Rumor: GTA IV packing multiplayer for up to 16

Filed under: ,

Here's an interesting factoid for you: today was supposed to mark the release of the hugely anticipated (and obviously delayed) Grand Theft Auto IV for both Xbox 360 and PS3. Instead, we got a new Tony Hawk game ...

Now for an rather pedestrian rumor: GamingExcellence managed to snag some time with a Rockstar rep at a recent Sony press event in Toronto where they supposedly revealed that GTA IV will pack a multiplayer mode "aiming for at least 16 simultaneous players, with more than just the usual deathmatch mode." Though we knew that GTA IV would come with multiplayer functionality - something that the PSP versions had but the console versions did not - we're anxious to hear more details on precisely what that functionality is.

Funny, such a trifle of a rumor on what - perhaps in some other dimension where software hits its projected street date - would have been one of the biggest video game events of the year (all time?).
