Hey guys have you currently saw the new video embed in the main page? Do you like it better than the old youtube tag like this "<,>"? -- ExtremoMania Talk To Me This Way 10:47, April 8, 2012 (UTC)

It looks nice. RusselNorthrop (Talk2Me--Contribs) 10:48, April 8, 2012 (UTC)

Some Content

I found some alleged 'Leaked' content

I doubt its legit, but i thought it was worthwhile.

That stuff is real BS. Whoever came up with that crap has just written stuff from

San Andreas, even though GTA V is from a different era. Bob Cutlass

If the game was like this, it would be a continuation of GTA: San Andreas and the game WILL NOT be "2012's Biggest Release" and WILL SUCK if it was just a next chapter of San Andreas. Tony 4-2-8-1-9-9-8 (talk) 18:30, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Incorrect Thumbnail

When one looks through the categories (or the "Read More" section) the current thumbnail is the this image instead of the image in the infobox. I would fix it but I don't know how (exactly how do you fix that?). DunewolfzBanner 19:04, April 26, 2012 (UTC)

The return of truck trailers.

A semi-truck pulling a trailer is also seen in the promo vid, so this feature which was added to San Andreas might be returning.

Fixed-wing aircraft

R* has confirmed it: fixed-wing aircraft are set to return, and they'll be flyable. From the R* website:

"[Liberty City] was simply too small for effective and enjoyable flying. It was the first time we made a high definition open world, and it was a massive amount of work to make something on that scale – we simply could not make an environment big enough for planes to work properly. Fear not, they are returning in what is our biggest open world game to date."

Start preparing your aviation crews, people. Protostealth (talk) 05:20, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

New Images

Today new screenshots of the game have been posted and I ask permission from the moderators to post both screenshots page along with the information on the news.Rok198 (talk) 02:28, July 14, 2012 (UTC)


I've seen that this page is locked so I'll just put it here. For the admins please add this reference (Analyst: GTA V Will Be 2012′s Biggest Game) on the trivia "According to Electronic Entertainment Design and Research analyst Jesse Divinich, GTA V would be 2012's biggest release."

The Protaganist and Name is U-N-K-N-O-W-N!! and Details are Too Reveiled

We don't know who the protaganist is or the name, but people keep on putting on this page that his name is "Albert De Sliva" or "Chico Vialpando". First of all, the name, Albert De Silva was made up on the GTAForums website on the GTA V Wishlist. The alledged "leaked content" from a R* employee fired from general misconduct confirming the protaganist's name must have checked GTAForums then decided to "write the the facts". This is also used on the Dual Shock Nexus website about GTA V's "leaked content" by a former R* employee named "Breandon Bax", but the details of the game are too detailed and too dumb and have horrible grammar.!/2012/04/massive-rumor-ex-rockstar-intern-leaks.html. "Chico Vialpando" was made up as well

This was all taken from GTA San Andreas with same GTA San Andreas characters and a GTA LCS character. If GTA V had Chico with the money, the cars, and the fame, would you start out the game with $99,999,999,999 dollars and have a Pegassi Infernus parked right in front of your house after you walk out of your house to start the first mission? Plus, this would be the next chapter of GTA: San Andreas and this game WILL NOT be "2012's Biggest Release" and WILL SUCK if you had to play GTA V with the same similarities as San Andreas.

So all I'm saying, leave the speculation off the the GTA V Page and talkpage saying that "this is real!" and DO NOT argue that this is real. Tony 4-2-8-1-9-9-8 (talk) 19:20, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

The daughter of a Rockstar Employee said the proganist's name will be Xavier. [1]

Nice try. Everybody says they work or have a family member working for Rockstar. That "leaked info" IS ALL REFORMULATED FROM GTA: SAN ANDREAS!!!!! LEAVE THE S-P-E-C-U-L-A-T-I-O-N OFF THIS PAGE!!!!!!!Tony (talk) 16:10, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

New Screenshots

The Screenshots that Rockstar Games released a few weeks ago, I think they should be added to the page, after all they are offical and not taken from the trailer. What do you think? T-888 (talk) 00:08, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

I CAN'T EDIT THIS PAGE! There's stuff on this page that I know is wrong.

Release date revealed

Rockstar Games has announced that Grand Theft Auto V will be released on September 17, 2013. It has been delayed from its previous launch window of Spring.

GTA V in a new era?

