What the main question for this is, Vice City up next??? Or something entirely different? Will Rockstar go out on a limb in such a manner?
I understand what you are saying about so far Rockstar has re-used the same cities as bases for the GTA counterparts, but 'ENTIRE new world'? Do you want GTA on a global scale? Because that would be impossible.
Or do you want less well known American cities to be used as a base, which will never happen, GTA is a British series, the majority of development takes place in Edinburgh. There would be no point setting a game in a random city because the developers and audience wouldn't understand the reference.
'What we get is MORE Liberty City or Vice City, or San Andreas' is the issue that they re-use the name or the cities they're based upon? Because Liberty City in GTA was completely different to the one in GTA III and both of those are completely different to the one in GTA IV, the same goes for Vice City and San Andreas (which went from a city to a state!). And I don't doubt that there could be a GTA outside the USA, there have been two in the past.
But this is a discussion on the location of GTA V, not future games. What I am trying to say is the information you are presenting, is different to what is already known about the GTA V location, and is not relevant to the topic.
To say a Global setting GTA won't happen, that's not so, as I said, Sam Houser said to the press he believes it's possible, just not in their "game plan" at present, which itself is a dated comment, as I am explaining.
As for random city, also already happened with the amalgamation of US Cities for GTA 3's Liberty City
USA cities will be Rockstar's focus for no better reason then the culture to parody
