Rumour: “GTA V is set in…”

“Heathrow’s off at the next exit.”

“I should have bought my sat nav.”
“Why didn’t you?”
“This morning wasn’t so good.”
“I suppose it isn’t easy leaving them for trips.”
“Yes. Look.”
“What?”
“It was more than that. And this isn’t a trip, as such. Thanks for coming to help with the car.”
“It’s nothing. What the fuck is wrong with you?”
“Don’t, alright? Not now.”
“Sorry. What’s up?”
“I told her.”
“Told her what?”
“I told her I’m gay.”

[pause]

“What?”
“I told her I’m gay.”
“What?”
“I thought this is what you wanted.”
“Jesus. Well, yes. But. Fuck. Turn off here.”
“Yes.”
“Are you sure you’re gay?”
“The ‘bumming men’ gave it away, I think. Well, ‘bumming man’.”
“Really?”
“There was never anyone else.”
“Oh my God. What about the kids?”
“I don’t know. I’m dying. I just had to tell her and go.”
“I. I.”
“This isn’t about you. I mean, it is, but I had to do it. Pass me a cigarette, will you.”
“Yes. Here.”

[zippo]

“Thanks.”
“Look, I have to say this. Hang on: where the fuck are you going?”
“America. I’ll be back in about a month. I’m sorry. I know this isn’t ideal. I’m very glad you could come with me today.”
“There’s still an us?”
“Yes, of course.”
“OK. Look, I’m so sorry. About the funeral. And the other times. I’ll really try to lay off it from now on. I think I was hitting it so hard because of the situation between the two of us. I’ve been seriously fucked up by the whole thing.”
“I know. And I’m sorry too. I. I’m not normally such a cunt. I’ve been horrible to my wife. And to you.”
“Here.”
“Yes.”
“What did she say?”
“She said she knew something was going on, but when I told her it was a man she was stunned.”

[window, flicking sound]

“I know this sounds awful, but I’m extremely happy.”
“I know you are.”
“There’s a space there.”

[seatbelts and doors slamming. suitcase and boot. remote key lock. break in recording. static for approximately 11 minutes]

“OK. I’m going to check in.”
“Don’t.”
“I have to. I’m going.”
“No, I don’t mean that. I. Oh God. I.”
“What?”
“I love you.”

[pause. muffled tannoy]

“I love you too.”

[crying, a crushing sound]

“OK. I really am going.”
“OK. Please call me.”
“I will.”

[pause]

“Wait.”
“Yes?”
“What about that story you mentioned?”
“[laughs] You’re shocking.”
“Man’s got to live.”
“This is a big one. And they’re about to close your gate.”
“No problem. We’re in an airport. It’s full of planes.”
“It’s GTA V.”
“About time.”
“It’s not easy.”
“I know. Did you get the setting?”
“Yeah, I did.”
“And?”
“It’s set in Hollywood.”
“OK.”

[pause]

“Really?”
“That’s what I’ve been told.”
“Seems small.”
“Yeah, well. I didn’t make it.”
“Who?”
“Come on.”
“You asked Rockstar?”
“No comment.”
“Right.”
“They’re going to announce it soon.”
“When?”
“I don’t know. I think it’s going to be at the Max Payne 3 event. ‘Soon’ is all that was said. I doubt GI’s canvassing opinion on location for fun.”
“I saw that, yeah.”
“That’s it.”
“OK. I appreciate it.”
“No sweat. I’ve got another good one for you. Maybe that’ll help make your mind up about coming back from the US.”
“No doubt.”

[pause]

“Bye.”
“Bye.”

    Im calling bullshit, no 1 Rockstar are a one game at a time company why would they announnce GTA at a Max payne 3 event which would then overshadow Max payne 3, like i said bullshit. As for the setting Eurogamer are backing this up so its looking likely.

    “next GTA rumored to be in Hollywood”.

    That’s really all you need to say.

    In fact, that’s what the other 5 sites (including IGN) DO say. Makes for a much easier read IMO for someone scanning articles. Again, just my personal feedback is all. Love this site – hate these type’s of “convo articles”. :)

    When your regular readers resort to going elsewhere to get the information you’ve obnoxiously hidden in your self-fellating waffle, that’s a clear sign that you’re doing it wrong.

    So London? Hmmm…..don’t know about that one. For me what was missing in GTA IV was the countryside, everything non-city that was in San Andreas. Forests,mountains, you name it. I surely hope we’ll get to see more than just the city London with also outside of it.

    Oh wait, i read wrong. Its Hollywood…but everything else i said, i hope that’ll be in V too.

    i dont mean anything specific but even just a simple statement like “vg247 has been informed from an independent source that GTA V is possibly being set in hollywood” insteda of this guff.

    Or how about people lighten up and just take it for what it is? Pat isn’t exactly known for being a dishonest reporter, so bitching about the way its written is utterly meaningless. The news is still being reported.
