In an incredibly brief announcement over at Twitter, Rockstar Games have just revealed that they have begun work on the next big entry in the Grand Theft Auto series. The actual details are currently few and far between, so whether this will be GTA VI or some kind of spin-off game, nobody outside of Rockstar really knows.

"With every new project, our goal is always to significantly move beyond what we've previously delivered," reads the update. "We look forward to sharing more as soon as we are ready, so please stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official details. On behalf of our entire team, we thank you all for your support and cannot wait to step into the future with you!"

Given that the announcement was not accompanied by even a single screenshot, I think it's safe to assume that the next GTA game is still in the early stages of development. As such, I would recommend against getting too excited just yet as we're likely going to have to wait for a couple of years before actually getting to play it.

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know more once the full reveal goes live. Until then, I'm afraid all we can really do is sit and wait.
