Next-Gen Grand Theft Auto Tid Bit



Next-Gen Grand Theft Auto Tid Bit

Karl Winters with Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of developer Rockstar Games, wasn't willing to reveal exact plans for the next-gen installment of GTA, but the quote below does leave open the possiblity for the next installment to be on a next-generation console. More on this when it comes available.
"Take-Two's report also offered some tantalizing tidbits of grist for the rumor mill by revealing several previously unknown, currently unidentified games. The third quarter of its 2006 fiscal year will see "a sequel of a Rockstar brand" ship, while the overall year will see "two new titles for the PSP system."

Last but definitely not least, Take-Two's next fiscal year will see "extensions of the Grand Theft Auto franchise" on unidentified platforms, according to its earnings report. But when asked by analysts if this meant a new console GTA was coming next year, chief financial officer Karl Winters demurred, saying only, "We haven't announced that yet ... [we have] no announcement beyond PSP Grand Theft Auto.""

They're not going to use a real city. Not going to happen. San Andreas had areas so similar to Vegas that it hurt...yet they didn't want to. They were looking at the option and scrapped it. Real cities = real inaccuracies. Nobody wants to spend 45 minutes driving through a "real" city to get to a mission, so they make realistic but fake ones.
San Andreas was realistic, but everything was on a 1/5 scale to avoid pointless driving through filler space.
I'd suspect they'll either have an entire country (split into different 6-7 cities or levels)or maybe a whole region of the US. We could also see a European flair with multiple countries.
They have to top San Andreas. They know it and so do we. SA had 3 full cities (and surrounding areas), so they're going to have to at least double that to make a true next-gen game.

ya know i really dont think that the next gta would be in london,NY,
or anyother major and minor cities.
because if you look at GTA3 vice city and sanandreas are'nt actual maps of realcities. And what I think is rockstar put this little
phoney picture to make people think just like in the gameinformer they put "GTASINCITY".
