Screenshot of Liberty City in GTA 5's engine surface on Rockstar artist's portfolio

A screenshot apparently showing Liberty City (from GTA 3 and GTA 4 (opens in new tab), as well as the various spin-offs and DLCs attached to those games) in the GTA 5 (opens in new tab) engine has fans running wild with speculation over on the fan-run GTAForums (opens in new tab). The shot seems to originate from the online portfolio (opens in new tab) of someone named Adrian Page, which just so happens to match the name of an artist at Rockstar Games, according to LinkedIn (opens in new tab).

The fans are obsessing over every little detail, scrutinizing surface textures and model variances. And while some are skeptical, the consensus seems to be that this is legit. Whether or not it leads to some as-of-yet-unannounced DLC or a spin-off set in Liberty City is unclear. This could be scrapped content, or just a passion project for Page.

In any case, I suggest you enjoy the picture for what it is, but don't get too hyped until there's some sort of official word from Rockstar.
