GTA V will not make an appearance at gamescom, with organisers confirming footage shown in a previous promotion video for the event was added “in error.”
Gamescom project manager Tim Endres explained to CVG that, “Rockstar Games is not scheduled and has never been scheduled to exhibit at Gamescom 2012.
“We apologize for any confusion this may have caused,” he added.
The offending footage has now been removed from the video, as has any hope of Rockstar exhibiting at the event.
We’d imagine that gamescom will mainly consist of games we already know about, although Sony, Capcom and EA may have something to announce when they all host their press conferences before the show kicks off.
gamescom itself takes place August 15 – 19 in Cologne, Germany.
