Rockstar has released two new screenshots from the upcoming open world game, Grand Theft Auto V. These are the first screenshots to come out since the game's debut trailer last November and they show off the massive scale of the game. Rockstar recently 'leaked' the screenshot on their Asked & Answered boards.
When asked by fans about why Rockstar don’t release more news about their upcoming open world game, the company replied, “As we have said before, we have often had long gaps between asset releases on previous games and will continue to do so in the future. We are sorry if you find this frustrating, but please understand, we don’t do this because we ‘don’t care about our fans' 'don’t respect our fans’ 'hate GTA fans etc' – precisely the opposite! We do it because we want to make sure we only release 100% correct information, and because we want to keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it. The only things we care about are that you enjoy the experience of actually playing the game and that we release accurate information. We just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and will not be for a while yet. We did, however, manage to sneak a quick screenshot out for you… it’s not much, but we thought it was pretty fun.”

“Then of course, our art team said that no single shot could encapsulate the game properly, so they gave us another…”
An amazing skyline
Rockstar also asked fans to be vary of hoaxes and scams regarding the game, “Now that we’ve announced GTAV, all the way up until game launch (and probably beyond) there is going to be no shortage of non-stop hoaxes, faked footage and screens, rampant rumors and speculation. As a rule, we are not going to get into the game of confirming or denying each of these as they happen as there is simply too much of it. Half of them we don’t even understand – for example, we have no idea what ‘the build model’ is, so have no idea if it is complete or not! Instead, we’ll leave it to fans like yourselves to decide what’s legit and what’s phony. Please assume if you don’t hear it here, it is probably mostly fakes and almost definitely not the complete truth. “
Another thing Rockstar has confirmed is that there will be no 'beta' test for the game. “There is absolutely no ‘beta’ test for the game. If you see ads or solicitations to join a beta program, beware as this could be a dodgy online phishing scam. Your best bet is to only trust information as official if you’re seeing it announced here at the Rockstar Newswire,” the company stated.
Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most anticipated games this year. Rockstar claims this is the biggest open world game they’ve ever made.
