Shawn Fonteno, the actor who plays Franklin in Grand Theft Auto V, knows how much people are clamouring for more content for the game. He also knows how much posting a single image without context or caption can get people’s hopes up …so we’re hoping he’s not just toying with our emotions.
Fonteno first hinted at upcoming story DLC back in 2014, but hasn’t spoken on the topic since. Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two, on the other hand, has denied even suggesting that such a thing might exist, in this quote from May 2015.
Over a year ago Rockstar Games had said that they were exploring story mode content for Grand Theft Auto V; however, no further information has been released since. As always, we leave it to Rockstar Games to share information about their games when they’re ready.
So, the picture. Posted to Fonteno’s Instagram account, the picture shows Fonteno wearing a mo-cap suit in what we can only assume is a Rockstar Games studio (or at least, somewhere else that has a lot of R* posters on the wall). The problem is that we have no idea when the picture was taken. It could be a recent snap (in which case, hooray!), or it could be a nostalgic look back at the time he spent making GTAV all those years ago.
Fingers crossed, people. Stranger things have happened.
