I'm assuming that the game will take place AFTER the events of that day. If they have done this, then I'm wondering whether there will be any mention of those buildings.

Do you think that they would dare put the pit that exists in the real Manhattan -- you know, the giant, open wound in the earth that used to be two tall buildings...?!

Or do you think that they will punt, and just leave it alone?

All speculation. And this is why I wrote in the title PLEASE DON'T READ this message if you live in NYC, unless you have a really strong stomach.

Thanks.

I think you're being a little too dramatic. We do not know the time period exactly, but I'm sure R* has put a lot of thought into that. They don't shy away from controversy, but I'm sure they wouldn't do anything disrespectful of that disaster. My guess is that they'll totally avoid it.

I don't think you have to worry about that.

About the WTC.... probably should have made another thread, but I think there's a good chance they won't include anything about them. There's already enough controversy about GTA itself, no need to add more fuel to the fire.

If GTA IV is based on NYC, there might not need to be any additional cities. If they use ALL of NYC as material, it might be enough by itself.

Hah, call me crazy, but I like you.

The WTC thing is a very important thing to bring up though since this does seem to be modeled off NY, if not being NY itself. I will be very interested to see what they do with that.

Considering how they removed the so called terrorist missions from GTA3, I don't think they would risk dealing with any mention of 9/11. But then, aren't their chances of maybe placing a memorial of sorts denoting Ground Zero? Will that be deemed slanderous as well?

No it's not.

It looks like it. Manhattan bridge does NOT have those lifts next to it in real life.

OK heres what im 99% sure will happen in the next gen gta(s). This will be the actuall NYC not liberty city ( liberty city doesnt have the statue and the empire state building) The caracter is either russian, or middle eastern ( his accent says russian, his look says middle eastern) and they will most likely make the next gta's in Miami( the actual miami not vice) and L.A las vegas and san francisco, which will be kickass.

I wish that were true, but I think you're wrong. It says Liberty City everywhere in the trailer and there is even an LCPD police car. Just like in San Andreas, there real life landmarks, but the cities themselves were overall different. I could be wrong, but that's how I see it.

Got it down to a tee there, how I see it too.

Umm... Why would Rockstar do exactly the same settings as in previous 5 games instead of new ones?

Well why would they go back to LC a fourth time ont eh next gen?

GTA1 - LC, VC, SA
GTAIII - LC
GTALCS - LC (obviously)

I guess maybe they ran out of ideas, or maybe they wanted to take another shot at NY, seeing how realistic they could make it on this gen of consoles.

Russian mob/mafia wise..I'd say we're gonna have a decent story.

I think with the Russian mob story, it'll be pretty fun and hopefully have diversed missions, but still sticking to GTA styled missions.

qwertyuio is on a distinguished roadqwertyuio is on a distinguished road
all of you wanting that eurepha- i dont know how to spell it
youll be dissapointed to find out there using the RAGE engine (Rockstar Advance GAME Engine )

and you people arnt thinking, EPISODIC CONTENT, notice the big freighter that said liberty city on it? then remember the statue of liberty?, two seperate cities so two cities, the game is released episodically so you could go between the cities
oh and... since this is for ps3 and xbox 360, i think there will be more people and cars, lots more, because these sytmes can handle it

PROOF:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GTA_IV
and besides the game engine notice under the "Things will be differnt" section a little into the paragraph it says "The trailer is about 1:03 in length, and it reveals that the game takes place (at least partially) in Liberty City, a fictionalised New York City"
