Rockstar has contacted us to confirm that the 'Dan C' twitter account is in fact fake and not operated by a Rockstar employee.
GTA 5 will be well worth the wait according to the twitter account of a self-proclaimed Rockstar programmer.
Dan C. (aka @iTalkVideoGames) wrote in response to a follower that GTA 5 would be something special.
"Oh it will be worth it, even it was a 5 year wait it would still be worth the wait," reads the tweet. "Don't worry, it won't be another 5 years" he adds.
Dan C's description appears to fit the LinkedIn description for Rockstar programmer Dan Conti, who was the Multiplayer Programming Lead on Max Payne 3 according to the Rockstar site.
Meanwhile another Dan C tweet, since deleted by picked up by the GTA Forums, could have hinted at the game's level of completion - or even an impending release date.
Simply reading "100", the tweet prompted speculation that the game might launch in 100 days - Wednesday 24 October - or could be 100 per cent complete, prompting the deletion.
"Twas not gtav related, sorry" reads a follow-up tweet.
Innocently ambiguous tweet or inside hint? We'll ask Rockstar for comment.
GTA 5 is widely expected to launch before April 2013.
