Sources Say GTA V Protagonist Named
Bits and pieces of Grand Theft Auto V news have slow to come. This by far seems more of a chunk of information.
Apparently the print version of the magazine ShortList has released information regarding the game. This news also robs GameInformer of its news release expected later today.
From other leaks, many have reported that the main character is Albert De Silva. Much like the previous stories in the GTA series, the main character is centralized around the idea of leaving the current business, or making their mark as one of the biggest criminals on scene. Both ends of the spectrum often lead to the same result.
The recent edition of the magazine has this quote locked into print:
“The protagonist is an East Coast gangster who moved to the game’s Los Santos setting (Rockstar’s take on LA and Southern California) for a fresh start. But, as in The Godfather III–just as he thought he was out, they pulled him back in.”
