DualShock Nexus: "We recently caught wind of a massive Grand Theft Auto V rumor and it's almost too good to be true."
That was a lot of text. I hope dude is prepared to never work in the industry. He gave up way too much info on himself, someone at R* could easily identify him. Letting loose a bunch of info would certainly hurt his chances at other big dev's. Loose lips sink ships. Assuming it's true of course, but not certain on that at all.
If this is real this guy could get into some deep legal shit with Rockstar for leaking this stuff. Which is why I don't think its true. Then again I don't really think any "leaked info" for GTA V is real, not atleast till we learn a little more about the game officially from rockstar.
It can't be real. I find it incredibly difficult to believe it's not just a teenager sat in his room trying to get as many hits as possible on his website, because of all the spelling and grammar errors.
and if it is real this guy is an idiot. He is the reason why this industry is turning into a rumour mill. I miss the days when you didnt get spoilers thrown at you, and almost every "leaked" info was rather a SURPRISE when you played the game. This is stupid.
In case it is indeed real can someone let me know if it contains spoilers before I read thanks (:
SMILEY IS SUSPICIOUS!
Dude gave way too much personal info. Seems legit though because of that, but for his own sake should have just gave the info and not what he is studying or worked as etc. Some of the stuff sounds sweet though; Interactive convertible tops, Interactive headlights, Heaps of vehicles BMX IS BACK!!! Flyable passenger planes and Jets. I cant wait!!!!
Hey guys, just so you know, this "leak" was copy-pasted directly from a post on the GTA Forums. It's more than likely fake.
That's why this is hard to believe. Is he that stupid? You don't give out details like that and expect to get a job anywhere. If he did do it he's dumb.
I can't read it, the text has been blocked! God dammit
this is an intentional leak who's purpose is to start the hype train and nothing more.
the whole full sail intern angle sounded like a cover.. I mean who would be so dumb to basically identify yourself before you divulge huge secrets about a game in development?
If this is real I'll kill myself. Especially the Vice City part. My body is not ready.
Oh come-the-fuck on. This obviously isn't true; it's obviously an attempt to generate massive hits through subterfuge - and it worked. Over 1000 degrees? You know, it's like school-yard bullies: this problem will likely go away if everyone can just find the intestinal fortitude to ignore it. Stop reinforcing garbage.
How are we to know it's fake if we don't look at it at least?
I like the cllassic rumor start: Ex eploye leaks stuff.
Yeah, who the hell would leak info and leave their name? Nobody unless they're stupid. This is more than likely fake. But damn, with what he said, I wish it wasn't.
I'll need a time machine to have enough time to play all these games
They will never exist, otherwise someone would have come back to current time from the future and be all "guys look at my cool time machine" I been watching too many movies.
So you're saying I won't go back in time if I spin around really fast D:
not necessarily true if you consider the concept of a parallel universe. There is still hope for you Jio :) (albeit you wouldn't even realise within this universe that you did in fact have the time to play those games xD)
What the hell is a jiggawatt?!
Yup you have been watching too many movies. You should have been reading up on the subject instead. It is possible in theory to travel into the future without violating the laws of physics. The same can't be said about traveling to the past, so you can't make more time for yourself to play games or go back in time to show off your cool time machine.
"Yup you have been watching too many movies. You should have been reading up on the subject instead." nah, watching movies is much more fun.
Wow he's a ****ing graphic designer at Full Sail, which is one of the best schools in the U.S for going into the gaming industry and decides to do something this stupid?! I have a feeling this is fake.
Pretty sure USC is the best.
funny thing is rockstar north (who make the GTA series) are based in the UK, so how the fuck could this guy get these details if he lives in the U.S?
They are located in UK and therefore they should at least come out with a GTA located in the UK itself.
GTA London came out in the 90s.
Actually, Full Sail is kind of a joke. I've known several people who have gone there and came out having a lot of trouble finding jobs because they just were not taught what employers looking for from a graphic designer. The best game school in the U.S. that isn't part of university would probably be DigiPen. If this guy is for real, then he just committed career suicide. Something, that stuck me as off was how he spelled some words in a UK english spelling. Like I saw words like "customize" as "customise" several times. Pretty odd for a guy who claims to be originally from Miami.
Why does he feel the need to tell us his life story? I couldn't care less. EDIT: Also, this sounds a bit too good to be true. Just about everything I would anticipate is rumoured here. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
Red Dead Rebellion? Im liking the sound of that.
I thought RedDead Revolution was cooler but F**K I hope its true, Bully and RD are 2 of my favourite games ever.
I agree, both Red Dead and Bully are much more quality franchises than GTA to me. Also, I think Red Dead Reckoning would have been great also, but KoA nabbed that one.
Yea, I could give a damn about GTA, I want some details on Red Dead Rebellion!
Seems like its all been censored now? On my phone anyway it seems like it
Blocked on my phone too
I'm so hyped now, LOL.
