Aweeee yeah! Over at the Rockstar Games Newswire, they recently fielded some user questions, one of which was “Why don’t you give us more news?” – received via Mouthoff. Rockstar’s response was a doozy:
As we have said before, we have often had long gaps between asset releases on previous games and will continue to do so in the future. We are sorry if you find this frustrating, but please understand, we don’t do this because we ‘don’t care about our fans’ ‘don’t respect our fans’ ‘hate GTA fans etc’ – precisely the opposite! We do it because we want to make sure we only release 100% correct information, and because we want to keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it. The only things we care about are that you enjoy the experience of actually playing the game and that we release accurate information. We just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and will not be for a while yet. We did, however, manage to sneak a quick screenshot out for you… it’s not much, but we thought it was pretty fun.
Then of course our art team said that no single shot could encapsulate the game properly, so they gave us another…
We will try and get some more screens for you soon and then another trailer when we are ready.
