If you thought that gaming had been perfected with Rockstar's recent release of GTA V, then you wouldn't be the only one. However, you would be the only one in a Rockstar office, as apparently the long standing developer is already brainstorming ideas for a sequel.
“We’ve got about 45 years worth of ideas we want to do,” said President of Rockstar North, Leslie Benzies while speaking to Develop in the first part of its Inside Rockstar article. “We don’t know what GTA VI will be, but we’ve got some ideas."
This can be put down to some ideas not being used in GTA V for one reason or another as well as long term gaming end-game thoughts. You know the kind we all have?
"Wouldn't it be cool if there was a world the size of the real world and I could go anywhere and do anything?"
That is obviously still quite a way off with current gaming technology and development practices, but it will be interesting to find out over the next few years what some of these sequel ideas are. It sounds like they might be quite multiplayer focused.
“GTA Online is the focus right now. There ain’t no rest between finishing V and then Online. Plus we have some other things – stuff, DLC, I don’t know how to describe it exactly – that we’d like to do, and we’ll pick the right ones."
What are some ideas you guys might have for a GTA V sequel? More vehicles? More characters? A bigger world?
Let's see who can come up with the most creative and viable idea.
