Killer is Dead and Lost Planet 3 both fall outside top 20 in debut week
Saints Row IV has maintained its place at the top of the UK charts, as has last week’s number 2, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn manages third as it relaunches after a disastrous PC-only debut which called for the game to be thoroughly redesigned.
Rayman Legends and Madden NFL 25 stake their claims to sixth and seventh places respectively as hey hit the shops this week, but Capcom’s Lost Planet 3 can only manage 26th, with Suda 51’s much maligned Killer is Dead even further behind in 28th.
But not at the expense of the series’ popular radio stations
Studio co-founder Dan Houser told The Guardian that despite the introduction of an in-game score, the series’ traditional radio stations will remain.
“We thought [we] could do something interesting if we scored missions in GTA,” explained Houser. “Obviously we didn’t want to lose radio stations, so we thought we’d do both.
“Exactly how we’re going to balance between the two we’re not entirely sure yet – we’re still trying to figure that out. But we have some very cool people doing the score, different people, who will work in the same stem-based system that we used in the other games”.
Last week we gathered all the first GTA V details from Game Informer magazine in the US, including a breakdown on each of the game’s three main characters, dynamic missions, and more.
A massive amount of Grand Theft Auto V information will be released in the December issue of Game Informer (digital version is out November 8th), but an alleged poster put onto a Polish fan site called GTA-Five.PL has pointed out the season in which we can possibly expect the next game in the GTA series.
As you can clearly see, the supposed PlayStation 3 release window is set for Spring 2013. Though this is a European poster, GTA IV launched in Europe, Australia, and North America all on the same day back in 2009, so expect this date to apply to all those territories.
With Spring spanning the period of time from March 20th to June 20th, it could follow the lead of Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire, and Max Payne 3 as yet another big Rockstar game to release in the month of May.
Nothing, however, has been confirmed, so take this news with a big grain of salt.
We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as the new Grand Theft Auto V news is released next month.
