 Grand Theft Auto V  Trailer Shows Off LA-Inspired Vinewood
Grand Theft Auto V Trailer Shows Off LA-Inspired Vinewood
November 2, 2011 | By Kyle Orland

The next game in Take-Two and Rockstar's highly successful Grand Theft Auto series will return to San Andreas, the fictional city based on southern California.

A new trailer for the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V centers on an unseen narrator, who says he's moving to the city for the weather and for a chance to transition from a life of crime to the kind of life "you see... in the movies."

Characters in the trailer are shown golfing, jet-skiing and hiking, as well as engaging in series staples such as high speed police chases, armed robberies and prostitution.

The trailer contrasts tourist-friendly locales such as weightlifter-strewn beaches, rolling hillsides and sun-drenched patios with less savory urban scenes of migrant workers on the side of the road and a tent city of homeless people assembled underneath an overpass.

Shares in Take-Two jumped roughly six percent last week just after the company officially announced the widely expected sequel.

The last title in the series, 2009's Grand Theft Auto IV, has shipped over 22 million copies as of September, contributing to over 114 million sales for the series as a whole since 1997's Grand Theft Auto.

Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia predicted the next game could sell up to 25 million copies in its first year, surpassing previous Take-Two estimates of 15 to 17 million sales for the title.

There's been no indication of a planned release date for Grand Theft Auto V.
