Rockstar confirms Grand Theft Auto V

Rockstar Games has confirmed the inevitable: the planned release of Grand Theft Auto V. Sadly, that's about all the company has confirmed.

In a teaser image released today, Rockstar confirmed - if confirmation were needed, which given the success of the series seems vanishingly unlikely - that its third-person steal-'em-up Grand Theft Auto is getting a fifth outing.

Little is known about the fifth full game in the series - not counting releases like GTA: London, which were mere mission-pack updates - but the company has promised to release a trailer early next month.

For now, we have just the following image to console ourselves with as we wait to see what barely-fictionalised city Rockstar chooses next.
