Everywhere you look, there is a fresh Grand Theft Auto VI, and one that hasn’t gone away is claiming that Carl “CJ” Johnson – the protagonist of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is returning for GTA 6. Rockstar Games hasn’t officially announced anything yet, but is almost certainly in development for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Many were quick to point out the faults in the rumor, which has since been confirmed as not true. Taking to Instagram, Chris Bellard, also known as Young MayLay and the voice of CJ has squashed the rumors and confirmed that he’s not involved in the unannounced project.
Bellard also took the opportunity to take a shot at Rockstar Games, who he clearly has no intention on working with ever again. It’s unclear what the issue between the two is, but in the initial social media post and comments, he’s made his feelings about Rockstar Games very clear.
Again, it’s unclear what the issue between the voice actor and Rockstar Games is, but it’s not very surprising to hear there’s bad blood. After all, Rockstar Games has had issues with their voice actors in the past, especially its protagonists. The voice actor of Tommy Vercetti (Ray Liotta) – the protagonist of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has spoken about bad blood in the past, and the behind Niko Bellic (Michael Hollick) has had major issues with Rockstar Games at one point.
