The general consensus of industry analysts and journalists is that we'll get our first glimpse of Grand Theft Auto V at E3 in June.

But maybe Rockstar and Take-Two are preparing an earlier unveiling. If you want to do some sleuthing, check out some domains listed over at Ripten ; they might – and I can't emphasize that word enough – refer to GTAV:

As they cleverly pointed out, Rockstar can be…innovative when it comes to placing fictional brand names in their GTA titles. Therefore, take a close look at what you see at the sites above, and see if anything there might make you think of Grand Theft Auto .

Personally, I don't particularly like the idea of reaching. I like to have the facts in my hand (or in my inbox). But I have to admit that when it comes to GTA, I'll take just about any possibility of info, no matter how small or potentially inaccurate. Yeah, I love me some GTA. 🙂

Bout time! It better be more like San Andreas and less like GTA4.

I liked GTA IV.
Hell, I've got over 130 hours in it so far.
Hmmm, that reminds me, I need to go back to it & get some more hours in, but right now KZ 3 is taking up all my spare time.

Biker, me & my bud actually spent just days, I think 3 or 4 trying to get the wanted trophy! Just me, my bud & Hangmans NOOSE! Do you know how long it is getting 5million points just to get to level 10!? But looking back, it was actually some fun memories. Still loving GTA IV in 2011.

I swear that I've heard Hammerstein Faust mentioned in the series somewhere before…

Aside from that, the others just seem very like GTA. As for an announcement/unveiling at E3: Unlikely. R* said before E3 last year that they were big enough to do their own conference, so I expect them to pull the trigger after the release of L.A. Noire at least. I imagine they'll probably hold a conference sometime after E3, if only to completely steal the spotlight away from the other companies. MC:DC, GTA: Motor City, Max Payne 3, Agent, GTA: San Andreas Stories, RDRevelations. They've got plenty waiting in the wings.
Peace.

Niko at one time worked for Mikhail Faustin. That is why the name may sound familiar.

No, it's not that. I think it might have been a law firm in either LCS or VCS. Maybe something on one of the radio stations. It wasn't obvious; that much I know.

Man, in my opinion Rockstar☆ are the best developers in the world. If you go to GTA IV and just listen to the city or go in GTA IV & just look at the actual city building by building, you'll know what im talking about. It even rains & the sun sets! Awesome game, just like anything Rockstar☆ makes.

I agree, Rockstar is an amazing video game and entertainment company. Although I have yet to play Red Dead: Redemption, since I personally believe it will somehow ruin the feeling I have towards the Grand Theft Auto series.
Then again, I own every other Rockstar game that has ever existed. I think it's about that time I complete my collection with Red Dead. 🙂

@Wiiplay,
Odds are that sooner or later R* will release a RDR complete collection that includes Undead Nightmare, as they've done with GTAIV. Considering you've already waited this long, it won't do too much harm to wait for it to come out (if it doesn't, please don't hurt me).

But RDR is different enough from GTA to not ruin the series in any way, shape or form. In some ways it is better, but in most it is simply different.
Peace.

I'm serious if you type them in your browser, I'm using Safari you get some page with a blank information about creating your own business.

These websites will most likely only be accessible from within Grand Theft Auto, which is why the 'real' website is just a simple business template.

I don't get what the websites have to do with GTA V?

Grand Theft Auto: IV allowed for players to view fake websites within a virtual computer. It's safe to assume that these new websites will be accessible from within GTA5.

Possibilities for a future ARG?

From the looks of those websites, it looks like the game will be based in either; California, or Nevada.

CashForDeadDreams.com – (People go to Vegas with big dreams of becoming rich, but leave with empty hands. Or, People dream of becoming a famous celebrity, and go to Hollywood)

SixFigureTemps.com – (Sounds to me like a mission-based website. Maybe you are hired by a large organization, and that's their website?)

StopPayingYourMortgage.net – (No clue)

HammersteinFaust.com – (No clue)

LifeInvader.com – (No clue)

I think life invader is a spoof on Facebook, My Life, or My Space since that social networking crap does exactly that….invades and takes over your life. Well, not mine since I don't and won't ever have a profile on any of them. Hell, I only joined twatter to try to win something off this site and have never signed back in since.

i doubt will be seeing this anytime soon, R* north are busy working on agent.
dont forget they have a 2 IP deal with sony, this is the first game so there will be another exclusive after that.
maybe its GTAV but im pretty sure jack said there new IPs so it cant be GTA.
if it is GTA though if its anything like 4 i wont be playing it.
the whole point of GTA is to have FUN!
NOTHING in GTAIV was fun!
whole point of GTA is to drive around doing massive jumps, driving like a lunatic and aggravating the cops.
you cant do any of that in 4 because you die very quickly.
crash into a car doing 2KMPH and you go flying out the windshield and die.
havent liberty city invented seat belts yet?
its just far too "realistic", well tries to be but its not and thats what completley destroys the game!
thats why saints row is better because it says ah f*ck it lets have some fun!
GTAIV is proof that games dont get reviewed for what they are, they get reviewed for how they look.
which is f*cking BS!
the least important thing about a game is the graphics!
dont forget max payne 3s coming out god knows when, i cant see them announcing any more games till LA Noire, max payne 3 and agent are out.

You do know that he puts on the seatbelt right? If you drive off without putting on your seatbelt he will fly out.

Go to this link, watch the whole vid, and then tell me you can die too quickly when driving like a maniac.

Last GTA had some of the worst controls I've seen, GTA V better be one heck of an improvement.

Sounds interesting. I just hope they improve everything that was wrong with Grand Theft Auto IV. That game was disappointing. The controls were sloppy, the missions were boring, and they substituted plenty of fun with realism. Still a good game though.

Red Dead Redemption was a million times better than GTAIV and L.A. Noire looks like it's going to be amazing so I think they'll deliver something great.

Haha – those were definitely GTAish names for sure. It can't be any other game, imo.
