Rockstar will seemingly keep the open world format and may take a page out of GTA Online’s book. Only a small bit of details were given, but they read
“An epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland, the game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.”
The other bit of important news is that a date for PC was not mentioned. Much like it’s predecessor it seems like it will not be coming to PC, at least not at launch. A similar approach was taken with Grand Theft Auto V, where the PC version came 7 months later.
