Are you looking for some fantastic news regarding GTA 6? Rockstar finally acknowledged in February 2022 that it is developing the next Grand Theft Auto game after years of rumors and speculation.
The GTA 6 sequel to one of the most popular video games has a lot to live up to. When GTA 5 was given away as a weekly freebie, it sold roughly 110 million downloads and crashed the Epic Game Store, but we’re still waiting to find out what the sequel is and when we can obtain it.
Fans of the GTA franchise have had to rely on rumors until now while passing the time by playing the recently released GTA Remastered Trilogy, despite being a bit of a trainwreck at launch. However, rumors have given us a rough sense of what to expect in the upcoming part of the series. According to a video posted by Tom Henderson in July and confirmed by Jason Schreier, we’re looking at a game that tries to build on the foundations laid down by GTA 5, with different protagonists and an ever-evolving metropolis.
However, everything reported here should be taken with a grain of salt, as no one can be positive until the official announcement. However, if you’re interested in the speculations, when the game might be released, or what the setting might be like, this list of GTA 6 details should give you a good picture of what’s currently known and rumored.
Everything we know about GTA 6
After much conjecture, Rockstar has now announced that the next Grand Theft Auto game is in the works. In February 2022, Rockstar declared, “We’re thrilled to confirm that active development for the next installment in the series is beginning.” “We’ll update you as soon as we receive more information, so keep tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for official updates.”
While we wait for a more formal GTA 6 announcement about the new GTA 6, here are all the rumors floating around in the years leading up to it.
When will Grand Theft Auto 6 be released?
We’re still a long way from knowing the dates, but we may be able to narrow it down to a year.
In a press statement headlined “Strategic Rationale and Stockholder Value Creation,” Take-Two Interactive announced the purchase of Zynga, a mobile game firm. The document stated, “Looking ahead, the amalgamated firm is expected to produce a 14 percent compound annual growth rate… during the three years from Take-Fiscal Two’s Years 2021 through 2024.”
“There are just a few titles that can…provide management with the confidence to put out such a robust prognosis,” an investment banking analyst told Axios’ Stephen Totilo. “By FY24, we believe at least one Rockstar IP will be released.” Following that, Cowen research analyst Doug Creutz said that this signals “a likely GTA 6 debut in FY24.” If this is right, Grand Theft Auto 6 might be released sometime between April 2023 and March 2024.
YouTube video broadcast
In a YouTube video broadcast in July 2021, Call of Duty leaker Tom Henderson stated that GTA 6 will be released in 2024 or 2025, and this was corroborated by reporter Jason Schreier, who said on Twitter, “Everything Tom Henderson has mentioned about the game squares up with what I’ve heard.”
According to an SEC filing by Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two from 2020, the business is forecasting a $90 million rise in advertising spending in the fiscal year 2024. There aren’t many games in T2’s catalog that can generate that kind of revenue. It’s the kind of figure you’d expect from their next big thing. T2 recently revealed to Games Industry Biz that the increased promotion is attributed to third-party companies rather than an internal studio such as Rockstar.
The general consensus is that the film will be released around 2024 or 2025. However, Rockstar’s efforts to combat crunch culture, which has hindered prior releases, most notably towards the end of development on Red Dead Redemption 2, could be pushing GTA 6 back.
Is GTA 6 going to be available on PC?
It’s a rather safe wager. Rockstar’s track record with PC versions has been a touch erratic. Nonetheless, the tremendous success of GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC. It provides a strong reason for the corporation to invest in the platform.
Rockstar appears to think the same way, as the Rockstar Games Launcher for PC was released in 2019. It’s hard to believe the firm would build its own game launcher. If it didn’t intend to utilize it to host future games, including a rumored GTA 6. However, we should anticipate a delay in the release of GTA 6 on consoles and PC. On PC, GTA 5 took around a year and a half to release. While RDR2 took nearly the same amount of time.
Is GTA 6 going to be available online?
The online version of GTA 5, Los Santos, has yet to run out of gas. Rockstar continues to add new activities, content, and events to its huge online environment. With internet servers in GTA 4, GTA 5. And both Red Dead Redemption games, it appears that it will be required in GTA 6.
Take-Two has filed a patent that could be relevant to GTA 6.
We heard about a patent submitted by Take-Two in early 2021 named “System And Method For Virtual Navigation In A Gaming Environment,” which was about simulated character pathfinding in large outdoor locations. There’s no proof that this has anything to do with GTA 6, yet it was credited to Rockstar developers. If it has anything to do with the next GTA, it suggests Rockstar is working on some major changes to simulated behavior in its next open-world metropolis.
What additional GTA 6 rumors do you know about?
There have been more rumors about GTA 6 that are largely false. According to The Know, the GTA 6 release date is set for 2021-2022. The next game will be distributed across Vice City and South America, according to rumors. According to a Christian Today rumor, the film will be set in the 1960s in London and will feature time travel. GTA 6 will have numerous huge cities connected by a vast length of land with smaller settlements. According to an anonymous Pastebin article that has since been removed. In this version, the player starts off as a minor crook. And works his way up to running a drug trafficking ring.
According to the poster, an older leak has reappeared, claiming to be the GTA 6 map. It appears to be a parody of a more obscene-looking reported leak from last year. The new post is a bit more convincing, with a split island. Despite the grainy quality, appears as if it could possibly exist in a Rockstar game. Even yet, it’s possible that this is a persistent hoax.
One of our authors is cited as a source in an anonymous Reddit article. (if we knew what GTA 6 was, we’d tell you). According to that post, GTA 6 is called Project Americas. And will take place in Vice Metropolis and a new city modeled on Rio de Janeiro. It’s said to be set between 1970 and 1980, and the protagonist is involved in the drug trade. Vice City-inspired drug empire mechanisms could appear in the game.
According to this rumor, Netflix’s Narcos was a key inspiration, and your automobile would act similarly to the horse in Red Dead Redemption 2 in that it will serve as mobile storage as well as transportation. Characters will speak in their original tongue with subtitles. And the game will be more stylized than the photorealistic Red Dead Redemption 2.
Rockstar has updated the gtavi.com domain
In March 2020, some Reddit users discovered that Rockstar’s parent company Take-gtavi.com Two’s domain was no longer linked to Rockstar’s website. Instead, an error is now returned. People felt this meant Rockstar was intended to use the dormant website domain in some way, potentially with a reveal. But, almost a year later, nothing has happened.
