Rockstar Games, the developers behind Grand Theft Auto 5, have apologised for the lack of updates regarding the hotly anticipated crime sequel, according to

Since the debut trailer for the fervently anticipated title arrived in November 2011, fans have only been treated to one more, which arrived in November last year, while screenshots have not been forthcoming since December.

To add to fans’ disappointment, the title was delayed from spring to September so that Rockstar could, in their own words, put out the best game possible.

Yet the delay and lack of information has caused widespread frustration within the GTA community, many of whom still fear the title is destined for the upcoming PlayStation 4 rather than current generation consoles.

The company took to the Rockstar Newswire to offer its apologies to frustrated fans over the lack of new details on the upcoming title.

“As we have said before, we have often had long gaps between asset releases on previous games and will continue to do so in the future. We are sorry if you find this frustrating, but please understand, we don’t do this because we ‘don’t care about our fans’, ‘don’t respect our fans’, ‘hate GTA fans etc’ – precisely the opposite!

“We do it because we want to make sure we only release 100% correct information, and because we want to keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it.

“Sorry, we can’t provide a timeline as to when you can expect more info or media from GTAV. Right now we’re just bunkered down busy working on the game and aren’t ready to share anything new – please be patient and of course there will be more to see in the months leading up to game release. Thank you.”

GTA V is due for release on September 17th this year, and is currently scheduled for release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, while a release on PC is also likely. For the first time in it’s history it features three protagonists and boasts a huge open world.
