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

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.”
