GTA 5 Players React to Franklin's Transformation in GTA Online

Franklin from GTA 5 returns in the new GTA Online update, The Contract, and fans can’t help but note that the character has aged.

GTA Online’s upcoming update, The Contract, will feature GTA 5 star Franklin Clinton, who has undergone a makeover over the years. According to Rockstar Games, the Contract, a new game in Grand Theft Auto Online, will be released next week on Wednesday, December 15, across all platforms.

Franklin Clinton co-stars in The Contract alongside Lamar Odom and Chop the Dog, the latter two following in the footsteps of the former in his transformation from Los Santos street hustler to the genuine businessman. Dr. Dre will also appear in the content update, teaming up with Franklin and co. after his phone containing unreleased music goes stolen. This could be the most thrilling GTA Online update to date, but some fans are left wondering why such an upgrade wasn’t released as a single-player expansion. Other fan inquiries concerning The Contract content have begun to spread due to a deeper look at screenshots and gameplay footage.

Franklin has aged since we last saw him in Grand Theft Auto V, even if it doesn’t seem apparent in The Contract’s brief teaser video. Fans of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas were quick to notice. The primary graphic for the update, which features Franklin with specks of grey in his hair and beard, exemplifies the passage of time. His face appears to be ageing as well. However, the frown lines and wrinkles could be ascribed to his grimace. In any case, players like Reddit user JackTheModder started a conversation regarding how much time has gone in the following thread, where several commenters point out that Franklin hasn’t changed his “yee-yee-ass haircut”:

I can’t help but notice how much Franklin has aged from GTA

Franklin took involved in the Union Depository heist with Michael, Lester, and Trevor “years” ago, according to Rockstar’s explanation of The Contract. Franklin is probably in his 30s now if we think time in the GTA 5 universe has shifted according to real-time. He pulls off the salt and pepper look admirably.
