Grand Theft Auto Online recently received one of its biggest updates of the entire year in the form of The contract, which is a few odd years after the events of Grand Theft Auto 5. the GTA Online Contract update features Grand Theft Auto 5 the protagonist Franklin as one of the central characters who gives the characters missions to complete, and some dialogue in one of the missions apparently confirms the canon ending of the base game. Please note that this item will have SPOILERS for Grand Theft Auto 5, then proceed with caution.


For those who may not remember, Grand Theft Auto 5 has multiple endings, with different characters who can live or die depending on what players choose to do in the end. One choice will leave Trevor dead, while another will leave Michael dead. The third option GTA 5 players can choose to have the three main playable characters survive the events of the game, and that has long been assumed to be the end of the canon.

This is now more or less confirmed by the GTA Online Contract update that this is the end of the canon for Grand Theft Auto 5. During one of the game’s missions, players end up driving through the filming area in a golf cart with a Franklin shotgun. Franklin notices that he knows one of the movie producers who works there, and while it’s possible he’s referring to someone else, he’s almost certainly talking about Michael, who is taking a job as a producer from movies at the end of GTA 5.

Of course, this only applies to Michael, and so it could be argued that it is possible that Trevor’s death was the canon. GTA 5 end. However, the GTA Online Smuggler Race The update confirmed that Trevor is also still alive. Between this revelation from Michael and what we already knew about Trevor, we can safely say that the GTA 5 The end of the canon is indeed when Franklin, Michael, and Trevor all survive the events of the game.

Now that the GTA 5 The end of the canon has been cemented, fans are undoubtedly interested in the continuation of the franchise. We know that the Grand Theft Auto 5 next-gen ports are on the horizon, but fans are increasingly looking forward to GTA 6. Unfortunately, there has been no news on Grand Theft Auto 6 from all official sources, and the best guess is that the game is still years away from its release.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is now available for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One with the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions also in development.
