 Just read that GTA:O might have all the worlds from previous GTA games? or that's what it sounds like:

If they do add more cities they will have to allow more that 16 players online.

Eventually, yes.  It sounds like that's what they have in mind.  Awesome!

Think about it. If they were to put all the other maps in... then they'd make us pay for online. Recreating maps from a template (the other games) is hard enough but to ensure hidden locations, missions, and as much detail as V has would be a dick move to the devs. It would take years for something like that to happen. If GTA V goes next gen then there is enough power to possibly do something like that... But there would be loading times or something along that line.

 

I'd love for something like that, but what lacks in size pays off in detail.

 

Dan houser did want to do something like that, but only if next gen is used or PC

well yeah I didnt say I expect it on launch

 

But would be cool down the world to get all those worlds added

 

am wondering if they will be free or will be sold as DLC?

Why, exactly?

For sure GTA IV's rendition of Liberty City will be made available in the future. Not on October 1st but somewhere down the line. Vice City, etc. is probably not likely, unless they release a Vice City HD map in the future. GTA VI? :p

This. I think the IV map is ready to go. It's all "HD era" anyway, same engine, file formats etc.

But Rockstar is obviously not going to add quick reworks of the GTA III era maps. Aaron Garbut (art director since GTA III) even said that he hated them now because the maps were too simple. They could spend time on building a completely new city from scratch. CJ is dead.

Why do people read "We may one day want to go in this direction" and respond with "OMG! On release it will feature this!!"?

If they do make new areas or maps for GTA Online, they'll sell them seperately like EFLC for GTA IV.

 

EFLC was probably a test to see if that way of expansion was profitable enough to go forward with in the future. IDK what their results were but hopefully their tests say that it was.

 

Infact I'd expect the next GTA game to be sold in 2 editions. 1 as a $40 upgrade to the GTA Online portion of the story, where the GTA online portion of the game is a DLC download update to your copy of GTA V, and as a full $60 retail version with both the GTA Online map/missions activities, and the new single player story.

Not if they have players purchase a plane ticket and transition to another server when they board their flight.

They will likely have it all, Los Santos, Liberty City, Vice City etc. all in one world in GTA Online after it goes next gen.

If any one of you have heard of the game "The Crew", it's a free roam racing game that has the ENTIRE United States to drive in with no loading screen, able to go from New York to L.A. in one trip, so it's already being done, R* can very well do that with GTAO on Xbox One and PS4 too.

I don't think they will expand over 16 players on PS3/XBOX 360, so probably not for now.

Well how boring would it be if there are multiple giant cities and only 16 people roaming around? It's really a matter of preference. I personally really like online games to have a lot of people. And I do understand it may not be possible on current gen but still.

Just like others have said, if Gta V and Gta online,  go to next gen, and Pc  they can easily do this, if there future plans are to make an actual world,  I belive there gonna do it with  all our  favriote cities, maybe not sometime soon, but, down the road a few years I can see this,

I'm guessing it'll be the first expansion pack. I hope so, anyway. I REALLY hope we can fly from LS to LC.

There are a couple games out there that push well over 16 players on PS3 infrastructure, not sure what Xbox live handles because I blew mine up years ago.  PS3 side Mag has maps with either 128 or 256 players, and Battlefield 3 I believe goes up to 24 or 32.

 

That's not to say that R* is willing to push it, but it is possible at least on Sony servers.
