GTA V specifics remain elusive

If you read the recent GTA 5 leak details and assumed that they were legit, we have some more light to shed on this for you. As most of you are aware, those leaked detailed were apparently based off the Game Informer reveal on November 8, but we’ve since heard from one of their editors, that the information is completely bogus.

Head back to our initial report here if you didn’t catch the leak the first time around. Basically a forum member had posted a collection of new information about the game, stating that you would be playing as 42 year old Albert De Silva and also a younger man called Dougie Vejo.

While the information may have seemed accurate at first glance, the authenticity of the details has now been put into major doubt. Matt Bertz from Game Informer has put the record straight on his Twitter account, to say that the information is all fake – on numerous occasions.

We will obviously find out the answer for ourselves on Thursday when the Game Informer feature goes up, but some skeptics have also said that Game Informer has to deny the details at all costs anyway, so that they don’t get in trouble with Rockstar over potential Game Informer issues reaching some consumers early.

It now means that information such as ‘Grove street makes a return’ is now being questioned by fans once again, although we do hope that the leak which references three mini games (golf, surfing and tennis) remains true, as GTA mini games have become accustomed to the series now – the more the better we say.

Are you disappointed that another Grand Theft Auto 5 leak has been shot down? Read through the list of leaked items here and let us know which ones you really hoped would be true. Do you think there is any chance that it still could be legit information, despite Game Informer’s claims that it isn’t?
