Really happy about this. Was instantly trying to pick apart all the elements of the logo to try and pilfer information / speculation. I suspect, as hinted above, that money is going to be a BIG factor.

So is this GTA V still or GTA Five... hmmm.... seems strange to use both the Roman numeral and the word.

I'd say V, and that the 'five' was the monetary reference. We might get a bit more from the trailer.

Yes at last. Rockstar took time. Now we just need to see how close we are. Time for a forum revamp. If you make GTA V section then I would like to be the area moderator there.

Chris 25th October, 2011 @ 13:30 - Permalink
Oh yeah we're definitely still saying GTA V. The money reference is interesting though and here's my take on it:

The 'FIVE' font is the same used on various currencies around the world, the American and British in particular.
The green colour used on the V is a little weird, almost like a gang colour, but American money is green, so it's probably related to that.
Given the current economic climate, this might suggest money plays a very big factor in the game and/or it is set in present day around the global recession.

Up to everyone actually. You guys keep posting about GTA V and your ideas, thoughts, questions etc. then we can get some good discussions around the place, right?

@Jimmy: No. Not yet anyway. In case you hadn't noticed we now have all the GTA games in one simple section. The GTA V itself will only expand once the game is released. All discussion beforehand is pre-release. Just rumour, speculation and some facts. Only when it's released will we have more forums for Guides/Help, Multiplayer, Modding etc.

GTA V-v-v-vice City? Haha I'm just kidding but seriously I'm clueless on what to expect besides the 'money' aspect everyone has been mentioning. Maybe it's also a way to address Saints Row:The Third coming out, just to emphasize the fact that Five>Three and people should save their MONEY for the better game :P Anyways, I can't wait for next week.

Well it looks like most of us agree on the money theme. As for location, to be honest we're just gonna have to wait for the trailer, there's too many possibilities really.

My initial thought after thinking the money theme was Las Vegas (Las Venturas), as in, all the casinos etc. with gambling and building up an empire etc. with said money.

Firstly, please stop quoting stuff like this without putting a link or something.
Secondly, C&VG always post rumours like this as fact, or they say it's a rumour but spin it as fact. Not saying it's not true, but I wouldn't go believing things like that just yet...

Wait.... How the HELL do you get "Ireland" to be the ONLY thing the design could point to? Your SRIII avatar points to old European royalty playing a big part in SRIII, but we know nothing of the such would ever happen. Quit being a dick. Why are you even on this board if all you want to do is jack it to how much better SR is than GTA?

I'm curious, it was JUST announced, and there's already a trailer on the way? How long have they been working on it? How much have they got done? How much more do they have to go? What all do we think will be in the trailer?

And what is the deal with the money style logo.....

Aha, but GTA's protagonists have never really been very well -fortuned now, have they? And by the looks of the photo that just went up on his flickr, it's more that a little bit coincidental - I mean to say, I don't think it's an intentional piece of design on their end.

As for the date thing, meh. Mass market appeal I guess.

But the content shouldn't be the decider, it should be either audience or producer, and apart from San Andreas, the audience is not majority American.

But, I am venting. I get quite annoyed by it sometimes.

cant blame them since most of the americans do social networking and go on blind dates they dont have the time to review GTA games....well..

anyway about the date like Llama said its got a stylish look 11.02.11

I think the point was more the fact it's a card, which suggests gambling, which in turn points to Las Venturas as being the location.

It's a nice find anyway, 7 days left to wait until we find out I guess.


And about the date, I must admit I was a little thrown by it at first. I realised a second after that it was in the American format. It is strange though because America is one of the only countries in the world that writes it like. You'd think R* would go for something internationally recognised and unambiguous, "2nd November, 2011" for example.

Wow, right on. Just when I thought that nothing else could be hinted by the title design of the game. And as stupid as this sounds, as long as we're sticking to the Las Venturas/gambling hints, maybe the trailer release date is a reference to getting 'snake eyes' ( http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Snake_eyes ) when gambling with dice: 11 (1 and 1) 02 (2 pairs of snakes eyes) 11 (1 and 1).

By the way, I've been gone way too long. How do I do post a link with my own selected title as opposed to the full URL. Like if I wanted that Wikipedia link up there to be 'snake eyes' instead of the full URL. I tried searching through the BB Codes and the Link button but couldn't figure it out. :(

Well someone mentioned Ireland eariler, so on that subject why not Packie McReary. We did see him entering the airport at the end of BoGTY.

