Could it actually be Carl Johnson?

Ok.. so lets start from the very beginning. CJ Returned to San andreas in 1992 after being in Liberty City for 5 year. It's estimated he would of been 18-25 (max) during his time back in San andreas.. So lets say he was 25 years old in the events of San andreas.. in GTV that would make him 45. Obviously GTA V is set 20 years later.

 

So look at his image from the GTA V trailer.. you can easily say he is in he late 30's early 40's. But it does definitely have the same resemblance to CJ. Yes he is darker skinned in San andreas and has a more square head.. but obviously due to graphically improvements GTA V will be a slight difference in the way he looks.

 

Have a look at the images again..

 

Then ask yourself.. if its not CJ. Why put him in a tank top (white) exactly the same as we all remeber CJ (would R* trick us?)

 

They definitely look the same with obviously the graphically improvement. Since we are re-visiting San andreas.. is there a guarantee that there has to be any evidence left over from Grove Street 20 years later? CJ or his brother at least?

 

If CJ or his brother aren't in San andreas.. then what reason? Are they both dead at the age of around 40-50? His brother maybe 60? Maybe they went to liberty City? (But then we didnt see them with niko in GTA IV)

 

Maybe its too good to be true.. or maybe the answer is staring us right in the face from the start? Maybe.. just maybe.. this is Carl Johnson.

 

I made a dedicated thread.. i did a search but couldnt find a dedicated topic on this subject.

I thought this is a different "era" so to speak, and that GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas, aren't apart of the new universe. I hope it's not to be honest, most likely just R* trying to throw us off.

Looks nothing like him, looks too young, different universe.

There are a thousand reasons why this isn't him and they have been discussed TOO MANY TIMES STOP SAYING THIS IS CARL JOHNSON, IT'S NOT.

I don't think it's CJ himself. Probably just a look-alike that R* put intentionally (like the balcony guy which was thought to be Tommy V) for a big nostalgia factor. The first trailer's power is the powerful nostalgia factor that brings you back the good ol' days, so no doubt it's just a look-alike for that factor. Just my 2 cents...

It's not CJ lol I always thought Rockstar did that to show remembrance to our old protagonist in the same city.

It has been relieved in an easter egg that the following protagonists(Tommy,Cj, and Vincent) have passed away.I do actually expect to see some san andreas ,gta 4 easter eggs in gta v.

Kill Frenzy!

The brown guy from V has got a dick head, CJ hasn´t. And what if Ned Luke has got the voice for Tommy Vercetti, if he actually is Tommy Vercetti?

R* have said that it's impossible to recreate a character of the III'rd area into the IV'th. But they also said that, just because they've started the IV'th era in GTA IV, that doesn't mean the III'rd era is done.

But since there are already 5 GTA's in the III'rd era (if I'm not mistaking) and their storylines are 'interwoven', I think that if they add an extra story to it, they would just ruin it.

That means they will probably continue in the IV'th era so CJ won't be in game. Maybe referations.

Of course it's CJ. That's why nobody is talking about it, because it was confirmed months ago. suicidal.gif

 

@thebig

 

The III era isn't over, because eventually they'll probably do San Andreas Stories. Easy money right there.

CJ would be about 45 years old in 2012, so it's not him. Funnily enough, that's roughly the same age as Ned Luke's character will be.

I don't think it's CJ because I can't see a 45 year old CJ wearing the same clothes 20 years later and still being chased by cops in the 'hood. Besides, CJ was pretty rich and successful by the end of San Andreas, no?

 

But, never say never. Rockstar makes the rules and can break them. If they want CJ to cross "universes" and be in V then he can.

NO. Jesus Christ! Can people stop with this sh*t? The Grand Theft Auto series is devided in 3 eras: 2D, 3D and HD.

2D: GTA, GTA London 1969, GTA London 1961, GTA II;

3D: GTA III, GTA VC, GTA Advanced, GTA SA, GTA LCS, GTA VCS;

HD: GTA IV, GTA TLaD, GTA TBoGT, GTA Chinatown Wars, GTA V;

 

The eras mean that the physical characters can't "switch" the eras. So no CJ or any character from any GTA expect IV/TLaD/TBoGT.

Maybe or maybe not. But i'm sure that rockstar will put some reference for Grove Street or CJ in the game, because they were so important in San Andreas. (city)

It's the writing on the wall in the entrance to your first safehouse in IV.

On the staircases in most apartment blocks in the game, you may spot some graffiti referring to past protagonists set in GTA III canon (Claude, Tommy, Carl (CJ), Toni, and Vic), that suggests they have passed away, though it is likely metaphorical as GTA III canon is over so they won't be seen again.

But Rockstar could change there minds.

Haha, sorry for going apesh*t. But I'll be civil, it's not CJ. He may look similar but he isn't unfortunately.

HD: GTA IV, GTA TLaD, GTA TBoGT, GTA V;

Actually, GTA Advance is in the 3D Era and Chinatown Wars is in the HD Era. They may not be in 3D or HD but they were released during that Era and have the same characters.

they don't even look alike.. and if CJ would return, why would they spoil that surprise in the very first trailer by showing him in one random scene?

Maybe CJ had to build an inter-dimensional cannon to get from his universe to the IV universe to stop the end of both universes...

Or it's just some black guy running, whatever floats your boat

It's not going to be CJ. This version of Los Santos is an entirely different version that the one in SA, therefore it would make no sense for any SA/3D era characters to return. You would have old characters in a completely new and redesigned city.

Third topic this week I have to do this with...

 

 

the “universes” are the worlds interpreted at different definitions, 2d, 3d and high definition, so we felt brands and radio / back ground characters would exist in both, but 3 dimensional characters would not. This is the logic (as far as it could be considered logical) behind it – so no, we don’t believe any GTA3 characters could exist in the GTA4 universe.

 

- Rockstar Games Ask & Answered

 

 

So yeah, if you read that it'll be clear that this applies to GTAV, as well.
