Beyond GTA V with next-gen and bigger worlds

By Alan Ng - Dec 17, 2012

GTA V is easily going to be one of the defining games of 2013 and may even go on to be the best game of next year as well, with the way the game is shaping up at the moment. While GTA V is looking like the best game in the series to date, it is going to be interesting to see how Rockstar aims to top that with an eventual successor on next-gen consoles. Some recent comments from Rockstar in an interview has given us a fantastic indication that the future looks bright for GTA fans, with hints that we may see a GTA title where every single city featured in the series will be merged into one massive world as part of a single game.

That is obviously the stuff of dreams for most GTA fanatics, though the task of putting the likes of Vice City, Los Santos and Liberty City all together in one space is a challenge that we’re sure Rockstar are going to love once they have figured out how to use next-gen consoles to the highest potential.

We believe that such a feat will be possible as well, as don’t forget Rockstar recently confirmed that the map size in GTA V is bigger than GTA IV, Red Dead Redemption and San Andreas combined. If they can squeeze a map that size into current consoles, just imagine what they will be able to do when next-gen consoles are out.

Rockstar North’s Leslie Benzies made the comments when speaking to DigitalTrends and added that they would like to let the player ‘fly between these areas’ and that remaking Vice City would be a ‘very interesting’ thing to do. Would you welcome the idea of being able to travel between each GTA city, or do you prefer the current format of keeping the cities separate in between each release?

It’s safe to assume that GTA 6 is going to be on next-generation consoles when the time is right to release, so will Rockstar be able to make this specific change for the next game after GTA V, or is it going to take them longer to implement all of the cities into one game?

It looks like we’re going to be blown away when we see the actual scale of GTA 5 up close and it is going to be amazing to think that Rockstar is planning to expand on this even further. As we wait for more official news from Rockstar, let us know your initial thoughts on a GTA game that includes all of the locations merged into one. Would it be the ultimate GTA game in your opinion?
