GTAV To Boast Characters From Previous Franchise Entries?
Rumors abound concerning the main character(s) in Grand Theft Auto V, and the latest is most interesting.
According to one source citing a GTAV blog post, we seem to have stumbled upon all the significant players in the upcoming blockbuster's storyline. It's hardly confirmed, but the tie-ins are intriguing, you have to admit. Here's an excerpt:
"According to the blog, the main character will be a man known as Chico Vialpando – a 20 year old who is successful in life and has no problem ‘getting all of the ladies’. It is when he is tempted to join a local street gang and is introduced to Tony Cipriani when things start to spiral out of control. Cipriani should be ringing your alarm bells immediately, as he’s one of the main characters in Grand Theft Auto III."
Also listed is Leo Johnson, who is the son of Carl Johnson. Remember him? Yeah, the main character in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and coincidentally, that was also set on the west coast. Leo and Chico are cousins and as Leo wants to keep his father's legacy alive, he joins a street gang and shocker of shocks, trouble ensues.
It all sounds feasible but are you buying it? Bear in mind that nothing here is official, if you couldn't guess.
