With more than 100 million titles sold worldwide, GTA V has been a phenomenal success since its release in 2013.
Thanks to its quality of play and regular updates of GTA Online, the franchise, Rockstar Games has managed to sustain the commitment of its users for more than 6 years. After such a success, impatience is gaining ground, and its sequel GTA 6 becomes naturally one of the video games the most anticipated of recent years.
In this article, we have gathered all the rumors about GTA 6, and we will regularly update new information. Then, to know what awaits you after the last exploits of the trio of gangsters of San Andreas, read on.
The rumours at a glance :
Backdrops : Vice City (Miami) and a city in South America (maybe in Bogota).
Periods : the years 70 and 80.
Theme : establish an empire of the drug.
Platforms : PS5, Xbox Series X.
When come out GTA 6 ?.
Waited for 2021-2022.
Six years after the beginning of GTA V, Rockstar Games has not yet confirmed about GTA 6. We do not have any concrete information about the release date of this new album.
In 2018, the franchise has long worked on the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2, and has devoted most of its resources to the completion of this project without really worrying about the arrival of a new GTA.
In addition, regular updates on GTA Online, such as those of The Doomsday Heist (The robbery of the end of the world), have shown that there remains much to be done in the worlds already existing.
There is very little chance that GTA 6 should be completed in time to coincide with the release of the PS5 and Xbox (Series X). After Darion Lowenstein, a former employee at RockStar, GTA 6 won’t come out before the end of the year 2021.
On which platforms will be available in GTA 6 ?.
Xbox Series X.
Still after the noise of the corridor, GTA 6 should be consistent only with the next generations of consoles, the PS5 and the future Xbox (series X), which would be a very bad news for owners of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
However, don’t worry, it could be that it is also available in multi-platforms via streaming.
We hope that its release on PC will be faster than that of previous games. Finally, without surprise, the chances of recovering GTA 6 on Nintendo Switch to the least..
Where will the plot of GTA 6 ?.
Miami (Vice City).
British (probably Bogota).
This is probably the most important question and whose response is the most expected. According to the words of the developers of GTA, the game design begins to take shape once the city has been chosen. These remarks seem to us to be logical since the location has a direct impact on the consistency and feel of the game, and the missions differ completely depending on the cities and on the context.
In the past, Tokyo had been regarded as a part of game potential, however it is more credible than San Andreas, or Vice City, remains the backdrop of the story.
RockStar Games would like to also create a plan comprising all the cities of GTA in one and the same game, so that players travel from one site to another. Some cities should also make their return, like Liberty City.
Another rumor suggests that Rockstar Games is working to recreate the United States as a whole on a single map, to make it the ultimate playground of the GTA. If all these allegations are confirmed then GTA 6 could experience an unprecedented success story.
A post to Reddit, after a sudden removed, that we have added below, suggested that the game should take place over several eras, in the years 70 and 80.
Also note that if this post is reliable, then the codename Projects Americas, it all makes sense since the 2nd city considered could be found in South America and that Rockstar has renewed its licence GTA Bogota each year since 2013.
What will be the gameplay of GTA 6 ?.
It is difficult to imagine Rockstar Games deviate from its successful formula, an adventure in an open world with a narrative, explosive, whatever dark enough, in which car thefts, robberies of banks and the destruction of buildings are commonplace.
Even if the basis of the game remains the same, we aspire to a few changes in the gameplay. While the scene of the three bandits, Michael, Franklin and Trevor in GTA V is iconic, there is nothing to preclude the possible return to a single character. The latter would lead to build an empire of drug lord Pablo Escobar, if we believe the post of “jackolantern”.
And, what would you say if it was a female figure ? In fact, it is quite possible to have a woman at the head of the main storyline, a first for the franchise.
The formation of a duo of protagonists is also discussed, a criminal and a police officer called to support but also to compete. A perspective of the game very interesting and rather plausible, that would switch players into a world hitherto untapped, that of the forces of law and order.
