Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto V will be releasing worldwide for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the spring of 2013.
The game will take place in the fictional city of Los Santos, set in a present-day Southern California. The city is modeled after Los Angeles and was one of the three urban locales that starred in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
“Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V takes place in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California in the largest and most thriving game-world we have ever created set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and for miles beyond – from the tops of the mountains to the depths of the ocean,” read the official announcement on the Rockstar Newswire.
Beginning November 5 of next week, the game will be available for preorder everywhere and fans can expect new information on the game to be available during the month.
