​If Chicago is "not much different from Liberty City" than Vice City is not much different from Los Santos. That's just shallow reasoning. It's "pretty much an urban landscape the whole way through" clearly, you don't think Miami and LA is just the same "landscape the whole way through". Sunbelt and Rustbelt cities will be similar, my point this whole thread through is that if we play in Liberty City, a rustbelt-type city, and move to Los Santos, a sunbelt city, with palm trees, celebrities, plastic surgery, sandy beaches and warm tropical weather, do we really need the very next game, the sequel, to be in a near identical environment? If you really want to believe Chicaog/NYC are all that similar that's fine, it's your opinion, I can't take that away from you, but don't tell me that you want the same thing over an over again. They already did San Andreas, we got GTA V, they already did Vice City, do we really need another one? So you guys could complain how they didn't add anything new and it's just an old game updated with better features and graphics? They should take the franchise to uncharted territory, I.e. Chicago for example, and MANY others. Miami/Vice City is not the only place in the world.
 

I think another good reason for Vice City is the different kind of atmospheres.  It's Florida, so you can have beaches, Swamps, urban areas and sh*t like that.  Thinking about Chicago...it's not much different from Liberty City.  It's pretty much an urban landscape the whole way through, unless you can go wreak havoc in the suburbs.  Plus there's just something about the aesthetic of Miami that would be fun to play around in again in this crazy HD era.  I DO wonder what the absolute most diverse place would be on American soil.

If they did do Vice City again, I'd prefer them to just have it be the same version of Vice City from 02, just expanded and updated to w.e year it'd be from '86. Seeing as how the ps2 and HD are alternate universes though, it probably won't happen.

I really think Los Santos is the perfect setting for GTA.  I think they should keep Los Santos, and add new islands/cities, new buildings, change some things, add more detail etc.  They could keep the map from GTA 5, and just continue to improve on it.  The net result would be the biggest, best flipping map ever made!  And I would never get bored with the same map, as long as they change things and add to it.

 

EDIT:  And I hope they at least do a city with some countryside around it.  After Red Dead, Rockstar has become so good at making landscapes.  They're beautiful.  If you look at the mountains in GTA 5 from a decent distance, but where you can still see some detail, they look like they're straight from a photo.

What would Vice City, from a gameplay standpoint, in otherwords Miami, bring to the table that Los Santos didn't? If it was confirmed tomorrow, that GTA VI was Vice City 2, what would you want, what would expect? What makes it so great? Is there nowhere else in the whole US that you would rather free-roam, car-jacking, beating up people, running and fighting with the cops, doing drive by's?

Vice City, Las Venturas or San Fierro.

 

 

I don't want them to ruin the series by starting a new map from scratch without completing the original 2D and 3D settings. Could even go back to London as a DLC.

Vice City!

Like I posted in a less desirable topic: This is my GTA future dream.

 

A new GTA comes out every year or at least every 18 months. I'm 29 years old and if Rockstar releases a new game every 6 years, than that means we can play another 5 titles or so in our LIVES. For this fantastic game it is simply to less. They need 1 billion costs, than they can produce 4 times faster as GTA 5. So please count the profit from GTA 5, start doing math and seek for investors or just put the money on the table when GTA 5 makes 10 times more than it cossed. Thank you Rockstar.

 

My wishlist of GTA:

 

GTA 6: Vice City (released 2015)

- Pro's: No comments. Vice City was fantastic in '80's style and will be fantastic in 80's style.

- Expension: Everglades: I see missions were airplanes from columbia dropping packs of cocaine in the Everglades. I see missions were alligators are in it. Miami harbour: Boats filled with cocaine coming in. Florida Keys: Lot of things to do and do crimes. Second city in the game: Tampa Bay. Third city in this game: Orlando with all amusement parks. Nasa platform: Missions of sabotaging rockets or something like that.
No's: no no's for Vice City.

