Cameo's maybe. If they have cut lines and mo-cap they did years ago that can be used. Trevor's actor, for example, does a decent bit of other acting and his rates may be too much or his schedule not free to record more.

 

But never say never, I'm not sure they will but anything's possible.

There's potential for something fun/interesting, but R* sometimes has an inability to figure out what is fun for it's players.

 

Remember the Alien Survivals? It would probably end up like that.

I hope not. My character does not need to deal with a simp (Franklin), cvck (Michael), and crazed maniac (Trevor).

I hope not.  I'd rather have Moe, Larry and Curly.  I don't think they will.  Our character makes them look like amateurs.

No - I don't think we'll see them back. 

 

No - my opinion is that I wouldn't want my 'toon to meet them (apart from Trevor, who they've already met). 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if Rockstar gave the trio a little expanded adventure in single player once the new consoles land next year (probably just them interacting with the new casino building or something), but IMO Online and SP are different universes now.

Tbh no. GTAO's story should always centre around us (our characters) and not past protagonists.

Na, they are not memorable characters unlike past main protagonist, maybe Trevor a little bit more, not the rest, give me Niko on LC or Roman or Jacob.

No.

 

Franklin, Michael and Trevor were an innovative development and promised a new triple protagonist direction for GTA.

 

The GTAV story was to be followed by further adventures, DLC content that would feature The Trio in new situations.

 

And then GTA Online launched...and grew...and grew.

 

And so The Trio were no longer part of the agenda. They were no longer useful or necessary. Trevor featured in early GTAO activity but the "further adventures of Franklin, Michael and Trevor" are not going to happen now.

Oh, I think they do have ability. They are not creating fun, they are creating addictive game with the minimum effort possible to extract maximum profit or make you grind like there is no tomorrow.

Absolutely not.

 

The whole arc for Michael and Frank were to leave the lives they were living. Mike was called  upon to do one last favor, after that, he'd be cut from iaa. 

 

Frank was tired of gang banging, and reluctantly complied with the story just because he was promised a bunch of money. 

 

Trevor basically used iaa resources to expand his sh*t. He's since left Ron and has gone "Hollywood".  Canonically probably becoming a lifestyle coach, but realistically acknowledging Steve Ogg is too busy.

 

This whole notion of bringing in two characters that want nothing more than to relax and do nothing, and trying to boss Trevor around just ain't happening. And even if it somehow does happen, I guarantee you they'll just be another contact that tells you to pick up their dry cleaning in Paleto Bay.

then why move the timeline to 2017 in Gunrunning and subsequent releases

 

why have Cheng mention that he almost was killed at a country club (hinting at c ending)

Why have Lester mention the Union Depository?

Why have Jimmy return to work at our arcade (again hinting at c ending as Mike's family is still in town)

 

 It makes no sense to have all these hints if it doesn't lead up to something. Why have Jimmy and not eventually the trio.

 

Now granted I do think Mike and Frank are more likely to come back than Trevor (because of that whole going vinewood thing) but still

1. Because it doesn't make sense. They just added a 2020 Corvette, for the game to still take place in 2013 would make no sense at this point and barely adds to the story, both single player and multiplayer.

 

2. They need to explain why Tao is alive, since the ending that is canon involves him getting exploded.

 

3. In what way does Lester acknowledging his last really big and profitable jobs and Jimmy existing hint at a possible return? That doesn't make any sense, it's r* just acknowledging people are alive, and things have happened. Niko is confirmed to be alive, and he isn't coming back.

I just can't imagine them coming back to town and seeing gotcha cosplayers flying on jet turbines with handles, hovering cars and four wheeled submarines. Maybe they'd think the city went to sh*t, lol.
Just thinking on Niko Bellic looking through the window and seeing the  same things on Liberty City... ugh *shivers*

 

At some moment, GTAV and GTAO diverged on parallel yet different timelines.

Assuming the original poster was referring to single player GTA 6 (despite posting in the Online section), I would say yes. 

 

It's what Roxtar does. IV got a Claude reference, V got Packie and Johnny. It's a weak way of tying the franchise together. Trevor will get killed (probably without saying anything, in order to avoid paying Mr Ogg) by VI's 'badass', Michael will be seen meeting with some moneyed-up guy in the new game, and Franklin will just show up in a cameo for no reason. 

 

It's not what I want, but it's lame enough to happen.

Out of all them I can only see Franklin returning.

 

All throughout V it felt like Michael was mentoring Franklin and in Surveying the score Franklin says that he's picked up a couple things from Michael and you can see that. I was disappointed it pretty much went nowhere since I wanted to see Franklin take the lead and plan his own heist.

 

So in Online I could see Franklin could return for a new heist.

I wouldn't mind seeing them back in some type of role. Nothing can be worse than Tom Connors.

Trevor already had his part in the original heists. That's good enough for me. I also don't want to know what the main trio is doing in the modern day because that would ruin their story. It's nice that our character is friends with Lamar and that other characters from the storymode show up, but I'd rather see some new ones if Rockstar's gonna keep Online going for a while.

I personally don't want to see their GTAO rendition (mostly cause the only way a current rockstar makes Characters “alive” and “vibrant” is by making them fccking YELL at you thru intercom) But considering how uninteresting the named Online characters are, they might just do that, add the trio. Sadly.

I dunno. They are already successful enough and retired. Both Michael and Franklin want to live normal lives, and Trevor, well, I dunno. According to Ron he's a lifestyle coach now or something.

 

The Trevor contact missions take place before the V Storyline so there's that.

 

Only way I could see anything of a reference is if Jimmy would accidentalyl sneak to our Arcade office while we aren't there and activate the Lester Speaks fortune machine and find our heist basement in which we have to kidnap Jimmy which upsets both LEster and Michael. And Trevor.

The trio - probably not, but I wouldn't count out the occasional appearance of a singular protag.

The kidnapping part doesn’t make much sense. But also trevor was in the heists and those take place after the story mode iirc

The original heists are pre-story mode in the timeline as when Trevor escapes, he takes one of the impotent rage figures and we see him with that as a trinket in the story mode.

 

The online section of the game was all pre-story until Agent 14 confirmed Gunrunning was after story with his 2017 comment. :)

I find Michael to be far more memorable than the entire GTA 4 game & stories. I'd actually rank him 3rd player character in the franchise.

You've confused the intelligence agencies. In GTA V, they are with FIB. In Online, we are with IAA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'd like to see all of them return in GTAO. They don't need to be involved in missions or heists, they can be casual cameos. Maybe during a future casino update you'll see all 3 of them with Lamar & whoever else at the bar. Maybe we see Mike in the background at the film studio if they do anything with that. Maybe Frank helps us start up a cab company. We've already seen quite a bit of Trevor & Lamar, now even Jimmy as well. It would be stupid to have GTAO pushing 10+ years without having them appear considering how we have much of the same circle.

 

 

I would like for Mike & Frank to be added as AI opponents in activities like golf & tennis if they ever add that option next gen.
