You Will Get to See a Grand Theft Auto V Trailer In VIII Days

I would love for it to be set in Vice City.

@LifeByDegrees: The font, colour and style (with the elaborate banner and such behind the word five) much more closely resembles English currency, in my opinion. But there's so little to go on, it's pointless to argue about at this point, it's a font and style used by almost every single English speaking country. I'd just like to see something outside of the US for a change.

Can we know start guessing where the game will be set in?I bet on San Andreas or their version of Washington D.C.

#54 Posted by kingzetta (4307 posts) -

is it going to suck as much as 4 did?

#55 Posted by HydraHam (1338 posts) -

Please god don't be in San Andreas or Vice City, i want a new setting.

#56 Posted by Vigorousjammer (2503 posts) -

this is so messed up... the US 5 dollar bill does NOT have a roman numeral on it... it's got an actual number 5, the hell is going on with that logo?

#57 Posted by Davvyk (694 posts) -

I get a very San Andreas vibe from the logo. I hope I'm wrong. I just hope they take the franchise in a new direction and push the boundaries again like 4 did.

Game will be set in Washington. This I know because my uncle works at Rockstar.

#59 Posted by Twinblade34 (118 posts) -

I have no idea why all the hate on 4, I love every single GTA game and played through everyone of them.

Will definitely play 5.

The splash page has taken over the entire Rockstar site, so it must be good.

#61 Posted by readymix (175 posts) -

I'm guessing present day Los Angeles (Los Santos). Less emphases on all the goofiness from San Andres and more on how the cities evolved since the 90s. They could even include San Fierro and Las Venturas.

#62 Edited by Berkie (132 posts) -

D.C. could be great, but I still feel like Vice City could be represented better with that logo. Here's my theory. Think about VC, that game was all about becoming a kingpin, and "V" not only represents the Roman numeral, but also being the first letter of Vice. The fact that there's so much care put into the "V" makes me feel like it means more than just "Hey, this is part 5", after all, no other numbered GTA games had special treatment of the logo art. And why have a "V" AND the word "FIVE" ? We all know what a Roman numeral looks like... I think it's the letter v, and not a Roman numeral at all. Besides, 5 USD has no Roman numerals on the bill.

No one logo should have all that power...

The game will take place in the 21th century and you will play as a schizoid man.

Also, it will be set inside Kanye West.

I would like this game now

#64 Posted by TheAdmin (713 posts) -

I'm going to give a guess that we're headed to Washington DC.

#65 Posted by FilipHolm (667 posts) -

I was so excited when I saw this today! Me and a friend printed out copies of that logo and handed them out randomly on the street in the middle of town. A memorable day :D

#66 Posted by enemymouse (333 posts) -

Calling it now, there will be a large meth subplot.

#67 Posted by Zaxex (586 posts) -

Poorly kept industry secret or no, I had no idea we would be seeing anything GTA V any time soon; and personally I'm really excited to see what they have in store.

#68 Posted by bretthancock (778 posts) -

Never finished GTA4 but the characters still leave a lasting impression, stoked for this one.

#69 Posted by Mystyr_E (1190 posts) -

Not looking forward to it, especially if they're gonna make a Vice City/San Andreas-like setting like 4 did with Liberty City. If they go back to the craziness of the PS2 games, I'll cave but other than that, I'll use Saints Row the Third

#70 Posted by JayHayabusa (149 posts) -

Would love for it to be set in San Andreas. That was my favorite setting of all the GTA games. May be better if they focused it a bit and set it in the equivalent of Los Angeles and not the whole state.

#71 Edited by greennoodles (404 posts) -

Being a huge GTA fan I am thrilled to hear that they are making a fifth GTA game. So much so that I am going to spend my day off finally beating BOGT. For the people that haven't been following along, this game will almost certainly be taking place in SA because of some casting calls that went out a while ago.

IT BETTER HAVE PARACHUTES, Rockstar.

#76 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

I want to get excited, but then I remembered that I must contain my excitement after the disappointment that was Grand Theft Auto IV. I know, I know, I won't belabor the point, I'm just asking other people who feel the same to keep that in mind. Also, I like that V.

