Rockstar on GTA V: We need to think of characters and the city first

Monday, 16th November 2009 00:00 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Speaking in a interview with The Times, Rockstar co-president Dan Houser has admitted that they would need to think of the main location and the main characters for Grand Theft Auto V before it goes into pre-development.

It’s really the first we’ve heard of any kinds of development work in GTA V, although a location for the game was teased in the manual for stand-alone DLC disc Episodes from Liberty City.

“We’ll think of a city first, then the characters,” admitted Houser.

Houser also spoke out on the controversy overshadowing the initial banning of Manhunt 2 in the UK, before it was lifted in March last year.

“Manhunt 2 was not a good situation. When a game gets banned, it means we’re not doing our first job, of making the investors back their money.”

    Shit, the probably made more money from the banning than if it hadn’t been banned.

    So what he’s basically saying is “we haven’t started yet”. Which would translate to “it’s at least two years off yet” if he’s not spinning us a yarn. He’s probably dragging his heels just to show Pachter up again. :-D
