Grand Theft Auto V looks to outdo all previous incarnations of the franchise, having the setting of San Andreas be many times larger than Liberty City in GTA IV. With Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition just released on smartphones, Rockstar's Leslie Benzies indicates that the iconic city might be revisited in a future GTA game... and might just be the tip of the iceberg.
“It is always a possibility. There are a few references to the city in our current-gen GTAs so it is part of that HD universe, and it is certainly somewhere we would love to revisit. However Vice City, perhaps more than any other GTA game, was as much about the era as the setting. Miami in the 1980’s is so iconic it would feel strange to revisit the city in a different time period,” said Benzies. “Of course at some point we would like to have one big world containing all our cities and let the player fly between them and revisit their favorite areas, and in that context reimagining Vice City would be very interesting.”
