Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss David Reeves has confirmed earlier speculation that Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto franchise is headed to the PSP this Autumn.
Reeves went on to say that the PSP GTA game titled Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, will ship soon after the release of Sony’s handheld PSP in Europe on September 1st.
This is the first official word on both the name and the planned launch window of the game, and the choice of “Liberty City Stories” as the subtitle is already fuelling much speculation about the content of the game – Liberty City being the metropolis in which the first PS3 GTA title was set.
It’s expected that Rockstar will show off a version of the game behind closed doors at the E3 show, which kicks off in a matter of hours here in Los Angeles.
