Imagine if you were playing the next-gen Grand Theft Auto and you were able to travel to Liberty City, Vice City and San Andreas? Well that’s what Rockstar Games are looking to do. In an interview with Digital Trends, Rockstar North president Leslie Benzies stated that he would like to see an explorable world that connects all cities from the Grand Theft Auto games,
“Of course at some point we would like to have one big world containing all our cities and let the player fly between them and revisit their favorite areas, and in that context reimagining Vice City would be very interesting.”
As any GTA player would know, each Grand Theft Auto game takes place in a different era, with Grand Theft Auto III set in 2001, Vice City in the late 80’s, San Andreas in the early 90’s and Grand Theft Auto 4 in the modern era.
Though the crossover in storylines from Grand Theft Auto III to San Andreas ceased in Grand Theft Auto 4.
While Rockstar has recently re-release a 10 year anniversary edition of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on the mobile, Benzies went on to say that there’s always a possibility that they’ll come back to the iconic city again,
“It is always a possibility. There are a few references to the city in our current-gen GTAs so it is part of that HD universe, and it is certainly somewhere we would love to revisit. However Vice City, perhaps more than any other GTA game, was as much about the era as the setting. Miami in the 1980’s is so iconic it would feel strange to revisit the city in a different time period.”
The next big game in the series Grand Theft Auto V is to be released next year.
