Rockstar Would Like To Make A Sci-Fi Game


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.”

    1. There ara many R* games on Nintendo platforms (chinatown wars, bully, manhunt, body harvest, lemmings 2, uniracers, GTA 1, …. plus, GTA V is still not confirmed for PC and WIi U…. its under “consideration”.

      DMA Design was renamed to Rocsktar North….

      THATS WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Time will tell, but I think they could do a pretty good job on this. I guess they’re bored with the same GTA. Well, with story its hard to be original anymore, especially in Sci-Fi.

    Anyone know why the Sci Fi channel changed to ‘SyFy’? I call it ‘siffy’, it looks ridiculous.

      1. . Your favorite juiostfcatiin appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

      2. Mitzi I can answer this besucae my family lives down there! You are outside of my color planting schedule by about a month. The trick is, Las Vegas gets so hot in the summer, but you can grow almost all winter long. My book is really for a spring-summer-fall planting schedule. The dates I offer might work for you and others who live in warmer climates, but really have a spring-summer and a fall-winter season. I am very aware of your needs, and it’s on my list of things to research and write about. But honestly, I can’t speak from experience, only from my research. I encourage you to contact your local extension service ( for a recommended planting schedule.

  2. I don’t see why this should be in a nintendo site since third party game publishers are not supporting the wiiu. Third party support on the wiiu is an oxymoron. It just doesn’t make sense. The system is way under powered and they make no money nice your drones only buy Nintendo developed and or published titles. If

      1. We do and we’re getting some , Rayman Legends , Lego City undercover , Wonderfull 101 , Bayonetta 2 , Aliens colonial marines Monster Hunter Ultimate and so forth.

        I would rather get third party exclusives than shit multiplats.

    1. I don’t see why you should be on this site since you’re a fucking nasty bitch who doesn’t like Nintendo


    2. Isn’t it funny that these Nintensheep are in complete denial? They’ll support a pos system with laughable PS1 graphics, a shitty controller, and no third party support. They seem to not understand how pathetic the Wii U is.
      ~THE REAL Bill~

      1. You forgot to say that you’re so manly that you love cocks in your ass while you sit, that’s why you always blush with a smile of lust on your face whenever you sit.

      2. Why do you waste your time and life coming to a nintendo site if you don’t like nintendo?
        What baffles me more is you take your time to post a comment to a nintendo site??

  3. Why give these two idiots the time of day? It’s rather obvious that they get beat up pretty much every week and can only ‘get even’ by being a turd on the internet.

  6. I guess all the trolls have so much time on their hands coming here talking absolut nonsense most of the time cause they are all bored with their ancient systems and software, whereas we have something new and exciting worth talking about.

  7. Is it me, or is was my brain thinking of the exact same idea years ago that Rockstar is thinking of right now? o_o i had an idea for a futuristic dystopian sci-fi story, but this is just nuts. (still has idea)

  8. An individual lost myelsf, buddy. Come on, We envision My partner and i acquire just what youre stating. I know exactly what you’re declaring, nevertheless, you simply seem to have got neglected that might be various individuals in the globe which see this kind of challenge that it is actually and may perhaps not go with you. You might be switching aside significantly people who had previously been lovers of the internet site.
