GTA V Information Will Come in a 'Few Months'

By Chris | 13th Feb 2012 at 23:59 GMT in GTA V | 15 Comments

The following is an excerpt from Rockstar Games' latest Q&A on the Newswire:

"When will we know more about #GTAV" - Fash08 (via Twitter)

"When's the release date for GTA5" - Akiieran (via Twitter)

"Can we expect a 2nd trailer this year for GTAV?" - mats hoi

"Any more news about GTAV on the way, I can't wait!!!!" - mattoneill1991 (via Twitter)

First of all, we'd like to again thank you and everyone out there for the amazing response to the debut Grand Theft Auto V trailer. We know that there are a ton of questions you all have about the game, including release date and lots else.

Right now, we are very hard at work on the game and are excited as well to show and tell you more as development progresses - expect that we'll be talking much more about GTAV starting at some point in a few months' time.

Please hang tight until then and thank you all for your patience and support!

"Rockstar, I really can't wait for new information about the new GTA. And is it only in Los Santos or too in SF and LV?" - MatsvanStam

As we revealed in our announcement about the game being officially in full development, Grand Theft Auto V is set in the city of Los Santos and its surrounding hills, countryside and beaches – and it will be the largest and most ambitious open world game we've ever created…

Some of you will probably be disappointed to hear that Rockstar are going to be quiet on the GTA V front for another few months. But it makes perfect sense. Rockstar will be using the time between now and the end of May to promote Max Payne 3. As soon as that's released Rockstar can dive straight back into GTA mode and feed our ferocious appetites.

One more thing, with this information we can finally lay the tired old 2405 theory to bed. Hooray!

As for the second question, Rockstar once again confirm that GTA V is set just in Los Santos, but will include "surrounding hills, countryside and beaches." A fairly popular theory at the moment is that Rockstar could release additional cities as DLC, although the feasibility of this is somewhat questionable, not least because of their size. There were no questions or comments on that aspect of it, so theories regarding this are still up in the air for now.

If you've got any thoughts on the game feel free to discuss them with others in our forums.

TGTAP Mobile Website Launched

By Chris | 1st Feb 2012 at 18:46 GMT in General | 5 Comments

IPB ImageThe beginning of another month brings about the beginning of something new here at The GTA Place; the launch of our dedicated mobile website.

If you've ever tried to browse The GTA Place on your phone or any other mobile device you'll have realised just how cumbersome and slow it was; large images, small links, and a hell of a lot of scrolling, not to mention data usage. With TGTAP's new mobile website you no longer have to worry about any of that. We've stripped away all the big images, removed unnecessary JavaScript, and tailored everything to fit perfectly on smaller screens, with no horizontal scrolling! In fact, pages on our mobile site could theoretically load up to 15 times quicker than the desktop site, this is especially good news for those of you who experience slower connections or who have limited data usage.

We've seen a huge increase in mobile traffic over the last 3 months, and over 25,000 of you now browse the site from your mobile devices every month. We think a lot of you will be pleased about this development. The website has been tested on many different devices and smartphones including iPhones, Android phones, BlackBerrys, and Windows Phone. It's will even work on many old WAP-enabled "dumbphones". If you want to see it in action on your device, just head on over to Or just go to the normal site, you'll be redirected automatically but we don't force this, you'll always have the option to go back to the full desktop website if you wish.

If you spot any bugs or want to suggest any improvements we can make, let us know in the comments. If it's a bug you're reporting please let us know your device and browser so we can look into it in more detail.
