"The new game revolves around a satirical recreation of southern California. With players able to switch between three protagonists, the 49-square-mile world boasts a welter of activities, such as scuba diving with sharks and hijacking trains"
49 SQUARE MILES.
"GTA V is larger than San Andreas, GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption combined" statement means
GTA V could be roughly 30 sq m (somewhere in the ballpark) "
If what we are hearing is true, and GTA V is 49 square miles. Ho...ly..... SHEEEIT!
EDIT: Acidentally put "released" instead of "release". Apologies!
