Dan Houser speaks at length about GTA IV

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 10:41 AM MDT | By Neil
Dan Houser is Creative Vice President at Rockstar Games, and he's given a rare, lengthy interview to Variety about all things GTA. In it, he provides his opinion that the original GTA team in Dundee, Scotland simply "fell apart" following arguments over whether the game could be made in 3D and he makes it clear that ultimately, the decision on where to set the next game lies firmly with the development team.
"New York came out as the obvious place because we’d never done it before. In the old games [Liberty City] was just vaguely East Coast-ish. It wasn’t New York and it wasn’t trying to be. And then we realized, why would anyone making a TV show in New York know it better than us now that we lived here 10 years?"
