The time between April 29, 2008 and 6th of October 2011 is not four years it is 3.5 years.
The time between The release of San Andreas and the release of GTA IV - October 2004 to April 2008 was around 3.5 years.
The time between GTA IV and the release of Liberty city stories and Vice City stories was from June 6, 2006 and October 30 2006 to April 29 2008 which was about 1 to 1.5 years.
I think Vice City Stories and Liberty City stories are comparable to The Ballad Of Gay Tony and The Lost and The Damned, so using this comparison the time from the initial release of the episodes for Xbox360 October 29th (my Birthday) 2009 to now was about 2 years, so we have waited a similar amount of time in comparison to previous title, while we will be waiting longer please don't exaggerate the amount of time, and don't act like its a first.
@LC Metro, i think they have begun production of GTA V, maybe some time ago, but there is still a fair amount of work to go before rockstar makes any announcement.
Better to have it ready rather than have a delay like with the release of GTA IV.
It only took R* four yesrs last time around because they had to make a new graphics engine. It should take less time now. Another thing, TLAD+TBOGT are NOT comparable to VCS and LCS. They had way less missions, weapons, vehicles, and features.
