GTA V.. The Big One?

'It's the big one'
'..And a very big map'
then look at what the magazine says,
'Back to the series roots'
Who remembers the original GTA map? where you chose your City before you started playing.
Obviously I don't believe for a second that this generation of consoles is powerful enough to give a map the size of the USA, but what if they include Liberty City, Vice City and San Andreas, and let you fly between them (as many people have previously wondered).
This would be going back to the roots of the style of the original GTA map. Maybe if there is multiple protagonists, you play as a different one at the start of each city, and the stories link together.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 was interesting in that it had a new map but also included the old Hawaii map. I can't see any reason that GTA V could not include past locations.

Like you said today's consoles couldn't handle a map the size of the US and I doubt most people want to go back to LC so soon.

As much as GTA has to offer, I dont think that they could pull off all 3 cities in one game on this generation, without sacrificing graphics, long loading times and overall less quality of gameplay. Look at Just Cause 2.. very big map, but not much else to say about it.
In what other way could they mean Rockstar are going back to their roots?

i feel they are talking about the gta III era when 3rd person behind the character came in, that was the point gta games really took off and the fact San Andreas is back, but not necessarily San Fierro and Las Venturas. Im a bit 50/50 on that but we have to wait and see

I think Vice City will be done in GTA 6 - at least I hope it is, because if it's ignored I'm going to be seriously f*cked off at Rockstar.
Anyway, by Back to it's Roots - I think it just means the way the game use to be in the III Era.
I have a feeling Rockstar know, that no one liked the way IV was - because it was too realistic, the humour was gone, the game was dull - and that's not what GTA is about.

back to los santos. But I don't think that is what they mean when "go back to its roots".
Maybe it has something to do with the gang-system in II, when you had a couple of gangs and you could choose for who you wanted to do missions with, and the rating system ("Like-system")

I just don't think it could be possible because they don't want to split the game into 3 or more atmospheres. One game, one city/state.
