In a recent interview with IGN, Rockstar Games has doubled down on letting the world know that they will sufficiently have their collective minds blown once the game drops.

Rockstar told IGN that the multiplayer function for Grand Theft Auto V will redefine what 'open-world' really means. That's a pretty hefty statement considering the source.

Leslie Benzies, Rockstar North's head honcho, had a few things to say about what players could expect from Grand Theft Auto V‘s multiplayer.

“For GTA V we want to push all of these to a new level while incorporating new gameplay elements that would not have been possible before,” he said.

“The ability to switch between different characters allows the player to do things that wouldn’t have been possible in any other GTA game, and on the multiplayer side we hope that GTA V will do for multiplayer open world games what GTA III did for open world single-player games.”

“That’s what we’re working on, but we’re not ready to talk about it just yet. Refining open world multiplayer into something really special has been a huge focus of development and we are very excited to share more information with people soon.”

Care to hazard a guess about what all of this might mean for GTA V? The new trailer is scheduled to drop some time today. Keep posted for when it goes live. Let us know what your thoughts are on Twitter.
