GTA 5's main character is an 'East Coast gangster'

More information on Grand Theft Auto 5 has been revealed, courtesy of this week's issue of Shortlist.

According to the magazine, GTA 5's protagonist is an "East Coast gangster" who has moved to Los Santos "for a fresh start".

"But, as in The Godfather Part III," the magazine continues, "just as he thought he was out, they pulled him back in." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Honestly, I'd rather have the old guy than this guy. If it's true.

I thought it was an average family man that turned to crime because of the recession?

You have been watching way too much Breaking Bad :)

This game could have a million features but one feature that will make it an instant buy for me is if the bring back the large maps from San Andres...I want to tak road trips and explore the wilderness.

I really do hope the game is as large as san andreas i spent hours upon hours searching for things in that game and i would love to do it with this one.

This is what the sourced article says:

"The rumour of multiple playable characters remains unconfirmed. The voiceover is delivered by one person, a presumably middle-aged man (possibly pictured bottom left) talking about moving to the West Coast to escape a life of crime. Although there’s little doubt that, just like Michael Corleone, he gets pulled back in. But unlike most GTA trailers, there isn’t one clear protagonist."

What the article says:

"But, as in The Godfather Part III," the magazine continues, "just as he thought he was out, they pulled him back in."


BTW, the article on ShortList is old and covers the original debut trailer. We already know about what happened in that trailer. Why is this article reporting it now, and why are we talking about something we've known for a year?

At the bottom of the source article is says:

"GTA V will be released in 2012"

It appears David Scammell didn't get the memo.

It doesn't change the fact the news is over a year old.

As long as the story plays out well and we get a feel for the character it will be great.

Ehh...then why not play San Andreas. With all the diffrent types of HUMANS in the world were already going gangster again? Wish we could just have a guy who was released from a psych' ward, and hated his job at CluckenBell. and he just snapps. mix the char of Silent Hill Homecoming with Postal.

We'll never know what is true until Gameinformer comes out.
