Glass Box Engine in GTA V?

Now I'm not entirely sure whether that engine is strictly limited to Maxis or if Rockstar is capable of using it too, and if not I'm sure Rockstars capable of mimicking it in their own way, and if anything improve on it.
I believe it was in the huge information blast from the previews that it said how you could potentially see a pedestrian waiting at a bus stop in the morning, only to later see them working on a lawn in the afternoon. That sounded very similar to SimCity in my opinion. That kind of pedestrian AI and realism would really make GTA that much better and would really make the world feel alive.
What do you guys think? Do you think they have the Glass Box engine or something similar to it working the pedestrians in the game? Or do you think that its basically the same generic AI improvement in pedestrians like previous GTA games?

As for the engine, it's a completely different thing. Sim City's engine was made to do one specific thing and that is a simulation of a city. GTA engine isn't made for that just like Sim City engine isn't made to have you drive, dive, walk around, have shootouts etc.. engines are made with the game in mind.

Why would Rockstar use an engine that's not only owned by a competitor but isn't even designed for the type of game GTA is?
