What we know already

Hey guys, did not see any posts like this so thought i might put together some confirmed, and some of the unconfirmed yet possible features to the game

 

Confirmed:

 

A (provisional) logo - You will see it everywhere and i'm sure you have already seen this

 

Trailer release date - 18:00pm GMT Wednesday 2ND November 2011

 

 

 

 

Assumptions

 

It will NOT be in liberty city - I may get some flak for this one, but come on, i think we can safely say that rockstar, in their right minds, would not use liberty city AGAIN this soon after IV

 

A 2012 release date - I think we can safely say, waiting this long, that rockstar would not dare delay a GTA game again on the scale of IV

 

GTA 5 will be set in the modern day - Hate to say it but i think its now the trend, i think GTA 5 will be set in 2012

 

The story will revolve a lot around money - The logo says it all

 

 

 

 

Rumors:

 

Grand theft auto 5 will take place in Los Santos - According to kokatu http://kotaku.com/5853279/grand-theft-auto...iple-characters

 

GTA 5 will use multiple characters - Again according to kokatu and at the same URL as above; http://kotaku.com/5853279/grand-theft-auto...iple-characters

 

The game will feature a cast of FBI agents, IT specialists etc. what you may consider a very GTA cast - http://kotaku.com/5778968/is-grand-theft-a...s-major-players

 

 

 

 

I will do some more research and add to this post

nice post. I know it wont be LC either. it would be bad for the game as it is losing its novelty. LC was used to much. Maybe in the future we can go back to LC in a new era with it looking more like NY with the new WTC and in summer time.

I really hope it doesn't have multiple protagonists. In corridor/level based games it's alright, but I hate it in sandbox games.

 

Also I'll wear a big purple hat naked, with clown shoes on down the street if it's set in LC again.

Are Kokatu a reliable source? I mean, have they brought leaked info to the attention of fans before? Have they got it wrong before?

 

I think they mean multiple characters for like DLC. Like in EFLC. We played as two different characters in the same city.

 

So, if it's LA? Another metropolis? No multicities? No small towns, no countryside?

Every numbered GTA has started in Liberty City. It is ENTIRELY possible that V will start on the Wall St analog in Liberty and then move out from there. It would fit my theory of a Riches to Rags story.

I have heard good things about their rumors, but currently focusing my research on that

Fair point, but GTA II wasn't in LC. Interesting enough every GTA on a new platform has started off in LC.

Kotaku have published an open casting call for voice talent, detailing some of the characters from the game. There is no indication of who is the main character, or even if they're looking for someone to voice the main character with this list (they may already have someone; they've gone for big name actors in the past, like Samuel L. Jackson).

I've been thinking about this multiple protagonist deal. My first instinct is "No way. It won't work." But two things occur to me about this:

 

Thing1: After GTA:IV + the two episodes in which we play three characters whos' stories intertwine, it's possible that Rockstar have decided to take the concept to the next level. Like taking GTA:IV, Lost and Damned and Ballad Of Gay Tony and integrating them into one cohesive whole, only without the Impossible Trinity plotholes. They may be going Quentin Tarantino on our asses with a multithreaded storyline.

 

Thing2: Rockstar are known for their innovation, and if anyone can make this work, it's these guys.

 

 

Also I'll wear a big purple hat naked, with clown shoes on down the street if it's set in LC again.

I don't think it'll be in Liberty again either. But if it is, we expect you to video this and post it on Youtube. Okay? biggrin.gif

I was prepared for this. devil.gif

 

Either you are wrong, or you are wrong since GTA2 was the only DreamCast GTA. tounge2.gif

 

GTA2 actually did start in Liberty though, as the opening video is clearly shot in NYC. Claude was shot in Liberty in 2013 in the game and then woke up in an unspecified future (2099 likely) in Anywhere City.

 

But you are right about every new console and handheld starting in Liberty.

 

PC -> GTA1

Mac -> III

PS1 -> GTA1

PS2 -> III

PS3 -> IV

PSP -> LCS

DC -> GTA2

Xbox -> III

360 -> IV

GB -> GTA1

GBC -> GTA2

GBA -> Adv

DS -> CtW

iOS -> CtW

Mobile -> III

 

This is why I say maybe V starts on Wall St and then you lose all your boss's money and have to leave town fast. (Think the Vice City opening.)

I suspect those characters that they're in the process of casting are support characters. None of them really leap out as the protagoinst, mostly because they all seem to be fairly well-established in the game city. The recent run of games has started with the protagonist arriving in the city; Tommy Vercetti was released from prison and returned to Vice, Carl Johnson retruns to San Andreas for his mother's funeral, and Niko Bellic arrived in Liberty City after being invited there by Roman. So I'd bet on that as being the primse this time around, and no-one in the casting call seems to satisfy that. Except possibly Mitchell Hayes, who might have been promoted to a local FIB field office to get them in shape, but I don't think the game would have us playing as a law enforcement officer.

Actually i just had a thought, i will still add it to rumors, but...... i thank that casting call may be for the PS3 exclusive, AGENT. but i will still add it to the rumors list

I personally think they got the wrong end of the stick with the multiple protagonists thing. I'd say it might but only in the same vain as GTA IV (DLCs).

I'm so confident I'll even cover myself in feathers. wink.gif

 

Likely hood of LC being the location of GTA V? 0% IMO, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a cameo appearance similar to SA.

I'm in the same boat, but I think cameo similar to the intro video of GTA2, or like in "The Introduction" video where CJ was in Liberty.

That's quite possible. After all at the start of VC the opening cut scene is of Sonny in the Saint Mark's Bistro.

Very true, that means EVERY GTA has had Liberty in it, except the Londons and Vice City Stories.

Yes, I like the way the DLCs had over-lapping plots, and I think they will do that again. But I don't think protaganists will switch in the main game.

This is what I hope will happen too. I think they'll have refined the separate story strands so there are less inconsistencies. Perhaps there'll be special online co-op missions with the different characters working together, like the Impossible Trinity missions but all at once?
