gamescom organizers has said Grand Theft Auto 5 won't be making an appearance during this year's event.
Rockstar had been expected to be present at the show due to the official gamescom promotional video containing brief footage of the game. However, communications manager Franko Fischer has dismissed the possibility.
"Rockstar Games is not scheduled and has never been scheduled to exhibit at Gamescom 2012.
"We apologise for any confusion this may have caused.
"Although GTA 5 won't be at the show, I think we will once again have the most spectacular world premieres set for the events."
Since GTA 5's debut trailer, Rockstar has only released two screenshots of the title. More assets and details, though, will be released "soon".
