2008 EA wouldn't change GTA, only sell more
GTAGaming.com - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 06:12 PM MDT | By rappo
Following a day filled with news of Electronic Arts wanting to buy out Take-Two Interactive, Take-Two's subsequent rejection, and a plethora of Grand Theft Auto and Bioshock fans expressing their own concerns, EA CEO John Riccitiello has decided to share the details of his plans, if all had gone well.
I wouldn't change a line of code in "BioShock" nor would I in "GTA" or "Max Payne"... what we would do is sell more of it.
John Riccitello, CEO - Electronic Arts
Riccitello also went on to explain that EA lacks M-rated content and that an acquisition of Take-Two would have certainly boosted EA in that department (which, ironically, was one of the many concerns that GTA fans expressed - many feared that the franchise would be censored or dumbed down to better follow EA's standards). When asked about the apparent monopoly that EA would have over sports games if the Take-Two deal went through, Riccitello suggested that they would have still had rivals such as "Wii Sports" and "Hot Shots Golf".
It's impossible to tell in what direction the GTA franchise would have gone if EA's offer wasn't rejected, just as it's impossible to tell if Riccitello's explanations were what he had in mind before yesterday's publicity and outrage. I think it's safe to say, however, that Grand Theft Auto is in no imminent danger - so for now it's onward to GTA IV!
