Making for a lively Sunday morning, we have what are rumored to be the first off-screen images of the yet-to-be-announced Grand Theft Auto V.
The images come by way of a poster named ‘GTALEAKER’ on a the Gamer’s Hell forums, who claims he is “in contact” with a Rockstar employee. The said employee purportedly provided him with three off-screen images of the game and revealed its location as “Honolulu, Hawaii.” This would contradict most rumors, which set the game in the Los Angeles, California area.
As always, take this with a large grain of salt.
If anything, E3′s next month, so it won’t be too long before we hear an official announcement from the mouths of Rockstar.
Update 10:58am: As suspected, the whole thing’s a fake. Running a search for “Hawaii sunsets” on Google images brought me to this wallpaper on Open Walls. It’s the exact same image used in the background of the title screen.
Los Angeles, it is, then.
