New GTA 5 trailer could hit Monday, preorder tat reveals in-game locations

Future Shop and Target correspondence points to imminent newsbomb

Grand Theft Auto 5's long career in the shadows may be about to end, as letters allegedly sent to retailers suggest that a new trailer will launch by or before Monday 5th November, the date the game becomes available to preorder.

GamingEverything and AGB have the letters in question, along with shots of some interesting pre-order incentives. There's a selection of dinky photo viewers which show images of five areas from the new San Andreas - rural Grapeseed, the rocky Zancudo River, notoriety-steeped Vinewood Hills, the afore-seen Del Perro Pier and, er, canally Vespucci Canals.


The letter to Target notes that "we have just released the second trailer for Grand Theft Auto V" in reference to the pre-order date. It's possible the letters have been circulated ahead of schedule, but more likely that recent extreme weather on the US eastern seaboard is to blame.

"We are working on a second trailer - unfortunately Hurricane Sandy has derailed our plans somewhat but we will have something to show soon," reads a Rockstar statement sent to AGB. "It's hard to be precise as we have no power whatsoever in our New York office. We hope everyone else in affected areas is doing okay."
