Grand Theft Auto VI was confirmed by Rockstar Games few months ago, when GTA V was about to be released for PC. The game was announced after GTA V, which is a fifteenth addition to the famous open world Action-Adventure series in gaming history. The game became the fastest-selling game of all time in the United Kingdom in the first week and worldwide within 24 hours. By mid 2015, it was recorded that around 52 million copies were sold.
What President of Rockstar Games, Leslie Benzies said back in October 2013 regarding the GTA 6, “We’ve got about 45 years worth of ideas we want to do, We don’t know what GTA 6 will be, but we’ve got some ideas.” “It comes from the idea first,” Rockstar President told Develop.
He further stated, “We don’t just go ‘Here’s a mission, off you go’. We spend a lot of time, make a lot of graphs and work out how difficult something is, what the reward is, how you might be feeling after that mission.”
But soon after clear confirmation of GTA 6, rumors were also roaming over the internet, first regarding the release date, then about the mapping or location of the game and also about the characters, because of which gamers are confused a little.
It was first said in few reports that the GTA 6 will be completed and released by 2017 which now seems impossible as new reports and rumors suggests that the development process will take as much time that the game will be released by mid 2020 as the Rockstar Games are planning “entire” United States as the map in GTA 6.
Now that’s a bit confusing as it was never hinted before, but it is, however, possible as the new open-world racing game “The Crew” had whole United States as the map. But that was much shrink as it hardly took two hours to drive throughout the map. Also, because the Rockstar have a good history with mapping and open-world games. But another report suggested that it will have most of the big towns and cities of U.S such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles etc.
It was also being said that the Rockstar’s GTA 6 may use fast travel option in the game as the map will be almost the entire country so it may become difficult for players to complete missions. That is also possible as the fast travel option is included in many games, including famous Far Cry 3.
Apart from this, new reports suggest that the Hollywood actor, director Ryan Gosling will be featured as a main protagonist character in the upcoming GTA 6. And also some reports that the GTA 6 will be named something as “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Days” where the game will set in the early 70’s-80’s featuring mafias and crimes, also reported by Crossmap.
There is also whishlist of the GTA fans who demand few features from Rockstar’s Upcoming GTA 6 usually which they liked from previous GTA games. These things are included:
- First-Person Mode
- Weapon Wheel
All of these can be summarized into the category of Rumors as there is no solid backing to prove these claims. However, some of these can be true also as Rockstar didn’t decided to comment yet regarding all of these claims. Stay tuned for further updates!
