A new setting with an existing one?

Recommended Posts

Grotti Vigilante

There is much speculation as to where the next GTA game will be taking place. Many place their bets on Vice City, some on San Fierro, and some even on Las Venturas. These are the ones from the 3D Universe not yet given a new HD treatment. But some are also hoping for a new setting such as Chicago or Detroit. But another idea people are pressing is multiple cities, which some see as very likely, and if not likely then at the very least inevitable in future games if not the next one. But what I think would be a good business decision on Rockstar's half is to both bring back a sense of familiarity while also adding in a new piece of the GTA world. In other words, using the multiple cities idea with both an existing and new setting.

 

The first ideas that spring to mind for me is Liberty City and a new setting based on Chicago or Detroit, with the former being a particularly good choice to add in for a mafia-themed game. The 1970s would especially be a good time at least in Liberty City's case, but as a whole they seem to be the most natural pairings in terms of multiple cities. In the case of Vice City, you could bring in some new setting based on some other nearby Florida cities, or you could add another setting based on New Orleans in Louisiana. I know there are other cities in Florida between them such as Tampa and Orlando, but I can't speak on how well known they are for crime and such. Part of me would like to see Texas be given some sort of treatment, but I don't know how that could link with other settings. In all honesty, Liberty City and a new Chicago setting seem most natural.

 

But ultimately what I want is for this thread to discuss the principle as to whether any new settings should be standing alone in their debut game, or if they should be introduced alongside a new city. I mean I know a lot of people would hate to return to Liberty so soon but adding a new place based on Chicago may make it better and actually add to the story. Anybody who wanted somewhere new gets what they want, and people who love the familiarity of the big three GTA settings get something for them too. It's a win-win for most fans, and it allows Rockstar to expand on the GTA world and add greater integration. If you like the idea or at least think it should be done, why not give me your own suggestions and why? I hope his thread can take off, and I look forward to hearing all your thoughts.

Carcer set on Detroit with Liberty City and some countryside in-between sounds pretty good to me, although i'd love Las Venturas with it's vast desert too.

Carcer City based on either Chicago or Philadelphia along with Las Venturas as the second city. 1970s. The Carcer City Mafia rums a casino in Las Venturas so the protagonist travels between both cities.

Need a new fresh setting w/ snowy mountains and aurora borealis, tired of this forest/desert combo. North Yankton in GTA V doesn't count as it only appears in 2 missions and you can't freeroam.

I want the Northern part of San Andreas with San Fierro to boot, what we got in V is a incomplete version of the state which covers only the Southern part of it.

 

But I dont want to have only the Northern San Andreas, I also want to have Los Santos again, and the ability to travel to each part by air, land and water, not have it locked to airports only, that's a cop out.

Also could they do a phased release (or DLC) of the map which would give extra dev time? So almost make a mini-planet over the course of the next 5-7 years. First release is America, 2nd Europe, 3rd Asia etc.? 

 

Perhaps would have to be next-gen only but would be pretty epic.

If we see Liberty City again, I’d like to see a more detailed New Jersey alongside it. 

I know New Jersey was technically in GTA 4, but It was only a small section. I’d love to see Atlantic City — it would be a cool contrast to Liberty City and we’d get a nice beach and some nice casinos to gamble in. A detailed New Jersey would feel like a new city to me.

I'd love to see Newark. I also want them to do a version of Trenton, NJ only because I want to see this bridge

The problem with Atlantic City is that it's a bit too far from NYC. It could work maybe if they cut out a lot of stuff. But it could work for a Philadelphia based GTA better imo.

That would be great. I don’t really know the geography if I am honest. I did just google it though and I saw that Philly was closer, so you make a good point. I just like the idea of Atlantic City because it offers the casino and the beach etc and I think we need as much variety as possible.

Yeah I'd love to see Atlantic City. It's like an east coast version of Las Vegas.

Yep exactly. We can have some of the thing we love about the west coast on the east coast.
