Grand Theft Auto V leak a "typo"

Is stuntman telling the truth?

Imagine typing the name of a game wrong on your CV! That's what renowned stuntman Declan Mulvey claimed happened when he seemed to inadvertently leak the existence of Grand Theft Auto V.

It was "a typo", he told CVG - it should have read Grand Theft Auto IV.

Mulvey is prolific in the videogame world and has worked with Rockstar before, most recently on detective game L.A. Noire and MIA project Max Payne 3. Curiously, however, his IMDB profile makes no mention of Grand Theft Auto IV. Why would such a high profile game be left off the list?

Coinciding with Mulvey's "typo" was the discovery of five Rockstar-registered web domains revolving around spoof slogans like those used to market GTAIV.

The are CashForDeadDreams, SixFigureTemps, StopPayingYourMortgage, HammersteinFausta and LifeInvader, according to fan spotter GrandTheft5.

Rumour has it that Hollywood and not Albert Square will be the setting for Grand Theft Auto V.
