GTA Vice City’s Wanted system was supposed to be much more complex according to a developer.

A former developer who worked on GTA: Vice City has revealed that the game’s Wanted Stars system was supposed to be much more complex than players experienced back in 2002.

A rudimentary Wanted Star system

GTA: Vice City has a very rudimentary Wanted Stars system, just like the early games in the Rockstar series. Police officers in the 80s 3D game usually appear at a fixed distance from players after reaching a wanted level and chase them.

Revelations from a former Rockstar technical director

Former Rockstar Technical Director Obbe Vermeij responded to a question regarding Vice City’s Wanted Stars system on social media, including the fact that the police would appear in a specific location on the map when players were wanted. The former Rockstar employee revealed that the font was initially meant to be more dynamic and that this spawn point was a holdover from that idea.

“In Vice City, I experimented with predefined locations where police cars would appear at just the right time and with the correct initial speed to appear right in front of the player,” Vermeij said.

Evolution of the Wanted Stars system in GTA

Vermeij, who left Rockstar in 2009, said that only a few of these police spawn points remained in the game because they were “too burdensome” to implement.

Rockstar also made the police more advanced, allowing them to use civilian cars to pursue players in long chases and adding more vehicles like helicopters.
