GTA 5 Map Is "Very Big" - Dan Houser
Rockstar boss adds extra weight to GTA 5's grand scale.

GTA 5's map size will likely wipe the floor with GTA 4's Liberty City if a recent comment from Rockstar's Dan Houser is anything to go by.
Asked whether GTA 5 was set in San Andreas by GI during a Max Payne 3 interview, the Rockstar co-founder said: "I've got to be real careful here, or they will drag me through the office and whip me with barbwire. I will stick to exactly what's in the press release. It's Los Santos and the surrounding countryside - and a very big map."
That's pretty much in line with what was said in Rockstar's press release - which arrived at the same time as the announcement trailer - but the first proper reference to the size of the map.
"Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created," the company said back in November.
"A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California."