 

GTA 7: Amsterdamned (released 2016)
- Pro's: Marihuana - streets filled with hookers - diamond trading - over 150 nationalities - rich parts, poor parts, historical/cultural city - football hooliganism - lots of canals - big airport (Schiphol) - to the east: A big lake named IJsselmeer - tot the west: a smaller city named Haarlem which borders the North Sea - I'm from Holland.

- Expension: City of Rotterdam as the second city in the game. With the biggest harbour in the world this would be Europe's distribution center for cocain, heroin, XTC. Also a lot of hooligans wit 3 stadiums. Big Sea missions. A small airport. A big swamp is also near Rotterdam.

- No's: It's in Holland, not in America.

 

GTA 8: Chicago 1931 (released 2017)

Pro's: History of mobsters and crime related to alcohol - Lake Michigan - Historic and big city - Bad poilitics - 2 airports - This GTA game takes us way back for once to a time an automobile was not common.

Expension: City of Detroit with their automobile industry just beginning in that time - A healthy variety of crimes all over the place - Another lake - Bordering Canada. Third and small City of Milwaukee. The most important thing in this game is that you can travel by land, plane or on water to all three of the cities. (lakes are connected) Especially the water ways are nice. I see a lot of cool missions coming and a great landscape while going on boat with no open sea.

No's: I can't think of any.

 

GTA 9: Las Vegas (released 2018)

Pro's: Casino's - Hookers - Maffia - Gangs - Big city in a dessert - Nice lake not to far away - Area 51 (69) not very far away - Celebrities performing.

Expension: Hoover Dam and Dessert missions.

No's: No no's for this fantastic city, this game speaks for itself.

 

GTA 10: Boston (released 2019)

Pro's: Irish maffia missions and lots of them - Bordering the ocean - Big airport.

Expension: Portland (Maine) as a small city in the game. It's surrounded completely with water and can be reached by plane, boat and vehicles. Further to the north there are hills with lots of wildlife missions. To the nortwest there are a few snowey mountains wit some decent missions for it. Than Cape Cod just south of Boston with several missions and ability to travel to by boat or vehicle. The nicest thing about this game is that it would be on one shoreline and very accesible by boats.
No's: No no's

 

2020: Next gen Playstation 5 released ! (no GTA release)

 

GTA 11: The Northwest. Seattle - Vancouver (Canada) - Salt Lake City - Portland Oregon (released 2021)
Pro's: The biggest game ever by far! In this game the four city's mentioned above are in one game. With beautiful landcapes - big mountains - desserts - forests - airports in 4 city's - sea - lakes etc. This game has everything. This is the game were Rockstar sells 500 million copies from. Even for a hardcore GTA-gamer it takes about 2 years to complete only the storyline if he plays it every day for at least two hours, 7 days a week. In this part of USA, Rockstar can prove what they are capable of with graphics (due to fantastic scenery) and how big a game can be and will be in the future.

Expension: Nothing

No's: Hell no!

 

GTA 12: Liberty City (released 2023)

Pro's: Back to the roots - Next gen shows us Liberty City in all it's beauty - everything Liberty City has offered us in the past and presence.

Expension: A fifth Island comes within the city limits - East of the airport is Long Island bordering the sea, not the airport - Northwest of the City begins upstate New York, again witth beautiful scenery's, mountains and a few small city's like Albany. West of the city, a landscape with a few hills and some exiting missions - 4 airports (2 NYC, 1 Newark, 1 Upstate NY) - Ability of going by boat over the Hudson upstream upstate New York.

No's: Liberty City......again.

 

GTA 13: San Fransisco (released 2024)

Pro's: Maffia crime's - Gays - Hippie culture - Sillicon Valley - Very big city with Oakland, San Jose and the Silicon Valley area within the game - The City surround the big San Fransisco Bay - San Fransisco lies on the seashore as well - Beautiful landscape again, with San Fransisco Bay in the center, surrounded by concrete of the cities and behind that spectacular mountains with a high variety.
Expension: nothing
No's: No no's

 

GTA 14: Philadelphia (released 2025)

Pro's: Lots of crimes in Philadelphia and the bordering town of Camden NJ - Maffia - A river devides NJ from Philly - Nuclear power plant accros river, under Camden - Aggresssive Amish people to the southwest in a farming landscape - East of Philly/Camden are the woods and behind that the seashore - On the seashore are only Snooky/Pauly D look-a-likes.

