Update: Rockstar has replied to our email but did not dish out any info.

“There is no confirmed information as of yet.”

There have been many claims, both believable and outrageous, that Grand Theft Auto V has been in development since mid-last year. Remarkably, we may have gotten a solid confirmation on GTA5‘s existence and who will voice the game’s protagonist from an unexpected source. Anyone familiar with a Mr. Gilbert Gottfried or better known as the voice of Iago in Aladdin? Well “Iago” recently tweeted, “Just found out I’m voicing the lead in grand theft auto 5!”’

Now this hair brain statement had no substance to its claim at first because of Gottfried’s rather questionable comments on Japan. No one took it seriously and did nothing to capture proof of this statement. Those actions turned out to be an Achilles heel for us gamers. Soon after the tweet went up, it disappeared. With the situation of the tweet disappearing…does this prove that Grand Theft Auto V is in development and Mr. Gottfried stars a lead voice acting role or if anything a comedic role?

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
