I'm sure they started working out on ideas well before IV came out.

No, games dont take 5 years to make. Even MMOs dont take that long and they are FAR bigger than GTA games. Benzies said it was started during the RDR production and ramped up when that was done. So about 2 solid years full on development, preproduction work before that for maybe a year. 2-3 years sounds right to me due to how many people they have working there, which is a hell of a lot. Around 200.

They are not all full time R* employees. All game companies use contractors for short stretches when they are hot and heavy in production, then release them.