Expension: Wilmington Delaware as a small city south of Philly and with lots of crime and creditcard companies doing crimes and stuff.

No's: no no's.

 

GTA 15: GTA only (release 2027)

Pro's: The biggest game by far. A harcore GTA gamer needs at least 4 years of playing to complete only the storyline missions. That's if he plays for 2 hours each day, 7 daus a week and 4 years long. This game has EVERY game you see above including Amsterdam + Los Santos (new next gen style). So 11 cities. The only possible way by getting in another city is by plane.
Expansion: Nothing
No's: Hell no.

2027: Next gen Playstation 6 released !
This is not a console. This is a kind of room you can buy with the newest technologie. Persons are actually IN the game, not in front of a TV. 
Rockstar needs 5 years to make the biggest game ever.

GTA 16: America (released 2032)
Pro's: Everything of GTA America, but with every town America has to offer. This game consists all of the USA, including Canada. Hundreds of cities (based on real cities), thousands of towns and thousands of villages. It's a copy of Google-maps USA. Rocky Mountains, Apelachen, Snow, Forrests, Shorelines, Desserts, Swamps etc. Every city is accessable by plane, road, train and boat (only not from west to east). A player can decide to drive from Oklahoma City to Denver and spends hours of driving thru beautiful landscapes, coming only thru a few towns. On this scale I mean it. Faster traveling can be done by plane (with skip button or taxi with skip button). Think of all the possibilities people.... A hardcore player has to play at least 5-10 years to complete the storyline missions. That's every day for at least 2 hours.

GTA 17: World (released 2035)

Use your imagination, not ammunation.

 

 

I think only two things could happen in the future:

1: Rockstar does everything in it's power to do something like this, while maintaining quality and satisfying us with different city's and a high frequency of releasing new games for us. Than there will be at least 500 million people playing GTA's and they are willing to pay double the money for every single game as they now do. Rockstar will be the best company in this world.

2: Rockstar doesn't do anything. Every 6 years a new game, repeating Liberty City, Los Santos, and maybe if we're lucky Vice City. Then ANOTHER game company will fill this gap, because demand is rising like never before. Ubisoft for example.

Please let it be Rockstar....

I'm not sure if they can or can't do a GTA every year for the next decade or so, but you do make a good point how the rate at which they have release the previous couple of games is way too long in between that they won't be able to get the most out of the franchise. Also, let me just say that is quite the reply you gave. You poured your heart out so we, at least I do, owe you a response as well.

One thing though, not sure if you were aware of this already, but Rockstar probably won't use these ACTUAL cities, at least not their names, in upcoming games. Any city their future games will be set in will definitely be based on real-world cities, just like how Liberty City is basically New York, Vice City and Los Santos are just their version of the real-world counterparts.

My text will be in red.

Vice City!

Like I posted in a less desirable topic: This is my GTA future dream.

Nasa platform: Missions of sabotaging rockets or something like that.
No's: no no's for Vice City.

 

Wait a minute, you want them to essentially re-release GTA Vice City? Why should it take place in the 80's on top of already being set in a familiar, I mean same exact location as before? That seems like a waste of time and resources. Lol "No no's for Vice CIty"? IT's just THAT GREAT huh?

 

GTA 7: Amsterdamned (released 2016)
- Pro's: Marihuana - streets filled with hookers - diamond trading - over 150 nationalities - rich parts, poor parts, historical/cultural city - football hooliganism - lots of canals - big airport (Schiphol) - to the east: A big lake named IJsselmeer - tot the west: a smaller city named Haarlem which borders the North Sea - I'm from Holland.

- No's: It's in Holland, not in America.

 

I can't say anything critical about this, fantastic idea and well fleshed out.

