While Rockstar Games latest title, Red Dead Redemption 2, is set for release this coming Friday, some people are already looking forward to the next installment in the highly successful Grand Theft Auto franchise. If you’re one of them, you might be in for a long wait.
In an interview with GQ, Rockstar Games co-founder Dan Houser talks about GTA 6 and how he’s thankful it’s not releasing during the “age of Trump” — obviously referring to current US President, Donald Trump.
It’s really unclear what we would even do with it, let alone how upset people would get with whatever we did. Both intense liberal progression and intense conservatism are both very militant, and very angry. It is scary but it’s also strange, and yet both of them seem occasionally to veer towards the absurd. It’s hard to satirise for those reasons. Some of the stuff you see is straightforwardly beyond satire. It would be out of date within two minutes, everything is changing so fast.
Given how easily offended people are nowadays, and with Rockstar Games’ penchant for including controversial stuff in its games, Houser might have a point. Still, we all know GTA 6 is an inevitability, right? We’ll know for sure how far Rockstar wants to push the envelope of controversy once it’s announced, which isn’t anytime soon.
