Rockstar has become one of the best-known game developers in the world thanks to the Grand Theft Auto series taking off like it has, and why not? GTA III helped to revolutionize games when it introduced that sandbox style of gameplay and soon every publisher was pushing their own “sandbox” games in a not-so-obscure attempt to make a run at Grand Theft Auto’s popularity. There have been a lot of pretenders, but no one has come close to knocking GTA off of its throne. While Rockstar has been revisiting a lot of the past GTA games and cities in some recent re-releases, the topic has come up about including these cities again in future games.
DigitalTrends sat down with Leslie Benzies to discuss the 10th anniversary of Vice City and he dropped a little nugget that will have fans salivating and speculating for a while; that Rockstar has always wanted to include all of the cities and regions in a GTA game, make it accessible via aircraft and allow players to explore them all. Maybe with technology advancing as it is this can be a possibility soon? Of course, the original GTA did include Liberty City, San Andreas and Vice City, but that was 1997 and it was a top-down 2D game with sprites and not fully-realized 3D.
