Rockstar Games has officially announced that Grand Theft Auto 5 is on the way, with a trailer lined up for web release on November 2nd via its official website.
Rumored to be set in a parody of Hollywood, Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser told The Hollywood Reporter that the company is bored of using famous actors.
“There are two reasons we don’t use the famous talent anymore,”said Houser. “One is the amount of time needed for these guys from a development standpoint. Then from a purely greater standpoint, we came to think that once the characters look so good and the facial animation is getting so good, we’ve actually moved past wanting the game to feel like its own TV show or movie come to life.
“We want it to be like this world come to life. Bringing a famous person into that is distracting. It wasn’t just a practical issue, it was also a greater issue that meant we were no longer pursuing famous people playing themselves, which still is interesting in the right context and something we’d definitely look to do again.”
Rockstar’s last ground-breaking game LA Noire featured a host of well known TV and Film actors.
