Rockstar’s Dan Houser has said that while the company is definitely interested in the prospect of new hardware, it doesn’t have plans to take the Grand Theft Auto franchise to PlayStation 4 just yet.
Speaking with The Guardian, Houser was asked what the company feels about the release of next-generation systems, and how a potential sixth instalment in the GTA series would look like on PS4.
In response, Houser admitted that the company is interested in the tech, but doesn’t have anything in the pipeline in regards to its multi-million dollar selling crime franchise.
“Of course we’re interested. But no, not in terms of GTA, because we’re always working on the current game. We look at the tech at a more practical level: what will be ready for which game that we’re working on further down the line. We don’t have another GTA in development, we don’t work on three of these games at a time. That would be phenomenally depressing.
“So, in terms of GTA, no. We get pitched by the hardware manufacturers on what they’re planning to do and our tech guys come up with ideas on how that could be used. Does this influence design decisions. Of course. But we’re not sat there fantasising about 10 years down the line. We’re so busy with what we’re doing right now.”
GTA V is out now for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Stay tuned to PSU.com for our review.
