What if one could play a Grand Theft Auto game where the option is there to visit all the cities from the previous games? We bet that would be exciting for the fans. Well, the head of Rockstar North, Leslie Benzies, is planning to do just that with a future game.

In an interview with Digital Trends, Benzies had this to say:

"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," said Benzies. "In that context re-imagining Vice City would be very interesting."

Very interesting it would be indeed. Pulling off such a feat will never be an easy task, as it would take plenty of RAM to get it done. Furthermore, there could be loading time problems and that is not something that gamers need. Just look at the Nintendo Wii U and its slow loading time that seems to affect all games on the platform, not good.

On the matter of Vice City returning as the main setting in a future Grand Theft Auto game, Benzies said:

"it 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."

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was recently released on iOS devices, an Android release is expected to make a debut in the coming days.