Sometimes I like to allow myself to become a kid again

#78 Edited by kingzetta (4307 posts) -

I'd be more excited if every other open world game, that's not named GTA wasn't a 1000 times better than any GTA game.

Excited! I looooved GTAIV.

#83 Edited by gorkamorkaorka (442 posts) -

People who say GTAIV isn't as good as San Andreas are fucking lunatics.

Edit: Also, yay new game. MY PREDICTION: It will come out on the Wii U.

#84 Posted by Thor_Molecules (732 posts) -

I still haven't finished GTAIV, since the story bored me to tears a few missions in.

Might actually sit down and finish that sucker now. I really hope they take the good things from GTA:VC and GTA:SA this time.

#85 Posted by Rebirth1337 (795 posts) -

I've been to DC and idk if that would make a fun place to play around in.

#87 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Hope this one is actually fun to play. Last generation GTA games were so much more fun.

The release date for the trailer is 1102 and in GTA vice city the player has a safehouse called 1102 Washington Street.

also, who was the punk arguing that the next two GTAs wouldn't have numbers in their titles? Yeah. Zing.

They didn't if you count The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony as the next two GTAs, which I'm kind of inclined to do. They weren't as big, but it was the same idea as the two games after GTA III. Same engine, different characters and story.

Between the way the green looks in the roman numeral and the scroll spelled out five, I'd say it has something to do with money. As in the boatloads Rockstar will make with this game. Seriously though, I) instantly thought "five dollar bill" when I saw that.

Also, new GTA. Sweet.

@Rebirth1337: I've been living in DC for 7 years, it really is a city of contrasts (very wealthy upper NW DC, poverty stricken SE DC across the Anacostia and very distinct neighborhoods between), so that could lend itself well if indeed DC is the setting.

#90 Posted by TheKing (835 posts) -

In my opinion GTA IV is the best game this gen. So I can't wait to see what this is.

#91 Posted by Little_Socrates (5677 posts) -

Now you have set me up to dislike whatever trailer is released if it does not contain a Kanye West song.

That said, Otis would also be a great track for a GTA trailer.

#92 Posted by kmg90 (420 posts) -

I know I see a lot of comments about Alex's ability to come up with very creative article titles and content but this probably my favorite... Well done sir!

#93 Posted by ffdthree (200 posts) -

I want an Irish Protagonist

#94 Posted by roughplague (131 posts) -

From the green of the V and the old school bond around it in my opinion suggests Ireland (the royal bond strongly suggesting an alcolic beverage which also is a big feature in Ireland)
Maybe a football hooligans in ireland, irish mafia? we don't know, I'll be interested in seeing what the trailer brings it out to be

#95 Posted by AlKusanagi (920 posts) -

Words cannot express my unenthusiasm. Oh wait, there's one: "Meh..."

Seriously, I've tried all the GTA games and given up with a bad taste in my mouth every time. Maybe I just don't "get it." I liked Red Dead, though.

#96 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Saints row is fun in co-op but it's no gta, the city, physics and graphics all seem like a up res PS2 game, now gta iv my favourite game of all time (burnout paradise no2) is a step up the city is still the most impressive thing to come out of this generation from its weather, to it's people, to the hours of hours of radio stations, I remember at about 6 in the morning after unlocking the 2nd island listening to the journey driving down times square while a lightning storm was happening and just driving and being so entertained changing the station and kayne west flashing lights came on, at that moment I knew this was a watermark of gaming.

#97 Posted by sionweeks (649 posts) -

I think they'll drop the V when the trailer comes out and it'll say GTA Vice City. The 5 represents money to me and it just makes me think of Vice City. If it's Vice City I will jizz. That game has to be my favourite GTA game. I haven't been this hyped for a trailer in ages, and I remember Gamespot counting down the minutes to the GTA IV trailer and no one could watch it because the servers were overloaded.

Good times :)

#98 Posted by Rongaryen (275 posts) -

It's going to have 5 player co-op and the city will have 5 districts or areas.

#99 Posted by Ninja_Welshman (485 posts) -

Interesting, verrrry interesting. Thinking i'm ready for a new GTA game.
