Take-Two’s City Stories Trademark Could Be GTA V Story DLC
Rockstar Games had already confirmed that a Grand Theft Auto V story DLC would be coming in 2014 and will feature all three characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor in Southern San Andreas.
However, they hadn’t mentioned as to what the story of the DLC would be about, or a specific date for its release. Well, these mysteries might be getting solved pretty soon if a recently filed trademark is to be believed.
Take-Two Interactive, Rockstar’s parent company filed a trademark for the term ‘City Stories’ and the filing explicitly states that its connected to Vice City Stories and Liberty City Stories, two previous GTA titles (they were actually more of spin offs).
Typically, Rockstar makes no comment about business actions such as trademark filing so it’s safe to assume they won’t be making any comments or issuing a statement regarding these as well.
Whether this trademark pertains to the upcoming story DLC for GTA V is still not clear but looking at the previous pattern, it is highly possible that it is linked to the DLC.
Previous Grand Theft Auto titles had Liberty City and Vice City featured in them, and Rockstar later released the two City Stories spin offs for both those cities. One can safely assume they might be doing the same with the 3rd major area in the franchise, San Andreas.
San Andreas is actually more of a state rather than a city, consisting of Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas. Since Rockstar previously said the DLC would be in “Southern San Andreas” it is safe to assume they were talking about Los Santos, which is the southern city in the state.
What do you think? Could the DLC be titled something like Los Santos Stories? Give your opinions in the comments below!
