'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!"
