I genuinely believe that they could pull off a war game, GTA V itself contains all the usual stuff you'd expect from one.
I though would like to see them tackle the storyline in a way very few games do, instead of glorifying war they'd criticise it in a similar way to Spec Ops: The Line did. I honestly felt that I didn't like the game after finishing it, I didn't like playing it, not because of the gameplay which was above average with its environmental interactivity but because the storyline itself made me feel very, very uncomfortable. It was undoubtedly one of the best games of 2012 but would I recommend playing it? f*ck no. The game itself made me feel strangely sick whilst playing it, I detested every choice I made and everything I did but I played on in the hope that the narrative would pull a proverbial curve-ball and show me some light at the end of the tunnel.
I really think that if Rockstar were to tackle the "war" genre of gaming that's the angle that they'd go for, I'm almost certain of it. Rockstar doesn't follow the usual cliches that so many other game developers fall into, in fact I distinctly remember Dan Houser himself saying that they'd intentionally go against what's popular in gaming because they didn't like the idea of being part of the usual, mainstream gaming audience. So the likelyhood of them ever bothering to make a game in this particular genre's low already, but for them to go down the usual route of glorifying the battles and soldiers will not happen, Rockstar would almost certainly give us a dark haunting storyline that'd make us want to wash our hands after playing it.
Would I play it though? f*ck yes.
