GTA III's era (III, VC, SA) is a different continuity from GTA IV's era (IV, V), so I'm not expecting anyone from that era to appear on this game.

A supposed (disgruntled?) Rockstar employee posted a small blurry image of what they claim to be GTA5's map:

So, what's after Vinewood? A wall?

The usual GTA trick of a blown up bridge/tunnel perhaps? Possibly with some mountains thrown in for good measure.

That would work if there were no planes, but we see one in the trailer coming from behind Vinewood.

What happens when you try to fly outside the map in a chopper in GTA4? Don't recall I ever tried. I imagine it would be handled the same way.

I guess we'll know one way or the other in just a few days.
Confirmed @ 0:32 in the trailer. So this is essentially GTA: San Andreas 2.

I thought there already was a london 1969? True or not, I'd perhaps like to see somewhere different as well.

Doubtful it will be a sequel of VC. Vice City left off, you just killed Sonny Forelli and his gang from Liberty City, it's mid 1986. You pretty much own Vice City now.

Six years later, the lovable, nervous, crack-headded coke sniffing, Jew-Bagel (an affectionate term I use for my jewish family members and frieends irl ) Lawyer Ken Rosenberg has been ousted by Vercetti, has come to san andreas, gone through rehab, and teamed up with protagonist Carl Johnson. Even has a flashback to vice city in one mission.

It is doubtful Tommy is still alive, as he probably did not give up his life of crime. If he is still alive, he was about 35 in 1986...fast forward to ~2007 when GTA 4 approximately took place and Tommy would be around 56 years old by then and probably have a mammoth beer gut on his trim frame, be sluggish as all hell and not nearly as resilient...

The only hint about VC is Jimmy Peggorino's mission where you had to intercept boats with drugs from vice city iirc.

The Tommy thing probably needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but assuming for a moment that it is him, it's worth keeping in mind that it has been about 25 years since the events of Vice City (assuming GTA5 is set in/around the current day, which it would appear to be). Thus, any kids he would have may well be old enough to be independent.
Could it be Tommy's son?

Quote:
On a semi-related note, it would be nigh on 20 years since the events of San Andreas. Presumably CJ will make some sort of cameo in his old stomping grounds. He is likely a family man as well by this point (assuming he is still alive and not in prison).
Not so sure about that either. You'll see why I say that......

Ahem...does anyone remember this R.I.P. grafitti in the first apartment of GTA 4? Right click and view image, best on a white background...


Claude from GTA3, Tommy, Carl, Tony C., Victor Vance, umm yeah.

Quote:
Leaving that aside for a moment, it would make him around 50-ish one would assume. I don't see that as a big deal. The trailer indicated someone vaguely middle aged, so that would fit (and is one reason why people jumped onto the Tommy bandwagon).
Nah I'd say it sounded like a guy something more like mid-late 30 ish, maybe 40s. I heard some rumor Peggorino was "Tommy" but that just doesn't fit to be honest.

A nod no doubt.

Here's remarkably accurate side-by-side of the GTA5 trailer with a version done in San Andreas:

YouTube Video

And for those that want just the SA trailer by itself:

I love some of the crazy things in the SA version, like multi-car pileups, dodgy player animations, etc. That's the real GTA we all know and love. Not the sanitised scripted version Rockstar presented.

^^^If it makes you feel any better, many people of the GTA modding community who have invested quite a bit in the GTA3 era games that probably love you for saying that...and since you yourself are a modder, that would endear you to them all the more.
(If you have not tried out their tools and such, give it a whirl.)

Yeah I'm well aware of the GTA mod scene and have used them since the GTA3 days.
