More GTA V Rumors And Speculation

Let’s be honest, there’s going to be another Grand Theft Auto game. You don’t turn away from one of the most successful franchises of all time, especially when your last outing was so well received by the majority of critics and gamers. It’s the ‘when’ that has everyone talking when looking forward to the next Grand Theft Auto title. More rumors have surfaced about the next installment and some of the characters you may see.

It has been long rumored that one of the code names for the next GTA is ‘rush’ and the people over at VGHQ have more evidence thanks to a long trail of breadcrumbs they’ve tracked very carefully. Assuming that code name is true, then we may also have an idea of some of the characters in the game. A listing over on ‘The Agency Online’ from November details what appears to be a casting call for a large number of characters to work on a project named ‘rush’. You can check out the complete list here but it includes FBI agents, a neurotic soccer mom, a ‘weed evangelist’ and several other very interesting characters. That sounds about right for a GTA game, doesn’t it?

As usual, until we get an official word from Rockstar, write this off as a big fat rumor as none of this may be true. But hey, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun speculating, right?

  1. Goodie, totally love the GTA games and a return to LA is fine by me.

    • Same LA s great and another game set there would be great

      • A San Andreas style, done with this-gen hardware, would be first pref on my wish list.

  2. I think I’m just about ready for another GTA game… bring it on.

  3. I hope its a sort of remake of San Andreas, my favourite GTA game.

    • San Andreas is my favourtie GTA as well, would love to see a return to LA and also Vegas. A remake though would be a bit boring in my opinion… Regardless of it’s location though, I’m sure the next GTA will be great, already looking forward to it!

    • I think they can do much more with the countrysides of San Andreas, so I hope the next GTA will do the same but with new cities

      • an expanded san andreas would be soooo good!

      • re s.andreas, I really should read comments b4 i post.
        (still engrossed with ep from liberty city, to keep me going)

    • Wow! for a possible list that is a pretty comprehensive outing of characters. Judging from the names and descriptions of characters though, the game is going to get back to doing what it did best on the PS2….IMO of course.

      • Yay! It definitely sounds like they have replaced the tongue into the cheek for this one!

    • interesting post thx nofi.

  5. Sounds a lot like a GTA game in the making. I would say now is the right time to announce a new GTA.

  6. Rich Roberts sounds like Jason Statham Haha

    • Interesting, i didn’t get that – I got Vinnie Jones from that!

  7. Kevin De Silva:
    18 – Albert’s fat, FPS playing gamer son. Smokes a lot of weed, has anxiety issues and a card for a bad back, very soft, very opinionated. Into making racist comments while playing online.

    Casting for this role should be done via direct advertisment at http://www.callofduty.com/forums

    • definately a stab at that sort of game.

      I’d personally like a return to a bit more of the relaxed GTA’s, with all the ridiculous cheat codes included as well, at least, dont get any more serious than GTA 4 did

      • Yeah, why so serious GTA 4?
        Remember running around in San Andreas beating people to death with a pink dildo, flying around in my jetpack and conquering Vegas with a tank. Epic!

      • Saints Row 2 nailed that this gen IMO

      • Yeah, so I’ve heard… Have never tried a Saints Row game though, maybe I should.

    • the thing is guys the game was a huge success so it worked.

  8. I actually think i’m a bit bored with GTA. I’m sure I’ll change my tune when I play this one but I’m just not excited about this yet.

  9. I think it’s about time we had a UK based gangster GTA

    “cheese it, it’s the rozzers”
    “shut it you slaaaaag! and pass me that shooter”

    • That would be pretty cool

      • we have the getaway for that.
        keep gta americanised i say, i hope it always will be.

  10. Wonder how much Microsoft will pay…
