I just remembered it was announced that GTAV was now officially in "full development" back in November 2 2011.

Full development usually takes 2 years for a videogame. That would mean that they just now started to make it.

From the trailer it seemed pretty finished but what do we really know...

They could have lied to us as well and it is almost done but they just wanted to say "Full development" to make it seem like it didn't exist prior.

I don't know if you guys keep up with Final Fantasy XIII Versus but that game has been in full development for 2-4 years and hasn't come out yet.

So....will the same happen to GTAV? Is the reason that we have no new info/trailer because they just started working on it?

A little concerned about this, that's all. It came across my mind just now and I'd really like other peoples input.

They said it was "officialy" on full development, meaning that it was already in development, only they were super secret about it.

In my opinion i think they finished the map and locations and stuff in september '11 and started getting the voice actors and making the story in october.

I'm sure the game was at lease 60%-70% finished when they released the trailer. It's just a way of them saying "we're ready to announce the game now." Besides, they said "is in full development" not 'we just started developing", it could have been in development for 4 years and their statement would still be true.

Well, apparently GTA V was being made before IV's release but I'm not that really sure about that. Although, I do believe this game is most likely finished. Rockstar Games just want Max Payne 3 out there first..

Yes i am sure the game is two years away meaning Rockstar released a trailer 2 years early.

Did you even watch the trailer? Obviously it was not 2 years away from completion.

IMO GTA V's proper development started in 2010 or even 2009. I'd say they were the majority of the way done when the trailer came out.

They're probably in the touching up stage.

They don't need that much time as for GTA IV in my opinion, because RAGE engine is given, lots of LA files and textures are given, so it can even be released this year.

I'd say they just started work on it in 2011, with the trailer being a pre-render.

GTA V has been in development since 2007, belive it or not.

I've heard that in some Bonus Round episode on gametrailers. Mister notorious (Michael Pachter) said that people from micro$oft told him that Rockstar has been working on GTA V since 2007.

Do you think anyone can take you seriously if you use "$" in place of "s"? Yeah, they sure can!

I wouldn't doubt they were toying with ideas such as location, but as for full hands on development? I don't think so.

Rockstar never use pre renders. Plus how would all those la setting leaks have come out if they werent in development for at least a year.

So you think like that but keep believing in 2012 release?

Most likely it was in full development long before we knew anything about it.

I can't find the article back, but when S.A. was just released there was an interview with Dan telling they were already busy with writing the story for GTA IV.

Script and everything would have been written a while after the GTA IV release.

In the trailer, it seems 70-80% finished so i think they started with gta 5 around 2010.

And they've made the whole city, new cars, planes, characters in just a year (and a half)? Ne verujem... smile.gif

There's no need for insulting me... Do your calculation again. The trailer was released in 2011. That's not 2 years. BTW, you've been reported. wink.gif

I know that most people here are aware that R* north were helping Team Bondi out with L.A. Noire, as well as other projects. But come on. A game company consists of programmers, designers, etc, and when a project nears its release, people that have designed the city and landscape will be moving on to the next project. When the game (GTA IV etc.) is released the programmers are ready to start programming because they already have some part of the city to begin on.
And R* also have a compartment which takes care of optimizing and building tools for RAGE. That way plane physics etc. would already be in the building process early on..

What im saying is that GTA V have been in development since 2008 or even 2007, releasing fall 2012.
