Grand Theft Auto V not coming to Wii 2 after all?

Grand Theft Auto logoAn earlier rumour of Grand Theft Auto V set to make an appearance as a Wii 2 launch title (naturally) caused much stirring in the gaming community. It seems that rumour took a real punch now, as Games.On.Net has been contacted by its original source, 01net, and made aware of a glaring error: nothing was ever mentioned about GTA 5 – 01net only meant to say that Rockstar had their hands on a development kit. Here is the full letter from 01net:

We did publish a story on Monday about Rockstar, but to say that the British studio already have a devkit. Nothing more. We have absolutely no idea about whether or not a GTA V is planned on Wii 2, nor if Rockstar is willing to have a launch title.

Our details about the NGP specs and then the Wii 2 “project Café” console are serious and we try not to be engaged with unserious rumors.

This doesn’t mean that Grand Theft Auto V isn’t coming to the Wii 2, or that it won’t be a launch title, but it definitely moves the possibility from “could actually happen” back to “wishful thinking.” For now, though, consider the rumour debunked.

    Did some1 notice that part where said that their “details about the NGP specs and then the Wii 2 “project Café” console are serious” ?

    Let’s hope their Wii 2-sources are as good as the NGP ones. But it will be a shame if there isn’t a GTA V at the launch because it could affect the sales strongly. Well, this means there will be more consoles available for us Ninty fans =P
