Make the next Grand Theft Auto an MMO game! sign now

This petition is to demand as loyal fans and consumers of the Grand Theft Auto series that Rockstar North make the NEXT Grand Theft Auto an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online Game). Here is our vision:





*begin dream sequence*





Run the whole game on a massive dedicated server, just like World of Warcraft. Thousands of players can coexist on the map at the same time since bulk of the game is handled by the central server.





Proximity voice would be the only way to communicate on a regular basis to avoid thousands of voices from players all over the map in your ear at once. To communicate to players outside of your proximity (think Halo kinda sorta) you would have to use your cell phone and dial up their Gamer Tag or User ID.





Players can form gangs, buy or conquer territory, go on raids against rival gangs, or even accomplish specific missions like robbing a bank, stealing a specific car for cash, or any other number of GTA style missions. People can drive around in cars together, go shopping together, and rob banks together.





Gangs can number in the hundreds of members and leaders can add or remove members at will. In addition, gang members can even recruit bots to be in their gang (like in San Andreas) and direct them using simple commands or map coordinates.





The "match" would be continuous and ongoing for weeks at a time, possibly even infinitely continuous depending on how the game evolves. Points are scored based on property held at the time, missions accomplished, rival gangs fragged, and would NOT be cumulative forever. Meaning your gang can't just get the lead and hold it forever once you've gotten to far to be caught up with. Your gangs score only reflects your current properties and assets and perhaps your activities over the trailing 7 days or so. So if you sit on your butt, your gangs standing will eventually drop.


Punishments for team killing would be strictly enforced, but ANYTHING goes against other teams.





The game would not be intended to be non-stop violence and action like an FPS, but rather a realistic world with sporadic action events that occur when rival gangs cross. It wouldn't be abnormal for 4 players in a team to hop in a car and just drive around to see what's going on downtown. Or watch a fight from the hills.





Even allow mini-events like moto-cross races setup for certain times of the day. Or boxing matches (with real online players as the opponents). I think this would be pretty on par for the GTA style of having games within the game. You can walk into the stadium and view the matches, or sign up for them and participate.





The game is not intended to have a "winner" but is instead intended as a "sandbox" type of live game where the developer sets up the parameters and lets the whole thing evolve naturally. There is no way to win, only to lead, they whole game is setup like a massive experiment in evolution of an online community. The game would evolve naturally like society does through the interactions of the thousands of players.





This is a much needed innovation from the usual 10 minute shoot 'em up matches we are used to on live. I also think it would be incredibly addictive and fun. Anybody who has played 2 player mode on San Andreas and felt yourselves wishing for more know exactly what I am going for here. You gave us a very small taste of awesome, and now we demand the full course meal!





If you (Rockstar) do not meet our demands...





...well we will probably still buy the next GTA anyway! But you KNOW you want to do this game. If ever there was an opportunity to make the biggest game in the history of the universe, this is it.
