Some scuffling about on the internet due to a fake press release came about when some thought they had hit a gold mine with the upcoming announcement that Rockstar would be returning the former location of one of the more beloved Grand Theft Auto games, San Andreas. It should have been a major red flag that most people found it on social media before any news outlet got their hands on it, but it began a little stir because of how many fans would love to see a return to the roots that caused one of gaming biggest controversies ever. If you aren’t privy to what took place a mod, called Hot Coffee, allowed for players to watch and interact with a sexually explicit scene in the game that would not be able to otherwise be seen. The poly-butts made San Andreas an instant hit, and yeah it was a pretty solid story too.
That got us here at This Gen Gaming thinking about Rockstar as a company though and the popularity of the Grand Theft Auto Series. Though Rockstar will always be known for GTA, it is some of the other titles that they have developed that could be pegged as even more important to the rise of their empire in gaming. We agree that Grand Theft Auto V, which recently saw a next generation re-release, is one of the best games of last generation and a bench mark for the new systems as well but we also think that Rockstar must move on to something else for their next title as well. This is five reasons why, Rockstars next game should not be a Grand Theft Auto game.
