You’ve probably noticed the narrator sounds a lot like Ray Liotta, who voiced GTA Vice City’s player character Tommy Vercetti. But the greying middle-aged man we see in the footage isn’t the only one in player-character situations. There’s also a shaven-headed youth in a car chase with the police, and a tattooed black guy running from a cop chopper. And hey, isn’t that all three of them together breaking into the jewellery store? Click below for a full size image of the evidence. ![](http://media.pcgamer.com/files/2011/11/GTA-V-Multiple-protagonists-590x368.jpg "") Chris Thursten points out that GTA IV used a deal gone wrong to link three characters that you ultimately ended up playing: Niko in the main game, Johnny Klebitz in the Lost and the Damned DLC, and Luis Lopez in the Ballad of Gay Tony. GTA V might give us a choice of three protagonists from the off, each with their own stories, and use this robbery as the flashpoint that links them. It’d make for a more interesting story structure, and of course it would set them up beautifully for a co-op campaign that ties into the single player. ###### - Tom Francis

    Nice theory although multiplayer is now a permanent addition to the game and co-op was expected.

    Actually, I was rather hoping the protagonist from san andreas could come back.

    The last one doesn't look like Niko, but I'd have to agree with the first two.

    that running guy is definitely CJ, they wouldn't just put a black guy with a white undershirt with tattoos to troll around. atleast that's what they shouldn't do...

    Needs Claude Speed, and that guy who disappeared in III, the businessman

    I think Claude reappeared in SA as the bf of the crazy chick you had a few missions with.

    He did, in fact that 'chick' is catalina, the main antagonist in III, but that game takes place in 1992, III took place in 200(2)?

    Did you just sign your post, OP?

    Anyway, I'm really glad this game will be set in San Andreas. I picked up GTAIV, put it down and immediately picked up SA again. It's far greater in scale and variety. Seeing Mount Chiliad in the trailer is awesome.
