay trailers and people will appreciate them and move on. Rockstar announces that they will release a single screenshot or short trailer and it makes huge news across all sites.

They feed people just enough information to get them interested, yet not enough to satisfy their curiosity which leaves them coming back for more.

They're already working on the PC, PS4 and Infinity versions. PS3 and 360 is getting the final polish.

While a PC version and mods would be cool, I sorta hope it remains console-exclusive because I love watching elitist PC gamers backpedal when a game isn't ported for them; they suddenly start acting like the game is bad and they never wanted it anyway.

Or, alternatively, they'll get their port, and then whine "waaaaa, the console version shouldn't exist at all, this would be so much better if it had been built from the ground up as a PC game"

If it does come to PC I'll probably get it on Steam once it's cheap but until then I'll be perfectly happy with the 360 version.

I kind of wish it was being developed solely for next-gen consoles. Although that would require waiting even longer....but it would be epic!

Your game is up for consideration once you bring it to PC.....**** blaming pirates for a change. Good games, especially ones with a multiplayer component, get purchased.

@vaibhavp The game is I think... they want to spend the next few months making trailers, commercials, teaser websites, and other marketing BS to build the up hype. It is the way they have always done it.. its worked so far so they will just keep on doing it.....

I can't wait for the trailer I'm hardcore major crazy GTA fan right here and in my gut feeling I know GTA 5 will probably take the crown for (2013 game of the year) and I'm not saying this because I'm a hardcore fan. I know Rockstar they never make bad games they're the master of storytelling Ex RDR and game-play I can't find one bad thing about Rockstar they just perfect at what they do in the gaming industry.

I also prefer the PC version over a PS3 or X360 but if you're a true GTA fan you would buy a console just for this game to play it months earlier. Obviously majority of people who beg for a PC version are kids whose parents won't buy them a console or either a persistent PC fanboys.

@BlueTurtz No, there will be a PC version. GTA IV's PC version wasn't released until 2009. Expect it in 2014.
