That's exactly what I meant too. I can't see it working without having to connect the two cities to Los Santos, so it would have to be an expansion pack to V, not a new set of separate games altogether. Rockstar could do whatever they want at the end of the day, but personally I don't see them doing what you suggested.
I dont see why they would have to connect them at all, also it makes sense for them to expand on either San Ferrio or Las Venturas rather than making a new Liberty City or even a Vice City which wouldnt really work assuming that it would be in a modern Setting
Because SF and LV are both in the same state as LS. All 3 cities have a history of being connected in GTA because of SA. I cannot see Rockstar going against that by making a completely new game for SF and LV. It's still possible, but I personally doubt it.
Vice City would definitely work in a modern day setting, Miami is still a city that's poppin' in big way in terms of everything to offer a prime GTA setting. Don't even start to tell me that bullsh*t about "VC won't work unless it's set in the 1980s, and it's already been done", because I strongly disagree with that. Not everything about VC or Miami for that matter must revolve around the 1980s.
Yet they have already gone against it by making Los Santos by itself in V you could easily say how could they make Los Santos without San Fierro or Las Venturas in V
You need to forget what it was like in San Andreas, after all this is a new 'universe'. As for Miami in modern times I couldn't see them doing that right after doing Los Angeles as I dont see how they would differ that much as opposed to Las Vegas or San Francisco would
Yes, Rockstar made Los Santos by itself because it's based on LA. When it came to those three cities, Rockstar were always much more likely to do a single city based on LA, than a single city based on San Francisco (San Fierro) or Las Vegas (Las Venturas), because LA has the most to offer in every way for a prime GTA setting, it's got the popular culture, the glamour, the high crime rate and huge well-known gang scene, it's got everything. So really, I'm not too surprised that Rockstar chose to do Los Santos on it's own. San Fierro on it's own would seem pretty boring - San Francisco is not as well-known as LA, and it's local gang and organized crime scene is not exactly world-notorious either. Las Vegas with it's history of Mafia associations could be done by itself as Las Venturas, but let's face it, the Mafia there are hardly mentioned or talked about these days, and it's possible that they may even be extinct out there. Other than that, LV would have not much else to offer apart from crimes to do with gambling and casinos, so I can't see that working as just one city. But this is just my opinion, even if I strongly believe in it.
The only thing Miami and LA have in common is the bright, sunny weather and palm trees. Even then, Miami has a sub-tropical climate and appearance, which LA does not have. LA has more of a warm and dry Mediterranean climate and appearance. The two cities have completely different physical looks, structure and layout. Miami is positioned on both islands and a strip on the mainland separated by many lakes, rivers, swamps, and lagoons, while LA is surrounded by mountainous areas and dry, semi-desert. On top of that, Miami and LA have very different social setting, cultures, nightlife and demographics, apart from the fact that they both have huge Latino populations, and there are big differences there too - Miami is well-known for it's Cubans and LA is well-known for it's Mexicans. The gang and organized crime scene in Miami is very different to the one in LA too, street gang culture in Miami is nothing like LA's Bloods, Crips, or Surenos. The two cities are completely different places.
You are going to be hugely disappointed by Watch Dogs.
To be honest, my intrigue and hype for Watch Dogs has already died down a long time ago bro. I have extensively looked at and read official reviews and personal accounts of WD, and that pretty much did it for me. I'm still gonna play it when I get the chance just to see for myself if I like it, but that won't be until I get a PS4, and that won't be until later this year.
