Everything was pretty much rumour via word of mouth. But it was the same crap spouted. "My cousin knows someone at Rockstar."

 

I'm sure everyone had local rumours about how the next GTA game would be set in their home-town. The biggest visual 'leaks' I can remember is people mocking up fake game cases and posting them on forums.

 

It didn't really start until after SA in the build up to GTA IV, when this forum started gaining numbers really.

 

On top of that, there was very little room for us all to sit there speculating on what could be next. Because we'd only have the games to play for a year or so before we had magazine features for a new game. There wasn't any speculation really because there was no wait for the next game. GTA IV is the first time we waited a significant amount of time and so that's when the real speculation began.

 

But yeah, I distinctly remember a lot of word of mouth BS before and after SA came out about what would be next, school friends, people working in game stores etc, all claiming they knew someone making a game or claiming they had the game. But of course in person back then it was easier to shut someone up for being dense. But it was a limited because as I've said, we were all putting crazy hours into III and VC and before we expected it we'd have a new game to play.

You can look around our own GTANet.com's old articles to find some good stuff.

After that there was probably stuff for IV too. A lot of crap was posted in other message boards (and also here) back then because there was no social media, so it was either people from magazines or other message boards going "Omg".

the "leaks" leading up to GTA V were fun. I joined here sometime after the first trailer dropped in 2011, I think I came in several months later around 2012. the best ones were the gameplay footage of the one cool PS3 game that got cancelled, where the protagonists look like Walt and Jesse lmao

It wasn't just the build up, but it peaked after the release.

 

That's when the real rumors started. sh*t like Bigfoot, Leatherface, Loch Ness Monster, Aliens, etc. All in GTA SA and being spread via word of mouth.

 

My favorite one involved Ed Edd n Eddy - my friend completely bullsh*tted me (I was a huge EEnE fan) and told me you could unlock a secret mission in a random trailer park where you kill the Kankers, and they were working with Big Smoke and the Ballas against Grove Street.

 

sh*t was f*cking mental back then, f*ck sometimes I miss elementary school.

They were off by 1 year. And it wasn't the end of the world, but the end of Grand Theft Auto.
