In the future Rockstar would like to release a game featuring all the cities from previous Grand Theft Auto titles, allowing players to fly between them, Rockstar North chief Leslie Benzies has told Digital Trends.

Chatting in relation to the recent launch of GTA Vice City on iOS and Android and a possible return to the much loved title, Benzies said: "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 favourite areas, and in that context reimagining Vice City would be very interesting "

Thumbs up to that idea. And then give us a time machine so we can dial it back to Red Dead Redemption, please.

I have no doubt the sames gonna get 10/10 across board, and the gaming communities are gonna love it, but blah I'm thinking games are getting to be too big nowadays. Worse, a lot of them are filled content and gameplay that are added just for the hell of length.

I don't know, personally with a lot of these games I usually end up spending most of my time just getting through the side quests and padding content, and never end up finishing the actual game. By the time I get around to it I'm usually already sick and tired of the gameplay and the world.

What's all this talk about time machines? Just because Vice City was based in the 80's, doesn't mean the new Vice City has to be.

I think it would be a great idea to let us fly to different cities. The only bad thing is that there will be so much to do, the game would completely take over your life lol.

As much as I love everything GTA, I personally think bringing them all together would cheapen the experience for me. I like that they're all separate and in different eras, they all have a unique feel and having each 'world' available in one game sounds messy and might sacrifice some of the individuality of the games.

Its a video game so anything is possible. Just because there all set in different eras does not mean they would need time machines, it would just mean some characters might be much older or younger depending on which era the game is set. For example i don't need a time machine to get to the year 2020 its slow but i just need to wait around 7 years but i know one thing for sure i could not get myself there with a jetpack. So don't worry my bubble is bouncing along nicely. :)

This would be amazing and I've spoke about wanting them to do this before on here, wanted them to do it since San Andreas came out when you do that one mission that returns you to that one area of liberty city by flying a plane from the airport, obviously it couldn't be done on current gen would require disc changes and I had enough of that in la noire on Xbox, so much potential for this to be great all though except for location and mission scenarios I can't see it making the individual city games any better just a lot bigger and more fun to mess about in which is all you really do in GTA. An MMO would work well in it though.

I hate to burst your bubble but I think all the games were set in different eras, so seems unlikely unless it involves a time machine. Not impossible seeing as there are jet packs though!

As cool as that sounds, I wish they would take the game somewhere outside the US. Using the same locations over and over is getting a bit stale.

I'm seeing a modern Day Red Dead/Breaking Bad style game. Sounds good in my head..

Wow! That would be amazing even more so if the characters and events all cross over each other. Like Nico could meet up with CJ and do a job or some deals etc.
The potential is there to make the best videogame ever!, there is so much material to work with it could be huge. Please do this Rockstar
