Earlier today, the corners of the internet that care about games went into a frenzy when Sony UK's official corporate Twitter account suggested that Grand Theft Auto V was coming to PlayStation 4.
Turns out, the tweet was just a typo. We had more than a feeling this was the case, but here's the record of what happened.
@SonyUK responded to one fan's excitement for Grand Theft Auto V by saying, "GTA V is going to be amazing, especially on the PS4! What other games are you looking forward to playing, Norman?"
Enthusiast gamers and news outlets collectively turned their heads. And rightfully so--a next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V would be the biggest news since a current-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V. @SonyUK even seemed to reiterate the point when it retweeted the same fan's original tweet, which mistakenly identified the game as coming to PS4.
A few hours ago, the matter was resolved:
Apologies for the typo about GTA V. It's due for release on PS3 on September 17th.— Sony UK (@SonyUK) August 27, 2013
So, that's that... right?
