Rockstar is notoriously tight-lipped about everything when it comes to their projects. Fortunately for fans though today at 5.00pm GMT Game Informer's piece of GTA V hits the net.
Buckets of information is expected to come from the magazine's cover piece, ending a very dry spell of game details for the latest GTA in the works which is spring 2013 bound. There is no official word on a PC version of GTA V but hopefully Game Informer might have something to say.
The character Mark 'B-Dup' Wayne was never killed in GTA: San Andreas, which could mean Rockstar will have them reference events that occurred in the time of player character Carl 'CJ' Johnson.
