Rockstar dropped a bit of a surprise earlier today when it revealed Grand Theft Auto V wasn’t going to be a big game, it was going to be freaking huge. Like, bigger than GTAIV, San Andreas and Red Dead combined.
But just how big is freaking huge? Maybe the above image can help. It shows the total size of each game in question’s world, simplified and broken down into a block representing its total area.
Anyone who’s played Red Dead will know that this makes GTAV pretty big, but what’s important to note is that Rockstar have only said GTAV is bigger than the other three listed games combined. Not how much bigger.
To make things safe, I’ve made sure the image above shows GTAV’s world as just about the same size as the other three combined, just in case by “bigger” they really mean “bigger by half a street’s width”.
If they mean “bigger” as in “a lot bigger”, well, adjust accordingly!
