Report: GTA V Is Codenamed 'RUSH'

A number of online casting calls for an "interactive project" suggest that the next installment of the Grand Theft Auto series is currently codenamed "RUSH".

Uncovered by internet sleuth Superannuation , the casting company is listed as Telsey + Company, a firm used in the past by Rockstar Games.

The list of characters appear very GTA-like indeed, including a "weed evangelist", a "paranoiac living in the sticks" and a "somewhat incompetent Chinese mobster".

The listings also suggest that the game will be set in modern times, with characters ranging from an "FPS playing gamer son" to a "disabled IT expert".

A resume for actress Shandar Robinson at Actors Access also features the RUSH name, along with an "Inner city female street" role from "Take 2 Games", which wholly owns Rockstar.

Analysts said recently that they believe GTA V will be announced sometime during the 2012 fiscal year, due to the upcoming expiration of Take-Two's contract with key Rockstar North staff.

I really hope they turn the story back to the zanier days of GTA 1,2, and 3. The characters and situations the player got into were just crazy all in all. GTA4 was just to serious.
