"Of course we're interested," Houser said. "But no, not in terms of 'GTA,' because we're always working on the current game. We look at the tech at a more practical level: what will be ready for which game that we're working on further down the line?"
Despite its massive size, "GTA V" developer Rockstar North only focuses on one title at a time. With the latest entry in the open-world crime franchise just released this week, it makes sense that the developer is not necessarily looking at a new entry just yet. There's still downloadable content to be released for "GTA V" and additional components of "GTA Online," which arrives Oct. 1.
Houser went on to say Rockstar is in contact with both Microsoft and Sony as they jockey to attract developers to their respective platforms. But he's not ready to discuss future plans, just yet.
"We get pitched by the hardware manufacturers on what they’re planning to do and our tech guys come up with ideas on how that could be used," he said. "Does this influence design decisions? Of course. But we’re not sat there fantasizing about 10 years down the line. We’re so busy with what we’re doing right now.”
