Yesterday, Rockstar released three new GTA V screenshots. Not only did this make about 80% of gamer’s Monday worthwhile getting up for, but it also hints at some interesting nuggets of new info about the protagonist of the game. Rumours have been circulating about GTA V having multiple protagonists. Many were quick to call BS on this “leak”, myself included, but the new screens seem to hint at that.
In the new three screen shots, two characters are obviously highlighted. An African-American male, and a man in a suit very much resembling the “Ned Luke” character.
First, we’ll look over the shot above. The man on the bike is obviously dark skinned. It is highly possible that he is a random civilian, but the absense of any other NPC’s is a bit odd. If this man is THE protagonist, then many players were wrong is assuming Ned Luke is the main character. This man does resemble the figure of the man seen running from the police in the first trailer, and driving the red car.
