Rockstar: Grand Theft Auto V Multiplayer to Redefine Open-World Games

Rockstar has teased that Grand Theft Auto V‘s multiplayer will do for open-world games what Grand Theft Auto III did for single-player games, a bold statement.

In a recent interview with IGN Rockstar North boss Leslie Benzies offered a few teasers regarding Rockstar’s ambitions for Grand Theft Auto V‘s multiplayer. “For GTA V we want to push all of these to a new level while incorporating new gameplay elements that would not have been possible before,” he said.

“The ability to switch between different characters allows the player to do things that wouldn’t have been possible in any other GTA game, and on the multiplayer side we hope that GTA V will do for multiplayer open world games what GTA III did for open world single-player games.”

When pressed for more details about the game’s multiplayer, Benzies replied, “That’s what we’re working on, but we’re not ready to talk about it just yet. Refining open world multiplayer into something really special has been a huge focus of development and we are very excited to share more information with people soon.”
