207w ago - In a recent interview with GameInformer.com (linked above), the director of analyst services for Electronic Entertainment Design and Research (EEDAR) Jesse Divnich predicted a new Grand Theft Auto game will be unveiled at E3 2010 in June.
To quote: "I think we're going to hear about another Grand Theft Auto. I think there won't be any playable stuff. I think they'll give you some type of teaser, because we do think that a year from then in 2011 we're going to see another Grand Theft Auto."
We asked Divnich about whether Sony or Microsoft would try and nab some sort of exclusive rights to the newest GTA, but he thought that those days were over.
"I don't foresee Microsoft or Sony attempting to obtain any type of exclusivity with the next Grand Theft Auto. Microsoft paid a lot of money for exclusivity on the downloadable content for GTA IV, which unfortunately did little to move consoles for Microsoft."

they should make it somewhere that has lots of wierd countryside like san andreas - that was one of the best things in gta history - the contrast of landscapes - gta4 was amazing but it was a bit monotone san andreas was much more dynamic.
the countryside had a lot of character - lots of funny features too and it was a proper trip driving around all those wierd places - sometimes i felt like i couldn't wait to drive around the back roads with k-rose on - please rockstar bring back the countryside!
That game is last gen, its not that old for a remake to happen and most of us can go grab a copy and play it on a $100 (new) ps2 system. Plus maybe we could get this a pstwo classic off the psn, so why remake san andres? I wasnt a follower of gta, in fact I played a little gta 1 and never played another gta again, but gta IV hooked me in. GTA IV is one of the best titles available this generation and vice city or san andres with another story and missions would be great, but please dont do remakes theirs so much to do, we dont need to play something all over again.
What GTA brings to the table is endless storys, endless killings, endless crime and mafia, so just throw in a new character, trophys, vehicles, some gimmicks and there we have our new GTA whatever. The formula is fun and satisfying.
