Prior to establishing itself as a myth, Pastor Richard's Mission was once deemed as an existing element of the game. According to players, the mission was to be given by Pastor Richards to Tommy Vercetti. The nature of the mission is revealed to be about something with the promotion of Richard's ideas in the city along with the inclusion of Mercedes Cortez in the mission for undisclosed reasons. The hunt for the mission remained on the talk of forums and discussions for a couple of years until all searches went futile, ultimately deciding that no such mission exists. However, players still hold the view that the mission was cancelled, due to the demise of the voice actor playing Pastor Richards in the game.
