We’ve finally heard something about GTA 5, It’s not much to go on though; if you thought that would stop the plentiful rumours, then not only were you wrong, but you were a little crazy for believing that ridiculous proposition in the first place. Rumours are sometimes true, so this is why we are still reporting the potential multiple playable characters and a LA backdrop for this upcoming game.
Kotaku, an online gaming culture site, has received information from sources “familiar with the game” that Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V will be set in LA and feature numerous playable characters. All of this backed up by “multiple other sources”
That’s all the info the sources divulged, however, it does imply that we’ll be returning the city we saw in GTA: San Andreas, Midnight Club LA and the very recent LA Noire. Multiple playable characters isn’t a new idea for Rockstar, either, with GTA 4, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony each letting players take control of a different main character within the same universe.
It isn’t a far fetched idea that Rockstar would include multiple characters, in fact I am half expecting them to follow the trend set in GTA 4; releasing several large expansions after the game has been out a little while. If it makes money, why stop?
Of course, the game could be set somewhere completely different. The Moon, for example (I’m all for it if there are a lot of cheese-moon related jokes and hover cars. Not forgetting the alien prostitutes). On the other hand, we could all have destroyed Rockstars marketing plans by guessing the direction straight from the bat.
