Rockstar North head Leslie Benzies told Digital Trends that the studio is definitely interested in tying all of the cities together in a single game experience. “Of course at some point we would like to have one big world containing all our cities and let the player fly between them and revisit their favorite areas. In that context re-imagining Vice City would be very interesting,” Benzies said.
With regard to whether or not Rockstar has plans to return to Vice City specifically, Benzies went on to add: “[I]t is always a possibility. There are a few references to the city in our current-gen GTAs so it is part of that HD universe, and it is certainly somewhere we would love to revisit. However, Vice City, perhaps more than any other GTA game, was as much about the era as the setting. Miami in the 1980’s is so iconic it would feel strange to revisit the city in a different time period.”
