GTA V location rumors pre E3 2011

By Updated on

There have been quite a lot of rumors and speculation regarding Rockstar Games’ highly anticipated GTA V (GTA 5) game over the past few months, including the confusion as to when the game will actually be released. Now it appears that more rumors have surfaced ahead of the E3 2011 event.

According to Andy Robinson over at computerandvideogames.com, retailers have begun listing the new Grand Theft Auto game along with some others – including the Resident Evil 6 title – for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which fits in with rumors suggesting that GTA 5 would be revealed at E3 2011.

Rumors are suggesting that the Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA V) game will be set in real-world Los Angeles, and have actual named landmarks filling the streets. Besides a number of job ads posted last year for what sounded like GTA V, analysts have also suggested that the game is well into development.

Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter said last year that he believed that the next installment in the Grand Theft Auto franchise to be launched by the fourth quarter of 2012 at the latest. What do you think about the possibility of the GTA V game being set in Los Angeles?

    I want it to be modern day times, 80s is a VC thing only and it seems to only be old people who want the 80s back anyway, I think LA should be modern times :)

    Should be GTA: San Andreas 2. Maybe one of the main characters in GTA: SAs son, or even a relative of CJ ;o

    Seems pretty unlikely considering they just released L.A. Noire which is set in real world Los Angeles.

    The release date is actually January 17, 2012, set in San Francisco in 1981, and the game begins with an earthquake survival in the aftermath.  The lead character (not kidding) is named “Bertha Venation” who has an apartment at the top of Lombard Street (google it). By day Bertha is “Bert” (his real name), and is a mechanic.  But no one knows his night occupation as a performer in The Castro District.  Bertha is a drug addict, and loses his real job, and his night job becomes a bit more debt ridden.  So he steals, kills and does tricks to survive, and is stuck under a lifetime contract by a deranged boss named “Pansey”.  I know it will be in 3D, and the first interactive video game with explicit sex, and you can (try to) rape anyone you want.  You also spend most of your time trying not to get AIDS.  That’s all I know so far.

    Where it is isn’t that important, except they need to go somewhere new, If you like Vice city then go play GTA Vice City. The key to a good GTA is that it needs to have a good plot with good characters. That’s what made GTA IV great, E3 better produce some info(I actually get to go this year, though it hasn’t officially started yet) If we don’t get any info at E3, I’m going to be pissed.

    PS. Why do we have to wait for GTA V when their putting out another Saints Row already, I played that game for maybe an hour before I decided it was crap. Too much gang crap, having to spray graffitti on your “turf” that’s the stupidest crap in the world. I would like to think GTA has become more sophisticated and I hope that they bring Lazlo back yet again. in GTA IV he was on Integrity 2.0. They didn’t have as much of him in GTA IV as they did in earlier games but he was still good I haven’t played it yet but I have purchased it, LA Noire, that is. and I hope that GTA V is on 4 discs, allotta content that way
