Grand Theft Auto V Announcement

Following yesterday's trailer release, Rockstar Games officially announces Grand Theft Auto V. They offer an assortment of GTAV logo desktops, backgrounds, avatars, and icons, and the following word on the open-world action sequel:

We are very proud to officially announce that Grand Theft Auto V is in full development.

Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.

A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California.

People still care about GTA?

from wiki:

Ever since 2001, the Grand Theft Auto series has been a major success, both critically and financially. It has generated perfect or near perfect reviews and scores on almost all of the games, and has sold over 114 million copies worldwide, as of September 2011.[1] The Times Online reported that Grand Theft Auto IV, the latest console instalment, recorded 609,000 copies in the UK on its first day of release.[95] In its first week, Grand Theft Auto IV sold approximately 6 million copies worldwide and grossed over $500 million.[96]

The series has broken several records, resulting in Guinness World Records awarding the series 10 world records in the Gamer's Edition 2008. These records include Most Guest Stars in a Video Game Series, Largest Voice Cast in a Video Game (GTA: San Andreas), Largest In-Game Soundtrack (GTA: San Andreas). It also held the title of Most Successful Entertainment Launch of All Time (GTA IV), but has since been eclipsed by the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Guinness World Records also ranked Grand Theft Auto in third place on their list of top 50 console games of all time based on initial impact and lasting legacy.[97] GTA: San Andreas is listed as the most successful game in the PlayStation 2 according to The Guinness World Records 2009 Gamer's Edition.

YUUUUUPP! I would say people still care, and will continue to care.

GTA4 alone sold aprx 22 million. If you go back when the game came out, I said it would do 20 million and some people here didn't think so. oh well. The next one will do at least 20 million as long as it is released on PC, otherwise I think it will cap at about 14-15 million on consoles only.

A lot of their success has to do with people like me and a few of my friends. I bought GTA4 originally when it came out on Xbox so I could play it with a few friends. When it eventually came out on PC and went on sale on Steam, I bought the edition with both DLC's so I could play with friends on the PC as well. I've been a die hard GTA fan since the original top down game. Not going to change for me. I've bought 3 copies of 3, VC, and SA. 2 Copies of 4. And probably 3 copies of GTA GTA London and GTA 2 each.
