It’s predecessor was a critically and commercially acclaimed game with sales over 10 million on PS3 and Xbox 360.

According to a Gamespot source, the game is in development and is expected to release next year. It is also rumoured to contain minigames. GTA IV cost $100 million to develop and Pachter believes GTA V has already eaten $80 million of Take-Two’s money.
