So, this question has been pondering in my mind for a while now, and I thought you guys would like to leave some of your thoughts or opinions about the matter. So please, feel free to let your voice be known. icon14.gif

What do you think will happen to GTAF when the GTA franchise ends?

What has happened to the VC section now that it's ended? People are still playing it and for as long as they are, there'll always be discussion. It will eventually dry up of course but let's hope that doesn't happen (for the sanity of the V generation).

Over time people will get bored of it though, which seems like will end GTAF all together. That's just my opinion.

This December will mark my 10th year coming here. It'll be a sad day when either the site goes down, or I realize nobody really comes around anymore. The thing is, GTA V is set to be released this year, which means it'll come out next year. That means years of modding, years of request for a site like this. I'd say even if GTA V is the last of the series, this forum could last out the remainder of the decade. By then I'll be in my mid 30s and wondering what the f*ck I've done with my life that I'm still here for almost 20 years

Mass hysteria, riots in the street, self immolation, poo smeared over walls in protest, a total break down of law and order. It will inevitably be blamed on "those bloody immigrants".

I love you.

But I don't think the GTA franchise will end anytime soon. As long as they make a f*cking killing off of V I don't see why they would stop making new ones.

What do dogs and cats have to do with Grand Theft Auto? And unless you plan on living less than 15 years longer, it seems pretty plausible to happen in our lifetime's..

^Classic comic Bill Murray line from 1984's Ghostbusters, please do make sure to see that film! ASAP

Anyway, there are other forums, about other things, but Rockstar and GTA are here to stay

I imagine we'll disappear after about five years. Slamman will still be here though, probably after a mental break down, talking to himself and only himself.

It'd be renamed "The Lounge forums" and the lounge topics would be the main thing on the forusm.

But no it would most likely die over a course of a few years, with only a few people poping in now and then to say high or to reminise over GTA.

I believe they'll change GTAForums to another Rockstar Games' franchise, won't be anything related to Saints Row. BETTER question is if Volitions's SR will survive longer then Grand Theft Auto!! A-ha!!?!

Considering that forums exist for long dead games that weren't nearly as popular as GTA is, I'm sure not much will change, except perhaps the loss of some of the "only interested in the next game" members.

Try to imagine mass paranoia and such that revolved around Y2K. Yeah, that's what it will be like here. People will post thousands of SPAM topics, to quote Stu - Poo will be thrown, and we will all witness the eventual apocalyptic death of GTAF.

Considering GTA is their biggest franchise and they're only onto their second next-gen game with it. I'm sure we'll have plenty more GTA games to come.

I'm sure when the GTA Franchise does end, as it probably will one day, when Then I guess other forums will be around like this one.

Well This place stayed alive for 12 years now? (almost?)

I don't see it dying anytime soon, this place has more history than the natural history museum, GTA will stay alive for a decade to come maybe after that it'll end, Rockstar would end? we never know what will happen we can only wait.

Now Slamman put up a good question. Would Grand Theft Auto live or Saints Row live longer, time will tell.

But, if Five (V) is as bad as Four (IV) was then how much longer?
Maybe a shift to Red Dead Redemption ilk (turn of the 19th century stories)?
Just a simple shift of Subject. Forums can conform to current subject matter or wither away, as I've seen at least three do.
But, as long as San Andres is still pulling in members icon14.gif

I don't think R* has any plans to scrap arguably their biggest franchise game so i'm not worried, even if sh*t happened and the site went down i'd still be able to chat to my many good friends i've made here on facebook and the likes.

Indeed. It's great to share the experience and excitement with other GTA fans, but I don't come here just because it's a GTA forum, it's the community I come here for, even the V regulars, they provide the most entertainment. So I think even if GTA were finished this forum would still be strong.

Like all games, there will always be fans, and those fans will always need a place to argue over which protag is better or which GTA has better graphics, or who found what easter egg, and that will be here.

GTA V will probably be the last game for the current generation of consoles, but there could be an "Episodes from Los Santos" or "Los Santos Stories" type sequel you never know.

I'd imagine, if R* quit the GTA franchise, this forum will still be buzzing. There is always something to talk about in GTA games, even with San Andreas and Vice City.

Plus even if R* do "retire" the franchise, like others have said people come here for more than just GTA. And surely it would only be a matter of time before it's brought back in any case. I could see them taking a break with GTA for a decade or something like that, but surely they would HAVE to bring it back eventually. Things like making HD remakes of games is also gaining popularity, so even if they don't bring out a new game there's always things like that which will keep people coming.

People will be still playing with other GTAs or just troll this forums. A regular activity.

My thoughts exactly.
