GTA IV developer gives insight to game length

  • Posted March 29th, 2008 at 12:35 EDT by

Many of you will recall that Grand Theft Auto IV has approximately 100 hours of gameplay worth playing; however, it was never confirmed as to whether this was actual single-player storyline gameplay or if it included all of the side missions as well.  Jeronimo Barrera, a senior developer at Rockstar, has given a bit of insight on the timing that it has taken most game testers to complete the single-player campaign of GTA IV:

" takes testers playing 4 hours a day, a good 2 weeks to get through the whole single-player game.”

If these game testers are throwing in overtime on Saturday and Sunday, this would figure out to be roughly 56 hours of legitimate story playtime.  It makes perfect sense that this would be the case considering you can usually spend countless hours completing all of the side objectives within a Grand Theft Auto title.  Even though it is more likely they spent 40 hours completing the experience, that is still a substantial amount of time for just the main story of the game.

As the day of release draws near and everyone's anticipation increases steadily, we'll bring you anything else new regarding this title.
