Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) is the upcoming eleventh installment of the Grand Theft Auto video game franchise, announced for release by Rockstar Games. It has been confirmed that GTA IV will run on the RAGE game engine, the same engine that powered Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis. The game is being written by Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser. GTA IV has been nominated for a 2006 Golden Joystick Award in the One To Watch For 2007 category.

According to Janco Partners analyst Mike Mickey, a financial consultant for Take-Two Interactive Software, around 150 developers are working on Grand Theft Auto IV. The analyst also found that Rockstar Games is "fully capable of ushering in an entertainment experience categorically superior to the prior cycle’s GTA product." This is compared to about 130 non-voice actors and non-motion-capture actors listed in the credits for 2002's Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Lazlow Jones, who has played the voice of the radio presenter 'Lazlow' in GTA III, Vice City, San Andreas, Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories, is labeled as part of the cast for the game. Also listed as part of the GTA IV cast is Navid Khonsari, who voiced the porn host in Max Payne 2 and has also voiced characters in GTA games as well, including pedestrians.

During Microsoft's 2006 Eł press conference on May 9, it was announced that Grand Theft Auto IV would be available for the Xbox 360 and that Rockstar will offer exclusive episodic content via Xbox Live for the Xbox 360 version. This had been confirmed by Rockstar, announcing two extra, exclusive episodes. After the press conference, Rockstar Games' parent company, Take-Two Interactive, posted a press release announcing Grand Theft Auto IV will be released simultaneously for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms.

Peter Moore, head of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business division announced that Rockstar Games is working on two downloadable packs for GTA IV exclusively on the Xbox 360, which will probably be available within months of the game's release date. Moore described the downloads as "epic episode packs," and not just an extra car or character. A press release during the conference said that the packs would add "hours of entirely new gameplay" to the game. .[7]. There have been no details on pricing of the downloads revealed. The nature of exclusivity on these episodes is still in vague detail.
