It’s been over two years since we first explored the brown urban expanse of Grand Theft Auto IV’s Liberty City. Rockstar has made no secret that the franchise is ditching Happiness Island in favor of a new zip code, and if this morning’s rumors turn out to be true, that new zip code will be familiar to the franchise.



A strangely narrative “transcript” from VG247 posits that Grand Theft Auto V will return to the west coast, specifically Hollywood, California – or Vinewood, San Andreas, depending on which reality you prefer. This could get confirmed or debunked in the next few months, since the article claims to expect the Hollywood reveal at the next Max Payne 3 event, or ‘Soon.’ Rockstar’s staying predictably silent about the rumor.
