Rockstar Confirms Los Santos as GTA V Location

Rockstar Confirms Los Santos as GTA V Location

The first official trailer for Grand Theft Auto V took the gaming world by storm yesterday. Speculation ran wild as news outlets and fans picked apart the video for everything from characters to gameplay hints. Many were quick to point to Los Santos (the fictional Los Angeles introduced in GTA: San Andreas) as the game’s main city, but scenes of the surrounding countryside and mountains left hope that the entire state of San Andreas was returning. Rockstar Games has not yet refuted this, but the developer has confirmed that Los Santos has a special focus:

Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created . . . A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California.

While no mention is made of San Andreas cities San Fierro or Las Venturas, Rockstar seems to be aiming for its biggest game world yet. Only time will tell what that world includes.

Stay tuned to Vivid Gamer for all things Grand Theft Auto V, and sound off in the comments with your thoughts on Los Santos as the game’s location.
