Dan Houser recently talked a little bit about the possibility of a futuristic setting for the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise, according to a report by OXM on Jan. 28. The vice president of Rockstar Games, who will be publishing the upcoming multiplatform title, “GTA 5,” revealed that they would like to make one based on a sci-fi setting but they currently do not have a “good reason” to do so. You can check out some screens from “GTA 5” in the slideshow at the top of this article and the comments from Dan Houser below (courtesy of OXM):
We have no interest in going into science fiction for the sake of flying cars and laser guns. The best science fiction stories are those that speak about the human condition. So while this idea is very tempting and, by definition, anything's possible in a videogame, we lack the essential thing for the moment: a good reason.
Rockstar North, a subsidiary of Rockstar Games, is currently developing “GTA 5” for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. The latest video game from the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise features several significant changes, the biggest of which is the ability to switch between the three main characters.
“GTA 5” is due to come out some time this spring for the two aforementioned consoles from Sony and Microsoft. You can pre-order the title in the following link: “GTA 5”
