Grand Theft Auto V - Jetpack References Found in Source Code
Written Wednesday, April 23, 2014 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Someone has been digging around in the source code of Grand Theft Auto V and turned up several references to jetpacks. Could they be coming to GTA Online, or perhaps form part of GTA V’s upcoming add-ons?
Contained within the code of GTA V’s 1.12 update, and found by Se7enSins community member Chr0m3 x MoDz, the jetpack references don’t confirm the addition, but they do suggest we could be zipping between Los Santos’ skyscrapers soon.
Interestingly, Grand Theft Auto V does already include references to jetpacks, in-game. Secreted away on Mount Chiliad there’s a etching which shows them, along with what looks like a hatching egg and a UFO. You can see an image of the etching below, along with the aforementioned code.
