I'm sure we all know how important The Benz and some people who also departed along with him (Colin Entwistle, Matthew Smith, numerous others who are working on Everywhere now and not Rockstar titles) were for GTA... It's concerning how the series has "evolved" since Online has exploded in popularity.
I'd be much more comfortable with the future of GTA if we had some single player DLC for V to prove to us they can make more to the game without him.
With all these rumours of RDR2 being in "Development Hell" and studios having their motivation sapped from them with moral being "low" from people claiming to be leakers, it has me a bit concerned for the future of this franchise.
Do you guys think IV (or whatever they decide to call it) will be a let down without The Benz running Rockstar North? I think it might be... I get the feeling The Benz was extremely important to the moral of Rockstar North... with him gone, I wouldn't be surprised if GTA 6 isn't quite the GTA we've all come to love...
I'm sure Leslie gets brought up a lot here, but, I rarely come here and just wanted to chat about the future of the franchise with some lads who care about this game as much as me - can't really get that on Reddit.
Hahaha the auto replace with "the Benz" whenever you type his full name... nice touch staff.