Also some other rumours that are out are saying that the city will be Los Angeles.http://www.rockstari...-says-Kotaku/88

I would rather V be a remake of San Andreas with larger cities (Los Santos was fine, but Las Venturas & San Fiero were not up to par imo) and enough countryside for planes, ect. Regardless if it will be be Vice ,San Andreas or a new city I'm just looking forward the teaser next week.

R* North is based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Great Britain, The United Kingdom.

Most of the staff are from Britain, might be a few from the continent too.
The games, except for '61 and '69, are set in the States, but are not made there.

True as both of your posts are, Rockstar does now, not just consist of Rockstar North, they are a multinational company with branches in San Diego, USA. Yes Sam and Dan Houser are Scottish and yes the did study at Dundee University, but at this point you can't really put a nationality on Rockstar as a company.

According to Wikipedia, Rockstar Games' HQ is in New York. But they have branches in many places of the world, such as Tokyo (R* Japan), UK (R* Leeds, North, Lincoln and London), Canada (R* Toronto and Vancouver), and the US itself (R* San Diego). Plus, they formerly had a studio in Austria (R* Vienna), but it was closed down in 2006.

if you get the logic you will see that the GTA V has a dollar bill. The dollar being the national currency of the U.S is made by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing whose HQ's are at Washington D.C and since the U.S mint is also located here so...it might be a possibility

I hope, most of all, that the game is set in 'Vice City', if not a 'Carcer City' would be cool, but unlikley.
I do like the idea of a single city, as opposed to the multi city/state style of San Andreas. I hope if based on an 'SA' city that its San Fierro, I'm open to the idea of Las Venturas.
But I hope it's not 'Los Santos' or an LA based city. 2 reasons, I have two other new R* games both set in LA, and, no offence to any fans, but I felt that city doesnt lend it's self to
the style of game with which we are accustomed.

The only connection it has is that the green on the logo could possibly be a reference to grove street, which was one of my original thoughts however, I am leaning more to the idea that the green is just a money reference

Actually, there isn't an actual dollar bill on the logo, I am not entirely sure that they are allowed to recreate actual currency, I am not sure if that is legal? I might be wrong though

Not an actual dollar bill but one from circa 1890-1900, copyrights and other restrictions expire after 80 years in the US so I think Rockstar could reproduce it somewhat. I think the game's going to be set in San Andreas for some reason.

Am I going blind or something? Could someone please point out to me where exactly on the logo there is a dollar bill? Because all I am seeing are the words "Grand Theft Auto" a green V and a "banner" around the V with "FIVE" written on it (yes it has been noted that the word "FIVE" shares a similar if not identical font to the font used to print the amounts on dollar bills and pound notes) but I genuinely don't see any bills at all.

Well it is, or seems to be anyway. What I'm saying is I think the illustrator just happens to be a GTA fan, not sure it was actually commissioned by R*, it's not even their style.

Rockstar have their own in - house guy called Stephen Bliss for alot of the Artwork. he's either produced / directed most of the Artwork since GTAIII. One of my Design Lecturers used to work at R* coincidentally, though never on any of the gaming aspects I don't think.... mainly design for in - house usage at a guess. He helped my out a bunch when I did some research on Bliss during a project a few years ago. He doesn't work there any more I might add; He started his own design company which bombed and now he's a lecturer and art director. He's also a fuckin' prick.

I like the Idea of DC, but obviously not DC. If DC was R*s envisionment (word?) of Carcer City - which I'd like to see - and would get right on board with.

*envisioning

If DC then it would be a brand new city. Carcer was already done in Manhunt and was based on industrial cities in the Rust Belt. Not sure if DC falls under that category, I don't think it does but maybe someone who actually lives there can say.

Well, if you see the past games in GTA series they are mainly based on miami, LA, SF, LV and New York and since DC is the 7th largest populous city in the country there might be a possibility.

I think location might be less important, while I don't want another rehash of the old cities (los santos, san fierro etc.)
I think that timeline is more important, will they go back to the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s or create a modern timeline like IV, I would love a 70s style timeline but can't see it happening as the character would have to lose the mobile phone and internet etc.

Doubt 'V' has anything to do with location, From the rumours that have been going around I think Los Santos would be the likely location, but it could be anywhere and in any time, I still think a 70s timeline is possible but probably not for GTA V.

Yeah I must be the only person here then who's hoping it will be in Los Santos again haha.. Miami would also be an awesome setting for V. One thing I loved about vice city, is that it had so much... Style.

I'm not too sure about D.C, I dont want a realistic world like they did with GTA IV. But why would D.C be a good location for V? What's so special about it? I want V to be like GTA was in the good ol'e day's. Im sure it'll be good anyway no matter where it is set.
