NY would be cool and all. But NYC-based games are old. I mean, there's just too many imo. And Liberty City is mostly NYC in the GTA "world". But you can't leave out the possibility that maybe R* is leaning towards making GTA more realistic, and they would do so setting the game in an actual rendered city (London, NYC, Chicago etc.).
