Okay I will sum some stuff up he said:

Game takes place in America, in a modern mid-western city.
It feels like Chicago or a similar, large metropolis.
The main character is a white male of Irish descent, thats all I know.
The map will be huge and is going to 'dwarf' San Andreas and III combined.
There will be planes and parachutes.
Possible 'futuristic' vehicles. [Jetpacks and Suchs]
More focus on knife/hand combat.
Overhauled weapon system.
Looking at a Spring / Late 2012 release.
He worked on a part of the map that took a 15 minute in-game drive back to the city.
Carl Johnson will be in the game but he doesn't know how he will take part in the story.

QUOTE
Also the map is gonna be big, I mean huge... I designed and created some simple park/wild life areas, and if you ever played Just Cause 1 or 2 you can get a feeling of how big the game will be. Compared to older games the map will dwarf San Andreas and gta3 combined. uhmm... I know they're concentrating on close combat and putting more work into fighting with your hands and knife/ bladed weapons.

I don't buy it, and anyone knew it will take place in America.

Have to wait for E3 and hopefully, they will show us something.

Yeah he said that 'Jet packs' and such count as futuristic vehicles.

.I was layed off do to unforeseen circumstances so I will answer your questions about the new Grand Theft Auto. I don't know the laws on me giving away what little information I did learn while employed by rockstar, maybe possible lawsuit, but I don't care.. I am not going to be arrested and I am confident in my skills of avoiding identification by the company.

Good news, You're in most likely breach any NDA you had signed. also having your username with 1988 in it isn't smart either. Not hard for someone in hr to look up recently fired employees born in 1988.

Ok I did sign one so that's bad news... And ya I should have made a throwaway.



That quote makes me believe he's a troll. Also, I don't think Rockstar (or any company for that matter) is dumb enough to fire someone who worked on a project that's meant to be kept a secret. Even if the guy's work is poor, I believe they would say; "Hey, your services aren't needed for this one anymore. So, take some time off and we'll get back to you for something else." Leave him thinking he's still on the team and then fire him once the company is really to release information on it.

Yeah I'm not sure, sounds good though:

Other things I can think of off the top of my head are; huge map, advanced driving mechanics, more involved flying system and it will be funner as you won't have to fly in circles to avoid flying off the map like in the old games. I modeled and created alot of wild areas and shrub. The plants and environmental details will be interactive in that walking over, through, or driving through for example plants and bushes will flatten, damage, and alter the models.

Yeah, his grammar and kind of indifference to getting in trouble by doing this has made me skeptical.

the reddit poster has not disclosed any information that already exists. all that stuff is guess work. The Carl Johnson thing cam out in that black guys video a few weeks ago. Very suspicious.

Yeah I remember some guy who made a disturbing topic about how he only had like 48 hours to live and he had like thousands of people beleive him. Can't remember if he was caught out or just told everyone he was lying but it was f*cked up either way.

The only way a company like Rockstar keeps secrets is by requiring employees to sign non-disclosure agreements. Nobody but the top people can talk about anything publicly without permission. People who violate this are fired and/or sued and unlikely to work in the industry again.

So, fake.

I doubt he's lying... he's already taking a chance with the NDA and that's one awkward website to post a leak... but hey at least it's not one of those it will be in SA or VC nonsense... if he's accurate, i guess that explains the where is the blue hunt

After all those stories that are going around, after all the trolls that bites the dust.
I don't believe anything anymore, only R* can take that away.

So I will be waiting until they announce it

Since the guy admitted to being a troll, I'm going to lock this.
