Where will the next GTA game be set? Could it be in another country?
There’s a lot of rumors and speculation about what GTA VI is going to be, and how it’ll evolve from the massively popular GTA V. There’s been a rumor going around that the game could actually leave the US (in terms of setting) and go to another country. But, Rockstar lead writer Dan Houser noted recently that this isn’t likely to happen.
“I think for us, my gut feeling is, GTA London was cool for the time, but games were more limited then. These days I think we would love to set a game in the UK, set in London, whatever, but I don’t know if it would be a GTA game. I think there are plenty of great stories we could tell about the UK, great environments to showcase, great gameplay mechanics that could have a UK bent to them – I just don’t think it would be a GTA necessarily.”
He added, “There are so many games we’d like to make that we just don’t have the bandwidth to make at the moment. But we always think, well the future is long and varied, and that’s what the future’s for. Speaking for myself – and normally I’d be as militant about saying ‘we’ as much as possible, because it certainly isn’t only me at all, thank god – but my own personal feeling is that GTA is America. With this game, I think, we’re very happy with the location. It let us do something iconic.”
