Dan Houser 'Very Tempted' by Science Fiction GTA

Dan Houser has stated during an interview with French Écrans that he is 'Very Tempted' by the prospect of a Grand Theft Auto or new IP being set in the future. He was quick to point out however that it would not happen unless they had a solid idea. 
"One of our strengths is the consistency of the game world. We're not necessarily the best writers in the world, but we know how to write a video game.
"When we decided to make a Western, it was because we knew we had something to say. We have no interest in going into science fiction for the sake of flying cars and laser guns.
"The best science fiction stories are those that speak about the human condition. So while this idea is very tempting and, by definition, anything's possible in a video game, we lack the essential thing for the moment: a good reason."

We have seen Rockstar set their games in the past and present so surely the next logical step would be the future, however, for now, will will just have to wait and see.