 

GTA 8: Chicago 1931 (released 2017)

Pro's: History of mobsters and crime related to alcohol - Lake Michigan - Historic and big city - Bad poilitics - 2 airports - This GTA game takes us way back for once to a time an automobile was not common.

(lakes are connected) Especially the water ways are nice. I see a lot of cool missions coming and a great landscape while going on boat with no open sea.

No's: I can't think of any.

 

I was thinking of a modern Chicago but it's nice to know someone other than me wants a GTA based on Chicago. Even if we differ on interpretation, I totally support your idea here because you nailed some of the key aspects that make Chicago distinct from anywhere else and worthy of a GTA-inspired city.

 

GTA 9: Las Vegas (released 2018)

Pro's: Casino's - Hookers - Maffia - Gangs - Big city in a dessert - Nice lake not to far away - Area 51 (69) not very far away - Celebrities performing.

Expension: Hoover Dam and Dessert missions.

No's: No no's for this fantastic city, this game speaks for itself.

 

I enjoyed Fallout New Vegas and I'm positive Rockstar by 2018 will be able to do more with it than they did, I like it. 

 

GTA 10: Boston (released 2019)

Pro's: Irish maffia missions and lots of them - Bordering the ocean - Big airport.

Expension: Portland (Maine) as a small city in the game. It's surrounded completely with water and can be reached by plane, boat and vehicles. Further to the north there are hills with lots of wildlife missions. To the nortwest there are a few snowey mountains wit some decent missions for it. Than Cape Cod just south of Boston with several missions and ability to travel to by boat or vehicle. The nicest thing about this game is that it would be on one shoreline and very accesible by boats.
No's: No no's

 

I don't know much about Boston so I can't comment on it, other than the fact that I think Rockstar could do better. I would put many other places ahead of Boston.

 

2020: Next gen Playstation 5 released ! (no GTA release)

 

GTA 11: The Northwest. Seattle - Vancouver (Canada) - Salt Lake City - Portland Oregon (released 2021)
Pro's: The biggest game ever by far! In this game the four city's mentioned above are in one game. With beautiful landcapes - big mountains - desserts - forests - airports in 4 city's - sea - lakes etc. This game has everything. This is the game were Rockstar sells 500 million copies from.

Expension: Nothing

No's: Hell no!

 

Well you are definitely an educated and intelligent individual, to be a foreigner and yet know so much about American cities and the surrounding environments/lanscape. I would totally buy this game. 

 

GTA 12: Liberty City (released 2023)

Pro's: Back to the roots - Next gen shows us Liberty City in all it's beauty - everything Liberty City has offered us in the past and presence.

Expension: A fifth Island comes within the city limits - East of the airport is Long Island bordering the sea, not the airport - Northwest of the City begins upstate New York, again witth beautiful scenery's, mountains and a few small city's like Albany. West of the city, a landscape with a few hills and some exiting missions - 4 airports (2 NYC, 1 Newark, 1 Upstate NY) - Ability of going by boat over the Hudson upstream upstate New York.

No's: Liberty City......again.

 

So no qualms about playing in Vice City again but you seem down about playing in Liberty City, on a future generation console that hasn't even been conceived of yet? Hm, not sure what to make of that. Only thing I would add is that whether it's Xbox One or the next, they should try and make Liberty City as big as actual New York City. It doesn't have to look the same, but New York City Proper s over 450 sq miles, that's massive, nearly twice that of Chicago, and much much bigger than any other city. And that was my main gripe with GTA IV, in that it was based on the Flag Ship of American Cities, America's largest and most populous city, and it it didn't even feel half as big as Chicago. The place felt empty and dead, it was rather boring, and frankly, Los Santos in GTA V hasn't been much of an improvement in that regard.

