Recent announcements have been made that the game is currently in the process of development. In September 2009 during an earnings call, [[Take-Two Interactive]] CEO Strauss Zelnick answered a listener's question about the next ''Grand Theft Auto''. He replied, "We're not going to announce it, we're not going to announce when we are going to announce it, and we are not going to announce a strategy about announcing it or about when we are going to announce it either, or about the announcement strategy surrounding the announcement of the strategy."<ref>{{cite web| Andy Robinson |url= |title=News: Take-Two on the GTA V announcement | |date=2009-09-02 |accessdate=2011-10-28}}</ref>
In a November 2009 interview with ''[[The Times]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto (series)|Grand Theft Auto]]'' producer [[Dan Houser]] discussed his work, including the future of the series.

In July 2010, Rockstar North posted seven job ads related to a new title. The firm looked to fill positions including Environment Artists, Physics Programmers and Character Animators.

In December 2010, Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick said that the company "won't annualise" its biggest franchises like ''[[Grand Theft Auto (series)|Grand Theft Auto]],'' [[Max Payne]] and ''[[Red Dead]]''. He told [[Reuters]] that doing so would threaten their quality and risk burning out consumers.<ref>{{cite web| Tom Ivan |url= |title=News: Take-Two 'won't annualise' GTA or Red Dead Redemption | |date=2010-12-02 |accessdate=2011-10-28}}</ref>
In February and March 2011, there were several possible minor leaks of supposed ''GTA'' production, including [[Domain name registry|domain name registrations]],<ref name="rumor_domains">{{cite web |url= |title=Are these Grand Theft Auto V domains? |last=Purchese |first=Robert |date=March 23, 2011 |publisher=[[Eurogamer]] |accessdate=3 November 2011}}</ref> and [[Casting (performing arts)|casting calls]] featuring previous ''GTA'' characters.<ref>{{cite web| |author=User "Psy"|url= |title=Possible GTA 5 Character Details Leaked |date=2011-03-29 |accessdate=3 November 2011}}</ref> The first signs of the game went online in February 2011, via an actor's CV,<ref>{{cite web|author=Robert Purchese |url= |title=Grand Theft Auto V leak a "typo" News - Page 1 | |date=2011-02-28 |accessdate=2011-03-16}}</ref> which was followed by the discovery of Rockstar-registered ''GTA'' style URLs.<ref>{{cite web |url= |title=Rockstar Registers More Hilarious Grand Theft Auto V URLs |date=23 March, 2011 |first=Chase |last=Gren | |accessdate=26 October 2011}}</ref> In March a number of casting calls for voice acting in a project codenamed ''Rush'' were leaked onto the internet.

In June 2011, sources allegedly close to the developer said the title is "well under way", with final touches like mini-games already being applied, and a 2012 release "pretty likely". "It's the big one," they also said of the game, noting that ''GTA V''{{'}}s scale is vast.<ref name=cvgofficial>{{cite web|author= Tom Ivan |url= |title=News: Grand Theft Auto V officially announced | |date= |accessdate=2011-10-28}}</ref>
In a July 2011 interview with ''[[PSM3]]'', [[Team Bondi]] co-founder Brendan McNamara was asked if Rockstar (who published Bondi's 2011 ''[[L.A. Noire]]'') was considering the proprietary [[MotionScan]] face-scanning technology for the next ''GTA'' game. McNamara replied, "Yeah, I think they're looking at it for every game. As much as ''[[L.A. Noire]]'' is a huge game, ''Grand Theft Auto'' is incredibly huge, so you've got all the problems of how big the cast would be and how many lines would you have to record and all that kind of stuff. Obviously we'd like them to, and they're more than welcome to use MotionScan, but if they decide it's not right for that and want to use it for another game, then that's fine too."<ref>{{cite web| Andy Robinson |url= |title=News: GTA V: Rockstar 'looking at LA Noire face tech,' says Bondi | |date=2011-07-21 |accessdate=2011-10-28}}</ref>
