Within this list is one particularly notable entry: GTA V. It was determined a couple of weeks ago that GTA V would be getting a second launch when it comes to the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The list shows that Mantle support is still pending for the game. This does not mean that the game will definitely have Mantle support, but rather that there is a good chance it might, as Rockstar has been granted access to the Private Beta of Mantle.

The list also mentions an untitled Mass Effect game, which indirectly confirms that there is a new Mass Effect game coming.

Hopefully, there will soon be an official announcement from AMD to confirm this. Until then, this is still a rumor, and despite hoping that there is truth in it, we should all still take it with a grain of salt. VideoCardz.com is known to get stuff right on a regular basis though, so there may be some merit to this rumor.

    I suppose this indicates that Rockstar are actually putting some effort into the PC port this time around. That'd be nice.

    Can I get a little more JPEG on that Mantle picture? I don't think it's been compressed quite enough.

    This is good news for AMD as it's showing that mantle is starting to pick up momentum with game developers.
