Rockstar Games has released two new screenshots for Grand Theft Auto 5, the first new assets since the game was revealed with a trailer back in November 2011.

"We are very busy working on the game! Everything is going well, but the game is a huge project. We should have more information and some new assets for you soon," said Rockstar in the latest Asked & Answered.

Rockstar added: "As we have said before, we have often had long gaps between asset releases on previous games and will continue to do so in the future. We are sorry if you find this frustrating, but please understand, we don't do this because we 'don't care about our fans' 'don't respect our fans' 'hate GTA fans etc' - precisely the opposite! We do it because we want to make sure we only release 100% correct information, and because we want to keep plenty back for the actual game release so there are still lots of surprises when you play it.

"The only things we care about are that you enjoy the experience of actually playing the game and that we release accurate information. We just have not been in a position to show more of the game than the trailer and will not be for a while yet."

Rockstar says it will "try and get some more screens for you soon and then another trailer when we are ready."

We don't know when GTA 5 will be released.
