IGN recently reported that, at the most recent New York Comic-Con, one of the GTA V voice actors let slip that they wish they could have voiced Carl “CJ” Johnson from GTA: San Andreas. They also got very quiet when asked about a current project they’re working on.
Does this Mean new DLC will Center Around CJ?
While these are interesting tidbits, the idea that this means CJ will play a prominent role in upcoming GTA V downloadable content is pure speculation. It’s pretty easy to argue that this might confirm a variety of other things, with just as much validity. Voice actors are often required to remain quiet about their current projects because of non-disclosure agreements between themselves and their employers.
It’s certainly not impossible that upcoming GTA V DLC will mention CJ in some way, but the details we’ve seen so far do little to indicate that CJ is coming back for sure. Fans certainly are excited about the idea, and maybe Rockstar is planning something for them. Ultimately, though, the only way to know for sure is to simply wait and see. Maybe CJ will come back as the wealthy owner of an empire he logically would be in GTA V’s universe. That being said, it’s just as likely that he never will.
