Recently, highly popular game publisher Rockstar Games, best known for the GTA franchise, leaked possible details of the next in the series of the famous GTA saga. The recent leaks revealed that the casting proccess is now underway thanks to talent agency Telsey & Company putting the call out for a number of characters for a project codenamed ‘Rush’. The list of characters put out by the agency included celebrities, FBI Agents  and a chinese mobster, all characters that seems almost perfect to fit into an open world game set in LA. Theres also someone called Eddie, who is a 47 year old preacher of marijuanas good sides (if any), Mrs Bell, an ugly Californian swinger, a Welsh cult leader who has a thing for Yoga and a chubby teenage gamer called Kevin De Silva, who recives regular abuse online. (Full cast list at end) We will have to wait and see what Rockstar announces at E3 this year.

A few weeks ago, Take Two (who own Rockstar Games) registered web domains that have an extremely GTA like sound to them. Names like,, and make me almost certain as a massive GTA fan that they are definitely lined up for the next game in Rockstars most popular series. Still not convinced? Well theres more. Actor Gilbert Gottfried claimed he had scored the lead role in the next GTA. So, right now its a little hard to speculate over where the next game will be set, but as someone who absolutely loves GTA (its undoubtedly my favourite game) it seems like its either due to be set in LA, showing the not so glamorous side of Hollywood, or Vice City where dreams are born and evidently are killed but it seems we will have to wait and see what Rockstar announces at E3 this year.

Personally I would love this game to be set in Vice City. It was definitely one of my favourite GTA games. Everyone seems to love GTA San Andreas because it was massive and  bit mad, and I loved it for those qualities to, but I remember playing Vice City the day it came out and how powerful the story and characters were, and after playing San Andreas you see how big story was in Vice City. GTA was the first game I ever played, odd sounding I know as I was about 3, and just so happened to play GTA 1 on the Playstation, but maybe thats what sparked my love of such an epic game, and hopefully Rockstar will learn from their mistakes in GTA IV and make GTA awesome again. This really is the big one, and I cant wait.
