So basically a Narcos inspired thing with drug trafficking up from Pablo Escobar's private island, around the Carribean and into Miami? I'd be well up for that.

 

Yeah, could be amazing if R* finally figure out how to make a responsive third-person avatar, a way to free-aim a weapon accurately and some up-to-date mission design. At this stage I'd be happy with a pure GTAOnline sequel that can be played solo or with friends. That seems like the best hope for GTA getting back to its sandbox roots.

 

I've been wanting to see this setup since Michael Mann's Miami Vice film, which flits between Miami, Havana and other exotically dangerous Caribbean locations.

I doubt they’d want to take away that system to buy stuff though so they’ll have to add something else in. 


I think having to go to actual luxury car dealerships to buy cars is cooler than buying them online.

Will be really interesting to see if and how the tone changes now that Dan Houser and Lazlow are no longer there as they really were the head honchos of the writing team.

 

I think it was Dan Houser who said that parodying and satirising the present-day US was a bit pointless because it’s become so extreme and polarised under Trump that it seems like fiction itself. That suggested to me that they were looking at something a little different for GTA6.
 

No idea of the legitimacy of this supposed leak but I could well believe it. Would be great for the series to stretch beyond the US again.

 

I’ve loved all their games and their world-building is absolutely second to none and raises the bar each and every time, but they really really need to open up their restrictive mission design this time round. That shit just won’t fly anymore.

Hope springs eternal. They have made slow but steady progress on the mechanics of their games, apart from some dispute over whether the driving mechanics have progressed or regressed. The earlier 3D games were sub-par mechanically, but at least the latest one is semi-passable, given the scope.

 

Or maybe it's too much for anybody to take on in a single sprawling virtual reality project, no matter how many years or bodies you throw at the problem.

 

Though The Benz's upcoming game might offer a more interesting implementation of online multiplayer.

Someone hasn’t played RDR2. I know a lot of people like to say you’re supposed to be playing a big, slow character, but it really didn’t feel like progress to me. In fact, it felt like a step back from the original.

 

I hope they can move it forward though. I do love a bit of GTA.

I also haven't played the original so have zero point of reference for that, while I have played all 5 major 3D iterations of GTA (and the mainline 2D entries), and GTA V is the best mechanically, but still noticeably below dedicated mechanics games.

 

They've skipped an entire hardware generation so I think expectations should be set very high, no excuses about shit hardware holding the implementation back this time, just money now, and if anybody has the money to do a virtual world right, it's Rockstar.
