Rockstar boss Dan Houser has expressed his interest in pursuing a science fiction based game, if they have a good reason to do so. Houser said that the team at Rockstar have no interest in going into science fiction for the sake of flying cars and laser guns. He then went on to elaborate that the best science fiction stories are those that speak about the human condition. Here’s what Houser had to say.

“We will do it the very second we have an idea. One of our strengths is the consistency of the game world. We’re not necessarily the best writers in the world, but we how to write a video game.

“When we decided to make a Western, it was because we knew we had something to say,” he went on. “We have no interest in going into science fiction for the sake of flying cars and laser guns. The best science fiction stories are those that speak about the human condition. So while this idea is very tempting and, by definition, anything’s possible in a videogame, we lack the essential thing for the moment: a good reason.”
