Is this yet another tease, or are we getting an announcement?


Shawn Fonteno, the voice and face behind GTA 5‘s Franklin, is teasing us again. The actor took to his Instagram account to post a new picture of himself in a mo-cap suit.

It’s not clear when this photo was taken, but it clearly shows him wearing it at what appears to be a Rockstar studio, judging from all the posters.

Fonteno more or less confirmed he’s working on story DLC for the game, as far back as 2014, but northing’s been announced since. The most recent statement from Rockstar parent company Take-Two about possible story content was a ‘we don’t know what you’re talking about’-type response, followed up by another non-committal statement from Rockstar.

Will 2016 be the year we get new story DLC for GTA 5?