 

GTA 13: San Fransisco (released 2024)

Pro's: Maffia crime's - Gays - Hippie culture - Sillicon Valley - Very big city with Oakland, San Jose and the Silicon Valley area within the game - The City surround the big San Fransisco Bay - San Fransisco lies on the seashore as well - Beautiful landscape again, with San Fransisco Bay in the center, surrounded by concrete of the cities and behind that spectacular mountains with a high variety.
Expension: nothing
No's: No no's

 

Hey, if LA is an acceptable city to base a Rockstar game on, I think San Francisco gets a pass as well. If they made the game like you suggested with the Northwest with Seattle, Vancouver and Portland, then there is no shortage of activities to do and places to see. I'm down, I like it.

 

GTA 14: Philadelphia (released 2025)

Pro's: Lots of crimes in Philadelphia and the bordering town of Camden NJ - Maffia - A river devides NJ from Philly - Nuclear power plant accros river, under Camden - Aggresssive Amish people to the southwest in a farming landscape - East of Philly/Camden are the woods and behind that the seashore - On the seashore are only Snooky/Pauly D look-a-likes.

Expension: Wilmington Delaware as a small city south of Philly and with lots of crime and creditcard companies doing crimes and stuff.

No's: no no's.

 

Could be interesting, I never been to Philadelphia but I love the TV show "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", not they necessarily show a broad spectrum of what it's like, I would still like to play GTA in it. Although I see myself putting in GTA 8. 9, 11 or 13 in this hypothetical timeline.

 

I can't comment on your other stuff, that's your ambitious fantasies, I don't have anything to say regarding it, I don't want to burst your bubble and I don't really have anything to add to it.

I know from a friend who lives in Phoenix that it doesn't have the night life like larger cities such as NYC and Chitown do, and is not nearly as big as either of these titans.

 

or san antonio 

What's San Antonio like? Why do you suggest it? Do you live there or know someone there?

Thanks for your nice comments an thinking with me.

The idea behind another Vice City is that I want to have 'the feeling' of the previous game. You're right: It is just THAT good. Another reason is Florida. I see nice missions and beautiful graphics with the Everglades and the Islands in this game. Especially if you know how important the Everglades (and the Miami harbour) were in the past for Columbian powder industries. Than 7 or 8 amusement parks with a city based on Orlando would also be nice. The space center on the seashore seems very inviting for 2 or 3 missions with that. I was thinking of a mission were you have to sabotage a rocket or shuttle and it explodes in the air. And 1 or 2 in space (submissions but in story-line). For exapmple: You have to get aboard of a shuttle and sabotage a satelite or something like that.

 

Liberty City: You're right about the size. That's the main reason Liberty City has to be in it. For a city that big it feels empty. They need a much bigger city so they can create the good feeling. And I would love to see the city expanded with rural areas's to the north (upstate), an extra Island, and little expensions to the west and east. But you're right about my feeling right now. "Not again"... but in 10 years from now I think I feel differently and I would love to see the real Liberty City on a NYC scale.

 

Than your idea of putting San Fransisco in the game with Seattle/Vancouver/Portland/Salt Lake City: I LIKE THIS!
So that would mean we cancel GTA: 13 San Fransisco and make it GTA: Los Santons (again, but different). Los Santos has three cities. L.A.-San Diego and Phoenix.

 

Thanks for the flattering reaction about education and intelligency. Truth is that I'm not that educated at all and I'm far from intelligent.

Keep brainstorming.

masachusetts and Boston area. big irish culture and a goldmine for satire and fun accents.

 

but that's probably my "The Departed" fanboyism talking. also the boston bombing may have put that dream on hold, which sucks.

 

realistically though, the game will probably take place in these places:

  • san francisco/fierro
  • detroit
  • chicago
  • miami/vice city (i really hope not)
  • las vegas/venturas

the one thing i hope for is a different time period. let's face it, GTA in modern times isnt exactly very iconic. yes, in 20 years time, it will resemble our internet booming culture, but right now, it can't stand out. maybe re-visit the 90's or even 70's. the more that i think about it, the 70's would be great. who knows. this is definitely a fun topic, and it's sad that most likely we won't see another GTA till 2016/17, 15 if we're lucky.

I would love to see Vice City remade in HD universe like the other cities featured. But contrasting to the specs of eight-generation consoles, maybe they should feature another city. Would love to see GTA set in two locations.

