The rumours surrounding GTA VI have been flying for well over a year now. GTA 6 is rumoured to be released between 2023 and 2025 (depending on what article you read). Locations vary between Miami, London, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Tokyo and Liberty City.
What about London?
London is a viable location for a GTA game. It has had an outing back in the late 1990s on the original playstation (remember them?). It was a hit with gamers on PC and Playstation alike.
Concept video’s from last year suggested that it was based in London. This began the gamer GTA rumour mill. Various sources are saying it’ll be set either in Vice city and a fictional location based on cities in Brazil.
With this in mind, it is unlikely that London will feature in this latest GTA game but let’s not leave anything to chance.
Rumours always abound around games like GTA. It’s been around for so long. Some gamers have grown up with GTA and love to get involved in the chatter surrounding Rockstar’s hit game.
We’ve heard that it’ll be set in the 1980s, but other sources state it’s more modern-day.
A lot of rumours include how similar it’ll be to Red Dead Redemption 2. Including how your vehicle works and how your arsenal and inventory work.
The amazing Netflix series Narcos plays a huge part in the influences of the game.
Connecting Vice City and South American vibes to create a large drug network and climb your way to the top.
Apparently, a prison will be a huge part of it. This is so interesting as does it mean you have to get caught to infiltrate a few gangs?
Police corruption plays a part as two police officers are part of the main cast.
What does Rockstar say?
Not a lot! The previous President of Rockstar left lately under quite a cloud so whilst we doubt they’ll transform it from the tried and tested technique, there will obviously be new influences that come in from new producers, designers and writers.
The game has been in development since at least 2013 so they’ll be aware of most of the location and script work, even if they’re not giving anything away.
Again, this is all conjecture. Some rumours say it’ll only be available on the PS5 (if you can find one) and the new Xbox Project Scarlett. I don’t know how true this is, GTA works well from being available on the previous models of console so we’ll keep that one in the back pocket for now.
GTA 6 Release Date
There’s a two year window for release. Most people think it’ll be 2023 to make sure it’s released on the PS5 and others claim it’ll be 2025 at the earliest. Rockstar has no details about it, and no-one will break their NDA to tell so we’ll have to keep an eye on Rockstar’s twitter to keep updated.
