It's been one of the worse-kept secrets in the game industry for the last few years, and now it's not even a secret at all. Rockstar Games dropped the news in appropriately clandestine fashion this morning that Grand Theft Auto V does, in fact, exist.
The posting on Rockstar's official site doesn't tip much. All we have thus far is a logo (which you can see here) that uses both Roman numerals and the spelled out version of "five." It's got green in it, too. Feel free to start speculating wildly about any of those obscure details.
You thankfully won't have to speculate for too long, as a trailer for the game will debut on November 2. Granted, it's unlikely that Rockstar will show too much of its hand with a first trailer, but we might at least get a sense of setting, and possibly who the lead character might be. Or maybe it'll just be two-and-a-half minutes of that logo set to random dialogue and a Kanye West song. Who knows?
Be sure to set your appointment calendars to next Wednesday. Odds are you won't want to miss this one...even if it does just turn out to be a logo and Kanye.
