Gta_lcs_052

Well, ‘Tis the season for rumors and speculation, and lately, we have seen our fair share.  The latest rumor comes to us from an alleged Rockstar employee from Glasgow, Scotland and involves Grand Theft Auto.  According to the source, the next title in the GTA series “will be titled Grand Theft Auto: London and will take place in the great city of London in 1997.”

If the info is to be believed, Rockstar will be doing away with the familiar 3 island system employed in the other GTA titles, in favor of a North, South, East, West system.  The gangster theme is said to be making another appearance, as the character is an ex-gangster who starts in the East end of London, and can unlock the North End, South End and West End respectively.  Current developmental focus is on the story line, as the game is approximately 60% completed, having the graphics and physics engines already completed.

The game is currently set to launch on the PS3 in Europe and North America in Q4 2006, so lets keep our fingers crossed.  Again, none of this has been officially confirmed by either Rockstar or Sony, so take it with a grain of salt!
