Rockstar Games announced GTA5‘s multiplayer will be called “Grand Theft Auto Online.”
In a post on the Rockstar Newswire answering fan questions, the developer promised to reveal the multiplayer mode in full later this summer.
“Expect to hear some first details soon,” Rockstar wrote. “It’s called Grand Theft Auto Online and we’re very excited to unveil it for you sometime this summer.”
According to Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto Online will be an evolution of GTAIV‘s multiplayer, with a stronger emphasis on preventing cheating.
“Ever since Grand Theft Auto IV was released, we’ve continued to integrate newer and stronger methods of cheat detection and prevention for each of our games,” the developer stated in the Rockstar Newswire post. “While we have yet to reveal specifically what new anti-cheating measures we have planned for GTAV, rest assured that we’re focused on creating as level a playing field and as fair, fun (and healthy as you say) an experience as possible for everyone.
“There will always be some people who want to cheat but we are going to do our best to stop it. We have spent a lot of time and effort making an incredible Online experience and proper support is part of that package.”
GTA V launches on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 worldwide September 17.
