Grand Thef Auto 6 : Release dates, platforms and rumors
(Grand Thef Auto 6) There is no doubt that the new edition of the Grand Theft Auto saga will be the highlight of the new versions of consoles that Sony and Microsoft plan to launch this year and we will tell you everything we know about dates, platforms and rumors of launching.
The developer Rockstar Games has achieved surprising results with the fifth installment of the saga, highlighting that, at the beginning of the year, GTA 5 had become the fourth best-selling game for consoles, beating Red Dead Redemption 2.
All this, despite the fact that GTA 5 was released more than 5 years ago, so a new version by the developer is expected by fans as May water.
With GTA 5 getting a remastered edition for PS5 and Xbox Series X, there is even less reason to expect GTA 6 to be released anytime soon, but still, no one is giving up hope that it could hit new console platforms soon.
Since Rockstar has yet to confirm the existence of GTA 6, there is no set release date. For the past few years, the company has been working on Red Dead Redemption 2, so GTA 6 could be made to wait until 2022 or 2023.
In this way, there would not be enough time to coincide its release with this year’s premium consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X, which will arrive at the end of this 2020.
Given that the GTA 5 remaster for next-gen consoles will be released in the second half of 2021, we expect GTA 6 to arrive sometime but with an eye toward 2022 as an optimistic date.
We know from interviews with company spokespersons that it could be based both in Miami (Vice City in the game) and in Colombia (Bogotá). In the past, Rockstar considered Tokyo as a potential stage, and London has already appeared in one of the GTA 2D releases.
However, Vice City is more likely to be the backdrop to the story, with the possibility that next-gen hardware finally enables what Rockstar craves; have multiple cities in one game.
In a 2012 interview, Rockstar boss Leslie Benzies stated that they wanted to make players able to jump between locations. It would be an incredible achievement and offer players a huge playground with more variety.
Rumors published and now erased by Reddit suggested that the game would span multiple eras, but would remain in the same type of period: the 1970s and 1980s.
To reinforce this rumor there is a letter that you can see in this Reddit post , which clearly shows that Take Two and Rockstar were exploring properties and businesses in Florida in October 2019.
Ultimately, they were interested in interiors so they could “create environments in their games that reflect real-world environments.”
If the information in the first publication is correct, the code name of the Americas Project, which is rumored everywhere, makes a lot of sense, since the secondary city in the game would be in a Latin American country.
As you can read in this Reddit post, Rockstar has renewed its GTA Bogotá trademark every year since 2003. Bogotá is the capital of Colombia and, with the game supposedly influenced by Netflix’s Narcos , that brand could come into play.
We can’t see Rockstar deviating much from the proven formula of an open-world adventure. That’s what players expect … and want. However, obviously, it should be even more open, so GTA 6 will probably allow access to buildings and shops.
Once again, based on the rumors of the ‘jackolantern’ publication, the game will be based on a single protagonist building a Pablo Escobar-style drug empire. Weather will be a more integral part of the gameplay, and the story takes place over several decades.
This would be another step forward for the series, featuring different images, cars, and a main character that ages as the story progresses. One caveat though: All of these rumors suggest an ambitious game, bigger than any previous GTA.
The previously mentioned Kotaku report on the crisis in the study suggested that part of the company’s attempts to improve working conditions would be to cut plans for the next GTA, at least at launch.
The Kotaku report also mentions that there would be a plan to start with a moderate-size release (which by Rockstar standards would still be a great game) that will later be expanded with updates over time.
In terms of official company comments, Rockstar President Leslie Benzies scoffed that GTA 6’s plans are still up in the air. “We don’t know what GTA 6 will be, but we do have some ideas,” Benzies said during an interview with Develop.
Whatever happens, there will surely be an online component as well as single player mode. Others of the same style as Fortnite have revolutionized the landscape with the format of launching new seasons, something that surely many others will emulate to guarantee success.
