A profile supposedly belonging to a project manager responsible for “the programming at Gamescom” was revealed earlier this week stating that a number of high profile titles would make their debuts at the event this month including Grand Theft Auto V, a secret Valve project and more. This has now been officially debunked by organisers of the event in Cologne.
“He is not working for the official organisers of Gamescom (Koelnmesse and BIU)”, a spokesperson for the event stated.
The LinkedIn profile for a Gerald Bauser also mentions that he is responsible for supervising programs for Assassin’s Creed 3, Crysis 3 and “Guild Wars 3″ for PC and console. As it stands the profile has zero connections whatsoever.
So it looks like the wait for new Grand Theft Auto news will continue.