Hi people, why in GTA wikia here I see that GTA V is in a new era? I dont think so, it's in the same era as GTA IV because of the cars, and environment. Sure, there are 5 years of diference from 2008 and 2013, but its not in a new era. I mean, GTA I and GTA 2 are in the same era as in the 2D era games. And, what if in GTA V there are references about liberty city, exact city, and references to Niko Bellic in the game? GTA IV and GTA V can be in the same era.Can someone explain why people say its a new era? I totally disagree !! I want it changed...


There is a reason why GTA IV and V are not in the same era and have distinct eras. Here are the points:

  • For GTA 1 and 2: The eras do not represent graphics; 2D and 3D. They are storyline/continutity eras. Even Rockstar Games said they use the era term for their GTA franchise.
    • GTA 1 had expansions GTA: London 1969 and 1961. That's the GTA 1 Era
    • GTA 2; it is a single era.
  • The GTA III Era had GTA III, VC, SA, Advance, LCS, and VCS. Each game had references to these games in this era and characters; thier lives before and after (i.e. Kent Paul; Lance Vance; Toni Cipriani)
    • The GTA III Era never had numbers in their title. If it did, it would be was GTA III: Vice City, GTA III San Andreas, GTA III: Advance, GTA III: LCS, and GTA III: VCS, then it would indicate that they are in the same era. It was never GTA IV: Vice City, GTA V: SA, GTA VI: Advance, GTA VII: LCS and GTA VIII: VCS
  • The GTA IV era had HD game engine and that was new to the franchise. The GTA IV Era was GTA IV: The Lost and Damned and GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony (GTA: TBoGT; The IV was its beta name), and Chinatown Wars. Each game was a crossover(excluding CW, which took a year after IV); taking place at the same time, same city. Niko and Johnny and Luis crossed paths in missions. This era used the same city unlike the GTA III Era in which they used different cities. Chinatown Wars took place in Liberty City, but had totally new characters. Due to this, it wasn't GTA V: Chinatown Wars because the setting was in LC.
  • Now the GTA V Era, you got that one confused. If V was in the same era as IV, why hasn't Rockstar annouced it would be part in GTA IV's Episodes From Liberty City, even though it will be in Los Santos? Why did it take FIVE YEARS to make this "GTA IV Expansion"? Would the title be called, "Grand Theft Auto IV: V or GTA IV: Los Santos? No, it wouldn't because Rockstar would tell us that it was a GTA IV expansion. It would be in a DLC, just like EFLC and we would've got word about Niko, Johnny, and Luis returning.

GTA V will take place in a new era, with a different city, new characters and new missions. The GTA IV Characters be will be mentioned as an easter egg probably, but will never return in the game.

Tony (talk) 21:18, November 4, 2012 (UTC)

Tony, you are incorrect, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is not in a different 'era' than Grand Theft Auto: IV. The reason being, Iggy from Liberty Rock Radio mentions about moving to Vice City.

P.S. Sign your posts!

Look, I know its the stories, but Rockstar Games just confirmed GTA IV is in the GTA V era, as in same story life. So you're saying that in GTA IV, TBOGT, TLAD and CTW is one universe and GTA V is another one? or, Are you saying that Los Santos doesnt look like the one in the trailer in GTA V (Although theres no pics, just mentioned) What if in the game of GTA V, niko bellic or anybody else from Liberty City is mentioned, or liberty city appears on TV? What would be the explenation of that? Massionet51 (talk) 18:11, November 17, 2012 (UTC)Massionet51

Universes and eras are two different things when it comes to GTA.

There are currently 5 eras:

  • GTA 1 Era</li></li>
  • GTA 2 Era</li></li>
  • GTA III Era</li></li>
  • GTA IV Era</li></li>
  • GTA V Era

    While there are currently 3 universes:

    </li> </li>

  • 2D (GTA through GTA 2)</li></li>
  • 3D (GTA III through GTA Vice City Stories)</li></li>
  • HD (GTA IV through GTA V)

    Same images

    Hey I notcied that there are 2 same images on the page, so I'm asking if an admin can fix it. istalo November 4th, 2012

    I told you so

    a while back i posted a topic about how multiple reacurring characters in the first trailer could be pointing to multiple playable we have proof. :) Dark|Shadow|Sword 18:00, November 8, 2012 (UTC)

    GTA V not in a new universe, meaning no new ERA...

