So I guess E3 isn't just a venue for new games and gaming accessories. Apparently, you can also triumphantly announce that your game will hit some platforms an entire year late. What a show!
Seriously, though, that's just what Rockstar Games has done. The firm is heralding the not-so-impending arrival of Grand Theft Auto V for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. GTA V will reach those platforms "this fall," meaning anywhere from 12 to 15 months after its debut on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
There's even a new trailer up for the occasion:
Good things will come to those who waited. The announcement promises "across-the-board graphical and technical improvements," including "[i]ncreased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions." Rockstar founder Sam Houser adds that the game "looks and feels stunning enhanced by the power of these new platforms." There's even mention of a PC-exclusive video editor for "advanced movie-making."
But I wouldn't have minded living without those extras if we'd gotten the game, you know, on time.
