GTA 5 jetpack references found in source code – rumour

Grand Theft Auto 5 didn’t come with a jetpack, which we’re sure hacked off some San Andreas fans, but one gamer has reportedly discovered data strings that suggest Rockstar is going to add one into the game.


It follows a site listing GTA 5 PS4 for pre-order. We’re still none the wiser about whether or not the game is coming to PC or new-gen formats yet.

Now, a member of the Se7enSins community Chr0m3 x MoDz has posted screen grabs of what is claimed to be the source code for Grand Theft Auto 5 1.12. It’s worth noting that apparently, the same parts of the code in previous versions did not include jetpack references.

The grabs are watermarked so we won’t be dicks and post them here, but the data strings in question are said to include a few potentially tell-tale references:

DRIVEBY_JETPACK // Setting it so you can shoot from the JETPACK just like parachute
.?AVCGadgetJetpack@@ // the actual jetpack just like parachute.

TASK_JETPACK(int unk);
XBL Toothpik found possible skis .data:838E1118 00000012 C .?AVCGadgetSkis@@
.rdata:820571DC 0000000D C START_SKIING
.rdata:820571D4 00000007 C SKIING
.rdata:820571C4 0000000E C FINISH_SKIING

Could the jetpack be coming to GTA 5 as DLC?
