Rockstar Teasing Official Grand Theft Auto V Trailer For Thursday

Update: Rockstar has declared what time we can expect to see the 'official' Grand Theft Auto V trailer tomorrow. You can see the new trailer on all the regular channels (Rockstar's YouTube, Rockstar's website, and here) at 11 am Eastern on Thursday, August 29.

We'll make sure to post the new trailer online on Game Informer as soon as it airs.

Original Story:

On Rockstar's official website, the developer is teasing a new GTA V trailer for Thursday, August 29.

The text of the post uses the wording 'official' saying, "The Official Trailer for Grand Theft Auto V will debut here." An exact time for the trailer has yet to be determined, but Rockstar says there will be an update when a time frame has been settled.

Grand Theft Auto V is only a few weeks away, and Rockstar is still offering new details about the game like the hereditary-based character creation system. The game suffered a small leak over the weekend, and it looks like there might have slipped the reveal of a PlayStation 4 version of the game. We're still waiting to learn more about that.

Grand Theft Auto V is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17.

Our Take
The very specific use of the word 'official' is a little confusing. It sort of implies that all the trailers we've seen so far have been fan-made. Realistically, it probably means it is the game's final pre-release trailer, and the one that will see heavy circulation on televsion and online advertising. In any case, I am excited to see it. Rockstar puts together the best trailers.