The new GTA is probably in Chicago since Chicago is in the national news a lot. The next GTA's location needs to be selected on the merit of crime, not that gay ass sh*t about people wanting to go to the beach and scuba dive.

 

 

​If Chicago is "not much different from Liberty City" than Vice City is not much different from Los Santos. That's just shallow reasoning. It's "pretty much an urban landscape the whole way through" clearly, you don't think Miami and LA is just the same "landscape the whole way through". Sunbelt and Rustbelt cities will be similar, my point this whole thread through is that if we play in Liberty City, a rustbelt-type city, and move to Los Santos, a sunbelt city, with palm trees, celebrities, plastic surgery, sandy beaches and warm tropical weather, do we really need the very next game, the sequel, to be in a near identical environment? If you really want to believe Chicaog/NYC are all that similar that's fine, it's your opinion, I can't take that away from you, but don't tell me that you want the same thing over an over again. They already did San Andreas, we got GTA V, they already did Vice City, do we really need another one? So you guys could complain how they didn't add anything new and it's just an old game updated with better features and graphics? They should take the franchise to uncharted territory, I.e. Chicago for example, and MANY others. Miami/Vice City is not the only place in the world.
 

I think another good reason for Vice City is the different kind of atmospheres.  It's Florida, so you can have beaches, Swamps, urban areas and sh*t like that.  Thinking about Chicago...it's not much different from Liberty City.  It's pretty much an urban landscape the whole way through, unless you can go wreak havoc in the suburbs.  Plus there's just something about the aesthetic of Miami that would be fun to play around in again in this crazy HD era.  I DO wonder what the absolute most diverse place would be on American soil. 

 

 

Yeah that whole argument is retarded as f*ck, Cali and Florida are the same place. I've been to Miami, Orlando, and Jacksonville. Half of these motherf*ckers on this site NEVER TRAVEL but always open their mouths to speak on which places should have GTAs. The only reason people are saying GTA 6 should be Vice City is because they are comfortable with the NY-LA-MIA rotation, hypothetically speaking had Rockstar never made Vice City these same people who clamor for Miami now probably wouldn't even consider Miami an ideal location, vice versa if Rockstar hypothetically created a Chicago game in the past, these same dudes acting like Chicago wouldn't be good would be begging for a Chicago game.

 

There are two kinds of GTA fans, reactionary fans and proactive fans. The reactionary fans lack creativity, and they can never think beyond what Rockstar has already created. Simple minded motherf*ckers literally cannot comprehend a world outside LC-LS-VC solely because Rockstar made it that way. Whereas proactive fans challenge the conventions of the current GTA world, recognizing that the current world is LC-LS-VC, yet at the same time realizing that it DOESNT have to be that way and that change can be made. If Rockstar went back in time and took VC out the rotation and replaced it with Chicago, Texas, or some other place these dudes wouldn't question it. They only question locations that haven't been done because they are simple minded gerber food eating, baby ass motherf*ckers with preschool level creativity.

I want a fictional setting, something R* created all by themselves with no based upon city. A normal yet advanced city, county or whatever. Surrounding geographies of forests and deserts, swamps bla bla bla- no accuracy, just a fun map R* created. A fictional setting with fictional gangs. Yes, it can be in the same universe as Liberty City and Los Santos, but it's just it's own city!

I know the game's only been out for a week, but a lot of you had to be thinking of it already. Now if it were up to you, where would you want to play GTA at?

See me, my first R* game was GTA 2, I never played Vice City or San Andreas so I can understand the hardon you guys have for LA, but I would choose Chicago. I live in Chicago, and if you haven't lived here there's no way you can appreciate how big it is, and there is plenty to do here even if it isn't as big as NYC (since people love to make that comparison), about as much as they put in the previous couple of GTA titles, certainly from a gameplay stand point. My main reasons are because, firstly, Chicago is many ways is unique, instantly recognizable, massive in its own right and besides, cities like LA and NYC have been done death in a seemingly endless loop of pop culture, from video games to movies, if you haven't noticed by now. 

