How many of you have played GTA 5 for many hours? This is a game that simply everyone loves. Most of the players are usually kids and teenagers. Yet, some grownups also like to relax by playing this game. It’s the best selling adult video game of all time and, according to this great article published by Betway, GTA 5’s sales during the first 3 days after it was launched back in 2013 totalled approximately $1 billion. This makes it by far the most successful video game launch in history and better than nearly all blockbuster movies are able to achieve in their opening weekends.
There is good news for GTA fans – GTA 6 in the pipeline and will hopefully be released soon.
Still, there is a lot of uncertainty about GTA 6. Believe it or not, currently, no one knows exactly when this game is going to be released. Recent press reports suggest that the story of the game has been finalized – but that it’s still in relatively early development. So perhaps we shouldn’t be expecting to play it anytime in the very near future.
Over recent years and months there have been many many rumors about GTA 6 that we want to share with you here in this post.
First of all, Rockstar Games is a game publishing company that always works in secret. They do not ever announce directly when some of their games are going to be released. This is probably a good marketing move because people simply talk about this subject online and offline. Still, more than 6 years have passed from the moment when GTA 5 was released. In the time since then, this company did not waste their time. They were focused primarily on developing another game – Red Dead Redemption 2.
Still, we are optimistic. The trailer of the game is not going to be published soon. That is a clear thing.
Let’s see what other rumors can be found online.
Steve Ogg Rumor
You probably know who Steve Ogg is. He is well-known as an actor who plays Trevor in GTA 5. He attended Brazil Game Show back in October and he said that GTA 6 is coming soon. However, he said this is not any kind of inside knowledge. He calculated that Rockstar Games usually needs around 7 or 8 years to develop a new game. So, this means he expects that GTA 6 will be launched until the end of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021. This truly makes sense, doesn’t it?
This Scottish website announced one interesting thing. They informed the public that Rockstar’s HQ that is located in Edinburgh has been tearing down the banner of the Red Dead Redemption 2. They did that 2 weeks (from the moment we write this article). Well, this maybe doesn’t say too much. There are different reasons why they could potentially do that. For instance, maybe they only want to replace it or to redesign it. Still, what if they want to add a banner of the new game? We will see that soon.
Rumors from Reddit
We are maybe looking childish, but we are here to share all the rumors that we have heard. There was a Reddit post that is currently deleted that talked about GTA 6.
The first thing that this post talked about is – location/maps. Based on this deleted post, we can conclude that GTA 6 could be set across multiple decades. More precisely, we talk about the period between the 1970s and 1980s. Besides that, GTA 6 will be set in different locations. The first one is based on (a version of Miami); another will be based on the so-called Liberty City. The third one will be a fictional city that is based in Rio de Janeiro.
The main character/protagonist is going to be a rising drug lord named Ricardo. The post says that game developers were inspired after watching Netflix’s Narcos series. As we said, the entire game will lead you through different periods. More precisely, when you make the progress, you will find yourself in different periods.
The release date was not mentioned in this post. Still, they announced that the game will be published soon. Besides that, they mentioned that GTA 6 is going to be a bit more expensive. We suppose that big fans will not hesitate to spend a fortune on this game.
Still, we do not want to say that these pieces of information are correct. However, what if the post is removed because it discovered the things that people should not know? As we said, Rockstar Games Company does not announce anything in advance.
Project Americas: GTA 6 in South America?
If you are a big fan of YouTube, then you have probably heard about the channel named “The Know”. They talk about different subjects and GTA 6 was also one of them. Thi channel claims they have an inside source. This source told them that this game is going to be released somewhere between 2021 and 2022. Well, if that’s the case, then we will have to wait a bit longer.
Besides that, they claim that the entire game is developed under the name “Project America” The reason why they gave this name to a project is simple. This channel claims that players will be able to fly between the US and South Africa in the game. Another reason for that is the movie “American made” where Tom Cruise plays the main role. It is an old movie and we already said that Rockstar programmers are inspired by the 1980s.
Journalists asked Rockstar Corp owners about this rumor. Logically, they did not get the answers.
All these rumors lead to one thing – GTA 6 is going to be released soon but for many fans, not soon enough. If we are going to be objective, the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 sounds like a logical deadline.
There is also one thing that confirms that GTA 6 will be launched soon. Rockstar Games Company is in a need of dozens of programming positions. We are sure that they do not hire new people just for fun. There is a good reason for that, and we hope GTA 6 is one of them.
In 2013, Leslie Benzies, the president of Rockstar, said that his team has 45 years’ worth of ideas. We hope 7 years are going to be enough for those 45 years.
What do you think? Have you heard any other rumors?
