Damn, was hoping for a GTA London Remake now they've done Liberty City again. It's not too colourful so it's doubtful it'll be Vice City. Perhaps San Andreas? Or Some of the cities they always talk about in San Andreas and GTA IV on the Radio.

Won't ever happen. They set standards for realism, not cell shadeism. :p

I actually think Washington DC could make a TON of sense for a GTA game from the story side of things. Corrupt politicians for starters. And for those who do not know, DC has some of the worst ghettos in the US, crime is literally rampant just a mile or so from the White House, so it makes for a truly interesting dichotomy. It is just the geography that would wind up being very boring for a GTA game.

San Fran or Chicago would be my 2 guesses.

DC? Come on.....

It has to be London (I perfer any other US city besides London) but it makes perfect sense and again is the only other city that is missing to be ("re")released.



Should be interesting.

Not sure how this is a surprise to anyone though. The major "10th Anniversary" sale and PR campaign that just started last week was a major hint to the imminent announcement of 5.

There always were those that "saw it coming" :rolleyes:

Noone saw this coming, at least here on Neowin. I thought it was just a regular announcement (talking about the 10 year thing)

As a lifelong admirer of GTA 1 and 2 and a current first time player of GTA IV pc (50% complete main game and got the expansions) here is my two cents or pennies depending on where you think the game will be set. I am betting Vice City since the whole 10th birthday thing however before I started reading any of this thread (so my view wasn’t tainted) I was thinking this may be a long shot but did anyone notice the background to the letter V/ number 5? Looks like a stylised directly looking up view from the inside top floor of the gherkin in London seriously http://www.flickr.co...57594276665695/ of course I could be seeing what’s not there. But I will remind you some of the development team for GTA 3 worked “on Merseyside” (as is the correct wording around here not “in”) and used part of the local landmark the Kingsway tunnel in the game “The entrance to the Kingsway Tunnel is used as the basis of a tunnel entrance in the video game Grand Theft Auto III — during the 1990s, several members of the game's development team had worked for the Merseyside-based development company Psygnosis.” http://en.wikipedia....Kingsway_Tunnel

While this doesn’t say a lot about London it (Merseyside contains within it the city of Liverpool in the North West) it should remind everyone GTA may not always stay American personally for the amount of space they wasted in San Andreas they could have made 2 totally separate maps one American and say one London your on what at a time and buy a long haul flight between them I would love this a multinational GTA. PS am I remembering a lot of references in GTA IV about Vice City near the airport?

UPDATE: OPPS just realised the error of my ways mixed up GTA 3 and GTA Vice City dont know the older games as well as GTA IV and 1 and 2 lol how noob of me but my points still seem to stand just correct names where I messed up lol

They should put an iPhone instead, so we could set it in Airplane mode to stop receiving calls and emails.

Well my first reaction to the massive scale of the 10th Anniversary mess was that the new one was on the way. So, yes I saw it coming. Since I didn't have any insider information I had a 50/50 shot of being right (it was either a new game or no new game coming) and it is a common marketing tactic to drum up interest before you make a major announcement.

So it wasn't like it was magical to have expected this...
