Rockstar: We could have easily released a new GTA every year
 

 
But decided against it over fears fans would "lose interest" in the series.

Rockstar has claimed that it could have "easily" turned Grand Theft Auto into an annual franchise by 'churning out' a new GTA every year, but decided against doing so over fears that fans would "lose interest" in the series.

Discussing the history of the series with IGN, Rockstar North boss Leslie Benzies said that the team had "no idea" how the first 3D GTA would be received.

"When we were working on GTA 3 we were a much smaller team doing something new and experimental," he said. "We had no idea how the game would be received, just a belief that what we were working on was really special.

"Since then we have grown in to a much larger team and our games have much higher expectations. It's not just our own faith in each project we've had to repay, but our fans' too.

"We could easily have churned out a new version year after year without really progressing as a franchise but if we did that eventually the fans would lose interest."

Instead, Rockstar wants "every one of [its] games to meet and exceed the players' expectations so they always want more.

"As such GTA 5 feels like our most ambitious project yet," Benzies adds.

Benzies' comments follow the launch of the latest Call of Duty title yesterday, a series which has been criticised by some for its annual iterations.

Information on GTA 5 has been pouring out since Game Informer's huge info blowout last week.

A second trailer is expected to be released at 4pm GMT this afternoon.

In the same interview, Benzies also revealed that GTA 5 is being developed on a "new game engine" created by Rockstar.

Exactly.


But if they can do this sh*t every year, they have no excuse for Vice City not having a HD remake.

I wouldn't mind a new DLC release or something every year but as far as the main game GTA is a game that should only come out every 4-5 years.

Yea GTA is a game that shouldn't be milked. I feel like Rockstar did it just right, even with the PS2 and handheld releases, because they all offered very different experiences. Don't be like Ubisoft with a.ssassin's Creed. I loved AC2 but Brotherhood and Revelations made it stale as fu*k.

What do EA release every year, sport games? people want games like Fifa every year. Dont think people would much want to wait 3-5 years for a decent new FPS to play either but thats another matter

I would rather have 1-2 great GTA's per generation then 8 mediocre ones.

It's why i am not the biggest COD fan. Loved COD/COD2 and MW SP and MP but it's been the same sh*t since, having played BLOPS 2 online i appreciate them trying new things but it still feels the same.

Would you rather take mediocrity? Or excellence? It's why companies like Rockstar, Blizzard and Valve are held as the best of the best, the greatest developers. Why? Because they don't push sh*t out for money they actually take their time and develop GREAT games.

i wouldn't be mad if they did it once every 3 years. when was the last one? 5 years ago by the time the new one drops? i just hate that they announced this sh!t a year ago like it was dropping this year instead of next year

they have been putting out different sandbox games in that time period though (rdr,la noire[sorta])
so its not like they aren't putting anything out

if they can put out gta,rdr, and something else(like bully,manhunt. something like that) in a rotation im fine with it

Manhunt Collection in HD (or new Manhunt made for this or next gen systems would be INSANE)
