got to say i was a little more interested in the previous theory of playing as a breaking bad sort of character who was actually new to the crime world but hopefully playing as a gangster yet again may still hold some appeal if they at least change the formula in some way
Seeing as a) Shortlist mainly drags stories from other places and gets freelancers to re-write them cheaply and b) all of that info can pretty much be inferred from the first trailer, I don't think this is more than what we already knew plus a little bit of speculation. Doubt there's anything new or solid in this.
1 of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over while hoping for different results and well RockStar is like that with the GTA franchise. It also reminds me of old school games that used same enemies in multiple areas with the only difference being color name and stats.
