Rockstar wants to connect all Grand Theft Auto worlds, bring more games to mobile

Rockstar Games would like to connect all the cities depicted in the Grand Theft Auto series into one explorable world, Rockstar North president Leslie Benzies said in a recent interview with Digital Trends.

"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," Benzies said when asked about the possibility of returning to Vice City.

On the subject of mobile development, Benzies also said there are a handful of previous titles the company would like to port to mobile devices.

"Also the power of mobile technology is increasing so rapidly it is hard to imagine the kind of games we could be releasing for them in years to come," he said. "Whether these are repurposed versions of existing games or entirely new IPs I couldn't say, but if you look at Chinatown Wars you can see that we are always up for the challenge of designing games for new technologies and making the most of all their features, not just their processing power."

Rockstar will revisit the city of Los Santos from 2004's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in its next game, Grand Theft Auto 5, scheduled to release in spring next year.
