Futuristic sci-fi GTA 'tempting' - Rockstar VP

Rockstar vice president Dan Houser says the prospect of a futuristic Grand Theft Auto game is "tempting," but only if there's a good reason to do it.

"We will do it the very second we have an idea," Houser told French site Ecrans (via OXM) in response to a setting beyond the present or past.

"When we decided to make a Western [with Red Dead], it was because we knew we had something to say," he said. "We have no interest in going into science fiction for the sake of flying cars and laser guns. The best science fiction stories are those that speak about the human condition.

"So while this idea is very tempting and, by definition, anything's possible in a videogame, we lack the essential thing for the moment: a good reason."

Simply refreshing the series isn't reason enough, as Houser said he's not worried about rejuvenating the series.

I just want it to be released on the PC and the Wii U. Hating Rockstar right now.
A GTA like game for nerds.
no, GTA should stick with the time eras we're in as they get released, if i want to play a futuristic GTA-ish game, i'd play Saints Row the Third

Geez, has it already been 25 years since Vice City came out?
I think a sci-fi based game would be cool for Rockstar to make. I dont want a futuristic GTA (unless its a couple years into the future).

I'd prefer if Rockstar made a brand new sci-fi game, but make it free-roam like they did with Red Dead.
It only just occurred to me now but GTA V on WiiU would be incredible. Imagine Chinatown Wars' gameplay innovations merged with a flagship HD title in the series! *Drools*

i meant as in for now, Vice City was to make sure we have a game for that period of time to catch up till now, there was that set in the 80's, San Andreas the 90's, and GTA IV for the 2005-2009 period of time, then GTA V which seems 2011- 2014 ish from the looks of the cars and the setting
