THQ not scared of GTA 5

Posted By | On 03rd, Nov. 2011

THQ CEO, Brian Farell said that they aren’t scared of the recent GTA V that was announced. They make Saints Row, which is like the older GTA games. The current GTA games have a more realistic tone. He said during a recent investor conference that they aren’t worried about GTA V because their game offers a different experience.

“I went online like everyone to see the GTA trailer,” he said. This comment made me laugh out loud.

“As you point out, it’s a high quality trailer and I think it’s going to be another fantastic game in the GTA series.

“That said, it also shows the completely different positioning of the two games. GTA is still serious and character driven – a very different experience. Saints Row – if you saw our video today – it shows you all the crazy stuff in the game.

“It’s a totally different positioning,” he continued, “and if you read the forums it’s like ‘hey, I love GTA, and I love this game because it’s a very different game that knows what it is and is very entertaining.
