Not likely, but that is the suggestion being sent out by this Real Estate firm who mocked up a map of Portland Oregon as a GTA map.

New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Miami have all gotten their due. And with “Grand Theft Auto 5” finally hitting PC January 27, it’s time to set our sights on to the future of the franchise and the inevitable “Grand Theft Auto 6”.
But where should Rockstar take “Grand Theft Auto” next? Milwaukee? The Moon? That’s the real question on everybody’s mind, and we here at Movoto Real Estate Blog think, nay, we know, we’ve found the best answer.

We already proved how much crime pays with our previous trip into the world of GTA, so we’re lending our expertise to help Rockstar make what could be a hard decision quite easy. Are you ready for it? Sitting down? Brace yourself.“Grand Theft Auto 6” needs to be set in Portland, OR.
Hell yea! I am slightly biased but I have always felt Portland would be an amazing city for an open world game. Check out the map:



With Marijuana being legalized here during the last election it would open up the game to some ripe story lines as well.

What say you GAF??

Smoke me if old...

It'd be a dull GTA setting expressly because it's such a nice place to live.

Don't worry, I'll vouch for them.

Portland, OR
Oh fuck, my house is one of those pins.

I would be down. Needs snowy mountains and a coast city though as well. Not to mention logging, college town, etc.

Could be pretty great actually.

On the one hand, my gut reaction is "okay, but Portlandia has already done this" - but OTOH, if they actually do it well, the possibilities for mocking the excesses of faux-progressive/faux-healthy/faux-enlightened Western culture are endless.

That's all just misdirection. The next iteration will clearly be Grand Theft Rickshaw set in rural China.

Portland is an awesome city, but this is most likely a false rumor.

Portland doesn't have enough "excitement" for a GTA game, like a New York or L.A. clone would.

Only other city I think that could do it is Chicago.

I'd rather see them go to a different country. Maybe take on London again or give Tokyo or Bangkok a try..

It's a shame they most likely wont move outside the US, I really hope it's set in the future or past though as I'm getting tired of the modern day satire thing.

What a terrible thread title.

Also, as a lifelong Portland resident, this would be a horrible choice. Portland isn't exactly an "exciting" city, and marijuana legalization doesn't automatically mean that it will become the perfect candidate for a massive crime-spree simulator. I mean, did anyone consider Denver as a location after they legalized it last year?

fictional Chicago would overlap NY too much. I think they have to go out of country (think James Bond), or if its a quicker turnaround I guess I could see returning to Vice City-ish setting.

It's too bad infamous ruined Seattle for a setting, is much more interesting city set up than portland. But portland would be better than another NY/LA/Miami game.

Miami would be the smart move given that it's completely flat. Design-wise, it should make their lives easier and allow for a quicker development cycle. Plus, they need to do missions in the keys and the everglades.

So stop fucking around and given me Vice City 2 dammit.
