Dan Houser, co-founder of Rockstar Games, was recently interviewed by Times Online. During their little chat, Houser discussed the continued success of as well as the turmoil created by the Grand Theft Auto franchise, which just expanded with the recent release of Episodes From Liberty City and The Ballad of Gay Tony.
There was also a fleeting tidbit about GTA V:
As for the boys themselves, they are already back at work. There’s a Western game in the works for next spring, and the next GTA to think of. “We’ll think of a city first, then the characters,” says Houser. The script he will end up co-writing will run to around 1,000 pages, nearly ten times as much as a feature film.
As you can see from the quote, GTA V is still a long, long way off, but we do have the upcoming Red Dead Redemption (the “Western game” mentioned above) to look forward to.
Until then, perhaps you should check out Episodes From Liberty City. I’ve heard good things.
