"If we were going to do a sequel or going to do another Western game we were going to make the game that we wanted to make," Dan Houser, Rockstar's co-founder and creative VP tells us, "What was exciting to us was to continue with this game with a very tight shooting mechanic, but build it into an open world game to make this kind of countryside epic. From the very first discussion that was very much the goal."