Considering Rockstar are masters at keeping details under wraps and not letting things out the bag so to speak I believe this to be a load of s****... As far back as I can remember a lot of stuff within there games took a fair while to emerge after everyone could actually play them.. which makes the game even better as you know you can explore and find something crazy without having it spoiled by Internet hearsay and spoilers .
Would be cool if true, bully 2 (yes please). Also adrenaline pills that make time slow down, seems like that would be some Max Payne 3 influence there. Will probably turn out fake - but if I hear Rockstar or a magazine mention someone called Adrian then I will be back here.
Can someone paste the text here? All I'm seeing is a wall of white on my phone.
Lol @ disagrees: I think I know what I see on my own phone...
FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP
How surprising people getting hyped over a rumor
No Manhunt 3? Too bad. Damn ESRB has to ruin everything.
yea well n4g is known racists just ask hip hop gamer they did him foul so fuck you n4g
Either: A) It's true and this guy is gonna get into a whole heap of trouble. or B) He's lying through his teeth but made it pretty damn convincing.
Stopped reading at "Rockstar has had GTA V in production since late 2008 and is close to completion. I'd say about 87% done" Fake article is fake.
Yeah the "87%" done got my eyebrow up too. Why 87% and not just 85 or 90% like any normal guy would say.
Not buying it. Rockstar are so very, very careful about what they show and don't show. Some 'intern' there for 12 months would not be given info like this. Plus he gives his full information, he'd neevr find work anywhere again because he's just leak everything developers want to secret.
As soon as he learns proper grammar and spelling, get back to me.
That ramble to me was like this: Blah, blah, blah, blah, Red Dead Rebellion, blah, blah, blah, blah...I hope that part's true.
If this is real, this guy is an idiot. If Rockstar see this as accurate, then they will never get another intern again. Thanks buddy, for screwing the future of many university students that would have gave a limb off their body to do the same thing (And keep it under raps).
God Red Dead 3 would be amazing :) <Spoilers> Shame John got killed off, I was really hoping they would of done another DLC where the Government would of come earlier for John when he's away and they kill Jack and Abby instead making John go out looking for revenge then at the end him and Bonnie ended up closer. I mean his death was stupid aswell, how the hell would he know 100% that if he gave him self up the government would of left Abby and Jack alone, they could of killed them after they dealt with John, I wish there was two endings so he could of survived. I just hope to god we don't play as Jack in the next game As for GTAV Why the hell is it just Los Santos I thought this time instead of traveling up the map towards Los Venturas they would make Los Santos the top map and you would go down showing off two new cities. I hope the map is big though, I want at least a Just Cause 2 map in terms of size.
gotta love Rockstar <3
Bullshit. I worked on San Andreas at Rockstar North. That is the branch of Rockstar that makes every main GTA game and it is located in Edinburgh, Scotland. Some work was outsourced to other rockstar studios but it was mostly QA stuff. They wouldn't let him in the building without signing an NDA, nevermind work there. The standard NDA I signed when going for my interview and then working prevents you from talking about anything you see there to anyone but family and very close friends for 6 months AFTER release of any product you are a part of. The spelling and grammar in his post leave a lot to be desired, I doubt Rockstar would hire anyone for an office assistant internship that is that bad. Nice try though.
Man I wanted Cesar Vialpando as the main character or Tommy Vercetty not this fool adrian.
Holy crap, if this is true i just got alot more excited, especially the drug trafficking minigames, that was awesome on the ds game
Whether this is true or not. This game will the shit
totally ludicrous. Id sooner believe the Warren Comission's take on JFK's assassination.
Man, it'd be pretty amazing if all this were true. If all that stuff isn't actually in the game, Rockstar have some work to do!
THIS IS AWESOME BULLY 2! BULLY WAS MY FAVORITE PS2 GAME FROM R* CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS ONE!!!
Rockstar created this
What stood out to me was the part about them working on another Vice city game. I dont see them making another GTA for this generation and if they were working on a next gen GTA he would have definitely included that info.
Honestly, if this is true, I'm more excited about Red Dead Rebellion than GTA V.
I'm sorry... but Rockstar is one company who I wait for when it comes to confirmation of future releases, so I don't even bother with the rumors. When the game is ready to be announced, they'll announce it.
Um I'm pretty sure its call Full Sail University not "Acadamy" how could he get his own school wrong?
Good bye industry career, lol.
Their source is a liar who is merely repeating recent rumors. Allow me to prove my point. The sequel to Red Dead was hinted by recent hirings at R* San Diego Bully 2 was actually hinted at by another R* employee. The details about the map are just a combination of recent rumors, most of which came about after the leak of the game map. Many of the details he claims about certain areas and size can easily be seen merely by looking at the map. But here's the main reason why this guy is a liar. No one who works for R* or even gets close to that company does so without signing an NDA. If you break your NDA you can pretty much expect that you will never work in the gaming industry again. You will be black balled. Permanently. Its easy to track the source of such rumors as development on R* games is often divided into departments, with one department not having any clue as to the activity of the other departments.
