GTAV Will Be A No-Show At Gamescom

Well, if the official trailer said it was coming, why shouldn't we believe it?

Unfortunately, Rockstar has confirmed that it was a mistake. A Gamescom spokesperson has told CVG that despite the bit of Grand Theft Auto V footage that found its way into a Gamescom 2012 trailer, the fact is that GTAV won't be in attendance at the show. Too bad.

Evidently, the footage was included "in error" and Gamescom communications manager Franko Fischer confirmed that in fact, "Rockstar Games is not scheduled and has never been scheduled to exhibit at Gamescom 2012." As of now, all GTAV footage has been removed from the Gamescom trailer. At the same time, Fischer said the show will still boast "the most spectacular world premieres," so at least we can look forward to those.

We're just wondering if GTAV was indeed scheduled for GC 2012 at one time, and since then has withdrawn from the event. It isn't a fun thing to think about, because there are already rumors circulating about why the game is taking a little longer than anticipated...

More vaporware I say, R* is probably hiding until they can put GTAV on the next generation of consoles.

I hope not! I really want one more GTA game this gen. Besides the mysterious trailer that they did show looked like it was in current gen graphics (Defiantly HQ graphics at that though!) I'm still predicting a summer 2013 release.

I know Rockstar didn't have a choice but to announce this game so soon because of how many people were complaining but part of me wishes they waited. This is taking forever.

i seriously cannot understand why people are acting like R*s silence is anything new!
they always announce games than go into the caves not emerging for years!
so why is it such a shock this time?
people seriously need to settle down, grow some patients and just wait!
if in 2 years time we still have heard nothing then fine then you can start piling up the tin foil hats and coat hangers!
R* never show their stuff at these events!
so why would they start now?
