Please put all your wishes, guesses and suggestions on our dedicated [[Community:GTA V Wishlist|GTA 5 Wishlist]]
This article is for official news, real proof and significant rumours only.}} I think this is an irrelevant page until GTA V (if that's what it's called) is officially announced. And whoever posted that link (edit: Chip2007), did you read the description? He even says it is GTA SA with some mods. --[[User:Aussiebushmatt|Aussiebushmatt]] 17:18, 11 August 2008 (UTC) :You are correct, this page should not exist. I have deleted it until we have SOME information to go on. [[User:Gboyers|User:Gboyers]] [[User_talk:Gboyers|talk]] 18:03, 11 August 2008 (UTC) :::when i hear definate proof from rockstar i will add it. but considering the time frame of the gta games it wont be soon [[User:Chip2007]] ::::Of course. I presume there will be a few 'GTA IV-era' games before GTA V comes our way. Well, until then! --[[User:Aussiebushmatt|Aussiebushmatt]] 18:50, 11 August 2008 (UTC) Looking t the sheer difference in scale btw GTA IV and GTA III, I cant wait to go home to San Andreas. Can you say "GTA-Oblivion"! --[[User:Sukhoi35BM|Sukhoi35BM]] :As mentioned earlier, there is no source to prove the title of the next game, and everything that is written in the article. I do not think it was a new game will begin soon. None of the previous eras occurred in only one city. One could argue about the next game for home consoles, but does not mention a title without sources. In my opinion this article should be deleted until a trusted source, such as Rockstar, for example. [[User:Eduardo Sellan Brazilian|Eduardo Sellan Brazilian]], 01:06, February 19, 2010 ::I agree. This wiki is about facts, not fiction or assumption. -- [[User:Master Sima Yi|Master Sima Yi]] 13:37, April 27, 2010 (UTC :::Yeah, I say go ahead and delete it. Interesting factoid about the Episodes from Liberty City booklet, though. --[[User:PsychoDuck|PsychoDuck]] 01:11, May 3, 2010 (UTC) well i dont think it should be deleted i think it should be moved to the gta 5 wishlist instead. == GTA uses roman numericals... == Move the page to Grand Theft Auto V. --[[User:Insane Survivor|Insane!]] 15:48, August 24, 2010 (UTC) :[[Grand Theft Auto 2|GTA 2]] didn't use roman numerals. There's nothing to suggest it would be called five/5/V either - it might just be 'GTA IV London' or 'GTA Vice City 2' or 'GTA London 2012'. At this stage, the number format doesn't really matter, so long as people can find this page and understand what it means. There are some people that will get misread GTA V as GTA IV, or not understand that it means 5. This is just a simpler option until we have something more concrete. Does that work for you? [[User:Gboyers|Gboyers]] [[User_talk:Gboyers|talk]] 17:51, August 24, 2010 (UTC) Yes, understood. --[[User:Insane Survivor|Insane!]] 23:12, August 24, 2010 (UTC) == Multiplayer? ==

I've always been a bit confused about the designation of Kenji and Asuka Kasen as "co-leaders" of the Yakuza, and was wondering if there was anything official from Rockstar about this designation. The main reason I ask is because of the designation of Kenji as wakagashira. The term is not used to designate a leader or co-leader within yakuza societies; rather, the term refers to the second-in-command, or underboss.
Denshi Jisho defines the term as "young leading subordinate". The Wikipedia article on the Yamaguchi-gumi, which this article states may serve as inspiration for the Yakuza in GTA III, states that "Wakagashira were elected as underbosses to the kumicho", kumicho being the term the article uses to designate the leader. The article on Masaru Takumi describes him as the "second-in-command (wakagashira) and financial overseer of... the Yamaguchi-gumi". A flowchart from Wikipedia, File:Yakuza hierarchy.png, translates wakagashira as "first lieutenant" and clearly shows the pposition as being subordinate to the family leader.
Considering these numerous designations, it would make sense to me that there are three possibilities for the organizational structure. The one in line with the "co-leader" theory is that Kenji and Asuka are jointly in charge of a larger organization's operations within Liberty City, and being "co-leaders", both hold the title of wakagashira, as the term can be applied to more than one person. However, in Waka-Gashira Wipeout, Donald Love specifically uses a definite article to refer to Kenji's title: "I want you to kill the Yakuza Waka-Gashira, Kenji Kasen." I would believe that that wording would not exist if others held the title of wakagashira, as then Kenji would be a wakagashira, not the wakagashira. As such, I am discounting that theory.
The two remaining possibilities, therefore, are a) that Kenji is the 'wakagashira subordinate to unknown persons outside of Liberty City, and Asuka is therefore subordinate to him as well; or b) that Kenji is the wakagashira subordinate to Asuka. Neither of these possibilities leave the option for "co-leadership" open.
So again, I'm wondering if there's any release from Rockstar indicating "co-leadership" of the Yakuza. If so, I'll put it down to an error on their part (or my own misunderstanding somewhere). But otherwise, I think we need to ditch the "co-leader" designation we've used for Kanji and Asuka on Yakuza-related pages.
