Rockstar Games made the official announcement on where the next game in the GTA series will be set today and the anticipated release date. If you’re a fan of these games then mark your calendar for October 19, 2004 in North America.
“In the past couple of years, we have put an enormous amount of pressure on ourselves to ensure we do everything possible to exceed people’s expectations with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas,” stated Sam Houser, President of Rockstar Games. “Even though we still have eight months to go, we are starting to become very proud of what we have achieved and we can’t wait to get the game into players’ hands.”
Leslie Benzies, President of Rockstar North, stated, “We are extremely humbled by the success of the Grand Theft Auto series and it has made us push ourselves further than ever to create a title in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that will hopefully redefine the Grand Theft Auto series and revolutionize open-ended gameplay and video game production values.”
Not much else is known as this point, but the major game sites will probably have previews up within a day or so.