    It has been official comfirmed that GTA V will be in the same exact universe as GTA IV, so Niko Bellic for example, exists in GTA V time... Comfirmed in gameinformer and a video from GTA5videos official info, gameplay and locations. Massionet51 (talk) 12:08, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

    • Yup. I always tought so. But most of the people thought it's a new era... Anyway we need to rename all the articles now.Gtav v 48x48Dodo8 Talk 07:52, November 12, 2012 (UTC)
    • Guess what, youre right! Its true
      Making this official: GTA 1, 61, 69, 2 will be 2D era
      GTA 3, ADV, VC, SA, LCS, VCS will be 3D era
      GTA 4, TLAD, TBOGT, CTW, V will be HD era
    • I will state, that games with numbers, will be main, the rest will be spinoffs...

    Michael, Trevor, Franklin

    Since Rockstar confirmed that these three are the protaginists of GTA V then they should be listsed in the info box should they not? Matt Seay (talk) 09:25, November 12, 2012 (UTC)

    Will Grove Street Be In GTA V

    Can Someone Anwser My Question Will Grove Street Be In GTA V Rigby2000 (talk) 15:42, November 14, 2012 (UTC)Rigby2000Rigby2000 (talk) 15:42, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

    I wouldn't count on it, Rigby2000. There is a slight chance, but it has been about 18 years after Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. The gangs could have worn out by then, or taken over by new gangs. If anything, there will probably be gangs, just not Grove Street, Ballas, or Vagos. Also, it wouldn't be likely that they would be a major part of the story. Answering Machine (talk) 22:23, April 20, 2013 (UTC)

    Police agencies

    It seems that they are different police agencies in the game because of what I saw in screenshots. Some cars have red and blue lights. While others have all red lights and also some have completely blue lights. Also the ones with blue lights have different livery of course this could be just an FIB cars because it is very similar to real life FBI agent cars. What are your thoughts.

    True, the LSPD and the FIB, is sure to be in the game, but new agencies like the IAA and one in this picture, with a new patrol vehicle seems to be new. Massionet51 (talk) 13:02, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

    Leaked map?

    Yes yes I know what you're thinking, "oh no not another one!" but this looks pretty damn convincing.

    General Geers (talk) 09:57, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

    Fake, map design will look like the one in GTA IV (Im probably sure) and theres no blaine county... Massionet51 (talk) 12:15, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

    Why would it look like GTA IV? Los Santos is on the opposite side of the country and the devs want to make soemthing completely different to Liberty City. And how do you know there's no Blaine County? General Geers (talk) 05:48, November 19, 2012 (UTC)

    Spring Release Date

    It is very wrong to say GTA5 is out in Spring of every major country - I live in Aus and the posters and flyers in JB Hi-Fi and EB Games say Autum release, which is America's Spring, so I think that should be changed for each country's season, not just slapping 'Spring' on them all when an Australian Spring is between September and November and why would Rockstar wait several months to realease in AUS when Australia is a major country. JUst saying =] (Harlan1500 (talk) 10:11, December 11, 2012 (UTC))

    Rockstar Games has delayed it to September 17, 2013.

    Dan Houser interview


    In an interview on Game Informer, writer and producer Dan Houser had this to say to the magazine:

    "Just at the conceptual level, the idea was three separate stories that you play in one game. The next bit was, let’s not have the stories intersect once or twice but have them completely interwoven. It felt like it was going to be a real narrative strength: you get to play the protagonist and the antagonist in the same story."

    So that would have to mean either Trevor, Michael or Franklin is actually both the protagonist and the antagonist. Given the fact that he mentioned it in an interview, it can't really be a huge spoiler. Maybe it's not a spoiler at all, and we'll find it out in the first mission. Personally, it doesn't affect me, it just gets me hyped up even more for the game. I was going to put it in the article, but since I know a few people are going to contemplate it as a big spoiler, I wanted to see if it could in put into the article. Ryder 2012 (talk) 18:48, December 28, 2012 (UTC)

    All GTA protagonists are known as "anti-heroes" which mean they're good and bad at the same time instead of being called criminals. It might be a hint that one of the protags is a good guy and the other is a bad guy. Michael seems to be the good guy, according to the second trailer, and Trevor could be the bad guy and possibly the good guy for him working with Michael; an anti-hero.

    San Diego in Grand Theft Auto V?

    Let me get this straight, will Grand Theft Auto V feature a fictional version of San Diego? Los Puerta? Or is it still unsure? JC · Talk · Contributions 08:35, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

    No, it will feature Los Santos and its surrounding countryside. Look up here and here before you start asking speculated questions.

    Release Date ?

    Hey ! I found something here. According to, the date is March 26, 2013. Do you think it is the true ? Milady Junky 15:34, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

    It's probably a placeholder so people can figure out the "release date" and can pre-order it. They've done this even when GTA V was announced last year; alot of retailers put a spring month with a date and a 2012 or a 2013 year release date.
