We’ve come across a couple of rumored off-screen gameplay shots from the recently teased and highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V, which is expected to hit the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC sometime in 2012. The two shots we’ve found show off a possible layout of the newly re-imagined Los Santos area and a gameplay shot that looks pretty darned amazing, if I do say so myself. Are they real or not? You be the judge, right after the break.

After further investigation, it seems that the screenshots are bogus. First of all, according to Image Error Analysis, the aforementioned images have been edited lots of times. Some might say that it’s due to the fact that they are off-screen images, right? Fair enough. However, a lot of assets were re-used. Additionally, the dollar is placed at the wrong place in the map screens (it always comes before the number). And then there is this similar screenshot from GTA IV.

That’s precisely why we told you to take those screenshots with a grain of salt. Of course, there is a possibility that Rockstar used lots of placeholders – since the game is still in its early stages – but there are too many similarities with GTA IV.

Of course, we can’t really tell whether this is 100% bogus or not. The only way to be certain is to get our hands on a GTA IV mod that looks like the above screenshots. Until then, we can’t be 100% certain of anything. So yeah, take it with a grain of salt for the time being!

Looks like SA is keeping the back country areas according to the map. By the look of the map the stages are already better then GTA 4. :)
