Sad news today concerning Rockstar Games. After the wave of success they are riding with Red Dead Redemption, something isn’t quite right. We got an email stating that they have decided that they will not be making a presence at this year’s E3.
A company spokesperson says that instead it will be focusing on scheduling its own dedicated press rounds at its headquarters in the coming weeks.
“In the end, we feel we simply don’t have enough time to show as much as we would like in the time available,” a spokesperson said.
There are also rumors saying that the development team behind Grand Theft Auto had a game reveal scheduled, but that it has since been pulled.
All may not be lost, for those of you who may remember, GTA IV was announced during the Microsoft press conference at E3 in 2006. Our hunch is they still may be mentioned at certain press conferences, but will not be on the game show floor.
[UPDATE] Rockstar has just announced a press meeting on June 8th about their 2nd Quarter results, so we might get some better answers then. ICGamers will be there and bring you the latest.
