Hurricane Sandy Delays Second GTA V Trailer

From the newest edition of the Rockstar Newswire, the official online newsletter for the makers of Grand Theft Auto: “We are working on a second trailer — unfortunately Hurricane Sandy has derailed our plans somewhat but we will have something to show soon. Its hard to be precise as we have no power whatsoever in our New York office. We hope everyone else in affected areas is doing OK.”

Totally understandable when you consider that Rockstar’s main offices, where they write the games, oversee development and I think make the trailers, is in the part of lower Manhattan that is currently in its third day of blackout with power not expected to be restored for another couple of days. Our headquarters, the home offices of Gawker Media, are just a few blocks from Rockstar’s and are also without power and not conveniently accessible by mass transit any more. All of the chunk of Manhattan that you can see in the above Google Map satellite image is blacked out, with no subway service.

The first trailer for GTA V was released on November 2, 2011, almost exactly a year ago. The game is scheduled for a (northern) spring 2013 release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.


    Damn it Sandy! This is the last straw!

    The trailers kinda the last thing in a line of priorities when it comes to peoples safety... we'll get it eventually but anyone who's *really* upset about it needs a bloody reality check. All in good time R* :)

      You are right, at this time the last thing we need is humour.

        No, what we need is to make sure everyones alright before we get a videogame trailer. What we need is for Rockstar and all other companies to make sure all their employees are safe and accounted for. SHAME on me for putting the value of human life before videogames. SHAME.

          Shame indeed. You had to be "that guy" didn't you? You don't seriously think the first poster cares about a video game trailer over other people's safety do you?

    It's already been a year since the last trailer? Wow, gone way too quick.

    Can't wait to see it! Soldier on Rockstar.