It has the character, it has the scale, it has the scope, it has the beauty to be the play ground of the next GTA title to be released some years from now. Do you agree? Have a different city in mind? What do you think? Tell me in the comments section.

 
 

No, Chicago is a big NO-NO! Watch Dogs is set in Chicago, so Ubisoft would be able to sue R* for copying.

 

If I had my say, I would want modern day version of Red Dead Redemption map.

 

 

You're sh**ing me right?

I would love a Las Vegas one. A whole city to go gambling. That would be fun. Area 51 can be in there. 

 

I mean heres the area of Las Vegas: https://maps.google....ved=0CCoQ8gEwAA

Since GTA is all about the "American satire", they probably won't go anywhere beside the United States. But, what if they did an American town AND a European/Asian city to that? Like, they could make Vice City and Cuba combination!

LC and SA (partially at least) have received their HD versions. Vice City deserves to get one too.

VC I guess, like most other people want.

They could expand it to include Florida-type countryside. Imagine swamplands and rivers with alligators.

And again, I hope it's back in the 80s. Sure it's been done already but Benzies himself said that it's not just ht elocation but also the time period that made GTA VC what it is - and Miami was mostly relevant in the 80s. Sure, there is stuff like CSI Miami but it's just not the same. Besides, it would feel too much like the LS we just got in V to many so they got to make it more interesting.

I chose "None of the above" in the poll. I want fictional city, Carcer City, based on a mixture of Detroit, Chicago and the other 'Rust Belt' cities in the US.

The setting will be perfect for the gloomy, seedy post-recession US economic decline theme. I am sure most have seen the videos on YouTube about the ridiculous decline of Detroit.

The game will be set in the near future, when other US cities start facing economic hardships, people lose their jobs, and some start to move into the abandoned, derelict neighbourhoods of Carcer City. This is already happening to a degree now:

 

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=NZ5ZgmjuTt8

 

Cacer city simply won't have the resources to look after itself properly, even before the new influx of people. You will get lots of Libertarian, independant, survivalist-type communities springing up in the once abandoned urban slums.

Add to that some of the crazy gangs seen in the Manhunt series. Then there is the re-emergence of organised crime thatnks to inadequate policing.

Now you have a setting ripe for a new GTA!

 

By the way, I am surprised so many people want a Miami/Vice City setting again.

Wont we kinda know what to expect in that setting - the beaches, Little Havana etc...?

And a lot want it to be set in the 1980's again, which has definately already been done - twice!

I just don't understand why people want the same old setting rather that a new one.

 

I can understand how past GTA games were awesome, and how the impacted us, and how we enjoyed them. But those great feelings cannot be remade by redoing the same setting - the sense of a new place, culture and atmosphere to explore, and the shock we get as soon as we play the game - they willall be gone if it is Vice City again.

The game will simply be GTA VC in HD with new missions and characters. All that great feeling of being in a completely new place will be lost.

Vice City is my #1 choice, but Las Venturas would be also great.

I have three locations in my mind for the  next GTA:

 

Hawaii: A unique and interesting island to explore, a good chance to add features never seen before in GTA. I think story wise you could play as a mid level Yakuza, come to help your gang in a war against the Triads of the island.

 

Texas-Mexico border: Relevant to today's world, this game would look at all aspects of the war on drugs. It would have 3 protagonists, a black drug dealer trapped in a cycle of petty violence in his Houston ghetto; a white man brutally carving out a drug empire in rural Texas and a Mexican Cartel member, trying to escape his life of violence in Ciudad Juarez.

 

Chicago-Detroit-Canadian border: In this you'd play as a black gangster, fighting a brutal war in his crumbling hometown of Detroit.

Honestly, I agree with most, VC does deserve an HD remake, but in all honesty I would go with Chicago if I could, my favorite city, hands down.

 

Then again, it would be quite easy to do Hawaii because it is in essence an island, so we wouldn't be wondering about how the city is on an island totally away from everything else.
