Game Informer keep trolling this because they know people want GTA V info, I mean seriously, making a huge build up, making it sound super exclusive and new, ...and it's just Call of Duty.

I take it you don't believe their Facebook post about how it was never intended to go viral, it was just supposed to be a little tease for their Facebook fans?

I dont really see the point in them trying to make it go viral, it's not like it's going to boost sales or anything, nobody has to buy the magazine to see the cover.

This must be so embarrassing for GameInformer AU. He made it sound like it was an entirely new game being revealed for the first time when really it was just the multiplayer component of the same game which comes out every year. Don't get me wrong, I understand how big the Call of Duty franchise is but when people were expecting either GTA V or Half Life 3 then that was never going to end well.

Yet, I don't think this editor did it to troll people. Andy McNamara on the other hand, that's all he's been doing. You just have to look at that second tweet in the OP to see that.

I'm sorry but a reveal that big is either going to happen on the internet or at E3. Not in GameInformer AUSTRALIA.

Call me ethnocentric but the video game world (Nintendo not included) revolves around America.

People's expectations for this were just unreasonable.

I really doubt that.

Of course they wanted it to go viral, they just were trying to diffuse the backlash from it being Black Ops 2.

If they didn't want the attention their PR head would have come out and said "no, no, this isn't GTA, this isn't BIG GAME X, it's just this cool little exclusive we have, it's for an already announced game".

You mean you can't see any circumstance where Rockstar decides to reveal their game to coincide with Gamescom, the largest gaming conference in the world? For years Rockstar have been using Gamescom over E3 and consequently Germany over America. This was said to be a "part" of a worldwide reveal, which means it could have potentially coincided with a Gamescom reveal. In hindsight, it was way off but at the time people had reason to believe it may have happened.

So if they were planning to show us anything at/during Gamescom, would they have done it already, like during the press conferences? Or do we still have time?

That's what I'm wondering.

Gamescom - I could see.

Game Informer Australia? No way. For reasons of bureaucracy if nothing else.
