It has been known for some time that Grand Theft Auto V will be much bigger, and this environment will be filled with a lot of enhancements not seen in previous games, which at this time we can only guess from various vague interviews. It now seems that developers of the next Saints Row also understand the need for bigger and better, which follows some news that an expansion has been canceled and will now be a larger Saints Row 4 next year.
The head of THQ made their plans clear in a recent statement and this now means the expansions development will be incorporated into Saints Row 4, and should release at some point in 2013 with a game that aims to be the very best for fans. You can see the official statement below.
Rockstar has known that their fans want a much bigger experience and this is why they stated early on that GTA V would include much bigger maps, and fans have asked for customization, which includes pimping cars and other items to give the game more immersion. One thing we loved about previous Grand Theft Auto games had been the ability to just wander around the big map doing mindless things, and you could spend many hours doing this but imagine something much bigger and better?
These are also the words of THQ’s boss, he states above that they are delaying any new content for Saints Row to make it “bigger, better“, so it looks like both GTA V and Saints Row 4 are going for bigger and starting to follow a pattern they feel fans want.
Do you feel that bigger is better when it comes to upcoming games like Grand Theft Auto 5 and Saints Row 4? If you have any ideas for the next GTA and Saints Row games then feel free to leave a comment, especially if it concerns giving you more to do in these bigger environments.
