Rockstar have announced the inclusion of their Grand Theft Auto series in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s British Design 1948–2012: Innovation in the Modern Age exhibition.
The exhibition, running now through August 12th, explores how British designers have responded to economic, political and cultural forces that have fundamentally shaped how we live today, spanning the time period from the 1948 ‘Austerity Games’ to this summer’s Olympic Games in London.
Representing each Grand Theft Auto title in the franchise and showcasing the innovation of living metropolises and open world gameplay, the exhibit features a commemorative video chronicling the history of Rockstar’s series.
