Rockstar founder Sam Houser has described Grand Theft Auto V a “radical reinvention” of the game’s intellectual property.
In a press release that follows the first trailer for the game yesterday, Houser said, “Grand Theft Auto V is another radical reinvention of the Grand Theft Auto universe. We are incredibly excited to share our new vision with our fans.”
Little hard information can be gleaned from the trailer, although it has been dissected frame by frame across the Internet and speculation is rife.
The press release goes on to say, “A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California.”
