Vince Gilligan Wants Rockstar To Make A GTA Breaking Bad Game

The Badverse is closing its doors (for now), as Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould's Better Call Saul comes to an end after six seasons. Capitalising on the success of Breaking Bad, the series has gone on to be held as one of the best prequels of all time. 

Even though Gilligan claims there won't be a spin-off, there's still a lot of love for this world. So, isn't it about time we got a video game adaptation? Now, the creator of Breaking Bad has championed a video game adaptation with a very specific developer in mind. Imagine a crossover between the Gilliverse and GTA

Could Rockstar Games Make A GTA Breaking Bad Game?

Considering Breaking Bad ended in 2013, the concept of returning for a video game nearly a decade later might seem a little out there. Then again, we continue to make Star Wars games, Ubisoft is working on an Avatar title, and what about Gollum? Just because Walter White lies bleeding out on the floor, that doesn't mean his legacy can't live on. 

Speaking on the "Inside the Gilliverse" podcast, Gilligan explains how he pitched a Breaking Bad game and had Rockstar Games in mind. Although it never came to pass, he still says it makes sense. "I remember saying to the guys, that are off running Apple now, who said yes originally to Breaking Bad, 'Who owns Grand Theft Auto? Can't you have a module, can there be a Breaking Bad [game]?' [It] still makes sense to me! That never came to fruition," said Gilligan.

Given the cultural significance of Breaking Bad - and now Better Call Saul - a video game based in this world sounds like a goldmine of possibilities. "There have been quite a few attempts at video games, some of them kind of made it to market," continued Gilligan. "We tried to do a VR experience with the Sony PlayStation VR headset. We did a mobile game that lasted for a little while." The game he's talking about is the short-lived Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements mobile title that bowed out after just over a year. 

 

How Would A Breaking Bad GTA Game Work?

Gilligan admitted that three or four ideas for a Breaking Bad game were thrown around, but ultimately, it didn't work. "Making a video game is damn hard," added Gilligan, "But what little I learned about it through this process, it literally takes years and millions of dollars… Sometimes even with the title with the name behind it, it can still not be good if the content's not good." He sagely concluded by saying, "You can't just bank on the name," which is good news considering how many greedy creators would want to simply bank on a popular IP.

Sadly, the musings of Gilligan are far from getting us behind the wheel of Walt and Jesse's infamous RV to race around San Andreas. GTA is a massive beast on its own, while Rockstar Games is all-in on GTA 6 right now - at the expense of Red Dead Online. In some alternate reality where we could even get our head around brokering rights between Rockstar and Gilligan, making Grand Theft Auto: Albuquerque is a pretty niche idea. Still, imagine a scene where Jesse Pinkman squares up to Trevor Philips and calls him a b*tch. It's definitely a game we'd play.
