Surely a Grand Theft Auto V announcement is almost upon us.
With a multitude of GTA V styled web domains uncovered last month - and more just last week - and an actor and comedian seemingly outing the title over Twitter, the sense of an impending announcement has been strong for some time.
But a call for actors by Take-Two surely puts the idea that Grand Theft Auto V is now underway beyond doubt, especially since the character descriptions have a distinctively GTA flavour.
Two out of the five characters in Take-Two's casting call are described as "a liberal young male who believes in a conspiracy made by republicans to undermine America" and "a young female obsessed with sex parties, always dreaming of being a Hollywood celebrity."
Also in the line-up is "a white creepy man who thinks that technology is a poison against the wilderness and "a man-boy love activist who just got released from an Indonesian prison."
Finally Take Two is also looking for someone in the 10-15-year-old bracket to play "a young, fast-talking boy fighting for the right of young boys to drink alcohol and have sex."
Sounds like GTA to us. It's also interesting to note that each listing requires a profile photo, suggesting that the actor's appearance will affect their chances despite the likelihood of this being voice over work.
Can we take that to suggest that the next GTA could use L.A Noire's MotionScan tech where the actor's face is reproduced almost perfectly?
