Rockstar have just dropped the first official details on the new Grand Theft Auto game.
It’s being developed by Rockstar North (as you’ll know from the trailer) and features Los Santos, the surrounding hills, countryside and beaches.
It’s the “largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created” but there’s no official mention of the San Francisco and Las Vegas-based areas that were in the San Andreas game last generation.
This suggests it’s just going to be based on LA and some outlying sections.
The game takes “a bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer” and focuses on the “pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California.”
No word on release date, or even platforms…

Update: it’s worth mentioning that the initial reveal for San Andreas just showed Los Santos. San Fierro and Las Venturas were revealed in a trailer a month later.
