USA Today reports that the next installment of Grand Theft Auto IV will be called "Lost and Damned" and will be released exclusively on Xbox Live on February 17, 2009. The retail version of the game is required to play the new episode. "Lost and Damned" stars Johnny Klebitz, a member of Liberty City biker gang The Lost. USA Today quotes Rockstar vice president Sam Houser as saying:
"Johnny is a very different character than Niko, with a very different background. I can't go into too much detail on the story, because we try not to give away too much plot before the game is released. But I can say that the story will show you a different side of Liberty City."
Obviously, this will be a huge hit on Xbox Live. Obviously (again), I expect the Xbots to rail into the Sony Defense Force about how their version of GTAIV is the best. Round 257. Fight!!!
