Rockstar talks GTA 6 and beyond "we're not fantasising" about next gen

OXM:Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser is "interested" in creating games for Xbox One and PS4, but insists this wasn't remotely a consideration during development of the resolutely current gen GTA 5. Houser's lot aren't in the business of employing technology for technology's sake, apparently, and they haven't set aside ideas, features or content for any hypothetical future releases.

"but my own personal feeling is that GTA is America. With [GTA 5], I think, we're very happy with the location. It let us do something iconic"

That kind of kills hope for any GTA taking place out of the states again

Fireseed1827d ago

Which makes sense because it would require growing up and being engulfed in a nations culture in order to make a thorough satire like GTA makes of America. Not to mention most people would probably take offense to an American developer making satire out of a foreign nation.

Rockstar North is located in Scotland.

Dan Houser is English.


The thing is there are not many countries in the world that are as diverse in their culture the way America is.

GTA works so well because it cuts across sooo many different peoples and cultures. From Afro american gang bangers, rednecks and hippies to the latin american mob... etc all in one location.

Not many cities of the world can boast all that.

Manchester in England is the 3rd most diverse city in the world where over 200 languages are spoken.

Would love it to be set in my home town. We have gun crime here. Severe gap between the rich and the poor. We have a massive African as well as Jewish community.. plenty of eastern Europeans...

I honestly don't want GTA to leave the states. GTA has been ingrained into American social culture, whether for better or worse. Just look at the millions of teens and adults who buy the games here.

drsfinest721827d ago

Ok so out the country. Thwres really no other place that would make sense. UK? I don't think I could get used to gta full of UK accent

ANIALATOR1361827d ago

accents* and they would never set a GTA game in the UK because its supposed to be taking the mick out of American culture. They would never take the mick out of their own British culture

ANIALATOR1361825d ago

that was the old gta not the new gta

SpideySpeakz1826d ago (Edited 1826d ago )

Isn't guns banned in the UK? There's even hate speech laws in the UK.

tachy0n1826d ago

since san fierro or las venturas were not included in gta v where do u think the next GTA would be?

drsfinest721827d ago

I think new Orleans would be a good place. It has rich areas and ghetto areas. Etc

PoSTedUP1827d ago

i see em doing detroit next. the fall of detroit. its so bad right now it would be a perfect setting.

KonsoruMasuta1827d ago (Edited 1827d ago )

Eh, I think we should explore Alderny state (The GTA equivalent of NJ) a little more. We got to see some pats of Alderny in GTA IV but there is so much more they could do with it.

SpideySpeakz1826d ago

Being a native of New Orleans, guns and drugs is a problem every day over here. One of the highest murder rates in the country and police corruption at the highest since the 90s. But also, we have some of the most famous and rich people that live here. It's the perfect place for GTA, plus with a nice french subculture in the downtown area.

I think R* could keep repeating their several main US cities and it could work out if they just keep adding features with each generation or so:

- Increase physical size and scale of the map
- More packed with interiors
- More interactions
- More immersion

There's a lot that can be done. Imagine being able to interact with basically everything, or having nearly everything simulated. R* did say their ultimate goal is to create the ultimate simulation. It's clear they're not going to stick to crime, driving and shooting.

There are many places to start. It may be too early, as a gamer to be already thinking about it, but if only in a future GTA just the simple act of car-jacking becomes a challenge, and the NPC doesn't just give up his car.

It's all these little hypothetical features I hope R* try to create that I think will define and add dimensions to each generation.

Lykon1826d ago

I'd like to see them set a game in a decade with half decent music again... like vice city .. but the 70's . That way they can get rid of the mobile phone irritation ... and rap/thug culture

diehllane1827d ago

We need a GTA Canada.
Everyone will be super polite when you steal their cars...they'll offer to give you money to fill up the tank.

When you kill people on the streets, you get piles of coins instead of stacks of bills.

Need I say more?

Kleptic1826d ago

Not to fire arms of any kind will be well won't be charged after getting patched up at the local hospital...

diehllane1821d ago

No charge for the hospital, but they will certainly take a big chunk of your mission payouts.
