New Rockstar/T2 Domains, Possible GTAV or Payne?Domain sleuth "Supererogatory" posted an interesting and exciting tweet that Rockstar Games seems to have registered new website domain names in January from Network Solutions (links go to whois):

The domains previously gave Rockstar Games as the registrant but now only mention Take-Two. The other stuff is default privacy information to protect registrants' info but apparently some things slipped this time around. The websites are placeholders right now without any related adverts either.

Assuming these are for the next Grand Theft Auto game, they would suggest it is in modern times (as long as the internet has been widely used so late 90s+) or possibly in the near future. The only GTA link I can find is with HammersteinFaust.com. In GTA IV, Isaac Hammerstein is the step-father of Lazlow and owns Isaac Hammerstein and Daughters Funeral Services. Aside from that, the others have a familiar Rockstar humor about them.

Another game these could be for? Max Payne 3. The exact year in these games is fuzzy but since #3 is 12 years after #2 (which is 2 years after #1), it is possible the internet was around. Only basic information is available about this game at this time but it appears to be next in line for release after L.A. Noire.

So what do YOU think? GTA? Payne? Rockstar trying out a get rich quick scheme??? Let us know in the comments below and join the discussions in the GTA 5 forum!

To me, the domains sounds very spammy. I find it very strange that Rockstar registered them.

Rockstar have loads of domains like this registered. Quite a lot of the in-game websites in GTA4 are registered as real domains by Rockstar, I guess to prevent copyright claims and stuff. Possibly these are just left over from GTA4 and were re-registered after expiring but it's possible they could be newly registered domains for a new game too.

Sweet, i'm guessing they're doing more of their "petsovernight.com" radio-ad-websites as Psy mentioned. Hopefully it's a new GTA!

If they had been registed prior to January/11 it would show up in the whois history.

In that light it makes sense.

Look like typical GTA radio adverts to me plus around the same time these domains where registered I noticed this Twitter account started following me:

Lazlo Show
@LazloRadio view full profile →
Liberty City
Official Twitter page of the host of the Lazlo Show, Lazlo! Read what's coming up next, answer questions to win prizes, call in and have a discussion, and more! http://www.rockstargames.com


The account hasn't tweeted yet and when I saw it my first thought was that they must be planning on using it for the next GTA. To me, it all points to the real possibility we'll be able to tune into Liberty City from Radio wherever the next location is.

That Lazlo account (link) has an odd assortment of followings. Makes me think it's just a fan more than official Lazlow. The Stubbs4Liberty one doesn't follow anyone, not even Rockstar.

That twitter account is odd... I've asked Rockstar before about certain Twitter accounts, whether it's their account or not, and they usually reply. It is weird that he is only following a few of the fan sites, but I do like it's following RSN! lol

A Twitter account starts following you, does that mean anything special? Maybe it's someone who knows you. Perhaps a secret admirer.

That is Lazlow's real life radio. The account in question has an Integrity 2.0 logo (GTA radio). But yeah, I think it's fake anyway.
online Marney1activity 1341 Days Ago
Yeah we know which one is the real account but the the point of posting his latest supposed twitter account here, was that it appeared around the same time as those domains by Take-Two. Also, a new (official?) account by the name @RockstarNews has appeared too together with direct links to the official R* site.

I'm sure all will become clear soon enough.

Anyone for tennis?
