Why I think it WON'T be London

London is not an island, Rockstar made SA, VC and LC all islands and that was fair enough, but London is surrounded by other cities and countryside, only way to make it realistic would be to have the entire UK. No one (I hope) wants invisible walls at the end of roads.

It wouldn't feel right to play on an island which infrastructure mimics London, or also for the game to be entitled Grand Theft Auto IV: London.

I believe it will be a totally new and original (made up) location, perhaps based in parts on London, or other places, but it will not be London.

No invisible walls please.

I agree.

I personally think it will be based on all of Europe. And actually hope somehting like this will happen.
Also, seeing as alot of people think it will be London (for years and years already), I think Rockstar will choose not to make a city based entirely on London, everyone likes a little suprise.

Hello, Rockstar isn't simulating real life.

Also, Rockstar don't go with real life names, however, they DO base it on real life cities/states. San Andreas (California), Vice City (Miami), III (New York)


Have you even played GTA? :p

I don't think either of you got what I was saying. Vice City, San Andreas, Liberty City etc were all based on real life locations but were islands. However, as I said

I said it could be based on London. It won't be exactly London. It would have to be an island. Which is all I was saying.

Gee...

Khm.. I thought Las Vegas (Las Venturas) was in Nevada, not California.. Miami isn't a island all by itself and neither is the California/Nevada setting of GTA: SA. So I guess they could make London as a city on an island without anything else around it.. also, GTA Mission Pack #1 was called London (no imaginary name) which would lead eventually to it being called London.. but R* probably won't be as predictable as the games before and will not have Carcer City or London, but some American city..

San Andreas is based on California and Vice City is heavily based on Miami. (Watched the original Miami Vice?)

Watched Scarface? Vice City basically follows the storyline, Diaz's mansion is pretty much exactly the same as the one in Scarface.

I wouldn't mind NYC again in GTAIV, aslong as it looks nothing like LC.

They could go for the old way of making something happen that makes you unable to leave. The airports in Vice City didn't take you anywhere else. A tunnel if i remember correctly in GTA3 was blocked off even after you beat the game and it would have taken you to a different city if it was open

Nope, not really

But personally, I wouldn't like a non-American location as much. Not because I think like "oh USA is the best!" kind of thing, but.. well it's not easy to explain
