Despite the recent launch of Max Payne 3 and upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games, developer and publisher of the GTA franchise and Agent, an upcoming PS3 exclusive announced June of 2009 during the Sony press conference at E3, Rockstar Games will not have a formal presence at E3 this year. While the reasoning behind this decision remains unknown up to this point, do not let this fool you into believing Rockstar Games will not have any presence at all.
With Grand Theft Auto V likely launching before E3 2013, Rockstar Games understands there is no better event to publicize a game, such as Grand Theft Auto, than E3. With Sony and Microsoft both hosting dedicated press conferences, as they do every year, gamers should expect something to be mentioned in regards to Rockstar whether it is Sony or Microsoft receiving exclusive content for Grand Theft Auto V, more details from Sony on the upcoming exclusive, Agent, or something completely out of the woodworks.
E3 2012 will unarguably be intense and loaded with announcements that will have gamers drooling for months to come. Watch as I go more in-depth on the topic and provide some insight into the possibilities of a E3 2012 splash from Rockstar Games despite formal absence.
