There are so many time periods and settings in which Rockstar’s sharp writing and keen wit could flourish. I for one would really like to see what their vision of the future could look like. Something like Mass Effect, but rather than focusing on saving the galaxy, it would be a more personal story about a few individuals and their journey. How about a game set in England during the industrial revolution? Exploring late 18th century London and surrounding small towns, interacting with all sorts of shady characters in the criminal underworld would be a blast. Seeing as how Rockstar is a British studio, having them revisit their home country seems like a great premise.
If we take a look at a franchise like Assassin’s Creed, the biggest appeal of those games is by far exploring each instalment’s new historical setting. I personally never cared much for the story of those games, and would much rather play a game by Rockstar set in say; Colonial America or Renaissance Italy.
Whatever Rockstar does with GTA, or any other game they have up their sleeve, we can’t wait to see what they will bring us next. Here’s hoping we get another game like Red Dead Redemption that explores a fresh setting. We also wouldn’t mind getting some news on Agent at some point. Rockstar, you truly do rock!
