Very sad really he was just drinking at the bar when someone shouted someone elses name (who is still alive now) and shot him in the eye.

Anyway there's no way it could be based on Liverpool just yet with the current climate of gun crime.

the more i think about it, boston wouldn't be too bad at all. lots of alleys and tight streets for getaway/chase missions, old ships to blow up and sink, highways and tunnels, an airport, marinas all over. it has everything there is in a GTA.

Any huge expanses of greenery?

once you get out from the main urban area. look it up on google maps or something.

It's an actual map of Salem Massachusetts.

Still could be a hint. Maybe we'll get Boston for a city and Salem and other's as country/suburb destinations.


When was that map confirmed to be an actual place, I remember making a topic about it last year or whenever and I don't think we ever concluded where it was precisely. Assuming it's the map from the interior of the Platypus.

you can see "salem" on the map in cbc's picture. so i typed "salem" into google (thinking it could possibly be a place in the UK for those who want london again), and Salem Massachusetts was the only one to pop up, put that into google maps and the as luck would have it it is an exact copy of the actual place.

i don't know/remember a previous topic.

taking another look at cbc's pic, it says (lower left of map): "SALEM, MARBLEHEAD AND BEVERLY HARBOR, MA" which is the real area.

Christmas Island or Easter Island.
The Awesome One
I thought I could give reasons on why I would love to have London as the setting for GTA5.

London has a very diverse crime scene with Russians, Jamaicans, Chinese, South Asians, blacks, whites, football hooligans, teen gangs, Cockney Firms..
Crimes such as: Stabbing, Rape, Murder, binge drinking.

London could give us a game where the main character isnt rich at the end of it. Niko was supposed to be rags to not so rags, but he ends up with at least 500K. Luis is just rich. We need a good character, just not a rich good character.

A few places, which we all would love to attack. Downing street, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Wembley Stadium,(and any other footie stadium) the Underground..
Marney1
I don't want it to have anything to do with footy because it just doesn't fit in with GTA. Not just my opinion it's fact.
TreeFitty
i agree with it not being a big part of the game, but I could see it in a small role. like a "gang" or someone to get missions from at a pub. "He's a whoever fan with a big mouth! kill em for me before he snitches again!" something along those lines.

London footie stadiums are very close to each other, no doubt some missions would be footie related.

There is nothing wrong with a cockney accent. I live in London, I see crime every day. In fact, I was woken up this morning after somebody abandoned a stolen car. London would offer different crime, different people. Same with France. France has a lot of dodgy shit and that would be a great place for a money making storyline.

In fact, it would be even better if London and Paris were joined up. Start in London, drive down to Dover, get a Ferry, go to Calais, Drive to Paris. Just shorten the journey a bit, and you would have two amazing settings for GTA 5.

You just made me remember something, back when I was in secondary school we went to Paris on a trip (I think it was for our French lesson or something foolish (7).gif ) We were under the Eiffel tower and there were loads of dodgy vendors selling cheap tacky shit, one came up to me brandishing a lighter waving it under my nose, he then pressed a button on the side of the lighter and a flickknife came out, I said "what, are you trying to sell it to me or mug me?" Then later we were at a McDonalds near the Arc De Triomphe, outside there were (more) dodgy vendors selling (more) tacky shit, models of the Eiffel tower etc. We went into McDonalds, managed to order some "le froggy fries" sat down, began eating, and some guy on a table opposite ours began going crazy, throwing his drink at the walls, kicking chairs. Then a black guy in a suit came running out of a door nearby and punched the guy in the face, knocking him out, he had a McDonalds badge on so I assume he was the manager. We shrugged our shoulders, carried on eating and left, as we were leaving we heard police cars getting closer, the vendor outside quickly gathered up his shit in the towel it was laying on, chucked it over his shoulder and ran off.

True story nigguh, was one funny trip. happy.gif

Yea, when I was 13 I went on a trip to(or near) Calais. One vendor was trying to sell a friend of mine a dildo. Our RS teacher came up and flipped the vendors table! Best trip ever.

I would love to see vice city again, in the modern time to see changes that it went through, but I have to say though that vice city was really tiny compared to all the other games =/ Maybe they can make it a bit bigger, another island maybe?
TreeFitty
I'm sure [if it is done] it will go through as many changes as Liberty City did. Entirely new map that's much bigger and reflects the area it's based after way better.
FireGod
I'm sure A VC redo would have a bigger,all new map,the idea of adding a third island would be done I think,I hope they have a news report,that says the new island is now open,you must drive carefully,the terrain is hilly do to the volcanic nature of this new island which formed from the ocean in just 4years, this way you can decide if you want to stunt there in the wide open hilly terrain,that would add a mystery to the place,and I hope R*will go big on a real mystery this time,some really good eggs,would help,well thought out,put them in spooky settings.

Umm.. hilly volcanic island from nowhere? last time i looked miami did not have an island that came rising out of the sea due to volcanic activity. If they do Vice City its gonna be based more on how miami is as of now, if the timeframe is of modern day, not some place with random volcanic islands and im sure not just some random island added to the original vice city. If anything there will be inlets, swamp lands and maybe small islands like the Fl. keys off the coast.

Well from a recent article, it seems that R* doesn't even have a city decided yet, which I find strange since they said they had the GTA III trilogy planned out years in advance; contemporary NY, 80's Miami and 90's Cali(/Nevada).

He didn't say they didn't. He more or less just stated the route the games take in developement. The article the 360 article quoted was from November 13th.

quote the Times article, page 3:

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.


We know about the ~1000 page script, so obviously at this point a location would have been chosen.

At this point I don't want London simply because I don't want to hear CC carry on and dance about like a git. But I guess we'll find out soon.

Las Venturas on its own would be a bold step. Maybe the GTA5 era could have 3 games. One in Los Santos/Holland one in San Fierro/Countryside and one in Las Venturas/Desert.

Dan Houser has already said he doesn't think the cast (protagonist anyway) being well known movie stars etc is a good idea because whenever he played Vice City he couldn't get it out of his head that he was actually Ray Liotta from Goodfellas and not Tommy Vercetti.
Hope he changes his mind though because I'd like to be the little psycho Tommy DeVito and stab people in the neck with pens.

I'm just wondering what they'd do if they set it in San Andreas because there's three very different areas there.
