It is very unlikely, but who is to say? We are the fans. Anyone think it would be nice if Niko comes back in pretty much any kind of roll you can think of?  A mob boss? A "family" uncle picking up his cousins sh*t? anything.

If he were to come back, I would go to Sam/Dan Houser's house, break in, light myself on fire, and see how many flammable objects I can come across before I burn myself to death.

Has Niko really evolved to a point in which he has to be "immortalized" like CJ or Tommy?

Nah, I want him to fade out before anything stains his reputation for me. Rockstar should do everything they can to distance themselves from past games, let the memories be memories, and the present be the present and all that.

 

I'm thinking the protagonist of VI should be a New Zealander named Okin. :p

I doubt R* would have any protag return to star in a game again. Cameos, yes, playable no

They would kill Niko off. Even if he is the protag.

Niko was a nice guy and all but he was one of the worst protagonists for that reason, imo. He was too nice. He just wanted to lay low and have a nice life. He wasn't violent anymore. It was no fun being him. I guess he was okay for GTA IV and all the seriousness that game had, but 1 GTA around himself was enough. I think that they focused too much on making a deep story for GTA IV and forgot about making the guy actually fun to play as.
But if he comes back with some short cameo appearance for a mission or a cutscene that would be really neat.

No. Niko is the best protagonist in the series IMO, but his storie's done. He doesn't need to come back.

No, his story is over, I can imagine him chilling on the beach with the money he's got at the end of his game.

That would be cool, but I highly doubt it will happen, maybe as a supporting character, but not the protagonist.

I think that SonOfLiberty is right here in that Niko's Story has been done, now it's time to move on to somebody else.

If Niko was to return, I think it should be as a supporting/minor character, but not as a protagonist, unless it was some sort of Prequel to IV showing Niko's years in the war or something :p

Niko won't come back as main character . at least this never was R* politics until that day . but why not as a protagonist . in this case it could be anything a guy infiltrated for the cops , a simple friend (of a friend) , a merchant , could be anything . i loved a lot the less violent side of IV myself . why GTA should be exclusively a game for people that want violence ..

Niko should never return as a protagonist, or even a side/minor character at that. I think the concept of having little references to Niko here and there (such as Lester's to Michael) in future GTA games without revealing too much about whats become of him.

Hell, we can't even br 100% sure that by the events of V he's even still alive.

Niko's story is kind of over. He's rich, more or less. He's got some friends. And family depending on redacted. He's comfortable already. I don't think he started a family like michael did. I think he's more or less on a permanent vacation from pretty much everything right now. And that, Mr. Townley, is why you don't turn yourself in.

I wouldn't mind if Niko would return as he is my second favourite protag from the GTA series so far. The chance of it happening though are about 0.000001% as I'm sure R* want to continue to move forward with the series.

Seriously, what would the story be if he came back? "One day while walking on the beach with roman in happy retirement, roman randomly exploded. So niko swore revenge on the italian mafia for some reason and decides to go to [insert GTA VI location here] to do so for some reason."

Impossible. Niko currently co-hosts a docu-reality in the History Channel about the relation between aliens and bowling.

Well, you said it.

 

Niko won't come back as a protag. Maybe he'll make a small cameo, but nothing major.

I say nay, he was amazing in GTA IV but would probably be too old and break his hip or something.

He's one of my favorite protagonists, but I don't want him to return. I don't want any previous protagonists to return. This is a series where each game should have a different main character. That being said, I have nothing against references to past protagonists, or even a small cameo.

What? He was only 30 in GTA IV. If he were to come back he'd be in his late 30s/early 40s at the most. Michael and Trevor are much older than him.

Yeah, but I don't see how he would come back. I mean, he pretty much solved all of his problems by shooting them in the face and stealing money. What would bring him back? What would you do? Have some mafia attack him for no reason? I don't know.

 

How many protagonists have come back in playable roles in GTA before? If anyone responds, I said PLAYABLE roles. Johnny being part of a cutscene doesn't count.

If it where to happen, the next GTA IMO will come out in 2019/19... And it might take place in Present day. If it does, there has been a 10 year gap between GTA IV's time and the supposed IMO next GTA game that will take place in 2018/19.. Niko will be old, so no. I dont want to see a badass serbian being 40 f*cking years old.
