GTAV's Map To Make Liberty City Look Small By Comparison?
It's always amusing when the co-founder of a studio is afraid to talk about the team's next big project. Repercussions galore!
It's like covert-ops stuff until they get the green light, apparently. Rockstar has given us the official press release and a debut trailer for Grand Theft Auto V, but they're not willing to divulge further details.
In a recent Game Informer interview (as cited by GTAV.net) about Max Payne 3, Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser was asked about GTAV. His response was as follows:
"I've got to be real careful here, or they will drag me through the office and whip me with barbwire. I will stick to exactly what's in the press release. It's Los Santos and the surrounding countryside - and a very big map."
The press release had said we'll be experiencing the "most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created," but it didn't offer specific size information for the map. We know it's a "bold new direction" for storytelling and open-world sandbox games - the statement that has us the most intrigued - and we're assuming Los Santos and the rest of the landscape will be a bigger environment than Liberty City in GTAIV. But how much bigger? What kind of crazy dimensions are we talking about here?
Oh well, we can be patient. For a little while, anyway.
