GTA will stay in America

In an interview with InsideGamer, Rockstar's Dan Houser told that America is such a big part of the GTA-games, that the series would lose its universal appeal if they were set in some other part of the world.

Dan Houser: "You know, you could make a great game set in Amsterdam. Would it be GTA? I don’t know.

We haven’t done it, so I can’t really offer a comment or an opinion on it. We’ve avoided it because we think that part of the experience of GTA is its engagement with America, or American media, American movies, American culture or whatever. Some kind of Americana is such a part of the games, that in removing that, it would bizarrely make them lose their universality.

Three Playable Characters

Houser also commented on Rockstars decision to create three playable characters for GTA 5, stating that it took only a few e-mails to decide on the matter. "We don’t really have (meetings). It’s all a few emails, it’s quite weird." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

well in that case take it to detroit. its the perfect setting for a GTA game. while i know vice city is gonna be the next city they take out. detroit should come right after that.

lol detroit is to small and is nothing but slum... I say next GTA should be in Chicago or Atlanta
RivetCityGhoul  +   1186d ago

I believe other countries would try to censor all of the humor/crazy tactics GTA is known for

I think they can only go to Asian countries, if they come to EU... there would be a massive rage on some countries, germany, france, UK, Italy?
I dunno, the game would get bans I'm sure of it... but then again, there was "The Getaway", even so, I think GTA is much more hardcore than that game, and governaments know what game it is...

GTA London was okay. A modern version with the humour of Snatch and Lock, Stock and two Smoking barrels might be good.
