Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V has been announced! Here's what we know:

....

Okay, so no-one actually knows anything about GTAV, but that doesn't stop us from speculating wildly, so let's make up some crazy ideas:

  • GTAV: Concrete Misery continues the gritty realism of GTA4, and will be set in a pastiche of Baltimore in an obvious parody of The Wire.
  • GTAV: Foiled Again will return to the cartoonish roots of Vice City, and will see you play as a costumed supervillain. Reaching the highest wanted level will get you hunted down by Batman.
  • GTAV: Modern Warfare will be set in a middle eastern conflict. You play a corrupt soldier trying to ransack the town he is supposed to be liberating.
  • GTAV: Grand Theft Stagecoach will be set in the past, you play Jack the Ripper in Victorian London.
  • GTAV: Milton Keynes will be set in Milton Keynes. It will be as boring as that sounds.
  • GTAV: IN SPACE will be set IN SPACE.
  • GTAV: Retro City will be an isometric turn based strategy game. Fans will be outraged.
