One widespread fan principle in regards to the new sport’s location is London, England. Sounds cool, however possibly not as in all probability as many would love. Lead Writer for Rockstar Games Dan Houser has beforehand acknowledged in an interview with The Guardian that although the concept of London appears interesting, that setting would not fairly work with the GTA components:

“I feel for us, my intestine feeling is, GTA London was cool for the time, however video games had been extra restricted then. These days I feel we’d like to set a sport within the UK, set in London, no matter, however I do not know if it might be a GTA sport. I feel there are many nice tales we might inform in regards to the UK, nice environments to showcase, nice gameplay mechanics that might have a UK bent to them – I simply do not suppose it might be a GTA essentially.”

He added, “There are so many video games we might prefer to make that we simply do not have the bandwidth to make in the intervening time. But we at all times suppose, properly the longer term is lengthy and various, and that is what the longer term’s for. Speaking for myself – and usually I’d be as militant about saying ‘we’ as a lot as doable, as a result of it definitely is not solely me in any respect, thank god – however my very own private feeling is that GTA is America. With this sport, I feel, we’re very proud of the situation. It allow us to do one thing iconic.”

That’s a fairly robust sentiment for preserving the franchise stateside, although wilder issues have occurred. Still, it is seemingly that the franchise will stick with a well-recognized consumer, impressed by Florida, New York and California areas. Since the sport is closely based mostly on Los Angeles, preserving it in that location mindset would make sense although Miami works simply as properly.

We’ve additionally heard murmurs of a Seattle location, although we could not get any kind of stable verification on that on the time this text was written.
