For a while there, we would have bet that Grand Theft Auto V would have made an appearance at E3 2011. All of those casting call slip-ups and Gilbert Gottfried tweeting that he'd be playing the lead role, really had us going.
E3 came and went, but nothing on the best-selling franchise. Developer, Rockstar Games wasn't even at E3 at all.
But now, not even a month after E3, sources are telling GameSpot that Grand Theft Auto V is "well under way" and is pretty much complete. The finishing touches are being put on the game, and things like mini-games are being added, claims the unnamed source.
The source added that a 2012 was "pretty likely", and that the game was vast in scale. Not surprising considering the size of past Grand Theft Auto games, or Rockstar-developed games in general.
This is all very unofficial, but as soon as anything more concrete breaks, you can be damn sure we'll be there to update you.
