GTA 5 has finally had details confirmed, but what about all those early rumours that weren't true?
We look back at a year's worth of GTA 5 speculation to pick out the points that absolutely aren't true, as well as look at the ones that could still be confirmed.
GTA 5 Rumours That Didn't Come True
- CJ, Tommy Vercetti and Claude won't be making an appearance in GTA 5. Dan Houser confirmed it himself.
- GTA 5 won't be set across three cities, instead focusing on Los Santos only and a few outlying towns.
- One of the playable characters is not called Albert, casting doubt on the suggestion that Albert de Silva from the leaked casting call was one of the charcters.
- RPG-style character customisation won't be in the game.
- If 'Albert' is assumed to be Michael, the older protagonist, then his reason for turning to crime is not a 'ponzi scheme', and is in fact thanks to his wife spending all his money.
GTA 5 Rumours That Could Still Be True
- Car and weapon customisation.
- Multiplayer will feature 32 players and focus on gang territory.

- How the police force will react has not yet been mentioned. Whether they will act realistic is yet to be seen.
- It is not known whether animals will be in the game.
- It may be possible to enter buildings and set up barricades.
- You may need to fill your car up with petrol at gas stations.
- In-game television programmes may have more channels.
