| I doubt anyone exists off mission except for whichever player you choose.|
When you switch to Trevor, Michael and Franklin are non-existent. When you switch to Michael, Franklin and Trevor are nowhere to be found on the map. ONLY on mission or when switching and actually being in control of them can you see them. If you are free roam as trevor, michael doesn't exist until you switch to him, franklin either.
This is what I read - and I have been lookin for it for 20 minutes now, so no source from me - but I am "pretty sure" (I could be wrong, I know) that you CANNOT see the other characters off-mission unless you are controlling them.
Is this wrong or right? Or is it still unknown? Because I distinctly remember someone in an interview saying you can have the players together on-mission, but can only ever see one of them at a time when off-mission... in other words - you cannot go watch them live their lives. You will need to call them and set something up, you cannot just go watch them live and bump into them or blow up their car etc.
I disagree. I think they will exist when you don't control them. It shouldn't be too much for R* to give the characters a weekly schedule to follow when on their own. It's just 3 characters. They all have homes and I think they will chill there most of the time by default like Michael watching his movies or sitting by his pool drinking and every now and then they will do an activity like Michael shopping with family. We'll just have to wait and see but that's what I got from the ”they will go about their daily lives” bit.
