Grand Theft Auto 5 Marks the Return to Los Santos

It has been four years since Rockstar revealed Grand Theft Auto 4 to the world with a trailer that took the Internet by surprise. To this date GTA 4 has sold close to 22 million copies across all platforms, and naturally everyone held their breath today as Rockstar posted their trailer for the newly announced numbered sequel.

The 84 second-long trailer offered little information regarding platforms, release dates or protagonist(s), but it confirms a location: Los Santos, the fictional version of Los Angeles seen in the previous Grand Theft Auto game San Andreas from 2004. A quick glimpse of a trio hiking in the mountains teases a big feature from the old San Andreas game, where you had the freedom to drive around the countryside between the three major cities of Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas.


The narrator follows suite from previous titles in the franchise - the American dream and rags-to-riches story. He talks about wishing to "retire from that line of work" and "be a good guy for once. A family man". Naturally, knowing Grand Theft Auto, things will not play out the way he wants it to.

Of course, it is all guesswork until we get more information from Rockstar. The first trailer of GTA IV was released more than a year before the actual release of the game, and hopefully Rockstar will offer more information in the upcoming days.  You can see the new GTA V trailer below.
