Wouldn't it be cool on maybe Next gen in GTA VI or something they remade the entire USA?
Not a full USA, but something smaller like "The Crew" did. Los Santos/San Fierro/Las Venturas by the West Coast, Liberty City by the East coast, Vice City in Florida, North Yankton up north, and add in a few more cities based on real life. (Chicago, Austin, Detroit etc)
Have it not TOO big, but just big enough so it would take you maybe an hour to get from Los Santos to Liberty City by car. And have a teleport kind of thing at each cities respective airport.
Imagine how good it would be if there was 64 players in one lobby, spread out over GTA's version of the Entire United States. If you wanted peace, move out to the desert. Want a secluded beach front home? Move somewhere inbetween cities and the smaller towns dotted around.
For me, a map like that with a storyline that spreads out across the whole country would be the ultimate GTA.
The Crew map:
Not even a PC would be able to handle this much. it would seriously kill the gaming rig.
Well the crew's debuting with the above map in a few months, which releases with Xbox One/PS4 and PC.
And it has been confirmed to be as open world as GTA. See a mountain? You can go over it.
Hell, if that's too much to handle then I'm sure the PS5 and Xbox Two? 720? Would have enough power to handle it.
As I said, it's not the entire USA, it's a smaller version of it. 100 or so square miles.
If Ubisoft can do it with a racing game, then we all know Rockstar could do it with GTA
