Fans everywhere can rejoice, as Rockstar announced Grand Theft Auto V is expected to launch next spring throughout the world for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Curiously, there's no mention of a PC release, so it's more than likely coming out a little after the console versions. The developer also announced pre-orders go live on November 5.
Grand Theft Auto V takes place in a reimagined Southern California that Rockstar claims is the "largest and most thriving game-world" it's ever made. The action happens not just in the city of Los Santos, but the surrounding mountains, forests, and even the ocean. Recent screenshots have shown off just some of the surrounding countryside, but we won't have to wait too long before finding out more, as Rockstar promises more information is arriving in November.
Rockstar has been teasing GTA V for a while now, but previously would not commit to a release date or even a release window. Now we have something to look forward to, and hopefully something to get us through the summer months.
