What I think would be cool is if at some point in the story, you were forced to make a difficult decision similar to the multiple endings of GTA IV. Something along the lines of getting a big payout, or losing all of your money in order to keep one of the main characters alive.
Anyway, for the topic at hand. I don't think any of the three amigos will die, for gameplay purposes. The switching mechanic would be thrown off and they already mentioned character-specific side missions.
Cuz this. I also mentioned this in a previous "Will anyone die?" topic.
No, because of what mentialpatient said. Character specific side missions and the switching aspect.
They could easily take away those missions when the character dies.
Well sure but does that make any sense? Think of 100% completion, what if you finish the story before you've completed them? Does that mean your f***ed?

I'd also like to point out that Rockstar has had a trend of killing off the protagonist lately.........in their other games. L.A Noire and Red Dead Redemption are not GTA's. the last few GTA stories have had loss of loved ones, Be it Kate or Roman or in Johnny's case Jim and his gang going to s*** and to some extent Ashley. I see a far greater chance of people close to the protagonist dying. Michaels family is ripe for tragedy, it's pretty clear from the first trailer he loves his kids, and even more clear in the second trailer that he has family problems. If I had to guess, it's gonna be one of his kids and you'll probably have to choose which one dies, kinda like in 4. But what the f*** do I know, I don't work for Rockstar. you asked a question and I answered, no I don't think one of the protagonist will die.

I seriously doubt it. If GTA is going to stick with the tradition of allowing you to play with the same protagonists after the main story is completed, that means keeping the main characters alive. No, the protagonists will be fine. However, don't be surprised to see some of the main characters' friends/family (Michael's son, maybe?) bite the dust. That's basically a guarantee.
